The political discussions on the NEPA city-data are, for the most part,
restricted to local politics anyway. The politics are here, I see no
reason why the discussion should not be as well.

Non controversial topics = no posters and a false reality

Can we ask that the posters who do not LIVE in NEPA use the
general forums that you suggested as well?

I don't think that's fair. There are plenty who are either relocating here or who have lived here their entire lives and have recently moved away.

This whole TOS & argueing thing has gotten out of hand & I'm saddened by the whole situation. I, as well as many others, used to enjoy posting here.

There goes the NEPA neighborhood...

Even so. Are we expected to let these 'illegal immigrants'
of the c-d world come onto our forum, which is an
extension and expression of our local daily life, and
dictate how we are to act and what we are to say?

Especially when they just arrive back in NEPA from a failed stint on the left coast and all of sudden want to dictate what we can and can't post on the NEPA forum, and constantly reports posts to the moderator (even worse is the fact that the posts she reports are often replies to her snarky posts). The funny part is, the person I'm referring to also pulls the same garbage on the forum for where she used to live....

I won't name names, but I think I've dropped enough clues.

Illegal immigrants? What are you talking about? Yes, I would expect someone who is planning on moving here to take an active role in their new home area's forum? I would also expect a lifer that has since moved to do the same.

No one is dictating anything. People are allowed to have opinions.
