Censoring the life of the Ramchal on Wikipedia.

There is a very interesing discussion taking place behind the scenes of a Wikipedia article on the Mussar movement.

It seems a user keeps deleting three things about R. Moshe Chaim Luzzato, that he wrote plays in Hebrew and Italian, said he was the messiah and was considered a heretic by many rabbis in his day. Someone does not want this in his biography, others insist that it is ridiculous to leave them out. There is also a disagreement about whether or not his authoring plays in Hebrew and Italian is praiseworthy or embarassing.

Read it all here.
