Apparently, someone has already posted the 'off tha pigs' comment in its
entirety at least three times in the comment section of the newswire,
completely undermining the consensus process that we're working to build.
The comments were posted early Saturday morning between 12:36 a.m. and
12:40 a.m., a little less than 11 hours prior to the editorial collective
meeting scheduled for 11:00 a.m. later in the day. This is a sorry moment
for the LVIMC, sorry indeed. I wish the editorial collective luck in this
debate. Be strong against your bully.
What this person just did has the potential to shut down the LVIMC. I'm
not talking about legally, rather, undermining consensus in this manner
renders decision-making within LVIMC almost impossible.
It has to be someone on the editorial collective e-mail list because the
editorial collective e-mail list is the ONLY place the 'off tha pigs'
comment was posted in its entirety. This means that someone from the
editorial collective e-mail list decided that the consensus process was
This action is different than actions to delete comments and/or hide
comments. Actions that edit the site are well-documented and connected to
known individuals working with LVIMC. For instance, Jeffrey deleted a
sentence and Genelle deleted the comment. Both are members of the
editorial collective. When I blocked an IP address, I posted a note to
the list. This person essentially made an editorial decision amidst this
very important editorial debate without owning up to this action. It's
dispicable, underhanded, mean, untrustworthy, and dangerous. The evidence
points strongly to someone on the editorial collective e-mail list.
Again, this is the sort of behavior that rips groups apart at the seams.
I encourage everyone to think hard on this one and make the decision
that's best for the group.
We do have the ability to determine who posted these comments. Since
these re-posts specifically undermined the consensus process, a delicate
process that we're working hard to keep together, and apparently are from
someone on the editorial collective e-mail list, I make the following
Empower the editorial collective to hide the four comments because they
are spam. Empower the Tech Collective to determine the identity of the
'off tha pigs' re-poster so that we know who undermined the consensus
process and determine what action(s) need(s) to be taken. If there are no
objections to this decision by Tuesday at 9:00 a.m., the proposal will be
