I agree that referring to OPE-L as "Levy's Defamation Den" and "OPE-HELL"
is not funny or the action of a person deserving to be taken seriously.

Please recall that that it was Andrew Kliman, not myself, who made those

[In any event, how can you take the work of a Marxist who referred to
himself as "The Antichrist" seriously?]

No, from what I've read, it's not a serious, scientific work.  It's a
piece of propaganda (which in my opinion wouldn't have been published
unless it was part of the Raya Dunayevskaya book series). But, that's
my opinion which you are free to agree or disagree with.

Now that you know it was Andrew Kliman who referred to OPE-L as
"Levy's Defamation Den" I believe you owe me an apology.  (Of course,
Kliman owes me many apologies but I'm not holding my breath.) If you
think that OPE-L is and should be a serious forum then your quarrel is
with Kliman, not myself.

In solidarity, Jerry
