Say no to Maoism on the net.  I must say that I've gone through the
cathartic phase and now I'm just sick of them.  Can't they make it a little
more colourful if they have to annoy me - how about using those Maoist
classics like 'flunkey', 'running dog', 'lackey', etc.

I must say, however, that I was interested to hear from Maoists who don't
support the Khmer Rouge.  Every Maoist I've met has.  There are still two
of them at a particular South Australian university who wear Mao hats and
praise Brother #1.  Both come from bourgeois backgrounds.  They are not
listened to by very many people and are derided by other tavern-dwellers as
'The Pol Pot Appreciation Society'.  They are really very boring.

MIM is too.  Do you really think I read your dogma?  It's hard enough now
to read all of the interesting material on this list without having to wade
through Maoist slime.

pissed off,
