We were offline for a few months. Something about a story we published from one of our many anonymous contributors made a local business owner upset, and that led to threats of legal action for slander or defamation. What we have since learned, however, is that Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act states that the owner of a web site cannot be held responsible for the content posted by anonymous parties. And since this entire blog is made up of anonymous contributions which are not created by the site's owners, all we can do is merely remove any offensive content upon verbal or written request from an offended party.

So, if you don't like something that has been posted to this site, please contact us and we will promptly consider removing the content. We are here to blog and to serve our readers, not to make enemies. Also, if you have a tip or a story, send it our way to get the word out.

Anyway, blogward ho!

We had to remove the offending article. Even if we have a right to publish the information that pissed that business owner off, it doesn't mean we want to make enemies around here. We respect the integrity of our fellow citizens and don't want lawsuits flying either way, called-for or not.

Thanks for reading, though!
