The Dreaded Meta - Election Silly Season Edition
As 'murica's great electoral pageant seems to have started quite early and with intensity this time, it seemed a good time to restate some things about C99 in order to preserve our state of calm and comity.
We expect as with previous electoral pageants interest will increase, new people will show up, old friends will drift by and occasionally folks will need to be reminded that this site supports a great diversity of opinion and likes it that way.
So, onward with the nth recapitulation of the C99 non-anthem...
C99 is a non-partisan site. We don't support any party, candidate, electoral strategy (voting or non-voting) or particular ideology beyond a general lean to the left.
Individuals are welcome to support, espouse, question, compare, contrast, challenge, satirize, parody or utterly ignore at their whim any party, candidate or electoral strategy their little heart desires within the bounds of general civility and community standards.
During the silly season pageantry, it is anticipated that as in the past folks will try to persuade each other that candidate x or y is a good fit for the issues that the C99 community supports - and other folks will try to persuade that nobody is the best candidate or, that not voting at all is the best step towards achieving the desires of the C99 community.
All of the above ideas are welcome.
In order to accommodate the broad range of opinion and interest, it is required that folks treat each other with respect and eschew certain (unfortunately) common internet behaviors like flaming, threadjacking, etc.
So there you go. Thanks for being here and enjoy the coming electoral pageant that the 1% are spending billions to bring you.
