But I think it will help to brace the NOLA situation in the context it happeneing in other places as well.
If we can begin talking about it then it is less likely to take people by surprise/feel helpless and we can start working on a system of accountability for when such a thing occurs.

Well in your case, this guy has actually hijacked Occupy NOLA, so we need to blast this info out and you need to create backup websites, twitter and donations accounts that function under the NOLA GA so that people have a place to go once he is outed. If you already have those then we just need to work on communicating the situation and broadcasting it.

I agree in theory, but this particular situation is more complicated
then that. HOw would you propose I make it clear that the websites in
question are NOT representative of the GA without having to inform
people that the "other" media is controlled by one individual?
