What is the job description for a 'Community Manager'? How do they determine which posts to delete? Why do they often allow trash talking to continue while at the same time deleting benign posts or opinions on controversial subjects? What subject matters are considered taboo and why?
Sybil, just a suggestion; I would contact Topix for those answers. You aren't going to get an honest answer here. You as well as I know the score on this topic.

Apparently then, it's apparent that the TopMods aren't focused on just ONE or TWO users in this thread like the complainers suggest they are.... That's obvious beings as someone else who came in here to cause a riot had their comment(s) zapped too.
Imagine that....
Oh Nope I wish you had seen it. LOL He was all big and bad and running that mouth one minute then when "wtf" threatened him he shut up mid-sentence and disappeared! HAAAAA! I guess "wtf" didn't appear to be a woman so he was skeerd. LOL Oh well, bless his heart. haha

I always wondered why they allowed you to continue your crass remarks about your colonic emissions and yet they delete benign posts by Imposter. That's a glaring inconsistency there. Seems to me that they do target certain individuals for whatever arbitrary reason.
Of course they do Sybil, but the fact is, everybody farts. Wasn't that simple?

Psychologically, that's a tactic used by even terrorists. Bait your prey with kindness and then attack when their defenses are down.
People like this have no rhyme nor reason for their back and forth "one minute I'll be nice and the next I'll bite your head off" moods.
There are also medical terminologies for these personalities, if it's found that simple immaturity isn't the root cause..
Actually there are a couple which could fit:
BiPolar Disorder is one.. And of course there are people who could be
suffering from Antisocial Personality Disorder.
And don't forget psychopath.

The SERIAL BULLY... exhibits unusual and inappropriate attitudes to sexual matters, sexual behaviour and BODILY FUNCTIONS; underneath the charming exterior there are often suspicions or hints of sex discrimination and sexual harassment, perhaps also sexual dysfunction, sexual inadequacy, sexual perversion, sexual violence or sexual abuse

BINGO!

Well, I'm not sorry I missed it in all honesty. That kind of idiocy bores me half to death. It's a waste of eyesight and energy as far as I'm concerned.

But not taking any "sides" here, I've left discussion mid stream for many various reasons before. The phone might ring, the critters might need potty time, etc. I might get the urge to take a long hot bath, or even run the vacuum sweeper at midnight. With me, you never can tell what I do when the mood hits me to get up and do something productive... I'm retired, so I can do whatever I want to, whenever I want to do it. It's a good thing, hehe!! Anyway, my point is that life goes on as do the thread counts, hehe!

My laptop is also set on "Power Saver" mode. So if I walk away and it shuts down due to inactivity, many times I've lost the zeal for posting on whatever the particular subject might have been by the time I get back around to the laptop... So I simply close the lid and go about real life until the mood strikes again..

You sure do. You should have bought my thunder mug and you wouldn't have to take the time to stop posting your nonsense.

Mentally ill individuals can be quite intelligent. Many can be borderline geniuses, while oddly enough on the inside their psyche is in complete turmoil. Particularly if they are on medications and forget to take those meds regularly. Mental illness must be a very lonely disease. Unless of course someone is afflicted with a Multiple Personality Disorder. I'd assume in that case they have plenty of company, although it must get confusing at times..

You too. I'm off of here for a while myself. I have an ill critter and it's time for his meds. Nothing major going on, just a pesky recurring infection. Thank God for an understanding vet who's not greedy... I'd be sunk lately with all of these vet bills and my own health insurance co-pays.

Ooops, it's also time for everyone elses snacks.
(As the cat just reminded me, hehe. I SO love all of my critter kids)..

I don't kiss anyone's tush, never have never will, so no need to redeem myself. I admit I am a bully as I am generally mean to most everyone here except to the few (very few) that I like. I tend to believe there is more honesty in meanness, but not so much in politeness and political correctness.

Not today UNA. I have some older people (even older than me LOL) that are about out of firewood and the hydraulic splitter is ready and waiting for me to come get a little exercise. Have a good day.
A friend brought his electric 5 ton splitter over yesterday to help split up all my cut maple. My skeptical side was gone after a few minutes. The little bugger split up even the gnarly twisted peices with ease and we had two huge piles of split wood in a few hours. I'm sold on it and for 300 bucks,,, can't beat that with a hickory stick. I was getting a gas one this spring until this little electric chewed up all that wood so easily.
