Yes but your posts do not ask for topix to require registration before posting... If you would have I would agreed 100%... I have called for registration of all the posting on topix... But it's Not Topix that cause idiots to post personal attacks and abuse the system... It's The People that do it... It's the People that do it that are responsible.... It's the mindset that allows so many people to take no personal responsibility for their actions that is the Cause...<quoted text>I agree with most of what you said.
However, there are strict gun laws that at least try to keep the harmful guns out of the hands of kids and people with criminal histories. Walk into any gun store today and buy a pistol, and after the two or three hours of paperwork and waiting on approval, tell me how easy it is.
Topix does not do that. They make it very easy for anyone, incluidng 10 year olds, and career criminals, to post very dangerous stuff. Think about if your mom's name showed up on here and said she was cheating on your dad? Or vice versa. Or think about if your young child's name showed up on here as being gay and the problems it would cause him/her in school.
So yes, Topix is responsible. They either need to do a better job of moderating these boards, or have rules and follow those rules that do not allow rumors like people who are rats, or people who have aids, or women cheating on hushands or husbands cheating on wives. That is very, very dangerous stuff that is posted on every Topix site around.
And I fully disagree with you that in other parts of the US Topix sites are used for the right reasons and you don't see personal attacks. I'd love to see one of these if you can find it. But I'm on a minimum of 10 Topix boards daily and they are all full of harmful rumors and trash.
Topix is getting rich off of other's pain and suffering. And it's never more evident than in Knox Co. where there are tons of lies and very harmful information posted daily. Topix has given the people of Knox Co. a place to make themselves look completely stupid, and posters are doing a great job of it.
If there were No Gun Laws what so ever there would still be Personal responsibility for their usage... That guy that uses one would be shot by police or others for it's usage... Because the Gun would not be the one held responsible, he would...
But Here you post, you use an Anon Server, you do not register and you complain about the system that You are guilty of doing what causes the problem in the first place... You could have Reg'ed your ID, You could have Identified yourself and took responsibility for the words you post... At the same time you support Topix by posting on it complaining about people posting on it...
