Over in Steven I.'s Fiddish comment section, I'm debating the questions of barely-visible crustaceans. For a change, I'm defending the gedolim who drank tap water (and am being blasted, fairly I suppose, as a charedi for my efforts).
Could the Rav perhaps have held, like R' Idle, that being dead, they were no longer crustaceans, but rather ex-copepods, and that having joined the choir invisible they weren't worth looking for?
