Modération

This is a sad day for Finnmärck Blögzines everywhere.

The present crisis cannot be ignored. After a grueling eight minute meeting our staff union has decided to accept the offer from Edouard de Rothschild, as well as the cynical recovery plan that involves the elimination of dozens of jobs here at SHÄDY ÄCRES.

In many ways SHÄDY ÄCRES has become a seismograph for the processes that the internet media are going through everywhere in the world. The proud era of svada journalism is coming to an end. This blögzine that you people see on your screens is becoming a luxury item.

We have to face the fact that the social debate no longer takes place on web pages, but inside people’s heads.

Telepathy is the new heart of communications, and svada journalism has become a product for a limited elite. A blögzine that doesn't adapt itself to the laws of the new world will quickly find itself in an existential crisis. Regrettably, we didn't understand these social changes in time.

In our hearts we have reconciled ourselves with the inevitable. There will be unwelcome changes at SHÄDY ÄCRES, this blögzine that in the not-so-distant past was a symbol of change and hope. We are sad, for ourselves and our colleagues, who were among the standard-bearers of the Singular revolution. But we see no other option.

Today we institute comment moderation.

Well, after having consulted my therapist I must say that I am an acceptance-seeking girl, and since we have already - in an earlier post - concluded that Shädy Äcre is my father, I think that comment moderation could really be a breakthrough for me.

That is ... IF I get my approval.

Then the healing can start.

We honour your ability to make informed decisions on our behalf. All hail the Deciders!

And to those crying out for ÿtringsfrïheed, they must understand that liberty must be sacrificed in order for us to be truly free. Good fences make good policemen. Remember: freedom is a right, not a privilege.
