ENDING CENSORSHIP

I participated in the Syndicate list since 1997. It was established in 1996 as a "platform for the exchange of information between East and West European cultural activists". It was projected to be an "unmoderated channel for announcements as well as for discussions on projects, events and the political situation experienced. As an experimental research project on the possibilities of building open transcultural communities by using the advantages of tactical media in decentralized structures as the Internet provides them". But I must say there were many ups and downs on that list. I was, deliberately or accidentally, who knows, removed from it several times, or politely warned by its moderator Andreas Broeckmann not to send "provocative texts", which meant texts not in accord with his, or his sponsors' political goals. Perhaps Syndicate was created by support of Soros Fund in order to work under cover of West-East cultural collaboration, in fact recruiting young people from Eastern Europe mesmerized by new technology, traveling and earning for better living, who would become useful in further liberal capitalism's colonizing move toward East ("orange", "blue" and other revolutions).

It is indicative that the archive from the period of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia (March-June 1999) was removed from the Syndicate archive, those months are empty. That was one of the questions to the moderator Broeckmann posed on list in August 2001 , when co-moderator Inke Arns has answered: "we decided to disable access to these postings in order to protect the originators of certain postings". That made me and many people on the list angry. It was a kind of censorship, in order to hide that majority of the list members in 1999 supported the bombing of Yugoslavia, and activities of the Kosovo Liberation Army. But also to erase traces of some voices on the list who strongly critcized NATO, its policy and barbaric activity, with arguments and passion. That induced further discussion on the Syndicate which lead to its end, actually to the end of Broeckmann's and Arns's horrible moderation of it, and its take over by Anna Balint and Claudia Westerman. You can see here some documentary excerpts.

i looked at Syndicate archive and there are several files with 'wrong' file permissions so you get something like that:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /mail/v2east/1999/Mar/0026.html on this server.

Dear Jaka,

this is correct. the syndicate archive does not allow access to the postings between march 1999 until may or june 1999 because of the then ongoing NATO bombings. we decided to disable access to these postings (btw: we decided upon this collectively) in order to protect the originators of certain postings.

perhaps we should discuss about whether to re-open the archive in its entirety?

best wishes,
inke

Why that ? Are you ashamed that majority on this list supported the criminal NATO act? Also ashamed that majority supported the Albanian KLA, and look what is happening now in Macedonia. The same thing as with Yugoslavia in 1999. Will you also erase one day, after the NATO occupation of Macedonia, this period March 2001 -? You should think about that decision.


In the meantime the case of NN (Netochka Nezvanova, Integer, Antiorp) has occurred. A list member, prominent artist, activist and social critic who posted under that name was suddenly, without warning unsubscribed from Syndicate. In his/her frequent mailings (3-10 daily) he/she used to criticize the list moderators, but also their sponsors, namely Georg Soros, corporate capitalism, globalism etc. So moderators "democratically" decided to silence him/her. People on the list reacted asking moderators to bring NN back, rejected their arguments that NN was "spamming the list", offering to everyone who doesn't want to read NN's postings a simple "cure" - erasing or filtering mail program. Somehow NN was also able to read the discussion and sometimes send to list (though some members) so an interesting discussion went on, putting in focus the horrible manipulation, censorship and monopoly that Broeckmann and Arns practiced on Syndicate for years. Finally moderators, under pressure of list members had to bring NN back, but in the same time they have left the list, perhaps realizing they can not further manipulate others in favour of their sponsors/ ideological instructors. For their desperate runnaway they accused NN's "spamming", instead of their own censorship. Here are some fragments of that discussion, that lead to leaving of moderators (soon they founded a new list) and take over of Syndicate by its members in August 2001. After that Syndicate happily continued its life without any conflict until today.

Be sure to read NN's words (bottom) after being returned to the list, to learn more about activities of the horrible Art.Mafia! (Lovink, Broeckmann, Arns).

nn was uns*bscribed by Syndicate admin.

