Why local Topix is losing interest for many.

Topix now has many fewer posters and, obviously fewer readers, than in the past. It has grown stale and uninteresting for many reasons. I will list a few of the reasons for this drastic decline.
1. Any topic that is controversial, whether it is true or not, is quickly removed--unlike before.
2. Several old boring threads, most several years old, dominate the top of the page day after day, causing readers to have to "wade-through" this nonsense to look for interesting threads.
3. Many of the more interesting, thoughtful posters have thus "given-up" and left Topix.
4. Several of the remaining posters continually start posts about "crazy and/or ignorant subjects", of which readers care very little. For example, who needs a topic called "far#s" or "busting pimples"?
5. Topix was never close to perfect to begin with, but at one point, there were some decent discussions taking place on here. Not anymore...if you have been a Topix reader for awhile, I bet you have also noticed the difference...a difference for the worst.

I still check form time to time for something w/ substance, other than Drugs, my girlfriend/boyfriend did something, what do you think about someone (gossip) etc...

I wish some people could wake up & learn whats going on with within our country that has to do with everyones welfare, even those on entitlement programs.

Sad to say, don't think it will happen, can hope.

I know some will not even read anything that is conservatism, but if you don't research & READ how do you know if its wrong.

Education: Read about Common Core, http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/03/14/is...

This also applies to ever aspect in all our lives, such as health care, has anyone been ask by your dr. if you own a gun, I have & it is none of their business, anyway read up on Common Core, CSCOPE.

"The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life," Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin on Monday. "That's going to be very, very powerful," Waters said. "That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They're going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can't get around it. And he's [President Obama] been very smart. It's very powerful what he's leaving in place."

We can try to educate, but until welfare/entitlement programs are cut back or all of the sudden there is not money, I feel like we are facing a loosing battle.

You can thank The Specialist for a lot of disinterest. He would use so many fake names, lure someone into a conversation only to use it to rebuke and belittle the other posters. Now that he has heat on him for the AC/DC reply on the house fire topix, he has taken to using Merlin the Wizard as a new name to do his stupid stuff thinking no one would find him out. If you have noticed a lot of his names don't appear on here anymore since the House Fire Topix incident.
