i agree with mp it is hard for us to not look unwelcoming discussing
something like this, from my part i apoligize for it.
it is just that global lists are normally heavy with hard discussions
and so on that sometimes something that should be ok ended up passing
throught a discussion that from our past in these lists has a bagage of
diferent situations...we are a easy target for beeing an open group
(even if it doesnt seems to be that open sometimes) and for that we
we got used to put up our barries before anything .. i can totally see
how that can offende someone, specially if you are not even in the list
where the subject is beeing discussed.
i dont know what to say..for some of us to bring such subject to the
list before taking any action so it can be discussed but all (not
judged) it is something normal..
maybe our dinamic isnt something you are familiar with and it might look
a bit strange..which is totally understanble..i guess i would feel the
same if i wasnt used to the way are normaly done on indymedia..
anw..sorry for anything..and please feel welcome to join the list..
dont see this as a unwelcome thing ;) but as a missunderstanding i
thats it i guess
