Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
17 Apr 2006
Modified: 10:26:13 AM
Thanks to all readers for your patience as we've been bombarded lately with posts from right-wing trolls.
In order to help us keep the site clean, please help us by mainly *not responding* to the racist, sexist, homophobic, or simply insulting comments made by the following names:

- feller
- FLIPSIDE
- comrade pu

We strongly believe these might be one person trying to disrupt the site. The less our readers respond to their comments (which hopefully, we'll delete promptly), the less likely these trolls will feel incited to disrupt the site.

Also, we are aware that the same trolls are trying to co-opt the names of some our readers, such as:

- @
- amatul
- noah

Fortunately, we know who our readership is and most names are clearly distinguishable from right-wing trolls. These attempts for co-opting names will also be eventually deleted.

If you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to contact us at:
imc-boston-office (at) indymedia.org

And again, our apologies. If it is at all a consolation, the good work of everyone reflects on the desperation of a few trolls to disrupt communication.

In solidarity,
BIMC Editors

word. i appreciate it.
Yeah, thanks.

This IndyMedia is much better than it was a year ago. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the unrewarding task of moderating the site. Sorry to take bait from trolls and contribute to the back-and-forths, but when it is personal attacks it is hard not to respond to slander and bullshit... especially when you know that there aren't many editors, and it is likely that it will stay up for awhile.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

Good call BIMC! I appreciate all your good work!
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

Let's keep the tone stable. But let's not let deviation from any one orthodoxy on the Left prevent the presentation of valid criticisms from any philosophical perspective.

The "Flipside" business is obviously a joke. But it is unclear if the other posters you mention have crossed any lines that a sophisticated audience can't discern for itself.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

It is good to know our enemies.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

This is pretty damn humerous. You keep inflamatory "articles" posted with titles like "Pervert Rumsfeld" because these aree with you extreme left leaning ideology cloaked in the nebulous term "Anarchy" but you censor anything that satirizes your point of view. That's responsible journalism? But then again, I guess no harm comes of it because this site merely preaches to your own choir. The bottom line with you people is if it is anti American, you approve of it and you love it. If it is pro-American, you hate it and censor it. But then again you always let your bias get in the way of consistency. For example let's take the issue of illegal aliens. You are all for illegal immigration when it is Mexicans who are illegally entering the country but if the illegal aliens were from Israel, you would be opposed to them. Why? Because you have this historically incorrect view that a the militarily stronger United States stole the American southwest from the militarily weaker Mexican nation. You ignore the fact that at the outset of the Mexican War, the Mexican Army was three times larger than the American Army, was better trained and better armed. The vast majority of American Forces were untrained militia using outdated arms. The fact that you are unaware of that or just simply choose to ignore it is evidence of your bias.
Thanks for your effort.
17 Apr 2006
I just want to thank the BIMC editors for doing their best to handle the troll problem. My personal belief is that there are two persons trolling. One is FLIPSIDE and the other is feller/veteran.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
17 Apr 2006
I'm just glad you wiped out yesterdays shitstorm. It was giving me a headache.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
17 Apr 2006
Nice idea but I think that the only way to disrupt the site is to respond to those postings.

It's not the so called trolls who make the BIMC look like a forum for fool, but rather it's the fools who respond to the trolls.

The great thing about the BMIC is that you can read or listen to a great story and ignore the stupid crap which get posted by conservatives, crazy commies, whatever. At the same time you have the choice to read what I consider crap because you think it's not crap. You see how it works?

Heck, I really don't see the trouble with people going back and forth below the story. They can't edit the story afterall, so the news is safe. I think it is kinda fun sometimes to browse through those spats and see what nut is getting people to waste their time by responding.

It's definitely a good thing to strike out racist, anti-GLBT, and sexist TERMS, but there are lines to be drawn and that's an editor's job. I wouldn't go so far as to kick out run of the mill insults however...how else can I call GWB a fucking asshole who eats shit for breakfast?

Censorship never works-as much as it pains me to say so. Unless it's an extreme circumstance, I say leave it up. Comments do not = news.

