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 have been a member of web sites that were just as bad. Yet, those web sites evolved into positive sites. Topix is hell bent to rebel, say something positive and here come wacko. Say something negative and you're a wacko.
If we say up, here comes hell saying down.
If we say over, here come hell saying above.
If we say true, here come hell saying lie

And what's wrong with "trolling"?
There's nothing like trolling, and getting a strike!
I love it, the same group that calls themselves so righteous, and liberal, will attack you in a NY minute! They will name call,(one of their favorite ploys)in order to change the subject.
There's nothing more than I love is, tap dancing on a dumb Negro's brain.

I think topix is a great place for debate and hate....I mean come on it's a wonderful place to stop by and vent. Really they should change the name to VENT.com . I don't take much of what ppl say seriously because things said here usually won't be said anywhere but here...Most of the beliefs run across I hope will die with the ignorant ppl who post them.

They should require user accounts, three innapropriate posts- boot 'em off.

Hey guys,
Point of clarification. There is and has always been a free feedback system on Topix.(All you have to do is click the Feedback link on the bottom of any Topix page.) In ADDITION to that, due to user demand, we added an option for expedited review for users that didn't want to wait for the normal feedback. That wait is usually between 3-7 days. That's pretty awesome for a site our size. Try comparing that around the magical interwebs.
We receive thousands upon thousands of free feedback requests every month. We routinely remove content based on those pieces of feedback.
Quite simply, anyone claiming that you need to pay to have content removed is completely mistaken.
I've requested comments be removed countless tims and never paid a cent...I think there is maybe one time the request was denied....Topix has always been good about removing vulgarposts, personal information posts and moderating when a local forum goes bad... Thanks guys.

I've been on topix for about a year now. There are plenty enough bigots of many colours. There are plenty of people who don't like gays and a few who don't like straights. There are plenty of airheads, stupid liberals, idiot conservatives and any other brand worth complaining about. However, there are enough people who would like a good and possibly educational discussion on a wide variety of topics, it's worth putting up with the rif-raf.
One day the bigots of all colours will realize they are the entertainment for the elites and the powers that be. So long as we continue to fight among ourselves, the power-brokers will do just exactly what they want to do, because we (that's collectively) are too stupid to watch them and instead we insist on fighting amongst ourselves.
So keep on bitching about others' differences; things they have and had no control over, like their colour. Keep the billionaires and the government elites entertained until they fully own you. Thanks for your help.

I agree, as long as the powers that be continue to create discension and confusion among the masses, the masses will feed on themselves, instead of the powers that be. And that dear friends is how Barack Hussein Obama got into the oval office.

I like TOPIX and come here to read all the news. I disagree that it is racist, or homophobic. Maybe people are reading something into all those misspelled words. The people who hate TOPIX need to get a life.

They already do fully own us, and our 2 party political system is a joke. Tea-Party for example is mostly based off of pissed off americans sick of paying taxes and watching it go to big corporations, What does the media do? It turns it into a republican convention, it turns it into a pro-choice and shows that it is littered with racists! By doing this it easily divides the people making sure that democrats don't add to the ranks, and non-whites as well. This is similar to the anti-globalization protests in Seattle 99, when they labeled the protesters as unwarranted vandals.

AMEN!!! As far as libelous, slanderous, tasteless, classless and downright rude comments go, they didn't want to call it Topix, but New York Times was already taken.
