    Apologies moderators. I'm banning myself from this forum before I get the obvious ban. And, Gnome, you're still a snide cunt.

    Not sure I deserved that outburst; it was a general observation and not directed at anyone in particular.  But if the cap fits…

    Printed,  or in digital format,  it is 300 times better than all the books written by the left,  including the History of The  Russian revolution written by Trotsky. This is a compilation of articles written by the SPGB,  and they are all available on the website.I have the index of the socialist standard,  and I have read all of them and despite that, I already ordered one copy for my personal library., all those articles helped me to understand and clarify in my mind the real events that took place  in Russia.   There are a lot of distortions out there regarding this coup wrongly called a revolution, and every year they repeat the same errors. I have always said that the WSM/SPGB is the best university on Socialism. It is the best source of information for the world working class. It is one of the reasons why I believe that the SPGB should expand its frontiers to all the countries around the world

    Many thanks, ALB, for your info.  I think my questioner may well have been concerned about paying out hard cash for stuff he has already read or could access on our website.Perhaps, the Introduction could be posted online as a taster and a helpful link to publicise the book. Is that too much to ask for by someone else who has also been crticised for making suggestions from afar?

    Nothing wrong with coming up with suggestions. The more the merrier.

    Of course it hasn't been done; it's just another suggestion for someone else to act upon.  If you, Vin, or someone else is able and prepared to do it I'll raise it with the EC on Saturday.  PM me the details.

    Just because Impossibilist has unsubbed himself, is no reason why we can not continue to access his good work of compiling excellent posts, from older Standards. He puts these up on his Socialist Standard Past and Present  Blog which I am transcribing from those for our archives. You can also set up a feed directly into your own mail box with this link. http://socialiststandardmyspace.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/defaultI am currently working on the 1947 folder with some excitement as it has, an article by Paul Lafargue in April of that year on Socialism and Nationalisation, but no mention of me being born in a castle on Easter Monday. Damn.

    Seeing that this particular post is attracting several posters to use the report function I can assure you I got the message loud and clear.