Rock on BMIC

Well, the "Ori" posting above isn't me (the person who's been using that name), so...
Re: CLEAN RIGHT WINGERS OUT!
18 Apr 2006
Hunter S. Thompson wrote about reporting in the US ‘mainstream media’: “Objective, means that you write the same thing as everybody else on the ‘press’ bus.” Strange country that the US is the only debating points allowed to journalist/commentators is what in most other countries would be considered ‘moderate right winger’ to ‘hard right winger.’ Populism is allowed as long as it is mock populism that is really Extreme Right Wing views dressed up in ‘average Joe’ clothing. Indy Media web sites like Boston Independent Media Center were set up to offer people a chance to post news and ideas that are not in the Capitalist controlled “Mainstream Media/Press”

With those thoughts in mind it is not necessary for the BIMC to allow a handful of Right Wing provocateurs free access to the site. I have heard people at demonstrations arguing for the ‘rights’ of Fascist/Nazis to stand in the middle of left wing demonstrations intimidating left activists. They say leftists shouldn’t violate the “First Amendment Rights to Free Speech” of the Fascists. The ‘1st Amendment’ is about the GOVERNMENT not having the power to regulate speech. It is not about the population having to listen to or read what they don’t want to listen to or read.

The International Socialist Organization’s “Socialist Worker” newspaper or web site does not have to balance their views by letting Nazis write articles. The Spartacists don’t have to have an op-ed columnist from the ‘Wall Street Journal’ in “Workers Vanguard.” The “Militant” doesn’t have to open it’s pages to the Bosses to get their side of a strike. These newspapers are set up to advocate and organize they don’t claim to be impartial and they don’t have to be.

I have posted some strong criticism on BIMC. I posted many criticisms of Chomsky, I posted many observations about ANSWER/ Workers World Party, and I also wrote quit a bit against the ideas and practices of the International Socialist Organization. These criticisms drew many outraged counter posts. Again and again I was called a Police Agent, a COINTELPRO practitioner. Some people do not like criticism, some of these groups are not used to being criticized and only know how to fling the word “Cop,” around. But notice that in the long strings of comments of post and counter posts were I have made substantial criticism of left groups the Right Wing disruptors have nothing to say. They don’t understand the arguments, they don’t understand the players. More real left wing debate will push them to the margin were their pabulum is ignored.

Before the development of interactive internet sites there were few places a leftist could discuss left wing news. The mainstream media/press pays little attention to groups like WWP, or the ISO - when they do it is usually right wing slander. Plenty of people on the left criticize other groups on the left, at last we have a place were it can be done publicly and the group being criticized can answer.

The crybaby Right Wingers think they are discriminated if they don’t dominate every source of information they can see. They do not want the existence of different ways of looking at the world to reach a wide audience. One college professor wrote that in a class of 15 students, with one Right Winger, the Right Winger said he was discriminated against unless he had unlimited right to respond to any remark made by the other 14 students. He felt he represented the “Real World” or something, so he had more rights than anyone with a “leftist” sounding world view.

While our "free but responsible" media/press will burry you with factoids and celebrity sin, it is hard to see the state we are in.

Capitalism produces a few winners, who work very little, and a lot of losers who work hard all their lives Under Capitalism 3% of the US population owns 80% of the wealth. While they have the window dressing of a "democracy" the 3% who own the US decide among themselves what will happen. They have two large pro-Capitalist parties that rotate in and out of "power." The Capitalist support both and control both. The formal democracy is an illusion. We live in a Capitalists Dictatorship.

The Right Wing posters on BIMC have access to a vast array of places they can spout their PRO-BOSS drivel. They come to Indy Media because they want to disrupt a leftist dialogue. Don’t let them. Delete them.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

The trolls are disruptive, sure. However this policy seems a little off target. It's not that I have a problem with regulation, every community has the right to dictate the terms of its own membership. The obvious problem here is where do you draw the line? Reactionary trolls are distracting sure, but are they really a threat? Does this policy extend to Nazis? Zionists? Hostile Trotskyites who pull fire alarms to shut down democratic assemblies? See the problem here? The only solution as I see is what Tony has already stated. Trust the empowerment of the individual to decide wheather to read the postings or scroll past them.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
I'm sure this has been gone over but is there any way to do a registration / password system for posting without logging IPs or handing out cookies?

I'd love to just be able to "turn off" all unregistered trolls from my view, or block specific users who are clearly here to disrupt. There are too many of them for a vote-up/down system to work, but users had the power to work out their own system of blocks, administrators would have to spend much less time peeling comments off and dropping them in the Hidden pile.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
Keep up the good work just don't get overzealous to a point that amounts to censorship.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
Greatly appreciate everyone's comments. Mike, indeed this policy is not meant whatsoever to censure ideologies. It's specifically designed to off-set those trolls that are here merely to disrupt the site and easy flow of coments. I think that our post "right-wing trolls" is a bit misleading. It should really say "disruptive trolls"...

And yes, we are currently reviewing a registration system that would hopefully solve this issue. More on that later...
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
Michael Patrick....you refer to an anti-trotskyist "urban legend" that people have pulled fire alarms to stop democrats from speaking...what is your source? Where did this happen? I think this is just another attempt to protect pro-democratic party groups from being criticized.

