About Midwest Voices
Midwest Voices is a community forum created to foster discussion on issues that matter to our region, nation and the world. We hope to create conversation among neighbors in this region who like to debate the issues of the day.
Rules of Civic Engagement
Comments are moderated and may be edited. Please use good taste and courtesy. Absolutely no name-calling of politicians, government officials, opinion writers or others posting comments — it’s unimaginative and besides, you can do better just making your point clearly and quickly.
When presenting factual information, take care that it is accurate and cite and/or link to sources where appropriate. This includes your representation of yourself: Absolutely no spoofing; presenting yourself as another person is grounds to delete your account.
Although we are not responsible for the content of the comments, we reserve the right to remove comments that are threatening, libelous, obscene or otherwise objectionable. To emphasize, this means no profanity or vulgarity, racially or sexually offensive speech — even if you’ve substituted part of the words with symbols.
