Louis: Godena, you are incorrigible. I have tried to conduct a dialog 
with you in the past, no matter how repugnant I find your Stalin worship. 
But your refusal to disavow yourself from the baseless charges you 
have made against Carlos forces me to put you into a permanent kill file. 
I suggest other comrades consider doing the same. We simply 
don't need reckless accusations being flung about like this. I saw this 
sort of thing destroy the American left in the 1960s and 70s, especially 
the militant black wing. 

Even though we only exist in cyberspace, there is always the possibility 
that down the road we may have real ties in a common organization. We don't 
need to poison the well we all drink from.

I can easily see myself fighting side by side with the CPUSA against the 
class enemy, especially when there are exemplary comrades like Scott 
Marshall to be found. But Godena, who is so ready to put a snitch jacket 
on another socialist, is not somebody I want to have anything to do with.
