New image procedure is death of @news?

So from this comment (http://anarchistnews.org/comment/211853#comment-211853), I decided to start a topic.

Lots of people keep on commenting on the image procedure (which I say instead of "policy" because I hate the word "policy"). Most of the comments are negative. I, myself, preferred worker's approach to thecollective's, so count me as negative too.

Why does this matter to people so much, tho? Like, seriously, as much as the images were funny, and value-added for the site, I never came here for them.

continued from the believer-logger

there's more to it than technology

its possible to find a fit for all kinds of different theories in the data simply by way of 'correlations'; i.e. rising technology, rising hollowness in civilized life, rising CO2 concentrations, rising temperatures, and of course, this can provide impetus for backing out of the alleged 'causal agencies', ... reduce the invasiveness of technology in society that is allegedly causing the hollowness, reduce the CO2 omissions that are allegedly causing the rising temperatures.

this is very simplistic reasoning.

continuing conversation from why it's right to resist

yes to wher you are coming from but my interpretation may differ

as wittgenstein and whorf and others have observed, philosophy [trying to understand in discursive terms what is going on] is a battle against the bewitchment of our minds by the limitations of our noun-and-verb language-and-grammar.

continuing conversation from for the world to live

an open letter to François Hollande

YOUR amazing stupidity will have its impact on my children too. did i vote for you? no, i don't have a vote in your country. does that stop you from fucking up the world that i live in? no, not at all, you superior egotist asshole, you are the 'beneficiary' of some idiotic process that has given you control of a powerful military, .. you have under your instruction, robotic-psychopathic forces to stir the world and thus to stir what unfolds for me and mine.

continuing conversation from polyamory

polyamory is not a feather in anarchism's cap

if you remove authority and its imposing of laws and principles and operate on a ‘relations are all there is’ basis where the ethos is 'cultivating, restoring and sustaining balance and harmony', then a long list of banned practices dissolve into the ambient background activity. in Singapore, chewing gum is a prohibited practice. would it make sense, in an anarchist Singapore, to say;

Kristallnacht and modern fascism

Considering politicians make commemoration of victims of fascism while they make fascist policy against immigrants, it is necessary to distance and make own comments. It is important to compare Nazi politics in Germany before and after Kristallnacht with modern, present situation for immigrants in Denmark and other countries. Mentioning my case is not complaining than I like to speak from personal experience instead to make blabla revolutionary theory, people are egocentric and they fight on the basis of personal problems with the government, not only on the basis of theory.
