Re: <nettime> The Ideology of Free Culture and the Grammar of Sabotage

Is it just me ? When I see a snippet like the one above I just skip everything.
This content-free stuff is so easy to recognise thanks to the adoption of a
very narrow standardized inter-bred vernacular, that I am tempted to construct
a filter that will trash messages based on on a single word and word-pair
frequency analysis.

Pairs are relatively safe, single entries are more tricky, the frequency
thresholds need to be rather high for them.

I already have several entries to this filter dictionary, but all contributions
are welcome and I'll publish the cumulative result.

living energy
cultural space
free culture
memetic propagation
self organisation
