Welcome to The Mannford Reporter Online where you can read your morning newspaper over a cup of coffee!

The Mannford Reporter Online is where you can place your orders off our menu and sit down over coffee and dessert to discuss the morning news or converse among friends.

A weekly editorial will be posted every Sunday and will highlight a news article we have discussed during the week prior or a new article of the mods choosing.

We want you to enjoy your stay here as much as possible and to do so, please abide by these guidelines:

Don’t be a jerk.
We will not tolerate any name-calling, personal attacks or harassment of any kind. Racism, bigotry, misogyny or any other inappropriate responses will be removed.

Absolutely NO drama!
Do not bring drama from a different channel onto this one. Personal attacks against a mod will not be tolerated. Do not pursue an argument with a mod from another channel they mod to this one.

Stay on topic.
If your post does not address the article or relate to it in some context, you will be asked to take your conversation to the Coffee Lounge and your post deleted.

No trolling
If you post a deliberately offensive or provocative comment with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them, your post will be deleted. Continue the behavior, and you will be asked to leave.

No stalking
If you follow someone to this channel to continue an argument you have had with them on another or to harass them, your post will be deleted. Continue the behavior, and you will be asked to leave.

No sock puppets
If you try to circumvent a ban by returning with a sock puppet or new account, you will earn an instant ban; no warning needed.

No serial flagging
Flagging is to be done only if the commenter has violated the Disqus Terms of Service, contains spam or offensive language. Flagging simply because you do not agree with someone is unacceptable.

Community members may post threads, but they must be framed correctly.

Articles first with links to credible sources.

No personal opinions in the OP.
That is why there is a discussion thread.

No rants.

*All rules are subject to change.

We are also obligated by Disqus to abide by the basic rules. The following are not allowed on Disqus:

1) Targeted harassment and encouraging others to do so
3) Impersonation
4) The direct threat of harm
5) Posting personally identifiable information
6) Inappropriate profile content

Thank you for taking the time to read these guidelines. We hope you enjoy your stay here!
