Forum Rules

Welcome to The Alexander City Outlook public forum.

This website is dedicated to sharing information and opinions between people who live in the Greater Lake Martin area. This is a free service, but we have a simple few rules:

  1. Personal attacks or comments that could be considered libelous or slanderous against a named or identifiable individual are not allowed and will be removed. Anybody who violates this rule will be warned, and upon repeated violations, will be permanently banned from the site.
  2. Soliciting is not allowed.
  3. Foul language is not allowed.
  4. In order to prevent unwanted posts, we have instituted a new policy that new registered users must be activated by the administrator. If you have difficulty getting registered to use this forum, please call us at 234-4281 or e-mail

In short, when you write on the forum, remember you’re speaking to your friends and neighbors around Lake Martin. Please don’t say anything you wouldn’t say in front of your momma.
