This is where American citizens are welcome to share their adventures in Senseless Land. It is helpful to know that you are not alone and to see how other American citizens are coping with the Census Bureau’s insanity. So feel free to post your experiences in the comments at the bottom of this page. There are a few guidelines though. Not following the guidelines will make this page unpleasant for everyone and will cause your post to be deleted.
Please don’t advocate violence. I know we all have days when we feel like just blowing our tops but advocating violence on this website will get the post deleted.
Please do not use profanity. Posts with profanity in them will get deleted.
Please do not name anyone by name, not a census worker or supervisor or anyone.
Please do not post the phone numbers or addresses or email addresses of anyone, including census workers.
Please make sure the story is true and that it’s your story, not your neighbor’s or your first cousin twice-removed. If they have an interesting story to tell about the census then send them a link so they can tell theirs.
Please try to limit the word count to around 250. I know that might be hard because of the craziness of the census bureau but please try. Two hundred-fifty words is a double spaced, 8.5″ X 11″ sheet of paper. Limiting the word count will make it easier for everyone to read the posts.
Please, no rants or diatribes just the facts and of course, your opinion. Otherwise I’ll have to spend time editing posts which will probably provoke me to close the comments.
And of course, please keep the posts on the topic of the census.
So, with all that out of the way, Resident Apt.1 and other American citizens are looking forward to hearing about your adventures in Senseless Land.
