Shipping copies of two letters i recieved this morning and my reply to M1,
friends,and Usenet. I have removed the names because this issue is purely
political and not personal! Hopefully a communist will see that these
letters get to the "unity" list.

Let me first say this. Since the list came to my knowledge i have stated
that I would naturally follow all rules that the list made in relation to
table manners. However that i i would oppose any exclusion of any political
trend in the workers movement. This goes for all the lists at Jefferson Village.

The other point is that this is the second letter today that i recieved
which places certain conditions on my perticipation on the Unity list. The
other is from the moderater Bill which i am going to reply too also. I will
send you a copy of his letter and my reply. Naturallly my question is why is
it that i am being grilled about my approach to the list and only me!? Where
as others can say things like the following

and be allowed to not only join the list, but write such filth while i am
banned from taking part and can not defend myself. I think this behavior
shows that the list has one set of demands for Malecki including what i
think about this or that or putting my participation on the list to the vote
and another democracy for all others who join the list! Including people
that have attacked with viscious personal slanders or more subtle methods
like Doug from the new left economic rag.. Is this correct? I think it is a
correct evaluation of the present situation. I think it is both wrong and
clearly stinks of class byist and racist incinuations directed at poor and
working class people. A sort of "unity" list at Jefferson Village aparthied.
I am getting extremely angry about this obvious disgusting behavior by those
responsible for the list!

Firstly I think you putting these special conditions on Malecki should be
seen in the light of the above apartheid system that seems to being formed
in regards to certain poor and working class people. Do you have a list of
conditions for blacks also? Has anyone else on the list be forced to follow
these conditions? When i recieve and answer from you to the affirmative then
naturally i also will adher to these conditions. Until then i take it has
and insult and system of apathied directed at me personally and perhaps
blacks, other minority groups, or poor and working class people in general!

>However, if too many voices are raised in protest, I will

So you are in fact prepared to enforce a undemocratic and apathied system
based on list democracy! I find this amazing coming from anyone claiming to
be Communist or Socialist.
>I hope you accept this way of dealing with it.

No (someone's name) and this is why!

Finally because of the unbelieveable charcter of the present trend of
apathied and inquistional questions directed at poor and working class
people in order to even get on the "unity" mailing list at Jefferson
Village. I am posting this and my reply to the "unity list moderater, to M1,
numerous orgainisations and friends and to Usenet.
Please do not take this as a personal attack and i intend to delete any
names in order that this does not involve into a personal feud. The issue of
Apathied and atomsphere of the Spanish inquisition developing on the "unity"
list at Jefferson Village is a very dangerous turn. It is and insult to poor
and working class people and if continued will be fought and defeated by
communists in the future I hope. I will do my best to be in the lead of the
struggle against this trend in defeating it and sweeping it onto the trash
pile of history!

Warm Regards
Bob Malecki
