Re: JasonK, no you're wrong - bile is good... everyone needs a jew!
This is to be taken sarcastically, not orally. I agreed with Kottke.
Judith: I find playing up anti-semitism to be an excellent way of making clear the stereotypes and why these ideas are so flawed. The Metafilter thread didn't stretch to 255 comments out of "oh bother, they've swiped our design!" but instead a gleeful violent mob with a just cause and dozens of (apparently) very rude emails. So yeah, Mefi were a mob. Or, in another way, if the central MeFi discussion was removed and each one of you happened to stumble on the stolen design - would you have had the same passion? I doubt it.
ENAJ wasn't a term I made up - it was a jewish friend's silly remark. I just liked it.

Still, probably not the best thing to say in a community such as this. It's pretty much guaranteed to induce invectives.
