Hi Jurriaan:

He can play "the antichrist" (and/or "v = 0") if he wants to, but people
should be informed that is his new persona.  As for whether I should
continue to "bother with this", I have often asked myself the same
question!  I *want* to ignore him but then he does something that just
can't be ignored.

Do you know this reviewer?

The excerpt you reproduced was good, but his claims about what Kliman
"denmonstrates irrefutably" and  that "the TSSI interpretation (sic) is
most certainly correct" are hogwash and uncritical hyperbole,
imo. I think Fred has demonstrated irrefutably that the Kliman-McGlone
perspective on the transformation is *in reality* an attempted
*correction* of Marx.  Corrections are OK, of course, when they are
needed.  But, let's call a horse a horse and a correction a correction.

Yes, that was *very* bad! Kliman should have apologized for that, but
that's not his modus opperandi.

In solidarity, Jerry
