As host of the bulletin board the Methownet.com staff has the right to remove posts at their discretion. All opinion posts must bear the full, real name of the person making the post and no offsite links are allowed. Methownet.com reserves the right to close any thread at their discretion. In addition, we may remove posts for the following reasons:
1) posts with language or images of a slanderous, libelous, mean or rude nature
3) bumping your post to the top
4) posts which are commercial in nature
5) firearms sales - Washington State law requires that private sales and transfers of firearms (those that do not involve a federally licensed dealer as a party to the transaction) be completed through a licensed dealer.
6) political posts*
Users may be banned for:
2) repeated rules violations
3) mean behavior
4) other stuff
Post in your own words and keep it civil.
*We encourage political debate to take place in the cafes, events, on the streets or over the fence – all in person – rather than online where it contributes to animosity and breakdown of trust. Alternatively, the editorial page of the Methow Valley News is also a thoughtful channel for civil discourse and an effective way to bring attention to important topics facing our community.