Syndicate admin had an agreement with nn when Syndicate admin s*bscribed nn some months ago. back then nn promised to Syndicate admin to behave herself. it went fine in the first weeks / months. unfortunately, she lost control of herself again.

btw: nn would never either s*bcribe nor un*bscribe by herself, she doesn't seem to like majordomo.

Syndicate admin thinks that it would be a great idea for nn to open up her own list [integer]. surely many people would like to s*bscribe.

Inke, Andreas, Eric

I respect very much the work you and some other people put into the Syndicate.

Still i disagree with the way Syndicate is working: censorship and off list decision making.
This is not only about nn - it's about general attitude to the list.

Nn beside some relevant and poetic statements also bringed a disturbing noise to the list, this i agree. Still i think mail filter is better solution then censorship.

I was accused of being 'opinion maker' on Syndicate. Not true. I just wished to actively participate in something i considered as 'my*' mailing list.

Hello Syndicalists,

Just a short note: if this is the syndicate without NN,
please bring her/him/them/it back
. Or maybe the answer would be to start a list for the NN traumatized?
I don't know if there was more going on in the background that the admin had to deal with, but what is going on in the foreground is frightening. I'd much rather read/delete the interesting/annoying/funny mails from NN than what is getting generated at the moment.

disappointed,

I personally regret - tremendously - nn's leaving the list.
I never wanted that to happen, only for others to participate more. nn is one of the most original writers online - with a definite point of view as well as soft-ware that relates to it - and I have learned a great deal from h/er/im. I do feel the politics were problematic, but so are mine. And it's certainly not a blow for artistic freedom to uns*b someone; I know this first-hand since I co-moderate a number of lists (Cybermind, Cyberculture, etc.), and uns*bbing - which I've had to do - is always problematic.

Now I think you are administrating the Corporate Fascist! list. Are you satisfied now?


If you and Andreas think you will feel better after uns*bscribing me from this list too, just do it. From now on you don't have my moral confidence. I think it is the best for you to leave on this list just the Soros Swastika worshiping people and exchange your stupid corporate info with each other.

Dear Inke, maybe because of my very different background - I grew up in a totalitarian country, where I was forced into a conspirational existence, I know what it is like - i am very sensible to censorship and inclusion/exclusion matters, and i strongly disagree with banning anybody from the list. If nn does will not have opportunity to show up on the syndicate list I will inform the 'Index on Censorship' forum and paper about the situation created, and suggest to start collecting all records referring to nn's case. This paper made echoing worldwide also Salman Rushdie's affair. There is also a possibility to multiply nn, since literally anybody of us can be nn.


Dear Andreas, it seems that you banned integer from the syndicate list for very personal reasons, without surveying the opinion of the community. Integer brought up recently so many relevant questions related to art, software, funding, east-west, corporations, information management, public-private, media, media art - all core topics of the list so that now it is very much missing her/his contribution. His/her texts became much softer and readable when not encountering censorship, I am sure many people enjoyed them. Were there too many messages? Did you consider how much time it took HIM/HER to write them? I think it is necessary and nice to stick your head out, and try to solve your conflicts with integer. That you give chance that s/he defends him/herself is a minimum! It is absurd to ban from an art related list the best artists! It is absurd to not be able to stand and negotiate with an artist who won the first prize at transmediale.

not reasons more personal than yours, i believe.

but as i said in my last message, i respect your opinion and if it turns out by, say, the weekend, that there are clearly more people in favour of resubscribing nn, i will suggest to the other admins that we do it. it is quite possible that your help in adminstring the list might then be needed.

I think you have no understanding for others' interests. I must tell you I like Interger's postings more than yours. So I could ask Inke to remove you from the list. Just we are not so good pals and she would not do that as she did after your suggestion concerning Integer.

Good question. I think in building the east/west community we must begin from our personal relations, not from net theories, net criticism and same bullshit. Now our personal relations are in crisis, because of censorship (Kosovo archive banned on this list, and now one member removed because of too much mailings which is also stupid). How do you imagine that community if we don't trust each other personally? Or generally east do not trust west, or vice versa.
