What is your letters to the editor policy?
Deadline 5 p.m. Monday. Letters must be sent only to The East Hampton Star and to no other publication, group, or Web site. The Star does not publish anonymous letters, or those judged to be proselytizing, an invasion of privacy, libelous, or obscene. Letters that are copies of those sent to public officials or other individuals or groups, or contain lengthy quotations will be dealt with as we judge appropriate. We consider it unethical and a misuse of our letters pages for people who did not write letters to identify themselves as the authors. Press releases addressed as letters will be handled as appropriate. Writers are directed to make use of The Star’s free “Cards of Thanks” when more than three individuals or businesses must be listed. All letters, including those sent by e-mail, must carry a street address and phone number for verification. Letters can be submitted by mail, fax, or e-mail. email@example.com.
