10 top reasons I'm on this list:

10. Get free dollops of Doug Henwood's wit and brilliance.
9.  Get good advice on books (hints on Irish history).
8.  Got invited to review a book for a high-toned academic journal.
7.  Had opportunity to engage in one of the most interesting debates in
my life with Jim Lawler on the NEP.
6.  Discovered Cockshott and Cottrill's "Toward a New Socialism",
probably the most important book written in the last 20 years.
5.  Had a chance to exchange ideas with Tim Wolforth, an ex-SWP'er who
wrote a fabulous memoir on his experience in both the Barnes and Healy zoos.
4.  Discovered that there was a "problem" with the LTV. Led me to further
reading and to assuage my doubts that there's any problem at all.
3.  Gave me a chance to tweak the nose of a living flesh-and-blood
(albeit cyberspace) CP'er (hello Scott).
2.  Gave me a chance to tweak the nose of Justin Schwartz.
1.  Gave me the opportunity to re-discover Marxism--what a joy!
