of course we DO hide content because of the writers.
the writer (Gilad Atzmon) seems to me to clearly anti-semitic
therefore this article should be hidden asap.

There was a discussion about Gilad Atzmon earlier in the
year over this article:

Purim Special: From Esther to AIPAC

Gilad Atzmon [repost]

this is definitely not racist and the author takes some
pain to make sure it isn’t. i wouldn’t hide it but i
feel it’s on the edge.

I don’t think it’s racist, although it’s certainly
guaranteed to piss people off, which is fine. I was
queasy about the following line:

“Though some may dispute the numbers (Shraga Elam), and
others question the validity of memory (Ellis,
Finkelstein), no one goes as far as revisionism, not a
single Holocaust religion scholar dares engage in a
dialogue with the so-called ‘deniers’ to discuss their
vision of the events or any other revisionist
scholarship.”

Never having heard of this Gilad fellow before, I was
waiting for some kind of endorsement of the
“revisionist” view (which never appeared). Basically
it’s a controversial article, which is somewhat on the
edge but seemingly meant as a positive contribution. So,
leave it showing, I’d say.

Yoss

ps I also have no problems with saxophonists writing in
academic style. We should hide all posts by Kenny G on
general principle, though.
