It seems that every time an issue like this comes up you make reference to values "our grandparents fought for" as if that ended the argument. To the extent that we all should be allowed to enjoy rights borne of the sacrifice of others, including the right to free speech, you're right. What you seem to forget, or perhaps don't realize, is that along with the rights we enjoy, comes a responsibility to behave according to the values of a civilized society.
I would readily agree with you that the post should be allowed to remain, however offensive to others, if the poster had identified him/herself instead of remaining under cowardly cover of anonymity. At least when Ernst Zundel spouts his poison we know where it's coming from.
