Exhibitionism, Trolls and Indy Media
28 Oct 2004
There is a serious problem with Independent Media Centers (IMCs) in the open comment areas. IMCs end up publishing as much content *against* freedom, racism, sexism, classism, etc., as they do *for* those things via the open comment areas. “Trolls,” or people who stalk indy media sources and writers, work hard at publishing as much hate mail in comment areas on IMCs as the individual IMC editorial groups will allow or overlook. They do not deserve to be published, plain and simple. It is time the plug was pulled on the trolls.

Free Speech Radio's Uncritical Alliance with Indian Country Today (newspaper)?
27 Oct 2004
Modified: 10:43:24 PM
In today's broadcast of "Free Speech Radio" (on KBOO), I heard commentary quoting the newspaper "Indian Country Today" in a way that appeared to make it sound as if this assimilationist newspaper is an authoritative, unbiased source in Indian country. Critical thinkers would do well to investigate the actual truth that this newspaper, led by editor Tim Giago, may as well have an open alliance with federal mandates to manipulate, suppress, quell and silence traditional voices and values. Autonomous (non-ideological) Natives/Indians expose the games of assimilationist-seeking "Indian Country Today" (note: Leftism is assimilationist when you want liberation from an entire value system!)

Solutions: Reining In Trolls on IMCs
27 Oct 2004
I would like to request that IMCs talk about this option: What if we set it up so the author of the article could *choose* to have an OPEN OR CLOSED comment area. The *author's choice*, not the IMC editorial's choice. Authors would have to decide open or closed BEFORE comments happened. One shot deal. But if you choose CLOSED comments, all comments will simply be blocked from that article from day one, and permanently the comments will just not happen.
