A Crash Course in Village Square
In the time we've been trying our hand at having civil conversation, we've learned a thing or two. So as you wade into our wiki, give some thought to our Village Square 101 principles, organized into pithy little essays (uh that means we just throw stuff in there when we think of it). It's advice your mom would give you if she had any idea at all of what a wiki is and could even imagine that you'd ever be rude. And, like mom, we probably go long and a little preachy. (Click on each picture to hear our yammer...) Want to suggest another principle? Why not send it on over our way. Oh and please brush your teeth.
