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? :-)
