I read two articles, one of Berliner Zeitung and one of Ulrike Meinhoff
of Bambule etc fame on Dresden. The article in the Berliner Zeitung was on
the old dispute between Berlin and Tel Aviv on where the russian jews
should go to. I dont know what this had to do with any neofaschist
propaganda. If the russian jews want to go to Berlin, let them go....

The article on Dresden was very 60s like. A lot of horrors common
today were missing and the problems described look rather luxurious.
And horrors of past times, the pest etc. Anyway, all the article and the
link produced was confusion. What did the author of the link wanted to

So I dont think there is much neonazi thinking behind.

On the other hand some politisation does not harm. More of such spam,
right, left, it doesnt matter, everything is better than penis

What surprised was that the usual blocking software was more or less
useless. Maybe messages, that dont contain certain magic words (like
Chi+lis etc) do get through.
