I think the moderators, both past and present (including myself), have
demonstrated sufficient committment to marxism-international, which,
incidentally, celebrated its first birthday yesterday.

And, again:

>Theirs is the noble cause of categorising Castro as
>a fascist.  A cause which BTW they share with the CIA...

The moderators have no such "cause", nor does the CIA.  If I were the
anal-retentive, rule-worshipping prick you, apparently, wish prevailed at
m-i, I would kick your ass off the list for linking us with the cops.  But
I'm not, so I won't. 

The issue here is the freedom of the international Marxist movement to
criticize -- and to criticize freely -- the actions of an actually existing
socialist power.  Adolfo has done so, frankly and without apology.  His is a
voice that needs to be heard.

Louis Godena,
co-moderator
