I have made some modifications to the Marxmail website based on recent
problems. They are enclosed in the brackets below.

Home page:
The Marxism list is a worldwide moderated forum for activists and scholars
[in the Marxist tradition] who favor a non-sectarian and non-dogmatic
approach. It puts a premium on independent thought and rigorous but civil
debate. While it is a high-volume list, it has a very good "signal to
noise" ratio. It is also globally representative, with subscribers from
over 15 different countries.

Subscription page:
MODERATION PRINCIPLES: The Marxism mailing list is extremely permissive.
There is only one thing that is frowned upon strongly. If you come to the
list with the attitude that you are a true Bolshevik, who needs to convert
'Mensheviks' to your beliefs, you will be unsubbed. Members of
self-declared vanguard parties who can adjust to the tolerant atmosphere of
the list are more than welcome, since they usually bring with them years of
Marxist study and political experience. [We also welcome non-Marxists who
come to the list in a respectful attitude, desiring to learn more. However,
if you have decided for yourself that Marxism is wrong and that your
purpose on the list is to struggle to convince others of that, you should
not subscribe. The Internet has many forums where Marxists and
anti-Marxists can debate. This is not one of them.]
