	Surely, if your aim is to invite debate, it is a good
idea for persons cited in an article to be passed copies of the
article, even before publication. You may even get responses that
can be published at the same time as the original IYSWIM.

	I'd support Philip Ferguson's point as well. There are
far too many journals to subscribe to (you just could not afford
or have the time to read them all) and it is in the interest of
the magazine that the web version is freely available to
visitors, as they do for Monthly Review for example. Do comrades
want to do a job and reach the masses or what?
