Topic of the week - The resignation of worker

As of this date (August 17th, 2015) Worker has officially resigned as the figurehead and moderator of anarchistnews.org. Worker will no longer be the operator of this site. That task will now be passed to an editorial crew named thecollective.

Further notes are from Worker about their time at anarchistnews.org


Worker has served as a useful nom de plume for the operation of this website but it has expired as a position I can reasonably stand by any longer.

This is going to be the first in what I hope is a series of editorials that we host on relevant topics. We'll sticky the post for a 5 or 7 day period and see if we can have some civil and compelling conversations about topical (and site related) topics.

We'll start with a standard one.

What is the purpose of comments on anarchistnews.org and what is troubling about moderation of these comments.

Day Zero, redux

It's been three years or so since the last horrible data purge. Welcome to day zero... again.

Anarchist News was hit by the major horrorshow in drupal land (also called drupalgeddon) that I have valiantly been trying to fight off for the past two weeks but to no avail. The @news database and filesystem were deeply compromised and I could not solve the riddle of how the hackers were getting in. This left me one solution, rebuild.
