I also agree 100% with this. This sort of re-posts piss me off big time
too. In my book they're, at best, expressions of lazyness.
They not only meake a mockery of the sapirit of copyleft indy-uk seems to
adhere, but they also stand as an opposition to that "Bypass the
Corporate Media" claim.
I therefore completelly support Chris's proposal of:

Thus i propose to give it to the end of this week to decide on this, and
hopefully change it by Saturday.
