Crikey, people seem to have read an awful lot into this short post. I didn't say that the debate wasn't important or that it shouldn't continue. Quite the opposite: it's so important that we should focus on what we can do about it, and how international examples can usefully inform tactics for resistance.
Yes, fragmentation won't help at all - let's not argue about whether animation is art, or indeed that cruel and oppressive CRUMB list owner ;) but get these letters drafted - fab idea Pauline!
I've been trying to set up a new WIKI for this purpose, but failing dismally (if only I knew about new media!). Anyone else got one ready to go? Marc? In the meantime, you can use Pauline's list or CRUMB, I'm not worried as long as we keep each other posted and keep it focused ...
