Yet again, the dreaded "no story to tell yet" byline has reared it's
ugly head. The general opinion of many people here seems to be that
this is due to hardware shortages, software failure and general ineptitude.
The average 'surfer is not in a position to question any of this. One
might wonder, though, about the editorial bias of the censorship hating, freedom of the press loving PDX Indymedia Staff. Hardware is pretty cheap these days. Dumpster cheap. And Linux ALWAYS runs faster on a server...I know about THAT. And the right wing sites I also like to throw dissenting opinions into respond, invariably, in tiny fractions of the time it takes for the gears of PDX Indymedia to turn. Why is this ? Hello staff ? Are you spending so much time sifting through all of the masses' opinions, deciding what is politically viable to let through, that you have somehow managed to become stuck in 1997 technology ? No, I don't buy it.
To every other individuality oriented dissenter out there...what is going on here at PDX Indy ? Perhaps they might explain why controversial opinions seem to run into software and hardware problems all the time, and extremely lengthy data transmissions of photograph after high-res photograph of Communist rallies
just slide right on in, problem free ?
