Every registered user of this site — yes, this means you! and you!! — can write a diary and it’s automatically front-paged. No permission needed, no moderation required to make that happen.
We do ask that you keep your diaries more or less on topic for this site: food, wine/spirits/beer, politics, gardening, alternative energy, farming, the environment. That’s a pretty wide-open field right there. We also ask that all content be original. If you do post the words of other people, please blockquote and link.
Similarly, every registered user can comment. We don’t moderate and we don’t want to moderate. We have lives, other things to do, and we expect anyone interested in this blog understands the requirements for unmoderated posting.
We’re not terribly restrictive; we only ask that you not engage in drama queening or Blogging While Drunk. If you’re angry with one of us, or hate us for whatever reason, that’s your right. We probably already know. We may even hate you, too – but we have other things to worry about. And, if you’re drunk, we’re happy for you. Have a great time! Just don’t make it our problem.
Please have at it! We need and want your voices on PolitiCook. This is your place as much as ours. Let’s make it great.
