Why would you name something after a Gulag? I mean, that;s really disturbing.

Disturbing for some, delightful for others. The administrators have named the forum. If you would like to have it changed, you are free to make a suggestion in the appropriate board in the forum, possibly with a criticism attached.

Why even promote your form of Leninist-Stalinism on a site clearly hostile to those vciews?

Our forum does not have any official line such as the ones you mention. This site might be hostile to Leninism or Stalinism as you claim, but that forum is not hostile to any leftist, and already has some of every broad category despite being quite small.

unless you declare an editorial line opposed to the left of capital, the amateurish machiavellian methods and smalltime bureaucrats that accompany it, i believe you'll find zero sympathy for your forum here.

Thank you for that piece of information. But we still believe that this place does have politically sound individuals who would actually join the forum and debate for their political line rather than throw buzzwords and make silly demands. We know very well that those who do not even dare to debate or discuss until they have the whole forum administration conform to their own tendency, are obviously not knowledgeable enough about their own political lines, and hence not good for any meaningful political discussions.

No one is forcing you to do anything. Your actions will prove how confident you are of your political knowledge.

Nah, a lot of people here used to post on RevLeft at some time or another, so they've done that. They just stopped because it was shit.

I bet you'd say the same about far-right boards using "concentration camps" subsections, eh!

OK, so what is the joke about using the term "gulag"....where's the humor? Maybe I'm just of an age where gulag, stalag,concentration camp have pretty heay meanings.

C'mon, syndicalist it's essentially the same thing as the old "salt mines" joke in libcommunity. Indeed, libcommunity should be re-named "the salt mines".

I must be aging myself. A DP Camp, for my generation, is where survivors of the nazi holocaust went after they existed the concentration camps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Displaced_persons_camp

I guess I just found the term gulag to be in the same league. But we covered this already.
So....

Our forum is not related to any other forum. So it is not correct to draw decisions about it by experiencing other forums.
