For what it's worth, 
http://tendancecoatesy.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/platypus-versus-the-weekly-worker-negative-dialectics/ 
is a *long* article on this group. Risking his reputation, 
Tendance refers to me this way:

"Louis Proyect, an influential participant in the American left, 
has compared Platypus to the British ‘Eustonites’."

He disagreed with this assessment and I countered in the comments 
section.
