Halacha - Hashem's name on a digital screen
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I recently had the opportunity to discuss this subject with the author of an authoritative Sefer on the topic.

First of all, the accepted Halacha does not follow their view and everyone who uses these programs is relying on the lenient opinions.

Furthermore, he questions their understanding of the mechanics of a computer monitor, as the screen refreshes itself many times a second. Consequently, one is not really erasing, merely preventing the Name from being re-drawn.
