I was having a happy day today, lots of hit on the site, some new posts etc, then bam!
A comment from some kind of political party rolls in for moderation.
I had to think carefully, we are trying to be inclusive, but a political party really stifles the voice of the individual and ultimately replaces individual voice with the voice of the representative (which are not always the same).
So far I have not approved this comment.
How should we proceed with political parties wanting to use us as a political platform?
I’m inclined to say no given the fact that politicians and parties of many different stripes attempted to use Occupy Melbourne as their resource in different ways.
