I request that you remove some material posted by someone that is
malicious and serves no real editorial purpose.
Your editorial policy states:
"Posts requiring discussion:
* Some posts are brought to the editorial collective and are dealt
with on a case by case basis. Articles flagged for discussion
require the consensus of four editors to be hidden. If consensus
is not achieved within the editorial collective to hide the post,
then the post remains unhidden."
In addition, your policy states:
"It is the responsibility of the editorial collective (whose membership
is open to the public) to oversee the newswire with a careful eye to
balancing the open publishing philosophy with a desire to maintain the
"newsworthy" quality of the site. To this end, we employ two methods:
first, the editors will remove articles in direct violation of our (very
liberal) editorial policy. This includes advertising, duplicate posts,
and pieces which fail to even resemble news or commentary."
With this in mind, this page:
... shows a picture of me taken without my permission, and posted
without my permission. That in itself is, I suppose, part of a free
press. But the comments, and the picture itself, is:
- Not newsworthy -- it has no editorial content
- Not timely -- the picture was taken in 2005 yet was posted apparently
in April 2007
- Malicious -- smarmy and nasty come to mind, but that is of course my
opinion. Is Indymedia's purpose to mimic trash journalism?
- Inaccurate -- I am no longer associated with the Free State Project
and I do not produce an excess of methane :-) :-) Never have, actually.
- Not related to New Hampshire -- because I am not associated with the
Free State Project, it is not relevent to New Hampshire.
- Not funny -- gee, it isn't even even good satire.
- Incorrect -- I no longer look like this
I ask for an Editorial Review and removal, or placement Elsewhere. I
ask that the picture be removed entirely. Why I am the target of this
particular bit of nastiness for no apparent reason I do not know. I
haven't had anything to do with the FSP for well over a year and haven't
been to New Hampshire in 2 years.
