Could you clarify your request?

Boots and Sabers has a nice post about the (sometimes) unpleasant back-and-forth that can occur when a community member tries to learn more about her local governing bodies. I’ve certainly experienced that sort of stalling tactic myself. It’s usually along the lines of


“I’d like a copy of all your e-mails for the month of March, 2007”


“Please clarify what you mean by ‘e-mail'”

Me: (sound of hair tearing)

Ugh. At least I’m not the only one.

    Oh believe me, you aren’t the only one, no! I can’t believe the stone-walling going on in my own community.

    Even from Reps who say they’re SO favor open records. Right. Prove it, I say.
