ABJ has removed topix forum. Apparently too many people had their feeling hurt.

This feedback section is the only entertainment here. The actual BJ articles are almost always biased, inaccurate, and inflammatory. I stopped my subscription after they threatened by credit rating because they couldn't get their billing system updated correctly (You can thank Katie Perco, if she's still there, for that one).

Anonymous reader comments sometimes reveal truths that identification suppresses. Oh well, it's a doomed newspaper anyway - soon to turn into a tabloid. Actually, when I think about it, that may be an improvement.

Hey editors, your entire newspaper is offensive to me. Offensiveness seems to be an American right these days - what's the problem?? Are you afraid of a few off point, incendiary or offensive comments?? Just another example of the dumbing down of America. Oooh - he said a bad thing about me, my life is ruined ....

Sheesh ....

Oh well - this is the last time I waste my time here.

Well ABJ got rid of Topix as their commenting host. They have a different commenting system and it sucks.

This is the only thing that's good about the BJ. I love baiting the conservatives and other assorted nuts here.

I don't think I can have any aliases on the new system. It also doesn't seem to give you a way to find your favorite people and torture them.

Maybe they really did take rotty seriously when he reported me...

What'll I do?

What did Rotty report you for?? Were you under this name?

My computer shows Topix and it all looks the same, what am I missing? How do you guys know this information?

It seems the same to me, except my fonts are different. If I'm not on Topix, where am I?

Needless to say, this new system stinks! We all know what will happen. If anyone gets offended--and you know how easy it is to offend someone these days--you might get banned. Not to mention other forms of censorship---like when certain posters give some inside or behind-the-scenes info that now they won't say.

Looks like I'll be posting on the non-Beacon Journal boards.

But we can create forums like this one using Topix---so just search Topix.com for some Akron stories and we can all talk like we have been

Actually, we can start our own...just by going to Topix, as we just have done, and then start a new thread based on whatever BJ article we wanna discuss. So then, anyone reading a BJ article and wanting to talk about it, can just use the Topix search engine and find us.

Remember Dyer's column today---guess Stinks and Sucks both apply to Beacon management for their new discussion system.

Rotty reported me for being mean. I think we eventually reached a common understanding. Haven't seen him for a while.
topix must still exist, but apparently the BJ doesn't link to these forums anymore.

I know the posters here weren't always nice to each other, but it's kind of draconian to take away our forum.

We may not agree on everything, but we are all united in the fact that apparently WE ARE ALL HORRIBLE PEOPLE!!!

WE SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF OURSELVES!

i think king don decreed this so there'll be no against selling the sewers comments before the election...can't have people reading that many/most people are against selling the sewers for his slush fund [slush=ice and 2 shots of bourbon]...

i'm done with ohio.com ....i'll read the news on akronnewsnow.com and look for commenters on here...

maybe we should start a forum and call it 'ABJ Exiles'???

No, let's blame it on Un-Tye-Me. Why not ? Actually, we'll never know but I have an idea. Never tell.

Don't think it could have been just one person. I'll bet they've issued plenty of warnings to LOTS of people and Pluto wasn't big enough to handle all of us...sjt
