I think most of this hiding posts crap originates in the idea of preserving the illusion of Indymedia as a serious entity in confronting social injustice.

While people at LPC plan to throw their red paint on Italian consolates or have progressive barbecues in western massachusetts, some of us who actually live here (and are not moonlighting as revolutionaries while we get our TA jobs at the Catholic School) are actually making fun of the crooked LOCAL politicians and hasbaras.

The fact that real people exist in Boston who are willing to spend money blowing our steam and won't let the indignant little microtitans who grow on the bricks of Berklee's ass end squash our fun -- seems to be a major thorn in the side of Boston's lesser progressives.
