Looking at the second page of the book, I learn that OPE-L is denounced too:

    "A perfect example of a modern-day storehouse publication is
    OPE-L, a Marxist email list whose members are shielded against
    public censure. As the editors of OPE-L proudly announced: We
    decided ... to make our archives available to the public subject to
    the following condition: you may not indicate the authors of any
    posts that you cite. Thanks to this protective policy, OPE-L can
    let people see what is being said, while at the same time ensuring
    that no member of the list has to defend every word that he or she

I never realized OPE-L was an official publication! This indicates a
mindset harking back to the days of mass parties, world wars and
Comintern, when discussions in print were in official party organs and
it was important to assert the 'correct line'.
