Re this post on Hirhurim:
I think that the talmid who wrote the article for TorahWeb misunderstood Rav Schachter, R' Gil Student misunderstood the talmid, the commenters misunderstood R' Gil, and I misunderstood the commenters. But don't get me wrong - I'm Orthodox!
Also, lamedzayin has a good comment.
As if my agreement/approval means anything, while I differ somewhat with Rav Schachter in this regard, Rav Schachter's is certainly a legitimate opinion with good basis.
Update: I should add - I was in Rav Schachter's shiur for 5 years and in Dr. Steinfeld's class for about 3.
