Jeff, my suggestion is reading the two threads regarding this.
On the one hand you have people trying to engage in dialogue and on the other you have people shouting and ranting about a word they don't like and providing neither logical argument or even basic reasoning. This has happened twice and is continuing.
In the context it is used on RI it is NOT anti-Semitic at all.
nomo has provided no evidence of members anti-Semitism other than he feels this word is. His feelings are his business and do not constitute evidence.
His posting above is incredibly disingenuous given how people have tried to engage him beyond what appear to be his "talking points" that are just repeated - rational argument is just shouted down, sensible questions are ignored or mocked or themselves taken as evidence of anti-semitism.
Seriously, Jeff - *please* look at the threads in questions - they illustrate very clearly what I am talking about. Discourse depends on willingness
to engage first, vocabulary later.
Being ranted at isn't discourse.
