About the 'stake Forum

greenspun.com : LUSENET : 'stake : Policy
Hi there, welcome to the chuck'stake forum. [Scootch over, make some room for me on this forum bandwagon.]

This forum is for whatever it turns out to be. Talk about politics, me, current events or ancient history, pets, your favorite food, whatever. Anything and everything is up for discussion.

Only one rule stands here: Anything goes. Just as I don't hit you up for donations for reading my journal, neither will I limit you to speaking only on topics and only in terms with which I'm comfortable. Everything is fair game here, even me and mine. If I don't like something you say, I'll keep in mind that your opinion is as valid to you as mine is to me and that squashing yours isn't the same as converting you to mine. The only person I'll censor here is myself.

So with that, I'll open the floodgates with a quote from my old buddy Hard Harry in Pump Up The Volume: Talk hard!
