With all due respect, Dr. Huckleberry, I think that the issue is more layered and nuanced that it might seem at first. Look: I already know that Dr. Peterson isn't going to edit the post. There is simply no way in hell that he's going to do that, regardless of how nice a gesture it would be. And as Dr. Robbers already pointed out, Peterson failed to upvote it--despite the fact that Kiwi is allegedly his "friend." Part of the reason why Peterson won't edit it is because he's thinking to himself: "No! I won't be censored!" I can guarantee that there are images of American flags unfurling in his mind, and he's ready to throw down over his 1st Amendment rights, and so on: "I won't be silenced!". Plus, I'm sure he's of the belief (sort of like Mark Z. of Facebook) that he shouldn't be held responsible for things that others say in the "Comments" of his blog.
*But* there is an interesting bit of history here, in that DCP, Hamblin, Kiwi, and many other Mopologists have aggressively held Dr. Shades's feet to the fire, for more than a decade, about the criticism that gets posted *here*. Just ask Dr. Shades how much grief he's had to take from these guys on this particular issue. And Dr. Shades, I believe, *has* deleted things at certain times. Meanwhile, scores of people have been banned and censored for far less on "Sic et Non."
As for "Mopologist" as a term--I'm glad to consider other options, but "Mopologist" has a lot of definitional value, I think. You can't just say "apologist," because that lumps these guys in with *all* apologists, including non-LDS apologists, like C.S. Lewis. As much as they'd like to be compared to him, it just doesn't make sense. So why not "Mormon Apologists," then? Well, again: that lumps them in with people like Richard Bushman and Teryl Givens, who just don't behave the way they do. (Exhibit A, at the moment, would be Midgley's weird fixation on Gina Colvin.) So, Mopologists is a useful term because you instantly know what it refers to: defenders of Mormonism who behave in rancid ways. This includes Peterson and Midgley, obviously, but also people like Kiwi, Greg Smith, John Gee, Allen Wyatt, and quite a few others. Is the term "offensive"? I don't think it is: it's descriptive. If it's "offensive," it's because the people it refers to are "offensive" in their behavior.
