My two cents on an already 11 comment thread (13621) about censoring on indymedia: Now, think, what could be simpler than adding a category like: 'frequent contributors' or something; it would obviate the ansy frequency of repeat posters who hope to catch new bee's as soon as they surf ace. Once you make it into the top 100, have a catchy name and a set of interesting titles it should be smooth sailing all the way to happy interaction with likeminded idiotelects without the desire for visibility driven repeats. The desire to tighten yet broaden your argument (dis)serves repetition purpose well enough by itself alone, quite adequate, thank you; either way though it is likely to become boring soon enough already. (Emoto-)Pyromaniacs are too busy to embellish vocabularies; the only tongues they are likely to like-lick are the poor man's and male version of primitive wealth: fat, the barbarian's power trick: fiery fire-flick (Gosh we see no more sun in Northern Europe in this sort of season; don't really wonder why though what with all fires raging round this hell of a hole sale silliness). :: :: :: :: :: :: :: 22nd comment: equitable judgment meridians :: :: If chuckO is for property destruction and a pro-semite, does that make me who is an outspoken ownership transfiner and deferer anti-semitic??? :: :: :: :: There is a place for linearectality in adjustments or rather a very specific unmistakable orientation of/for it: vertical and hop green I go; leaving nasty monitors that don't even monitor much of any import for unbias business. :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: 13727 the right to criticize israel (6th comment): tangential perspectives: I agree with the two previous posters (and so, with Majdur as well). For a fresh look at the problems around anti- and semi-semitisms I should like to invite you to my page peppered with deepdelving probes into the history of them. Allow me to cryptically recount the case of Silvio Gesell here for instance, who pioneered (or revived if you will) community currency ideas and practice. He considered 'eternal life' of money (as long as you bet on a horse that stays in the race), hoarding and interest as the major obstacles to an equitable economy. He tried to 'clock-work-life-spanner' it. He tried to even eleminate small amounts of interest, those far from the overcompensation of risk known as usury. In fact, he went as far as arguing for a negative interestrate: pay a fine for the keeping money out of circulating and parking it; have it go on strike to raise the ante a bit (similar to capital destruction in war which hinders workers paying off loans). :: :: His mistake of course was not unlike those many made in those days when the total amount of (gold) backing was fairly rigid and fixed with slow incrementation. The 'clearing' :: or 'compensation' thought <<verrechnung>> (available from the oldtime USA anarclassico WBGreene for one) has as yet never had the attention and extent it deserves and must urgently be given asap. :: :: :: BEHOLD THE CRUX OF ALL CRAZINESS :: Easy enough to switch a flip in the realms of hotting air no?????? :: :: :: :: :: Damn stubborn 'em stumblestoney calloused hearts though; just takes the best of squeases afore 'ey fealleaved.

What the voting and polling rackets are displacing and preempting is (and this is the subject of many of my recent efforts here and elswhere) the harmonization of politics with nothing less than the entire gamut of economies (from gift through black market and monopolized ones), no less than an anchoring to and true reflection of peoples evolving states of personabilities and commitments reflected in the popularity (here simply meaning the literal extent, the geographic spread and range of acceptance --not neccesarily contiguous of course--) of their particular monies (specific about and invariable returning to them to be redeemed by them). :: Fluctiations on stock markets are a reflection of the delusory, inflationary and what have you sort of rifts caused by to violently pendel-potion-motion-moodswinging; the emotions of expectations wether fear- or hopeful tend to veer away from reality by shear charm of evolutionarily speaking unbeatable fireside fabulation (now displaced by carefully dosed and minutely choreographed mixture of chaos and kaleidoscopy on the tempting tubes wether or not manipulable). :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: The value of Schumpeterian enthusiasm is unhinged from the moorings it needs to constitute a co-opetition of truthfulnesses :: (creative destruction lost its commitments to cleanliness and compost heaps; unfortunately industriousness evokes and is associated with adverbs such as 'cottage' as much as if not more easily than 'creepily poisonous' and that is where unrealism and the eternal scourge erosion rears it's ever more potent invincibility). :: :: :: The socalled 'value of voting' :: conveyed by yet more copy and counter copy (to cater to the concept of charisma and piety with a pretense of solid accuracy though a mere cardhouse and weatherlike one is all they should allow hope for) is instead covering over and for this reality: people's disempowerment for the 'sake' of decisiveness resting with one person who has to demonstrate a measure of impulsiveness, arrogance and haughtiness to qualify convincingly for a position of leadership and then the word is: people 'trust' ....(?) such and such such as in this case. :: This atavism harks back to battle orders long past.

