The goal of this blog is to create a forum where GVEA members can exchange intelligent and informed commentary that enriches our cooperative’s communications. We encourage and value polite comments representing a range of views. Here are a few things we won’t tolerate on our blog: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), blatantly false information presented as fact and commercial promotion. While most comments will remain posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, we retain the right to be subjective. We will make decisions as carefully and consistently as we can.
Comments are welcome and appreciated on this blog. We just ask that you give a valid email address and name.
