I do not participate on this site any longer, except to respond to comments regarding my own text, if that text is unavailable in another form. I do not accept the political moderation atmosphere here, it is not compatible with open science. Unfortunately, this seems to be a recurring pattern on such sites--- they grow with promises of open participation, and then shut down in a phase transition of censorious moderatorship. Hopefully physicsoverflow.org will be the first exception to this rule, as the policies there were crafted specifically to avoid this phenomenon.

comment Does a Weak Energy Condition Violation Typically Lead to Causality Violation?
The Hawking radiation is not in a consistent classical theory, it's semiclassical (classical gravity and quantum fields) and the back-reaction is inferred, and is not added in a self-consistent way to make a new theory. The answer does not answer the question which is about pure classical GR. If you mocked up Hawking radiation as some sort of classical negative-energy flux into the black hole accompanied by positive energy emissions, it is not clear you would not get causality violations at the same time.

revised Can every particle be regarded as being a combination of Black holes and White holes?
