Comrade Ho,

In the 21st century, the Internet will be as key to the revolutionary
struggle of the working class as the Gutenburg press was to the peasant
rebels of the 17th century. This powerful medium must not be abused, since
it offers the possibility of uniting progressive forces worldwide in the
final battle against capitalism. When you added Marxmail subscribers to
your list without their permission, it not only violated their democratic
rights, it created a backlash against your email list. It would have been
far better to send an announcement to me, which I would have forwarded to
Marxmail. It is entirely likely that I would have subbed, as would have a
number of other comrades. I hope you learn from your mistakes. That is the
only way our movement can grow.
