The Rebbe required anyone who wanted to look into this holy of holies Siddur to visit Mikvah before reading it.

Silly comparison

That was in person not via a digital view quite different.

Why so quick to dismiss it?

Why say that it looses its holiness through a screen? Maybe it isn’t exactly the same as in person, but so much? Keep in mind that the Rebbe didn’t want people to look at it, just to give you an idea of its holiness and how it should be treated. Is it wrong to make it available to the public? Maybe, but a bit of sensitivity for matters of holiness would be appreciated. The bochur who touched it without proper preparation has lasting effects from it to this day. (His identity is no secret)

Until recently people davened whatever “nusach” they wanted. It’s likely what we’d consider Sephard.
