**A few additional notes**

This place can get pretty heated at times, especially during election years or during particularly bumpy political situations.  While there really is no problem with naming elected officials and voicing your complaints, be sure that you never accuse them of anything that you cannot or would not be willing to back up with proof.  Otherwise, then it could be considered defamation and you may be committing libel.  We don’t want that.  Any comments that are determined to be borderline will most likely be edited or deleted.  You may be contacted privately via email (if you have provided one) in order to give you a chance to make the appropriate edits on your own, but this will be a judgement call by the administrators of the site.

Additionally, you absolutely may NOT use this site in order to defame any public or private citizen.  Basically, don’t come on here and tell everybody that Joe Bob, Jr. lives beside you and has been stealing peoples’ cows and chicken eggs, or Susie Q is letting her pit bull make a mess in your lawn and you are fed up with it.  There are appropriate places to settle such disputes and allegations, and this is definitely not it.

However, that does not mean that you cannot complain about how mad you get when dogs crap in your yard, or people steal cows or chicken eggs, or lay black marks down the highway in front of your house.  You simply cannot name people’s names and use this forum as a place to try and settle those issues.

Again, just use a little common sense, and everything should work out just fine.

    What’s up Dave?
    Some of the elected crowd complaining?

    “While there really is no problem with naming elected officials and voicing your complaints, be sure that you never accuse them of anything that you cannot or would not be willing to back up with proof.”

    Good advice there, but not too big a problem when a certain badgeman come a knocking at my door more than once and I had the opportunity to confront him with facts in front of all the neighbors. 🙂
