Hi, this is the administrator for the Lebanon community discussion list. I just wanted to welcome you to the list. If you have any questions about what's appropriate to post, or about anything else having to do with the list, always feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To post a message to the community discussion list, simply send an email message to
Everyone subscribed to the list will receive a copy of each message. POSTS ARE NOT MODERATED AND CANNOT BE DELETED ONCE THEY ARE SENT. It is almost certain that postings on this discussion list will be read by people from outside the Lebanon area as well as representatives of newspapers and other media outlets. All posts are publicly available to anyone in the archives section of the lists home page.
-This is a town-specific list.
-Do not subscribe to multiple lists for the purpose of posting in multiple towns. (see below).
- Postings should be on issues and events primarily affecting Lebanon. This isn't the venue for Upper Valley or state-wide issues. Use the Upper Valley list for that purpose http://lists.vitalcommunities.org/lists/info/uppervalley. Another way to post an item relating to another town is to find someone in the town in which you wish to post and ask them to post your item and connect it to the town in some way.
- While anyone is welcome to subscribe, we ask that only residents, representatives of town government, and representatives of organizations and businesses located in Lebanon post.
- To get the best participation from the most people, we need to keep the tone of posts civil. Personal attacks can get a subscriber kicked off, and uncivil tone will likely inspire a conversation with the administrator.
You can remove your address from the list at any time by sending any message to:

Vital Communities does not control and assumes no legal or editorial responsibility for any content distributed through the community discussion lists. Content is generated by individual subscribers, who each bear responsibility for their individual postings. Content posted to the discussion lists is automatically distributed to the subscribers and Vital Communities cannot retract or modify any such content before it is sent to subscribers. All historical content is publicly accessible in the archives (Vital Communities can remove content from the archives after the fact upon request from the original poster). Volunteer individual discussion list administrators in each town are responsible for post-facto monitoring of the content of a town discussion list and may, at their own discretion, issue private warnings to individual subscribers or public guidelines to the entire discussion list if, in their sole judgment, any of the Posting Guidelines or General Rules are repeatedly violated.
