This Indymedia site looks like talk show trash (english)

Modified: 17 Mar 2003
What's going on at this site? I come here for information on actions, not this childish spite.
Where is all the news? I only see lunatic ravings from right- (and left-) wing lunatics.
Posters: please keep your (rabid, vitriolic) comments off the newswire!!

the news and the lunacy (english)
15 Mar 2003
I'm a volunteer with the Boston IMC collective. The news is highlighted in the center column--that's its purpose, to filter the news out from everything else that gets posted to the newswire. We're discussing among ourselves what to do about the amount of garbage that gets posted to the newswire, as it does drown out announcements of up-coming events, photos, etc. We want to balance keeping it as an open forum with a place that is a useful tool to progressives. Any consstructive suggestions would be appreciated.

Making a request for news over rants is not censorship .... I noly wanted to ASK that people keep the rants to a minimum, and make postings that are informnative and not distracting. People are welcome to ignore it, which they have.
