Some Starting Guidelines

New subject posts to this forum will only be allowed by approved contributors- each of whom must have a Google account. Whether or not regular contributors reveal their true identity will be a personal decision. We hope to solicit involvement of the Town Manager, School Superintendent, School Committee Chair and others to help enrich the debate on this forum.

(Signing up for a Google account is a short 2 minute exercise and there is no charge.)

We are currently soliciting people interested in becoming regular contributors to this new forum. Subjects will be limited to local issues rather than state or national issues or general politics. Interested people should send their letter of interest to: longmeadowbuzz@comcast.net. Please include your name and phone number.

Reader comments to this forum will be allowed by anyone with a Google account. By requiring Google accounts authorship of posts + comments should be reasonably secure.

Comments will be "moderated" prior to their appearance in the forum so as to exclude irrelevant or obnoxius responses.

This forum is an attempt to provide a means for constructive debate about issues facing our town. We hope that participants will behave in a responsible and courteous manner or else this effort will end up in the same situation as the Mass Live forum where such debate is not possible. If you are not interested in what we are trying to do, please stay away!

Thanks for starting this! Perhaps an odd coincidence, but another Longmeadow-related blog is also up and running: http://greenlongmeadowgreen.blogspot.com/

I look forward to reading here often.
