This is a friendly, relaxed list for the Takoma Park neighborhood in Washington DC, and nearby. All are welcome but messages should be related to the neighborhood or topics being discussed by residents. Please do not post commercial messages, press releases, or solicitations. Also, please post informative messages, rather than "Me too" of "I agree" types, and please EDIT THE TAILS of your notes so they do not grow increasingly long.
New members are moderated to reduce spam. To encourage conversation, replies go to the whole list. Reply directly to the sender when appropriate by changing the "to" address. Most email programs provide a way to do this. Attachments are removed, so paste information into your message, or better, a brief summary and web address.
Please identify yourself in your postings, and if you are new, the street where you live; we like to know who's writing.
