Re: <nettime> What has copyright to do with democracy?

Hey Miles and Heiko,

I wouldn't worry that people are getting quotes out of context.  It's  
an ancient complaint, and reasonable, but those who follow list  
discussions learn that clip-quotes should be taken with a grain of  
salt; we know that any posting reflects the immediate poster's  
viewpoint better than the one being rebutted.

As for posting what someone wrote privately, that's bad manners  
Heiko.  And a violation of copyright.  >:-(

Might I suggest some good stuff about netiquette (Besides Emily  
Postnews, which is getting a bit dated)

It's two zines from Portland about email-list dynamics and how to make  
them work best for all.

One is called "E-Mail is Not Easier" and the other is called "E-Mail  
is meaner."

Sounds fluffy but it comes from the activist world which emphasizes  
less cantankerous debate and more on constructive organizing for change.

The text in the zines is from a doctoral thesis on email dynamics.

Only two bucks each!
