This has reached the tipping point. I have just unsubbed Sayan.

I first ran across Sayan in the mid-1990s on the 
alt.politics.socialism.trotsky newsgroup where he had the same modus 
operandi. This is Sayan from 11 years ago:

"Doesn't the impossibility of socialism in a single country, indicate 
the general impossibility of socialism?

"I would like to hear some counter-arguments from the socialists here."

It is one thing to play intellectual games on apst, but I didn't set up 
Marxmail for dormitory bull sessions. It reminds me of 35 years ago when 
I was selling the stupid Militant newspaper door-to-door in college 
dorms. Everybody wanted to hear "counter-arguments" from socialists. 
This is not the proper place for that.
