comment Questions with ~か or without: how to choose?
I do not know what grammarians say, but “どこですか?” is perfectly acceptable as long as daily usage is concerned. It is more of the matter of style than the matter of correctness.

comment What is the real difference between the proper use of the words さむい and つめたい?
I cannot explain the reason, but I find both 空気は寒い and 空気が寒い unnatural, and instead prefer to say 空気が冷たい if we really want to talk about the air explicitly.

@Dave: If the asker or someone else wants to, he/she can try to find evidences for what I wrote here. But if you want to keep saying that this answer is a noise, I am fine.

comment Use of 厨 on the Internet
@Dave: I posted it because in my opinion, it is an educated guess and it is not noise. If you downvoted it because it does not contain an evidence, it is fine, but whether it is a noise or not is a subjective matter.

comment わ usage at the end of sentences
The difference is who they use, but that sounds self-evident…. Maybe the question can be phrased more precisely.

Sorry, I had overlooked the line “original (misleading) answer.” If you want to keep the original answer, please feel free to do so.

Your answer still contains “いきち is basically how it was read before WW2 (and then changed after simplification of the language to avoid confusion with other words ).”

comment Pronunciation of 閾値 : いきち or しきいち?
You still claim the same thing and the same question still remains: where did you get the idea that the pronunciation しきいち is used “to avoid confusion with other words”? I checked the two additional links you provided, but they do not state it either. I am not saying that this reason is incorrect; I do not know if it is true or not. But I am pointing this out to you because you may have written it out of misunderstanding of some of the sources.

As I said, the Wikipedia article you linked to does not state that the pronunciation しきいち came into use to avoid confusion with other words. “「閾」の字は日本人になじみが薄く、第二次大戦後、当用漢字外とされたため、字義である「敷居(しきい)」の語を当てたものと思われる。” means “the letter 閾 was not included in toyo-kanji after WWII because many Japanese people were not familiar with this letter, and I think that the letter 閾 was pronounced by replacing it with the word 敷居 (しきい) which was the meaning of the letter 閾.”

(1) This is a reasonable guess, but note the phrase “と思われる” (which means “I think”) in the article. It is not backed up with any source. Strictly speaking, this description should be either improved or deleted according to Wikipedia’s policy which requires verifiable sources. (2) At least the Wikipedia article does not state that the pronunciation しきいち came into use to avoid confusion with other words.

From my personal experience, I hear both pronunciations in technical discussions and I do not think that there is any difference.

Watch out for the order you write: among the six words you wrote, 冷たい (cold), 熱い (hot) and 温かい (warm) are for objects and 寒い (cold), 暑い (hot) and 暖かい (warm) are for weather.
