After reading several discussions, there were many persons questioning putting persons names, and data on here to identify the "victim" of the day. The arrest discussion , mentioned the rules of a forum several times..also several other personal stories with details on here were so unnecessary and fueled by personal vengence, I need to know the rules of this forum, as I like to discuss politics alot and mining issues.

Unfortunately, some people use this forum as a tool for vengence. A good example is the thread about the school teacher and her "so called" sexual exploits.

As for those who get arrested, this is "news." Those who find themselves in this situation find their names in local newspapers and sometimes on local tv. Forum writers who give the names of those arrested have every right to do so...it is information that is available to the public. As for the coaches, they willingly put themselves in the position of possible ridicule...just like politicians. Those who put themselves in the public eye also put a bullseye on their own backs, whether they deserve denunciation or not.

Wow, Topix has never asked me to agree to any terms of service. In fact, I have never "joined". It just lets me post. That being said, apparently there are no rules.
And apparently, people don't realize their identities can still be found through their ISP address, and they can be sued for slander.

Obviously you need to read (below the box you are commenting in) where it says:Please note by clicking on "Post Comment" you acknowledge that you have read the Terms of Service and the comment you are posting is in compliance with such terms.

"AINT" that what it says?...The terms of service ARE the "rules."

Yes, you're right, I see it now. But those words are so small and put down below like an afterthought, no wonder I never noticed.
