If neo-nazism becomes a problem within the oekonux lists then we will

problem. The important thing is what we do, not the label.

That might be true. But according to Stefan Merten's original mail there
wouldn't have been a problem, as *all* positions are welcome: "leftists
are welcome as anybody else". My main point was that this cannot and must
not be wholly true. There must be at least a consensus not to allow any
kind of sexism, rassism and anti-Semitism.

[Das mag stimmen. Nur in Stefan Mertens ursprünglicher Mail klang es so,
als ob es da gar kein Problem geben könnte, weil *alle* Positionen
willkommen sind: "sind Linke ebenso willkommen wie alle anderen". Wichtig
ist mir vor allem, dass das eben nicht so ganz stimmen kann und darf. Es
muss zumindest einen Minimalkonsens geben, dass Sexismus, Rassismus und
Antisemitismus in jeglicher Form inakzeptabel sind.]
