Number 4 is silly. Someone submits a statement to a public archive which
in the estimation of the respondent should be challenged in front of
others who do read the archive. If the original poster thinks that
everyone who reads the archive will dismiss his respondent as he already
has, there is absolutely no reason for him to worry about it.

I again did not start the flames. Ajit started the flames against Paolo
and Alan Freeman. He also said that I do not know much of anything.

I find Freeman (and Giusanni) persuasive on a lot of issues as do many
Marxists. So I shall voice my agreement with him if Ajit or anyone else
decides to flame him on this list.

Ajit is not obliged to respond but he is not going to get a free pass
flaming other Marxists.

I again did not start the flame wars.
