Re: Let's Start a New KC Indymedia Site

i found yet another online definition of censorship for you. this one mentions censorship by religious groups and corporations, two of the examples i also gave. as for an editor censoring a journalist, maybe we are envisioning different scenarios. A situation where the journalist invites revisions and works with the editor to improve her/his story would not be censorship. however, in many cases the story is submitted for publication and when the writer sees it later in print, the most controversial or challenging parts of the article have been deleted, without the writer's consent or knowledge.

why can't a small independent website practice censorship? because it can't, according to your definition? if so, your definition seems rather circular and self-serving to me. there are strong personalities, ideological factions and power politics in many groups, even an online news forum like this one. i do not see why censorship within such a group could not occur.

questions like whether your censorship conformed to the guidelines, or whether indymedia ought to be moderated like Infoshop News (with only certain politics allowed throgh), are better addressed in meetings because i am only one person giving my opinion.
