The remarkable and unique thing about the way email, the web and, above
all, mailing lists like nettime functioned during the Nato bombing of
Jugoslavia was the reports (diarys) of the people being bombed.

While not always agreeing with Ted - or the moderation policy of the
nettime list - I thought that they did a very good job during the war.
Reducing the mail volume to the level of the readable was a major
achievment - and I didn't detect any "censoring".
