Excuse me? I never tell people what to say or not to say. I only ask
them to respect my instructions to end a thread. If Yoshie Furuhashi had
simply laid off Iran for a month or two, she'd still be here even though
I thought her politics were clearly much more Islamist than Marxist.

Whatever. I don't think it makes much difference whether I post there or
not. It mostly consists of SWP'ers patting each other on the back. Who
needs that. And furthermore, I don't think that blogs are the best place
to have a debate. They are far too "vertical", with the blog owner on
top. Mailing lists are more horizontal. Plus, he moderates every message
before it appears. Pre-moderation really puts me off, even by somebody
who calls himself Lenin.