Obviously unskilled with inner mirrors that dangerous man.
Unfortunately deadly confrontations with the law: Just yesterday Holland enjoyed the almost verbatim enactment of a recent book about Byzantian times(with their horse races and political intrigue resembling today's sporting events) which is written by Guy Gavriel Kay who has legal as well as 'Tolkienesque' training (making for a couple of breathtaking trilogies so far). :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: A supporter of a local sports club caused a call for cops upon himself by disturbing the neighbourhood peace; in the chaos ensuing a second round he was mortally wounded by a threatened and panicking copper (unrealistic reputes may have played a role here too). Hereupon the mayor forbids that night's game. . . and .. .all hell breaks loose led by hooliganic vandals and the oppportunistic reactionary or two; public buildings, brandnew schools and a couple of cars at hand gutted and torched; 200 riot police and firedepts. are doing overtime. At night around 9 the mayor is on TV and :: recounts the sordid events, after rambling for a few minutes he says: "...terrible cause the supporters didn't understand this had nothing to do with the game". ?!?!?!?!!?? In other words he (conveniently forgets and denies his own decisive involvements in actions of just hours ago (cause if he stood for and by them then though not anymore now he might instead admit his mistake and resign, but no), schizophrenia oozing into the camera he blames the supporters for what he himself is first and foremost guilty of. . . Classic proof of the widespread disease. . . What I don't get is the fact that the whole police corps could have foreseen this as easily as I can understand the unfolding of events even though it is mere hindsight. I am supposing one of the following reasons may have played a part: :: :: :: :: 1) :: To them it apparently didn't make any difference wether they were going to fight around the stadium or in the part of town where the trouble initially started nor that many more supporters than strictly necessary would have plenty of energy left to show some frust. :: :: :: :: 2) Perhaps they liked a change of scenery for the usual supporter wrangles. :: :: But away from the game it seems to have attracted all Dutch arabs waiting for a chance to play Palestinian martyr without the risks bycause the turn of events has upended the for Dutch conditions normal course of events. :: :: :: :: :: :: :: 3) Maybe they had a clue but also knew it was hopeless to budge the authority vested in people like mayors and presidents, :: mere puppets and decoys of covertly geno- and ecocidal policies yet placed above small fry shepherds, the monopoly of violence maintainers in democratic countries (again, this case turns things on their heads though). :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: A few days later polling is once more a 5 comment post and I :: (repiet) :: :: repost the above (pea tree peat) meanwhile slightly amended and smoothed version of what I tacked on as last addition there (as it probably will be here at this also 5 comment one): :: :: :: PS: that riot turned into a 3 day one so far and the burial of the killed supporter (2 chest shots; sort of a dumb place to aim if you ask me) isn't even till friday.

Youth here is spoilt rotten and police are (apart from this sad case) like nannies compared to those in the states but if they keep this up that 'll all soon change for the worse too, like so many aspects of life. :: :: I then added the latter part of this story to a (little later) post about police brutality during an anti police brutality ralley in Cincinatti (14917); 'sports related riots continue' :: :: :: starting thus: Freak occurence (I mean in these parts of the GreatWideWorld a truly exceptional incident) of excess police brutality which paradoxically sparks an orgy of riots since the police became quite passive and restrained, not to say bashful (give or take a few teargas charges) as a reaction to this disastrous course of events, one which we usually characterize as :: 'american circumstances'. :: :: :: :: :: :: :: The latest has it the man shot through a door so that throws a worse light on his action than even a bad (as in mortal) could. i'm trying to get a discussion going in several fora. :: :: :: :: :: :: :: I just went through a pile of newspapers from the past days and it seems that the copper did aim low but the victim fell after the first or second and therefore caught a third (??? neigbour across the street heard 3) in the chest; unless it turns out he was a convicted murderer and though I now tend to attribute the riots more to police passivity on the one and frustration with them on the other hand than to the match cancellation (with a recent announcement of an imminent whole neigbourhood teardown and rebuilding perhaps playing a role too) the coppers will have a lot of explaining to do.

I have no illusion about dissuading hottotrot macho's from brash 'actions' but why can't it be someplace cheap, inspicuous with a chance to have it become continuous?
