    I hope they figure out something at some point, this is starting to get annoying.  The fact they couldn't agree on a statement that's basically "Everyone stay out of each others' way and don't talk shit about each other to the media" is not encouraging.

      I doubt it would make any difference.

      I am finding most people treat GA and proposals the same way they treat things in their outside of occupation life - they adopt and/or enhance the things that  please them or that they can use to manipulate you and they conveniently ignore the things that don't suit them.  There are some of us who take it to heart and honor the process but I am finding a real fringe element who make a mockery of the whole thing.

      60% of these people would agree to principles that would keep people from saying anything negative about violence or vandalism? That's disturbing. If that gets on the news there will be very little public support for this movement. That smashy black bloc BS does not make this look like a movement that most Americans (or even most liberals) will have any sympathy for. Endorse those tactics or even say that you won't openly show disgust for those tactics and you will see more people siding with the police in spite of their use of force.
