There are still a few subscribers to this list, and given Carrol Cox’s importance to it (he made 11,541 posts!) it seems only right he be memorialized here. I posted this to Facebook a little while ago:

"I learned this morning that Carrol Cox <https://www.facebook.com/carrol.cox?fref=mentions> died. We fought a lot over the years—he could be a cantankerous SOB—but I always liked the guy. Smart and principled and unrelenting. One of the stars of my old listserv, lbo-talk. It was always a treat when he'd depart from denouncing others' deviationism for a reading of Milton or Pound. We met a few times in person and it was my first and still most extreme example of how a real-life personality can differ from online: he was always friendly, gracious, even giggly in real life. Anyway, RIP, Carrol. I'll miss you."
