Ahh!! Cognitive dissonance!!!

From Deiah Vedibur:
Who Was R' Shlomo Dubno?

In the past, many considered Reb Shlomo [e.g., Solomon Dubno] to have been one of the infamous Berlin maskilim because at one time he collaborated with Moses Mendelsohn, the father of haskalah. The problem with this theory is that later, when Dubno was about to publish a Chumash with his own commentary, he received letters of approbation from many great rabbonim, including the greatest among the Vilna Gaon's talmidim, the brothers Reb Chaim and Reb Zelmele of Volozhin.
