Indymedia (IMC) says: Indymedia says: Your speech has the same fate as the polar bears! (ha ha).

Indybay.org says: this news blog is automatically censored! We don't even have to work for our money!

Cleveland.Indymedia.org says: You must write "liberty" to post! We're having so much fun forcing you to obey!

Portland.Indymedia.org says: 911 Hoax used to try to post here, but we stopped him. We now screen every post. Every post.
