The Marxism list was created in 1998 not as a platform for people to 
call for the need for socialism (or communism). To even waste bandwidth 
issuing such a call indicates to me that you don't understand why it was 

It was created for experienced Marxists to discuss the finer points of 
Marxist theory and strategy/tactics. By analogy, a mailing list on 
psychotherapy geared to professionals would not need a subscriber 
posting messages to the effect that neurosis is a bad thing.

I am making this public to the list because I am afraid that a private 
message to you would be a waste of time since you seem to be persistent 
in posting these "we need communism" type emails.
