Krum and Sources

Great and scary post by Krum.

The answer, of course, is to continue discussing ideas. As people become more comfortable and as more knowledgeable people open up blogs, the sources quotes will increase. Talmud Torah on Blogs, a crazy thought (or not so crazy).

As to the Slifkin backlash, as we discuss ideas, questions will be raised. Rabbonim will be forced to respond (R. Feldman being an example). While some letters will be found wanting, others won't. Eventually, the level on a whole will move up, and we'll begin using the sources that Krum worries we're missing out on.
