im new to rumori, but i really appreciate this discourse, so thank you.
re grayday, why give it any respect via attention? attacking a megacorp, or
the rapacious institutions, like mattel, or sony, that makes perfect sense
to me. but the propaganda at the begginning of the digital divas site sounds
like somebody feels cheated , like somebody's "feelings got hurt". a few
grey pages on the net for a couple of hours will hardly register as a small
smudge in the larger scheme of things. they obviously havent noticed the
artful role that appropriation plays in their lives...
