Article Below Called "Islam Not Peace-Loving" Pulled, Censored By IndyMedia !!!!

It stills masquerades like there is a link for a story, but the Masters of the Server have decided they don't think people should see that!
Apparently they are worried that IMC'ers can't handle thinking objectively all by themselves!

If you don't believe me, try that old link about ten story links down from this one! Censorship? Just tell me why. Why did we bother proclaiming a mission for a free and open news forum? This is a very sad day.

Sometimes computer glitches happen. When this occurs, the intelligent thing to do would be to send a note to someone in the IMC editorial group and let them know about it. This same thing has happened before with articles that I've written - once they're made aware of the problem, then they fix it right away. If they _were_ trying to censor the story, do you honestly think that they would have just left the link up there? Fucking moron. Stop making ridiculous, whiny, counter-productive accusations, and do someting pro-active instead.

Don't think it was censorship. I have had several things I posted jump off the pages...talked to PDX Imc about it and they said the website is getting hit by hundreds of posts a day and the server sometime slows down and sometimes moves faster. When that happens the site starts to malfunction. The server went down in DC during last weekends actions because of technical difficulties...

PDX IMC is not the devil. Appreciate what ya got before laying blame. It's technology ya know! Things happen

Guys, obviously this person made a mistake and jumped to conclusions, which doesn't make them an idiot, no matter what their article happens to say . . . we all learn step by step - no one is born with indymedia already hardwired into their brain.

I heard the major server problems today had to do with IDIOT Worldcom.

Blatant Censorship... 03.Oct.2002 22:02

Of course this site is being censored by the liberal commies that run it. I noticed that quite a few stories from a right-wing perspective that are posted here don't stick around very long. Of course socialists have a long history of censoring ideas that go against their point of view so it doesn't come as a surprise.

This site claims that anyone can post a story and that you shouldn't hate the media, you should become the media but of course only if you want to promote dumbass bike rides, dumpster diving for zippers or any number of other stories related to protesting as a career choice.

Trilox - put down the crack pipe and pull your head out of your ass. Indymedia gives everyone the equal opportunity to express their views, that's fine if you think Critical Mass is just a dumb bike ride - personally I've never participated in it myself so if you haven't either perhaps you shouldn't blatantly label it as dumb. Obviously most of the folks who post articles here have a strong commitment to the community regardless of personal agendas, in this day and age splitting hairs and furthering disenfranchisement among one another is counterproductive. If you want to see censorship watch the fucking evening news, give us a break and remember we're all only human and bound to make mistakes. We need another conspiracy theorist like we need another corporate puppet in our congress/white house. Stop bitching and remember it's better to shut your mouth and say nothing and have people think you're a moron than opening it without thinking and proving them right.

sincerely,

"Indymedia gives everyone the equal opportunity to express their views"

Yeah, and then they delete anything that isn't PC...

BULLSHIT 04.Oct.2002 16:25

Trilox, that is bullshit. Indymedia does NOT censor "anything that is not PC". Lamet Vali (under all his/her pseudonyms) has I believe 2-3 articles on the newswire as we speak. I don't know why I bother responding to you at all, since you don't really want to argue with people, you just want to provoke a reaction. Why don't you post an article yourself and see what happens?
