Now and then topics are introduced onto the website that are controversial. That’s fine- the website is well set up to function as a forum for responsible discussion of community issues. With several very controversial issue discussions appearing on the website in it\’s short history, we believe it is necessary to set out what we feel are reasonable parameters for posting articles or comments on the site.
The administrators of the website will post information upon request without judging those postings beyond being appropriate for a public forum and on a topic or issue focused on this specific area.
