What an idiot. I have been writing for swans.com for 4 years or so 
and just the other day Gilles posts a comment on my blog 
characterizing my reply to Stan Goff as "intellectual masturbation". 
The entire leftwing of the Internet is involved in a serious 
discussion of the issues Stan raises and I am denigrated for putting 
in my two cents. Considering the fact that he didn't even bother to 
raise these questions with me privately, I had no recourse except to 
sever my relationship to swans.com. I am not the first one, btw, who 
has gotten on Gilles's wrong side. There is a long line of people 
that he has pissed off. Oh well, capitalism has a way of distorting 
human relationships and I am no angel myself. But by the same token I 
have the good sense enough not to start an online publication that 
requires a certain amount of mutual respect between editor and 
writer. I understand that I am too much of a prick. I guess other 
people have a more elevated view of themselves.
