[Nettime-bold] Re: your mails

Hi Felix,

I only send selected messages to the nettime list.  I posted a total of 3 last 
night, unusually high number for me, but these are unusual times.  These 
messages, all important about what is going on in Palestine, are not too far off 
from many other that get posted on the list about other parts of the world by 
other nettimers.  Do you have a problem with their particular content or with the 
method of posting?

This kind of gatekeeping won't do nettime any good.  And don't you guys go 
complaining about lurkers any more.  You're not particularly welcoming.

Be well.
