I "found" this on another website. It fits in pretty much "perfectly" with what I have been trying to say. Changing the name to protect the poster.
At times, I totally enjoy your website, there is nothing more enjoyable and relaxing then a good clean, lighthearted, conversation with like minded, mature commenters. Other times, I want to rip out a trolls eyes and spit in Chris Tolleís face, for making my life a living hell.[mine is NOT or I wouldn't be HERE-AL]
Iíll gladly take some of the blame for my times of discontent on topix, after all, no one forces me to visit topix.com
. But let me tell you a short, non-fiction story about topix hell in small town U.S.A....
Most people donít have to, and shouldn't post their real names on topix, but that doesn't stop someone else from putting you in the limelight. And once you are there, itís hard to get out of it. In a small town, where ĺ of the population is family and lifelong friends, being in the limelight on topix can be very devastating and damaging.
In my case, my personal troll(s) have taken it to extremes. And I totally agree with Miss Virginia Hoge, NEVER give in to bullies. By giving in, you are empowering them and therefore, IMO, contributing to the bullying.
I wont go into detail about what is being said daily about me on topix, it is the epitome of defamation, and is in no way, protected free speech. Itís bad enough that I have to read this about myself on a public forum, viewable worldwide, but how about the communityís children that reads this overly explicit garbage?
How can it be justified that children are being corrupted and their minds poisoned against their family, friends and neighbors when there are no knowledgeable adults attempting to deter it, or protect them from it?
There aren't that many parents even aware of topix.com
. Oft times, they (the children) are introduced to the website by a friend or a classmate, and by the time their parents are aware of their childís topix activity, the damage is already done.
I can go on, and on about this but let me just cut to the chase. I can think of many ways of protecting many, many innocent victims of topix defamation by making minor changes to itís policies and/or TOS, that probably wouldn't effect ďhitsĒ or the popularity of said website. My question is, why isn't topix.com
making any effort at all, in cleaning up itís act?
I sure wouldn't want to see this spiral any further out of control and risk losing the privilege of enjoying the enjoyable aspects of topix, when the government has no choice but to shut it down.
save yourself :)
