Tired of writing letters to an absent President? Tired of posting anti-republican and anti-capitalist rants on this website, essentially preaching to the choir? Here's something useful you can do for Occupy...
It's time to clear the corpses from the battlefield. There are a lot of Occupy Internet resources which have died out, but which remain online. This makes Occupy look bad.
We should take a day to write emails to the administrators of these various sites to either take them down, take care of them, or find someone who can take care of them. Nothing looks worse for us than dead webpages. It makes it look like we are dead. We should never let anyone smell the corpses of our dead soldiers.
1 - Go to the InfoTent tab on this website.
2 - Go to the links one by one.
3 - If you find a dead site, or a dead forum on a site, write an email to the administrator so it can get fixed.
Here are two examples of unfortunate Internet death:
If you go to Occupy Chicago, then click on "Discussion Forum", then click in the category "General Discussion" you will see this:
You'll notice the forum has been left for dead, and is filled with spam. This is an example of a forum which should be removed from the site.
Visit the website for "Occupy Dublin". You'll notice the site is down and all that remains is the output of a phpinfo() call. Here's the link:
This is an example of a dead site, or a badly configured site. We should try to find who owns this so that we can fix the problem.
Also, until these problems are fixed, you should email jart or zoe so that they take the links off the InfoTent page.
Try all the links in the InfoTent, I just provided two examples, but there are a lot more.
This is a posting by your friend Thrasymaque, so it will be taken down very fast. If you read this, pass the info to your friends. Help clean up Occupy Internet resources. It's your first call to activism. Do it well.
