Gary and Patrick:

It seems to me you both are interested parts in this conflict given your
relation with URPE and RRPE. This is not a mere "legal conflict" because at
its *origin* there is a matter of the rejection of a paper by an ed board
of the RRPE, right? It really doesn't speak well of the state of the US
left that something like this had ended in the legal instances, but this is
another matter.

But more generally, as far as I understand, in this list there is no
censorship. So any subscriber can discuss whatever issue she or he wants,
no matter if it is "a legal conflict", the situation in Argentina, the
methods for solving differential equations, the status of Marx's "law of
value", or the weather in Belize City.

Patrick's post, supported by Mongiovi, can be effectively read as proposing
a kind of censorship here, something, I'm sure, it won't happen. The
circulation of information cannot harm anyone.
