Melbourne Indymedia calls for Sydney Seppuku
As part of the discussion of abortion, someone echoed my call for Indymedia Seppuku suggesting:
Sydney imc should be abortedThere is some support for the idea:
All I know is this anti-Semitic filth has been on the newswire for a week and it's safe to assume nobody from SIMC has a problem with that.Sydney says No Way! and has responded with a typical cry of how great Indymedia is because of "Free Speech". I (and several of the respondents apparently) still don't the value.
If such matters are not taken seriously, the site certainly is a joke. Can anyone point to Sydney IMC's genuine contribution to society besides usual IMC motherhood crap about "giving activists a voice" and a "progressive alternative to the mainstream media"? As far as I can see, it's a pile of shite and there are far more useful activist/progressive websites whose moderators take their jobs a bit more seriously.
Bring on the abortion I say!
There is plenty of support for 'my idea' - namely the voluntary closure of Indymedia if it cannot clean up its act. It's called acting with honour, rather than engaging in self-delusion. More formally, there have been several examples in the past where others have reached similar conclusions. I am not alone!
Thanks for visiting.
