Hi Tony et al,
Hidden, But would 326562 not come in under issues or analysis? Or at
least be ticked only for topic 'indymedia'. I went and looked at this
hide and found a comment referring to the Editorial guidelines at the
top of the page. This is what I found there:
> IMC UK Editorial Guidelines
> The Independent Media Centre (IMC/Indymedia) UK is an open-publishing
> platform for news, issues, actions and analysis reporting on
> grassroots, non-corporate, non-commercial social justice,
> environmental and political issues. IMC UK is maintained by a network
> of media activists and groups. IMC stands for Independent media
> center, UK stands for United Kollektives.
Which does not look good for the blanketing Non-Newsers. Also, that
guideline as it is could be interpreted to prevent writing about
corporations or commercial social justice matters. I am sure that is
I am of the opinion that it is not enough to hide copyright corporate
reposts. Has proper legal advice been taken on this? Should they be
deleted? Or at least put in an inaccessible archive.
I would suggest that Editors be very lenient where people have used
their own name, especially where there is an email address. (Advise
diguising the @).
