Back then, only about 100 of you liked us on facebook, and we’ve had more than 550 of you join us since then--- welcome! Today’s blog is a reminder/orientation about what kind of blog/facebook page you are reading.
It’s called Cherokee Truth-- not Cherokee Rumor, Cherokee Gloat, Cherokee Innuenedo, or Cherokee Borderline Slander. It’s okay to express opinion here, but do so respectfully. If you have a theory (like say, the missing votes in the recount were really just 3-D holograms that fooled the balloting machines), don’t post it unless you can back it up with a credible source. If you can’t back up your version of the truth with some verifiable facts, take a deep breath, then go find some facts and come back and share.
Over the next few days, we’ll get back to our roots of pointing out what is and isn’t true about what either camp or candidate is saying. This blog/facebook page is not for everyone --- it’s only for people who like to have factual discussions about Cherokee politics in a respectful way. If you want to do that, please stick around. If you don’t, feel free to retreat to whatever dark corner of the internet you usually hang out in. Like we’ve said before, there are plenty of places on the web to post your unfounded conspiracy theories and personal attacks; this is not that place.
Personal attacks on candidates or others, outlandish/untruthful claims and obscenity are not tolerated and will be deleted. You can call that censorship if you want. We call it “our page, our rules.” If the hatefulness continues we will change the settings so that no one may post on the wall. We really don’t want to go there, so police yourselves.
And, if you’re new to the blog and want a good dose of truth, paddle backwards and check out our archives. Thanks for reading and for your interest in the Truth.