This "fire alarm pulling" never happened. Just as when I criticize the WWP they say I am a Cop. They can't just say I am wrong, they have to make up a reason to not listen to the criticism because it hits too close to the truth.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
mike didn't mean democrats, he meant democratic assemblies. AKA assemblies that are democratic. smaht!

You're not my "comrade."

You can smell what you like, but as usual you have no words of argument, is poletics just name calling and slander for you? Wasn't it the ideas that attracted you....at first anyway? What are your criticisms of what I have written?
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
18 Apr 2006
Greatly appreciate the openness of this article. The trolls are a minor problem and sometimes help to show the ridiculousness the rightwings. This site should allow all who follow the posted rules to post. It should in no way censor this site, which is different than other sites that are not news sites but individual org. sites. Indy media is a citizen media site, not an anarchist, communist or anyother ist site. IT IS FOR ALL. To censor would be to ideologically isolate into an oppressive device of control. Welcome the trolls and try to not get drawn into their distractive debates (as I admit I sometimes do, sorry). Thanks folks, keep up the good work.

ugh. a lot of us were there, it was in boston. sparts insisting on having their say at an anarchist meeting, and not leaving when asked.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
19 Apr 2006
The Trotskyite crazies from the Sparts pulled the fire alarm during a large meeting of the anti-DNC organizing group, the Black Tea Society. You're claiming that they didn't do it, when there were literally hundreds of people there who know for a fact from their own presence that they did, simply makes it obvious that you are a a liar and a troll.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
19 Apr 2006
What was the date when the "trotskyites" pulled the fire alarm. Who saw them do it? What happened when the Firefighters came. Was anyone arrested? What happened in court? Or don't "Urban Legends" need proof. Is fiction more fun than fact. This sounds like unsubstatiated SLANDER...since it's written it is LIBEL. Offer some proof....time, date, what happened....or stop spreading COINTELPRO (cop) style rumors.

Is it that BIMC is going to particiapte in censorship when that is what they complain most about? Is it that the truth may be getting out there and you cannot handle the truth?
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
19 Apr 2006
The Sparts pulled the fire alarm during the BTS Consulta two years ago at the Community Church. The Fire Department showed us which alarm had been pulled after the Sparts had already left. The only reason why they were not beat down that day is because the folks from FNB were convinced that they set off the alarms upstairs while they were cooking. This was proven false by a look at the fire alarm control panel and a conversation with the Fire Department. Many of us were there. It was not an "urban legend".
Re: Kelp BIMC Keep our Kite Klean

WARNING: It has come to the attention of your comrades here that someone other than us has the ability to censor posts such as this one and to block writers access to editing their posts.

ALSO: If anyone has any other sugesstions we will be going back thru the entire server and deleting anything that our friends here in the inner circle of back slappers found above find less than enjoyable. We believe that expressing ideas that upset or offend our high bread primarly jewish pressure groups gives people the idea that anyone can publish such nonsense and sets a bad example.

The recent wave of anti zionist thought has deeply troubled our ownership so we feel compeled to warn you if you dont cut it out we will shut all the fun down.

thank you so much and keep up only the mediorce work and remember that by a unanimiously consenced apon agenda we have decide to change the BIMC core principles to include the following, "There will be no satire, sarcasim or ridicule allowed. we know who our readership is and they cant handle it."
What I take issue with.
19 Apr 2006
I take issue with someone using the "@" symbol in order to discredit anarchists and/or anarchism. I suggest that capitalists who like posting as "@" switch to "$". At least that would be honest.

Re: Help BIMC

Freedom to criticize and pulling fire alarms….

I see the Spartacists a most demonstrations, I see what literature they have and talk to them about world events. They are well spoken, well read, sober and serious. They usually take a hard left, classically Marxist position on any question. They seem to plan what they do carefully, and usually answer their critics in writing. Can you provide links to what they had to say about this charge?

So what did they say after you told them that you thought they had set off a “false alarm” of a fire? I think the fine for setting off a false fire alarm is about $200. Did you turn them over to the Firefighters? Or didn’t you have any evidence. Just blame the communists, they are unpopular, so they make a convenient scapegoat

Who saw someone from the Spartacists pull the alarm? Hundreds of people know they are guilty, but nobody saw them do it? Or is it just a guess?

The truth is - YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR MARXIST/COMMUNIST POLETICS - so you slander them with something that has nothing to do with politics.

Why are you picking on me? What the hell did I do?Just because I love Israel and don't like illegal immigrants you want to censor me? Why can't the left take criticism?Most of you are anti-semitic Islamo fascists.I'll just change my name.You haven't heard the last of me and my troll friends!

iron council is a communist "strongly influenced" by Marx? Well, there is a first. A communist influenced by Marx. How boring.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
I'm completely at a loss as to why my comment was censored.

