I only come on this site once a week or so, a guilty pleasure I suppose. I've noticed a steady decline in activity here in the last year, used to be 80-100 viewing the site, now it's more like 15-30. I'm not upset by this, in fact I'm glad this site has jumped the shark. There are better ways to waste time.

Agree what a waste of time I am just as guilty as to hear the gossip

the problem is all the 12 year old trolls. if topix were to allow the person starting the discussion to designate it as only for registered users it could have some discussions for trolls and drive by commentators and some for verified adults.

I loved that Fonzie still wore his uber cool leather jacket when he jumped the shark. Classic!

I bet the 12 year olds don't have a clue what a Fonzie is.
I know him

Sadly, I'd guess the majority of the trolls are not 12 year olds, but rather adults that should know better....

Seeing average peoples real names on here is horrible.
It's hard to support a site that even "allows" that.
Just using it is supporting it.
Time to stop using it.
I think others have already stopped.

There is more good than bad on here and thats with everything in life. You cant change what others do, only what you do.

This site will not go away nor will it change, so just be on the positive side of things.

Yep your right, it's dead. This is the best thing that has happened to this town.

Next national headline in a major city (St. Louis is +50 largest city) google "topix and the zip code". As far as a forum w/ people talking about the headline nothing comes up. But topix is perfect for communities like ours!
