The Pitiable State of LA-IMC

by Google Wednesday, Jul. 16, 2003 at 9:58 AM

Pathetic, really.

Hello all,

I'm writing from LA IMC. We had a meeting today (it was my first, actually)

and were discussing the disrupting activities of a person who calls

him/herself 'Bush Admirer'. We came to the consensus that he is in

violation of #6 and #10 of the Principles of Unity and we will further block

him from posting on la-imc's site.

One of the members in our collective said that both of you had already dealt

with him in some form or another. We were wondering how?

What we have decided to do is publicly announce that we are no longer

letting him post because he is in violation of those two principles and is

purposefully trying to divert attention away and disrupt the activities and

postings of people on the la-imc site. In our announcement we plan to show

evidence (i.e. some of his postings) and clearly explain why we have chosen

to take such an action.

The deeper issue that came up in our discussion, however, was that what we

really need to do (maybe on a national/international basis) is to come up

with a policy about posting, as we are sure that disruptors (FBI, right-wing

organizations, etc.) will keep on using the site to further THEIR causes and

weaken ours. We fully realize there are issues of freedom of speech

involved, but one of our members likened our problem to National forests.

We have set aside a space that can be collectively used, but if we don't at

least have some ground rules on how it can be used a huge corporation could

come in and start logging the area. Does this make any sense to you guys?

We would love your feedback/input on this issue and would really like to

collaborate on making a policy on posting so that there are clearer ways to

deal with these issues in the future, as we know they will only get worse.

Thanks so much!

Heidi
