Portland Indymedia Moderates comments articles the owner doesn't like

by WAIYI Monday, Jun. 03, 2019 at 10:02 PM

the guy who runs this site trolls commenters who don't buy into the paranoid world view he pushes where nothing matters and you should stop using tech. When you point out what a tool he is, he freezes comments. But its' cool they've all been saved ....

Lately, Portland Indy media is little more than an outpost for conspiracy theories and Russia apologia. And whatever, but we didn't think they'd go so far as to actually freeze, delete, moderate comments just because of disagreement.

The evidence:



Missing comment from this article posted by an obvious racist :

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437534.shtml

It is clear from the timing of comments and posting style the owner of PIMC is the one who published it and defends it with demented non logic through the thread. Finally, after trolling his own website, he says something really dumb, is mocked for it and locks comments. This is the unpublished comment:

.................

@_

I see....

"What do they pay you cubicle laptop dudes, anyway? (whether by-the-hour or per-post) Not enough evidently. "

So you don't want readers to believe in the widely reported and well documented Russian interference and espionage into the USA's political affairs,

but YOU DO want them to believe anyone online who disagrees with you or mocks your tinfoil ridden comments is, what? An agent of the US government sent to troll Portland indymedia?

?????

Psst...it's okay, we both know you don't really believe in cubicle shills trolling Indymedia. Meaning it's quite likely you know very well Putin DID influence the American election and Trump is a foreign asset. Like so many so called "alternative" outlets/personalities--Glen Greenwald, Assange, Paul Joseph Watson--- have become....

.................



At this point he has all but confirmed himself to be the owner. But it needed to be tested to be certain. So going to this thread:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/05/437516.shtml

..where he had a meltdown after trying to convince readers there was NO COLLUSION, this comment was submitted and remains unpublished:

.................

Wondered how long before comments would get moderated...

lol2u2

Comments have been going up instantly. Now they stopped, at least in this thread:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437534.shtml

Let's see if it'll go up here...IOW, is the site modded? Or just that thread?

And thanks for confirming "_"/lol"/YOU are in fact the loon who runs this site. And yes, you totally melted down, lol forever.



..................



So.....the owner of PIMC has betrayed all the founding principles of the people who fought for Indymedia as he coopts this platform to spew right wing narratives defending Trump and Putin propaganda. He probably is also logging ISPs...in complete violation of Indymedia principles...and...what the hell, anyone who is paying attention already knows who this creep is:



https://twitter.com/iamjoeanybody



He has an interesting assertion on his website:

www.joeanybody.com/id9.html

Mar 14, 2019 - http://portland.indymedia.org/. 1. Cyber-autonomy: A Tactical Approach to Media PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY = Indymedia.

But privacy for who? Certainly not all the activists he and his friends harassed or outed on the Internets over the years.

IMMA thinking it privacy to hide himself, and his creepy friends and the fact Indymedia is nothing more than an empty shell.....

https://www.wweek.com/portland/article-1969-corporate-media-is-the-disease.html

There's lots of good stuff, but this is relevant to the latest comment freezings:

"Although there has always been censorship of messages posted by cops and right-wingers, dubbed "trolls," some current and former Indymedia activists say the Portland IMC is increasingly censoring progressives who are considered too moderate."

"Removing posts for no good reason is a "total abuse" of the system, says Herndon, who was surprised to hear they left the threats in place. "What's unfortunate is that the Portland IMC is backing the position in this case that violence is appropriate.""



Oh, what a tangled web....

And this is hilarious:



"Local freelance reporter and KBOO radio-show host Lisa Loving doesn't consider the site a viable news source. "I almost never go there," she says. "



Didn't the KBOO clowns use Indy as a platform to harass their station manager out of a job a several years ago? But creepyness apparently was always part of PIMC culture:

"Portland Tribune reporter Jim Redden, who founded the now-defunct alternative newspaper PDXS, is one of the few mainstream reporters in Portland respected by spArk. But Redden, a former WW reporter, is bothered by the anonymous posts. He recounts a bafflingly libelous attack on him that appeared on Indymedia last year, one that left him without recourse, since he could not locate the site's anonymous operators."

Got a feeling someone is going to pass a tip along to Mr. Redden... Not that he's a saint or anything. But fair is fair.

Oh, and expect the wire to experience more "technical difficulties" soon.

IP banning now?

by questions Tuesday, Jun. 04, 2019 at 2:47 AM

This is another comment that couldn't be posted because it went to an error tittle page. The thread is:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437534.shtml

The question now is exactly how much does the website owner want to show his hand....

Two comments already never published, and now "blues" has posted, proving there was no "technical delay.



For more, read here:

http://la.indymedia.org/news/2019/06/298043.php



The other question is how exactly can the owner pay for a website no one cares about? LA IMC has it's issues. but at least serves the immigrant community.

Hey, Blues, how's Beruit IMC doing?

The Portland wire has had all sorts of technical problems for several years.

I guess so they wouldn't look like the censoring assholes they are.

