Something's Going On Regarding New England IMCs.
22 Nov 2004
Many IMCs are experiencing downage, even those on different servers.
New Hampshire, Maine and Western Mass. IndyMedia's have been down most of the last 24 hours, though they came up occasionally. This is not due to targeted interference against specific readers as I can confirm no access from multiple (including foreign) access points.

Vermont has been in a state of catatonia for about a month now.

This leaves Boston and Worcester. No one reads Worcester, it seems.

Boston seems to be someone's IMC of choice. That someone ain't on our side.

Vermont's IMC has been derelict for a long time, because of a lack of volunteers. New Hampsire we are in contact with, they have a very small collective. Maine and Western Mass are also very small. Worcester seems to be a strong group. Boston is blessed with a good tech team. That is the extent of the conspiracy.

Western mass and NH are up right now anyway.

I want to know, by "our side" what exactly do you mean? Are you against independent media? Against open collectives? Against activism?

Are you the "termite in the foundation" of independent media?

When Boston's IMC deletes or hides every comment that is not appropriate to their liking? What do you expect?
As far as the other IMC's? Who knows? Could be the government? During the RNC? I had a hard time getting into NYC IMC and Democracy Now! After RNC? No problem. Kinda strange...isn't it?
Could be traffic, hackers or government. I'd bet the latter.
