Some Changes

Jan 16th, 2022

I’ve made a few changes in the hopes of getting more feedback from the community. For starters, people can now post replies to articles on the forums as guests- without having to create accounts. I also got rid of the old filters which where meant to keep spam bots at bay. Now keeping them off the forums has become a daily chore, but I hope this will make it easier for people to create accounts.

Additionally, visitors from anywhere can now write a letter to the editor for publication, and they can remain anonymous by using a pen name. Previously, letters where restricted to people in Manistee County, and they had to provide their full name which would be published with their letter. You can also write about practically anything, provided it’s not pornographic, or illegal in applying jurisdictions.

In an age where people’s careers are canceled for the slightest inkling of heretical thought, it’s more important than ever for people to speak freely.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
