Independant? I think not....
Subject : Now, let us analyse this post from an INDEPENDANT MEDIA COLLECTIVE MODERATOR.
Posted : 2003-08-20 11:50 PM
Post #1757 - In reply to #1756
The LA IMC has met together and confered with other imc's about the attacks from hostile(read :- postings that do not agree with the IMC Collective opinion) postings. The IMC network places great value on freedom of expression. It's one of the hallmarks of the indymedia network. Some of us(read:- some, not a majority, and no reference to names or numbers) have come the the conclusion that these attacks are orchestrated deliberately from individuals, agencies, or institutions to specifically degrade the newswire to lessen its impact and effectiveness.
It has been decided by consensus that these attacks are degrading the newswire by deliberate hostility that is a turn off to most readers as well as an intentional dumbing down of the messages brought to the newswire that are not seen in any mainstream venue. (read:- some IMC moderators don't like anything that is posted that goes against their ideology)
But what is wrong with just posting an image of a steak, you may ask? The posting of a steak is meant to taunt the hunger strikers (No it is the equivalent of posting a "cartoon" the picture of a steak says much more about the posters opinion of this "hunger stike than a thousand words could) that are moved by our (now we are getting to the meat of the issue... OUR EFFORTS??? an Independant Media Collective is activly promoting causes it believes in?.. No you should not be biased at all...) efforts to bring attention to their plight. The editorial collective has been identifying those efforts that are specifically aimed at degrading the newswire content and removing their 'contributions'. (read:- Anything against the efforts of the "collective" will be removed)
We have collectively decided that this newswire is an uncommon commons where people should feel both welcome to contribute their ideas and not be unduely subject to degrading taunts when they do so. (you must have missed the nigger references on LA IMC....) For example, the person who posted the steak is free to post the image in another newswire article and to speak his mind about the removal at this posting. We do not remove conservative or Republican politics or any sarcasm out of hand. If it doesnt violate editorial policy with pornography, harrassing threats, or slander, it will not be removed. The brave hunger strikers, however will be allowed to draw inspiration from our efforts on this post (Finally!!!! the INDEPENDANT media center of LA admits it is not really independant, the moderators are supporting a cause...)without being taunted in their weakended condition or having the importance of their message dumbed down by a comment that is aimed deliberately at degrading their message or their struggle.
