With it's rise in popularity, Indymedia has increasingly been the victum of disinformation and attacks. During the A22 Bush protest pornography, spam, and other tactics were used against the site, presumbaly to crush the real information coming through. Now ZMAG has issued a warning as well. Independent Media, growing with the resistance to the neoliberal order, is becoming a target once again.
Reposted from ZMAG:
Urgent: We are the target of a concerted large-scale and aggressive disinformation campaign. As yet, we do not know the perpetrators. EMail is being sent, written by others but with our return address, with the intent of misleading people as to our views and provoking massive angry mailings back at us. Please ignore all such mailings. Please advise others to do so as well. And please pay attention to mailings that are literally from us -- you should be able to tell the difference. Moreover, these folks are likely to do this with other returns addresses as well, personal and institutional.
