Name change & an update regarding moderation – June 2010

As of this month we are changing the name of the Anarchist News newsletter (formerly known as ATubes) to the Anarchist News Digest (AND). While we thought referencing the Internet as a series of tubes was cute, perhaps it wasn’t cute enough for the newsletter. Download the newest issue, print it out and share it […]

Privacy settings & changes in services

This week the issue of moderation became a hot topic again.

On Moderation – part 3 of an endless series

Attentive viewers will have noticed that I have started light moderation. This means ‘unpublishing’ comments at this point and I’d like to share the mechanism by which I will moderate a comment. 1) It is entirely hostile to the anarchist project 2) It is offensive to my not-so-delicate sensibilities (most permutations of the N word, […]

It seems like the ethical thing to do is to use the service myself. This will be a place where I discuss things that I am enjoying about the projects around Anarchy Planet. I will also announce new things about the Planet, @news, and assorted sites. I will keep it to the point and avoid […]

Update on the Greeks and the amazing generosity of North American Anarchists

It is really easy to be hard on ourselves. We aren’t exactly in a time of libertarian social change and at best we have minor victories, over a window or maybe some Maoists, nothing serious. Nothing to get all gloat-y about. And we don’t. Mostly we beat each other up on the Internet, take ourselves […]
