You did read "Replicating Marx: A Reply to Mohun" by guess who (_Capital &
Class_, 2006), didn't you? (it's available online: search under the title)

He wrote:

"Mohun's is the first critique of the TSSI to address the interpretive
controversy in a serious, methodical way".

I guess that means that your critique from his perspective isn't even
worth chopped liver. Talk about dismissive!

It means literally that -- according to Kliman -- your critique either was
not serious and/or not methodical, and/or not concerned with the
interpretive controversy.  This same comment was directed at every other
author (other than Simon) who wrote a critique of the TSSI!

In solidarity, Jerry
