My imput on this discussion: ( a little long)
>(correct me if i'm wrong) Elle also supports hiding
actually I was in correspondence with Norm via email
This is reply to a few messages you have sent along.
I personnaly do not support Kerry or Bush.....however
I do support

Are you familiar on how to use the "open Publishing"
on the IMC site? This information can be posted on the newswire, an
administrator will move it to the local section, let me know, i'll post it
if you have difficulties doing so. Click the "PUBLISH" link on
the left side - and fill in the blanks...
I was glad to see Norm wanting to participate that I
had set aside the content of the post.
Reality - as far as I know no one in Cleveland area
Indymedia support the democrats or republicans.
I feel if 3 collective members want it hidden as I recall that is
the number needed in process to hide an article - as you recall I was
pushing for all pro politician shit to be hidden...remember kucinich. So
yes I would hide all Pro Kerry posts too. Again I must state I was
excited Norm (the author of the post) was getting involved and empowered
to use open publishing.
I HAVE TO SAY THAT the hiding and unhiding is
inappropriate behavior for this collective. I agree
that someone has been abusing their privilege as
the collective member who continues to unhide without any post to the list
discussion is not acting in the spirit of indymedia collective.
I feel this should be added to next meetings agenda as
discussion on how to handle collective members actions such as this.
I would think the administrator who is responsible for hiding it would
state reasons why.
Please do not let this discourage you from further
You worked the open publishing perfectly!

I was so glad to see your participation in the discussion, keep up the
communication, as Chrystine stated at least 3 meetings must be attended
in order to participate in process....
(elle asks with a smile...)
So I'll see you'll at the next meeting ? :)
So in closing Elle, A, And Jesse have, as abled collective members, state
for the upcoming election Pro Kerry/Bush posts would be hidden.
Several list members also put in words of agreement/support for the above
can we come to a conclusion?
I then suggest this conflict of administrator privilege abuse should be
then moved offlist and onto agenda for our general meeting.
"I advocate revolutionary changes... an end to capitalist exploitation,
the abolition of racist policies, the eradication of sexism and the
elimination of political repression. If that is a crime, then I am totally
