Zero0000 (talk·contribs) removed a new addition as well as previously established content discussing the work of Rabbi Gil Student on internet-based antitalmudism (it's not criticism, is it?) There is little doubt that Student is one of the few to address the problem head-on, and he should be regarded as an authority on the subject.
I do however agree that mentioning his website directly is a little overdone, and we should stick to the consensus version that discusses his findings. JFW | T@lk 15:05, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
What the section needs badly is a third-party source. It looks like preaching at the moment. The ADL has no expertise in Talmud and its document is a useless polemic. Student's page has a higher standard, but Student is an activist and doesn't deny it. Sections of such low quality would not survive for long in most of Wikipedia.

I totally hear what you're saying, but I think there is sufficient notability and verifiability to make it stand until a decent secondary source comes along. What we cannot do is pretend that online anti-Talmudism doesn't exist and leave the concept un-discussed. JFW | T@lk 17:15, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
The BBC has a nice pluralistic article on the Talmud on its website (link). It might be suitable as a secondary source, e.g. with regards to Talmud study by women. JFW | T@lk 17:15, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Since the copyright to the Soncino Press edition of the Talmud was restored in 1994, how can www.halakhah.com and the internet3 archive distribute it without the copyright notice? Samuel Stevens 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:32, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
