    put Mondoweiss off-limits on dKos is directed toward a collective. Blankfort? Pretty awful stuff, from what I've seen linked here. So then propose a list of authors / contributors whose antisemitism should disqualify them as individuals, and that list can be subject to discussion. A broadly-sweeping, guilt-by-association proposal to place all content from Mondoweiss off-limits simply doesn't sit well with me; not because I'm a regular reader of the site (as I said above, I rarely visit there), but because I have a fundamental problem with censuring a collective for the opinions of individuals. It's too general an indictment, and too ripe for abuse. Will it take more time and effort to identify individual authors and discuss them as individual cases? Of course. However, as I also said above, when proposing to limit 'speech' (understood here as limiting references to outside sites) I believe it better to err on the side of caution and admit more than less...
