Now that He-who-shall-not-be-named is safely in jail and not posting here, I propose the following friendly rules to clean up the La Porte forum. I know there will always be one or two jackasses who are paid to disrupt or who hate themselves so much they can't stop. But these are very reasonable and I pledge to follow them myself:

1. If you can't say something nice, don't say it.
2. No profanity (unless quoting a news item)
3. No Name calling.
4. Don't hijack a thread. Start a new one.
5. Pick ONE name and stick with it,
6. Don't reply to your own post like you are someone else (see number 5.)
7. DO agree, if you support a post.
8. DO post something new every day
9. DO Take a break if you can't resist being nasty.

We have a great opportunity right now. I sincerely believe that if some of us would behave ourselves, this forum might evolve into a very helpful place for the La Porte community. Post the LPHS sports scores. Debate the Texan's Draft picks. The Astros opening day is April 1. Traffic issues in LP? Pollution? City spending and projects?

Yolanda, you are taking all my fun away!!!!

Seriously, i think this is a good oppurtunity to clean things up. All we would really need to do is to stay on topic. Not let arguments in one thread spill over into every thread and totally dominate the board. However, we are debaters and the board will never be free from anything you mentioned above. But if we can contain it to one thread, we would look less stupid as a group.

True. But there is a civilized way to debate and offer alternative points of view.

Well, this exercise is worthless, unless you can clearly see that Yolanda is Elaine is WMTB is Elaine.

You want to clean up this site? Do not respond to anything anyone above writes.

Can't you at least give it a try?