But not all. DA is probably IP banned, but the owner using a sock is mocking him for "running away".

Joe Anybody has pulled this shit before. Got a friend who started saving all deleted threads, unposted comments and was going to start a blog, but never got around to it.

Maybe I'll rattle his cage.

If you try to comment or publish.

For those who don't know -- HTTP Status 500 - is a SERVER ERROR.

It is entirely server sider, not your computer, not your browser, not a result of IP banning.

Imma guessing the nasty fucker unplugged something so no comments or content is possible.

Edward Snowden: Live from Moscow, Russia, June 2, 2019, 2 hrs

by Conference on Mass Surveillance Wednesday, Jun. 12, 2019 at 2:07 PM

Hear Edward Snowden for 30 minutes from a Conference on Mass Surveillance in Toronto.



When will war criminals be punished and truth-tellers be protected? Snowden is shamelessly slandered as a "Russian agent" after exposing lawless US government attacks on freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Only one US politician voted against the Patriot Act because of the fear of being seen as soft on terrorism.

Theresa Mitchell returns to bury what's left of KBOO/Portland Indymedia reputation

by here we go! Saturday, Jun. 29, 2019 at 6:30 AM

Re: this new thread by a friend of the PIMC wire:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437585.shtml

" rogue managers hire corporate HR"

Readers should just Google Lynn Fitch, the last "rogue" manager Theresa and Ani Haines drove out of a job after targeted cyber harassment. For the record KBOO, being a NON PROFIT CORPORATION

is OF COURSE going to have CORPORATE lawyers.

Mitchel has always been an idiotic loon. Let's go back in time to when KBOO saved Portland from a "dirty bomb" by working with anti gubmint Jew hating loon Captain May.

https://ca.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ghosttroop/conversations/messages/46341

"Postscript: March 30, 2012: This article was originally published as Thwarting Nuclear Terror in Texas in The Lone Star Iconoclast on October 8, 2007. Ten days later May issued a national red alert, warning of a false flag petrochemical event in the Houston area; four hours afterward, Dow Chemical, in nearby Port Arthur, exploded. Pacifica journalist Theresa Mitchell broadcast the story in her Presswatch program as It pays to monitor terror exercises. Based on this and many other correct Ghost Troop alerts, The Iconoclast would later publish Time To Investigate Houston Is Now and Captain Eric H. May Deserves Medal of Honor."



Yeah, they're real heroes. Especially when they used that very list for cyberharrasment and Mitchel the so called journalist(lol) didn't even bat an eye. Because as long as your RWNJ "radical" friends are funding your private radio club who cares if they're stalking people sucked into the fake activist scene?



You know, like the Antifa targeted after Kevin Barrett, long time buddy of Mitchel's fellow tinfoil loons, had his interview cancelled?

https://twitter.com/RoseCityAntifa/status/971798443948568577

"On Friday, noted anti-Semite Kevin Barrett is set to appear on KBOO show Progressive Spirit at 9am. Please contact KBOO at 503-231-8032 or program@kboo.org to try to prevent this divisive figure from trying to spread his message of hate on the air."



Look at KBOO's reply: "

KBOO Community Radio

‏ @KBOO

8 Mar 2018

Replying to @RoseCityAntifa

What are basing these claims on? Could you send on some evidence backing it up, and we'll look it over."





Who ever this person is, they are a friend of Mitchell and Haines, and are LYING. And playing dumb. A google search of Kevin Barrett has results going back to 2007:

https://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/moonbattery-acid-9-11-denier-kevin-barrett-the-chandler-conference-and-the-holocaust-6499847

Losing that interview hurt so much Barrett started stalking a member of Antifa.. with information that was leaked to him by Theresa's friends.



Does Mitchell understand how discovery works? What exactly will be found on Ani and Theresa's computers and in the cloud when the digging starts in earnest? This shit show will make the Fitch Witchhunt look like a cakewalk....

title: Fetzer = Holocaust denier conspiracy loon sued by Sandy Hook survivors

"Also visit James' website, which features writers from the Autochthonous Left, and the Right, and many other things as well, at:

https://jamesfetzer.org/2019/06/mike-palecek-we-seek-the-truth/"



This is the same Fetzer that's affiliated with the local tinfoil truther alliance creeps. He's being sued by Sandy Hook survivor families for inciting Internet mobs against survivors a la the same cyber stalking activities he was involved with in the "twoofer" movement.

Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theorist Loses to Father of 6-Year-Old Victim Over Hoax

"A Dane County judge on Monday found that a longtime conspiracy theorist living in the village of Oregon, along with his co-defendant, defamed the father of a victim of the Sandy Hook massacre and allowed a trial for damages against the men to move ahead."



"Zimmerman said a trial to award his client damages is to be set for October. Pozner is asking for million."

It's not been a good year for the Foil Hat crowd. Another local twoofer was humiliated in the press late last year:

Its part of the many reasons DHS is getting sued. Conspiracy cyber harassment is becoming an expensive hobby....