1) I am an anarchist communist. Pointing out that "I am a communist and strongly influenced by Marx" was in response to Liam's accusation that anyone pointing out that the Spartacists pulled a fire alarm at that consulta "[doesn't] LIKE THEIR MARXIST/COMMUNIST POLETICS - so [we] slander them with something that has nothing to do with politics. "

2) I hate the Sparts while I admire their militancy.

Here's my response to Liam's comment, reposted.

(And may I have some sort of explanation as to why it was removed in the first place? "Other" doesn't cut it with me, as an anarchist who has been using IMCs since the day the first indymedia site went up.)

by iron council
(No verified email address) 19 Apr 2006

I am a communist and strongly influenced by Marx. The Sparts pulled that alarm. I admire their militancy. They're "sober" and pretty hardline, and also more sectarian than any other Left alignment I've come across in the US... in NYC they still initiate brawls with other leftist groups. That's the truth too, not an "urban legend."

It's pretty silly to cite the fact that anarchists chose not to try to involve the state--which was pulling all kinds of its own dirty tricks against the Black Tea Society at the time--in some kind of retaliation against the Sparts as some kind of evidence against them pulling the alarm.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

We're anarchists. We don't rat people out to the authorities. Even enemies. We deal with them our own way.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
"your own way" must mean crying in your hands on Mt Auburn St. because nothing was ever done to the Sparts.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
I suppose we could've just beat the shit out of them, but that would only add to their cultist martyr complex. We just eject them from any anarchist events now. They wore out their welcome.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
So you guys do have rules after all. You collectively make a rule that Sparts cannot come to open and free events. Doesnt that make you guys a dictatorship of the demos?
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
If I understand this correctly, this means the anarchist solution to Sparts is to tattle to the campus rent-a-cops when people show up to the bookfair? So that's what will happen Saturday? Massart rent-a-cops will be throwing me out of the bookfair?
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
"Doesnt that make you guys a dictatorship of the demos? "

Only if we were somehow monopolizing resources. Otherwise it's just plain free association.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
Apparently not. Apparently you are pretending to have unanimous consent to throw people out of the Pozen Center (a limited space), at an event which is publicly advertised to be free and open. So it's not freedom of association, it's freedom to cherry pick who can and can't go. It's exclusivity and cliquishness.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
if not all communists are marxists, then it gets really boring trying to sort one from the other. i got bored trying to figure out why there were hundreds of trotskyist groups, then stalinist groups, then anarchist and black nationalists of different hues. I would care if numbers of members increased in proportion to number of groups. but it is an inverse relationship. hardly seems worth the effort. oh god, i am tired.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
um-

So you're saying the Sparts are going to just *happen* to need to use the Pozen Center at the same time?

"OMG you people don't passively allow others to disrupt your plans which means you are authoritarians which means you are hypocrites!" Grow up.
Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
Here's a thought, why don't you just organize a Trotskyist bookfair... oh wait, you never actually organize anything yourselves. You just disrupt other people's events.

If you come to the anarchist bookfair and are able to behave yourselves and not disrupt workshops, and not dominate Q&A's by regurgitating your tired platforms, and not stuff copies of the 'Workers Vampire' in peoples faces, and basically not make completely obnoxious asses out of yourselves, then I would guess you would be welcome to attend. If you act like you usually do I am sure organizers will not hesitate to ask you to leave.

Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean

Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
20 Apr 2006
maintaing the infa structure is different from owning it and its content and direction. I think the original post is a personal political reaction of people who have gained power and privilege from marinating the "system" and realize that its getting out of their control ie people are using it to exercise criticism that goes beyond the bounds of the inner circles comfort level. Plus we like to be silly and have fun which doesn’t seem to be allowed here and if you cant troll and be hyper critical its not my kind of revolution.

What FLIPSIDE is.
22 Apr 2006
Here's a quote from the stalker's mouth:
"By being an asshole you must mean making anarchists feel bad and challenging their beliefs."

Of all the people on the planet, why does FLIPSIDE choose to harass anarchists? He didn't do this before 911, did he?

I believe that if this were Germany, 1936, FLIPSIDE would be taunting Jews and passing out lists of their names and addresses.

He's sick.

Re: Help BIMC Keep Our Site Clean
23 Apr 2006
This post was originally meant as a self-congratulatory exercise to demonstrate the political correctness of the site. Instead of controlling the flow, the administrators have lost control. Not to right wing "trolls", but to left wing crazies!

Congratulations!
