Hey, Join In At The Rabbi Horowitz Hatefest...

... going on at YeshivaWorld.

Sickening. One commentator actually accused Rabbi Horowitz of writing "total kefirah."

UPDATE: To his credit, the YW editor removed some of the more inflammatory posts, including the "total kefirah" comment.

FURTHER UPDATE (5:20 pm): Now the whole thing is gone.

For the record, my last post there basically said that you don't have to agree with everything (or anything) that Rabbi Horowitz says, but at least present a cogent argument why you disagree with him rather than resorting to ad hominem attacks.

Why is there in the internet at least is there an inverse relationship between the "frumkeit" of a website or a commentator and their ability to logically convey an argument without inflammatory language. I hope its because the serious intelligent charaidi is busy learning and not online.

What was the post's objection regarding Rabbi Horowitz? (Never mind the comments.)
