I love the Gene Cooley topix story and how he held the person accountable for slander. You all should google it. Remember... It just takes getting a simple IP address to trace it back to your computer , get your name and address and sue. It's funny how so many people talk big on this site but they don't want their name known Etx. When your bashing someone, a place of busines, or anything else , it will come back to you. Cheers.

I read that Gene's case was the first case EVER done in the country and has been copied time and time again.

There should be more of these cases brought to clean up TOPIX.

There is nothing wrong with exchaning ideas but bashing folks and calling them vile names is NOT protected speech.

Use of TOPIX as a political forum is also no way to do business. Some on here abuse that idea.

You cannot police TOPIX to keep out nuts but that goes with any society. Just learn to live around them and move on.

Topix or any such site as this is by nature a political forum, as determined and defined by all who actively use it.

No one user opinion determines how the form is to be used. Only the forum itself will or will not make that determination and enforce it or not.

The individual user only makes a choice as to if, when, and to what extent you may participate.

On political issues, actions of public figures are normally acceptable fodder when focus is upon, official duty, voting records, fiscal responsibility, maleficence etc.; and yes character, moral infidelity and the like are considered reflections upon trust, confidence, and moral acceptability.

NOT acceptable are attacks upon ones family, religion, dog, and the like... UNLESS, they are an active participant in any schemes, shanigans, or other unacceptable practices of corruption.

If you want a political free site you'll have to create your own. And moderate it as you may see fit.

Sorry, but as the chillin now say "it is what it is."
