Sydney IMC bows to threat of lawsuit.
So they did.
Of course that didn't stop a cunning reply-posting pasting the whole controversial article in full. No doubt if the management of the site do find themselves in court they will employ what I call the Standard Indymedia Defence - "It's an unmoderated medium, we can't be held responsible for its content". In rather the same way they would expect you not to be held responsible for someone getting shot with your firearm if you failed to take any responsibility for properly securing it after multiple warnings to that effect.
It seems others on Sydney Indymedia share my thoughts (top of the Blog page) about the failure of the Indy Media experiment. I wonder if they are Neoconists?
