I am writing our Senators and Congress members, I am writing our leading law makers, I feel that this site should be shut down, once and for all. If you agree, contact them yourselves, for too long we have been victims of this cr@p, it is time it stops, I have no problem with free speach, but if you are going to speak freely, then it should have your name attached to it. And many of you will say, WELL you are not attaching your name, and that is CORRECT, so you see how it feels! But I will be working very hard to get this $h!+ site shut down once and for all, so you cowards will have to find another way to vent your stuff, about how you feel totally and completly small around real people who have a life, but may I suggest that if you get to the point when topix is gone that you cannot go on, then go to Laurel Lake, tie a rock around your neck, start walking off the boat ramp, when you get wet KEEP GOING, and soon, you and the rest of us will not have to worry about you anymore!

Boy don't you have a high opinion of yourself... Your going to get a Multi Million dollar corporation, that is based out of another state and spread through a system where there is no possible way to control individual state access, shut down... Well as I see it you have a problem getting some single individual around the area to be quite, and your gona do what to Topix? Give it your best shot bubba... Every party needs someone to laugh at ...

I actually agree with raptor on this. Except, i don't think the site should necessarily be removed, but i do believe the town and city forums should be removed. The national forums are plenty enough to cover any subject you want. Topix even has a forum for trolls and joke threads called offbeat, where i like to do most of my posting. If the town and city forum were removed, this would cut off people posting others real names and that sort of stuff. If someone has posted raptors real name, or a loved one of his real name, i don't blame him for being mad about it. Arguing back and forth at anonymous posters about subject matter differences is one thing, but posting someones real name and spreading lies about them is another. So i have to say raptor is right, if someone has done him this way, he has every right to take action, in my opinion. I don't believe that it would be that easy to get the site removed, as it is i believe out of California, but i will say they should have the city forums removed, and stick only to the global and national threads.

I don't think a city could petition the removal of the entire topix corportion?
A city could only speak on their citizens behalf . I would think that a city could file a personal appeal or law suit..... against a corporation to have their city removed from the topix selections ?

When using "legitimate" personal name/s to spread slander and / or lies..YES, it should be shut down! It happens EVERY DAY on this forum!
And it will catch up. Enjoy it while you can. Just watch, a lawsuit will be filed and this forum will become under scrutiny and eventually shut down. It will not be much longer....hide and watch!

Topix could easily control(censor) this website. They would then be a direct competitor to Facebook. People visit this site, because they can speak on any topic, at anytime without fear of being censored. What they say can be anonymous and is accessible from anywhere.

I don't get involved in the threads that pertain to a particular person, however, you should know that you CAN have these threads removed.

When we start censoring the internet(it will happen) the last bastion of free speech will be another media controlled outlet for political ideology.

Until then, why don't we just enjoy this freedom?

Well I'm all for Freedom of Speech and think anyone should speak their mind, But with that freedom comes responsibility for the use of that freedom... Thats why while I think the forum should remain intact and totally uncensored I think it should also require registration and identity verification. Because I'm of the view that if you wish to speak your mind you should be held responsible for doing so. If a person is not able to sign their name to their words then they should not speak those words. All other Rights noted in the Constitution have as a component the responsibility when those rights are engaged...

Well for starters, what makes you think the U.S Constitution has any bearing on global network such as the Internet?

Well for Starters Topix is a US Based and US Regulated on line service and as such the US Constitution and US Law has controlling authority over it whether it's users are inside the US Boarders or not.. But that's a non issue as as the comment only mentioned the Constitution as corollary to the concept of Rights where All Rights, those protected via the U.S. Constitution and those Protected under other countries constitutions and laws and those that are considered Inalienable, and Self Evident have as a component the personal responsibility for the engagement of those rights..
