I have had posts deleted that did not violate any of the Terms of Service. I do realize that they reserve the right to delete anything, but that begs the question why they would target respectful posts?

I realize the post were on sensitive topics, but my post were very respectful though direct and accurate.

Do they have a rougue moderator asserting his or her own interest? Or perhaps targeting my ip because they disagree with my views?

I'm am going to start printing the forum to pdf after each post I make. Then I am going to forward them to Topix to ask why.

Was it the one about the two cheating cops? Guess they couldn't handle the truth.

Liberals are always whining to get posts other than their own deleted
No doubt they will get this one deleted too claiming its racist or something or other

takes some begging and pleading , after two years, tow the line and whoo hoo back in business, make sure your posts are not "off topix" or inappropriate , that is what i was told as to why my posts were being deleted.

Good Luck! Happy Hunting.

Are you saying you were kicked off topix and possibly your IP blocked from posting???? NO WAY!! I can't believe that because I've seen disgusting stuff and reported a few posts (registered and unregistered commenter) that were much worse than anything I ever saw you post.

I'm beginning to wonder since I read JamieWV's post. Certain words are caught by the topix filter and posts are automatically removed, but you'll usually get a red box warning. Also certain links will cause a post to go poof.

If you believe an injustice has taken place you might beg and plead your case. I'm not sure I'd beg, but I'd probably send topix my thoughts on justice and equality if I ever find myself barred and blocked and someone else is still allow to post.

i didn't literally beg or plead, however i did write to them on ocassion, and would post my comments but to no avail in them showing up on Beckley forum, so i would read the comments and wonder, what was going on. this post is not off topix or inappropriate.

LAMO - perhaps i do need help however.......... not from you. How would you know anyway? Do you know me? ROFLMAO :)

It's really funny. I can see one of the deleted posts now. Another poster had reposted mine to point out it was deleted and that there was no 1 Post Removed line in the topic.

Otherwise I might not have noticed that one.

I reposed the post with one word removed which I did not think would be a bad word : se_ual as in se_ual preference.

The other post that were deleted were on topics that delt with racism or comments about specific politicians.

I never use profanity. I never post links to copyrighted material or to profane sites. Changing my name does not help.(ip address I guess)

I know if it appears your comments is hate filled, they will delete it, or if they figure out you have made mean comments repeatedly about an individual.

And be very careful about what you say around some people.:-) If I reported and topix deleted everyone who'd ever called me a name or used my Id in a creative fashion (i.e.- "ickie" "icky" etc - there'd only be half as many people in the Beckley community) LOL

Just friendly advice - stay away from attorney general reporters-and perhaps those who claim they don't remember you.
