Hah, nice. Is this an appropriate time to ask what I can only assume has
been asked a lot, but I have only heard and found brief answers, about not
only why North/Green goes by a second name (to simply hide his business?)
and if the SEP members actually know and don't care or don't know...

It is sad and confusing. The WSWS seems to have a lot of people in varying
places writing for it with some (usually up till the conclusion) really good
articles. And the SEP seems to be fairly wide spread -- though not large.
