Piotrus and Volunteer Marek, among others, are Wikipedians mentioned in the
above article. I contacted those two individuals because I felt it was fair
for them to be aware that people were discussing them in an off wiki venue.
Anyways, Piotrus said that I could share their response:
Thank you for the information, but I am unsure how to find that particular
discussion. I am aware of the general context (the article), which is being
discussed in some places on Wikipedia. My quick comment on it is that this
article contains numerous errors and inaccuracies (mixed with an occasional
fair point or critique, nothing is white and black), and seems
significantly based on data provided to the researches by a very tainted
source, i.e. globally banned user Icewhiz, who was first topic banned the
Polish-Jewish topic area by ArbCom, then site banned from Wikimedia
Projects for harassment of myself, Volunteer Marek and others. You are
welcome to post my above message there through a direct quote.

I would like to bring this scholarly article to your urgent attention:
Wikipedia’s Intentional Distortion of the History of the Holocaust (
though it's title is somewhat suspicious it describes a very specific
problem on English Wikipedia which is tragic and unacceptable. I'm happy to
help any way I can to solve this but I hope that admins will act on this as
soon as possible.
