PURPOSE: A lively group to (politely) discuss political matters of interest to the Pearland, Texas area, especially those related to local municipalities and Brazoria County.
When requesting membership, please provide your full name and address. This information will be kept strictly confidential and only available to the moderators. Everyone is welcome here, including those from outside of Silverlake and the surrounding areas; but, if you are outside of Silverlake and the immediate surrounding area please also include your reason for desiring membership.
PLEASE sign your full name and the area in which you live, or have it somewhere in your post. THIS IS REQUIRED! For example:
A FEW RULES:
DO NOT post any material which is knowingly false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, hateful, or otherwise a violation of any law.
NO PERSONAL ATTACKS. Discussions are welcome and as we are passionate by nature, so are our emotions about certain topics. Discuss, debate, argue point-counter point, but if ever taken to the "personal", or you risk moderation. If you do not like what someone is posting, simply move on. Some issues will never be resolved, as such - gun control, abortion, etc., and are best left elsewhere.
MASKING TEXT. Inserting other symbols to mask objectionable words is frowned upon. Such as: No Sh*t. Kiss my @ss (Sorry – I had to give an example or some of you would claim ignorance.)
BE TOLERANT. Some folks use poor grammar, make mistakes and cannot spell very well, especially when emotions are running high. Don’t come across condescending in an effort to make them feel stupid by pointing it out.
DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS AS I JUST DID - it makes it look like you're yelling!
