I find your remarks here to be patronizing and covertly insulting. They
add offer no strategic or critical analysis to the discussion. You may
criticize, without criticizing, all you like, you may refute, without
reasoning all you like. I suspect that a comedian making a parody of my
comments would go over well among the reactionary public whose views on
this seem to be much in line with yours. Generally speaking, when one is
stereotyped negatively in context of opposing capitalist politics one is
doing something right. ;-)

The greatest danger to a movement is not its opposition, but the effect
that opposition has on the movement. This list seems to be a good
example of that axiom. If this list is a reflection of the generalized
movement, we're in TROUBLE! I'm glad I'm here to witness this.
