Isn't that just a tiny bit exaggerated Richard? I mean, there seems to
be no evidence that the moderators have censored any postings, or have I
missed something? (Wouldn't be the first time.)

With this I completely agree! I felt a sense of "condescension" from
that posting about the "young Turks" or whatever. As my teen aged nephew
might say, "What's the deal with that?" I imagine the comment/analysis
was well intended but it was also revealing; i.e., of just how "set"
some perceive the power relations structuring Korean studies practices
and discourses to really be.
