This is the community for students and friends of UMass Amherst. Feel free to speak your mind as long as you do it in a polite and mature way.
Open expression of opinions of all kinds are welcome here. However, if your opinion is judgemental or negative against a specific person or group, you will be expected to back it up. "Those people suck because I say so," is not acceptable.
People are welcome to express their political views on this Community, be they about nation or local politics. However, should you desire to use this as a forum for negative political statements about other students, you should be ready to back up any accusations you make. Failure to do so may result in the post being deleted and your being banned from the community. I'm sure this will not be an issue, but this needed to be said, so no one can say I didn't warn them.
I hope that you enjoy the community and find it fun and informative.
Please address any comments on the community to fireheart
Due the the issues with Free I-Pods, there shall be no posting of such invitations on this community. The first time you do this, I will erase the post and warn you. The second time, you will be banned.
