I hesitate to weigh in on a situation that has proven so volatile already.

But if anyone has specific grievances with someone at Jacobin (and having
followed the brouhaha more carefully than I might have liked, I'm not sure
what they could be), they should name names and post links, not engage in
vague innuendos.

Here's a quick visual overview of the whole sorry mess to date:

It seems largely accurate, although its dismissal of Stoker is both odd and
annoying. Sure, she, like any of us, is probably not such a big deal in the
scheme of things. And Jacobin's secular leftist writers are? Please.
