IMC Trolls Posting Bogus Pharmaceutical Ads Again (tags)
It appears that IMC trolls or outside observers are attempting to clog the website again with useless advertisements for British pharmaceutical products.

Editorial Policy: The Open Publishing Newswire is an essential part of the Indymedia project. It is a globally accessible space for anyone to quickly self-publish breaking news, articles, commentary, digital photos, and audio. Los Angeles Indymedia volunteers moderate the newswire. In the last year and a half, the Los Angeles IMC Open Publishing Newswire has been besieged with detractive postings, other items, and commentary that are far away from what the Newswire is meant to be: a vital source of progressive and radical breaking news, commentary, articles, and announcements. There are no easy or perfect solutions to moderating an Open Publishing Newswire, rich with a healthy democracy of views. We have agreed by consensus on the following guidelines to help us decide what postings are appropriate and what are not. We believe that these guidelines will help to make the moderating process clearer for IMC volunteers and anyone who self-publishes; we hope to create an unencumbered, useful and Open Publishing Newswire for readers worldwide. We strongly recommend that you read our editorial policy
