Why do I have feeling that profiteers' greed, propagandists' exposes and the
like are on the higher universal ethical level than the drivel that 
appears on
nettime, the impotent pseudo-intellectual masturbation along the lines "they
are bad and we are good" and polluting the namespace with variations of Free
Libre etc etc etc.

Because the former have an achievable *goal*.

The truth is, no one really gives a fuck about manifesting on nettime.
Publishing here is free and gives you near-zero stature. Don't waste 
your time
and my time pretending that you're publishing in highbrow magazine with
"influence". If I want to read that I'll buy one.

Nettime used to have a good "have something to say/pathological impulse to
publish" ratio. Generic "capitalism bad something else good" essays are 
FUCKING
BORING. NO ONE READS THAT. MAKES YOU LOOK DUMB AND NOT BEING LAID IN MONTHS.

I am writing this because lately I caught myself automatically skipping
articles of more than 15-20 lines. Because they tend to be content-free.

Free-form forums like this one are good for propagating actual viral ideas,
stuff you cannot see published in more specialised venues.

So here is one: write no more than 20 lines.
