The Community Guildlines are borrowed from some very successful communities on livejournal. If you are looking for a place to post whatever you want, get flamed, etc, then go to houstontx I'm sure they would love to have you!
There is nothing off-topic, just that you not post for the intent to get a massive reaction of flames. Your post will be deleted. If it continues, you will be banned. Sometimes posts that abate these 'rules' are sometimes just left there because it can become interesting, but does not necessarily reflect the agreement or disagreement regarding the subject posted.
The rules are: 1. See Above 2. Please avoid political discussions. There is a forum for that somewhere on lj. 3. I don't read every post. If there is something that you feel violates the spirit of this community, please email me.
This is a place to discuss Houston related events, music, film, parties, etc. You can post about protests but please turn comments OFF so the flame wars will not start. Please post things that have to do with living in Houston, places to shop or places to live. It's not a place to bash someone or to spout off about your political views. Quoted from another community..."I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat - you're welcome here - and you're welcome to invite everyone in the community to your event, but as soon as you start calling people names, you're fucking fired."
