[pp.int.general] PPNL needs to capitalize on this

With "flood" I do not mean to send the same message several times (I mean
unique press releases to several newspapers at once) and I do not suggest
that one should change a working communication with the press. The
"flooding" may work for a country where press releases are not yet
established, but it does need some thought and adaption to each country and
there circumstances. It is of course preferred to use the country PP mail as
sender and hope that media is not flagging it as spam.
Besides having channels to communicate with old style press, there is of
course a point in having activists blogging, this worked very well in Sweden
where even portals such as live.piratpartiet.se proven to be a very valuable
source of information for members, press etc. This also gets indexed by
search engines so a search in Google etc. will catch peoples (interested
people that may become or already are members / activists for us and press
etc.) eye over time.
I hope my message is more clear now.
