BTW Olachea and Godena in addition to running their "organization,"
JUSTIN still moderate the maillist marxism-international which
was the immdediate father of this list.  From what used to be a very
lively list, now all it consists of is the occasional musings of Godenea
or sometimes Olaechea.  Long time members of this list may
remember that it was created in reaction to the demolition of
the old marxism-international list by these two persons.

Dumain, you might be interested to know is now moderating his
onwn Marxist philosophy list.  He is also the librarian/archivist
and webmaster for the CLR James Institute
I personally haven't seen too much bile from him lately, so I don't
know if that means that he is dumping his bile elsewhere or if
he has perhaps, purged himself of his bile.

I have seen no sight or sound from him in months, certainly
in his old haunts like the marxism-thaxis list, or on Usenet.
I haven't seen a new issue of Cockroach in quite a long time.

Perhaps not.  Even if you could bring these people back together
into one forum on a one time basis, it would take Proyect
months to clean up the resulting mess.
