Recently the Portland statement on the SF conflict got posted to the DC newswire. I looked around, and apparently it got posted to several other newswires as well.
You know, usually this kind of posting pattern is called spamming, and it's frustrating and disheartening to see come from another collective. For whatever it's worth, I happen to agree with the bulk of Portland's views on the SF conflict, but that's what listservs like imc-us-process are for.
Please don't spam sister collective's newswires with discussion that belongs in the indymedia lists. It's destructive and not appreciated. Two wrong's don't make a right, so I'm sorry that I've repeated the pattern here to make the point, but I hope this can end.
