sorry to hear this Philip.  I don't think there's any particular grudge against the 2 sites in question though.  As you say, it's just mindless... any site, no matter the subject matter, that invites postings will attract its fair (or unfair) share of garbage, sadly


keep 'em up  -  as read only  -  they're an invaluable resource

hi, so, inevitably I disabled the posting and data insert ability fo the 
"subversive nub", and today did the same with "the filmmakers
list" ...

so, right now 
everything is "read only" - which is somewhat bad and against the
of it, but its useless if someone's just writing junk to the pages. 
not sure why someone out there would do that, but they have, choosing to
attack the profiles of:

  joel schlemowitz
  diego costa
  konrad steiner

I don't think any data was lost.  I'm trying to figure out what is the
appropriate action to take and after that I'll do something.

the very idea was that these would be open to the public and serve as a
"free and open" data repository where people could go and post and 
describe films and people from the experimental film community would write 
and this and that - the format wasn't "perfect" but was workable
... but
right now I'm not sure what to do about the posts so, for the meantime 
I've disabled the posting ...
