the Great Experiment is about to begin

Long touting it's self the cure to the Ills of society SFIMC
has gone it's own way, often with the IMC Collective.
we find SFIMC once again stirring the political pot.
the SF based news group has fallen on hard times.
donations are at an all time low.
the solution a novel one for Indy Media, next month SF will start charging its members who access the site.
(Matt one of the editors) We will require all members to
open a pay pal account and set up a monthly billing schedule to get access to SFIMC. It will be a modest charge of $20.00 a month. And for those who want to post articles and announcements there will be a $5.00 posting fee for each item.
talking with Nessie the self proclaimed founder of the IMC Collective. When asked about the poor and their access to news Nessie replied; they can go read it on a friends computer. We feel we do them far too much good for them to cry about a small access fee. this new service is scheduled to start next month.
