If you are new to this site, you may ask, why is it here?  It exists because in my opinion, our local news outlets do not go far enough in reporting the news.  They are short staffed, time constrained, and always under the gun to produce something to print FAST!

This leads to lack of context, omissions and less than the full story.

We don't have this problem, because we rely on many citizen reporters to bring us the news and to comment on it.

REGISTRATION

You do not need to register in order to read, but you must register in order to post.  

You may register by sending an email with your requested username to smf@lowtech.us.

If you register, you are encouraged to use a non-identifiable email address if you wish to remain anonymous.  Why not simply create a new one at www.gmail.com?

RULES

Posts purporting to identify the true name of anonymous posters are not allowed and will be deleted.  Posts criticizing others for posting anonymously will be deleted also.

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Fair use of copyrighted material is acceptable under current copyright law.  Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.  Posts purporting to identify the true name of anonymous posters are not allowed and will be deleted.  If you hijack a post, you might find your post deleted.  If you attack without substance, or make a post that uses information in such a way that lacks context and turns the truth on its head, you might find your post deleted. It is not a violation of the rules to creatively use someone's name in a way that implies an opinion.  For example, Obummer vs. Obama. This creativity does not require the person spoken of to be a public figure.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we cannot continuously monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, Marty Tennant, staff, or the advertisers.

Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify Marty Tennant immediately by calling (843) 527-4485. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You may post anonymously.  This does not mean you are not responsible for the content of your posts.

You have the ability, if you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information or posts the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, anonymous or otherwise, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
