Re: <nettime> In brig, WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning ordered to sleep without clothing


Dear Michael, nettimers,

Maybe we are forgetting about some of the net.history, and fail to recognise a specific net.phenomenon (that should be well-known to nettimers) - the Troll.

Seems we have one on the list and there's a well established set of measures how to deal with them - one of the classic manuals for net.moderators is here:
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/net-abuse-faq/troll-faq/ 

Reminds me somewhat of the 'Netzvanonva' thing on nettime quite a few years back, just that this would be a 'wet.bot', rather than a 'net.bot'.

Cheers,
Eric

Private Manning makes a decision clearly based on the dictates of his conscience and as a result he's held in conditions that shouldn't be used even when we're talking about a convicted rapist or killer -- and John Young dismisses concern over his mental health both because he has the bravery to stand up to his tormentors and on the astonishing grounds that because he's gay, being forced into total nudity must be a big turn on to him anyway. What's this kind of shit doing on nettime, and who's doing the masturbating here?
