Topix.com is Another Example That Civility Is Dead

There are 567 comments on the bigfatmarketingblog.com story from Mar 26, 2010, titled Topix.com is Another Example That Civility Is Dead . In it, bigfatmarketingblog.com reports that:

Don’t go with Topix.com. It’s a cesspool for bottom-feeding Internet trolls who have nothing better to do but cowardly hide behind aliases and leave racist, homophobic, libelous, slanderous, tasteless, classless and downright rude comments on every article it attaches itself to. And apparently the publications that use Topix.com do not have the ability to remove those comments, no mater how much its reputation can be damaged.

Topix.com sunk to a new low this week, giving consumers to self-serve privilege to remove racist, homophobic, libelous, slanderous, tasteless, classless and downright rude comments left about them… for a $19.95 fee. That’s just as disgusting as the trolls who have helped spearhead the death of civility on the Internet.

Well the attorneys general of Connecticut and Kentucky are looking into this. But Topix.com CEO Chris Tolles says the attorneys general are “grandstanding.”

I was trying to find the original blog discussing the incivility of Topix, but it's no longer there. I suspect the owners have removed it. Perhaps, truth too painfully revealing?

I am sure I have it somewhere. Can you give me an approximate date for it and the title of the thread or a key word from it. My database is not well organized but it is huge and goes back to 2006. I will have access to it tomorrow and will look for it while I search for another one that I need. PM me with the key words or title of it or post them before tomorrow afternoon and I will try to help you.(there are so very many)

Enough with the taking of our internet freedom of expression. Now it's becoming that an OPINION is libelous.
