stop the iraq war.org?

new web project
I just registered the domain name, "stoptheiraqwar.org" in hopes to start a new website project aimed at providing updated and accurate news about the war in iraq and all the possible ways to stop this war that is now starting.

My ideas so far are as follow: (forgive me if this is too much of a rant for you.)

Site features:
allow visitors to add news and stories/links to the site easily
keep an updated "death toll" with corresponding media reports to check for discrepancies in various media reports and keep everyone informed on just how many casualties this war is causing. icon_sad.gif

An interctive forum (perhaps just use this same forum)

free email account ( yourname@stoptheiraqwar.org)

guestbook

calendar of events

online petitions to stop this war

etc..etc.

This war is wrong..and we must find more ways to get our message out!

please email me if you are interested in helping me promote/develop and advocate this cause...

You just wasted you money on that website! 20.Mar.2003 12:14

Matchboy,

This is going to be over before you can figure out HTML. The more time you spend on planning this web site, the more it obsolete is becomes. Your time would be better spent by harassing business owners, public officials and blocking traffic in your streets, seriously.

Also you may want to spell check you messages before you post them, first impression is important, isn't it?

Matchboy,

You just wasted your money on the domain name, this is going to be over by the time you figure out the home page format. The more time you spend on planning, the more obsolete your web page becomes. Your time would be better spent by making signs, harassing business owners, public officials and blocking traffic in your city, seriously.
The bottom line is to get as much visibility as possible, right? So get the media out by waiving you signs, screaming and lay down in front of rush hour traffic. Also, you may want to proof you comments next time, you know first impressions are very important, right?
