Say You Want A Revolution! East Side, West Side: Logic on Why One Should Vote

I asked my ridiculously well informed friend to write this article for me according to this prompt:

"David, no one gives a fuck about voting. So what the hell do you tell someone? I know I could rave on about women's rights/human rights and issues pertaining to that, but what the hell do you tell some overprivileged, unaware, probably half-drunk probably white probably male college kid who has probably never had to work or earn his way... how do you stoke something in that person, to vote?"

This is what he so eloquently replied with: Read the full reply...

LOCAL Commentary :: Alternative Media

Exhibitionism, Trolls and Indy Media

There is a serious problem with Independent Media Centers (IMCs) in the open comment areas. IMCs end up publishing as much content *against* freedom, racism, sexism, classism, etc., as they do *for* those things via the open comment areas. “Trolls,? or people who stalk indy media sources and writers, work hard at publishing as much hate mail in comment areas on IMCs as the individual IMC editorial groups will allow or overlook.

Solutions: Reining In Trolls On IMCs

I would like to request that IMCs talk about this option:

What if we set it up so the author of the article could *choose* to have an OPEN OR CLOSED comment area. The *author's choice*, not the IMC editorial's choice. Authors would have to decide open or closed BEFORE comments happened. One shot deal. But if you choose CLOSED comments, all comments will simply be blocked from that article from day one, and permanently the comments will just not happen.
