hi www-features,

I'm passing this email along. It is a response to an email sent on  
the imc-news (at) lists.indymedia.org list.


As far as I know, there is not a functional contact address for  
general feedback to indymedia.org and/or the indymedia network. I  
think indymedia should invite and value feedback from people.

What can we do? :-)
