[-empyre-] what is going on, on nettime? (fwd)

nettime-l seems increasingly closed off; numerous voices aren't heard any more, for example nn, mez, Talan - I wrote them asking why the list is turning from cultural politics to more or less straight political economy, which can be found anywhere - the post was censored. Florian Cramer just stopped the Unstable Digest - there's no more codework there at all - he left his co-editors more or less in the lurch, not answering email, then disappearing, now back on nettime with politics. So that venue's gone and apparently at this point one can't even question the list direction onlist.

I certainly can understand nettime not posting me for any number of reasons - but the discourse is far more uniform now than ever. And since there's no discussion on nettime about this, as far as I can tell, I thought I'd open this up on other lists - (mez by the way suggested I do so).

Any thoughts?
