Here is the link to write Topix and complain about the abuse that goes on here day after day! The last few I read that went too far was mentioning shooting people "between the eyes" or "shooting them in the head." If you've also had enough and are sick of people's names being mentioned, families with children being gossiped about, wrong information about accidents and people's illnesses and injuries (personal information), names of alleged drug dealers, and well, sick of people who can't use Topix for what it was intended for, write to Topix and complain. When you are on a specific post that is bad, copy the information that shows up in the address bar at the top of your screen. Click on it to highlight then right click, click on "copy" then go to the message in the email and paste it there. They need to see specific posts to know what you are talking about. If your not sure how to do it, just ask someone to help you and do it for you. This has got to stop, NOW!

Listen, any jerk can get on here and post that someone is a "drug dealer" just out of spite, jealousy, meaness, revenge, whatever. I also want drug dealers dealt gone, but is everyone that is named one on Topix guilty? Some of these people who are falsly accused may have school age children who would suffer. Again, "Freedom of Speech" doesn't mean you can get on here and say someone needs a bullit between their eyes, sorry! People like you take parts of the Constitution out of context and make it some screwed up version straight out of your screwed up mind. The owners of this website have made it clear what is acceptable and not acceptable. That is their right so forget your lame "Freedom of Speech" argument.

So would you want people on here slandering your name? I don't think so. Thats all people ever do on here. And I will be contacting Topix. They should just shut it down although they never will.

I'd bet everything I own that 98% of you have never read the terms of service for Topix forums. I know for a fact that you, "agree", have no real clue what the Topix site is for if you think it's a place to "voice our opinions". It's a site to discuss local, national and international news. If you were to peek into other Topix locations you would see that normal people don't use Topix as a message board and they sure as hell don't use it to get revenge, slander, discuss extreme sexual issues....People outside of the Columbia area use Topix OCCASIONALLY to debate and learn issues that affect all the world. As for getting posts and discussions removed, they will do so only if they are requested to and that means someone has to bring the offensive material to their attention. Monitors? HA! Topix has told me themselves that they are unable to monitor the 100's of 1000's of posts entered each day around the nation. So, I agree with "had enough". We have to call, email, and write...do it often. I have and I will continue. I'd like to see Topix removed from this and other areas where majorities can't/won't use it properly.
The first amendment is great but there are guidelines and the Topix site has them in their terms of service. I've said this before....Check outside of this area and see how the average person speaks and conducts themselves. Look at the titles on the entire Columbia page right now. Is this the representation of the degree of education and character of Columbia residents? Wonderful!

And the way to do this is to publicize real names regardless of whether the accusation is true or just words of a jilted lover? Are you going to be the one who regulates what is acceptable and what is not? Shooting discussions="no". Naming drug dealers="okay". Is it in your children's best interest to learn from any of the discussions now on the Columbia Topix page? Are they interested to know who has the biggest dick or who men should be giving head to? Trouble with free speech is that you can't pick and choose what is said like you would have us believe. If you really want to take back our town go to the sheriff's office or the KSP and tell them you want something done. Write state reps if you don't believe our law enforcement is doing it's job. The best way to take a stand is to take action and not by gossiping on this forum.

Amen! Thanks for supporting my cause! I hope to keep this topic close to the top so more people can get the direct link to complain. Remember people, you HAVE to send Topix a direct link to a specific topic that is offensive and out of line. You have to be specific, or they can't do anything about the problem.

Sassy, you are 100% correct that Columbia's Topix page is sick and disgraceful compared to other town's and cities pages. I have searched around the site, and have yet to find another one as sick as Columbia Topix.

Thank you, John. You can use the link I provided, or use the phone number someone else posted. It's good to see other citizens of Columbia who are as fed up with this site as I am. I don't know Jennifer H. personally, but that doesn't matter. I read the post about someone shooting her in the head, and the crap on here has got to stop, NOW.

This site makes our community look like a bunch of idiots. It is destroying lives and creating nothing but problems. I wish it would simply vanish.

AMEN, agreed! The last email I sent (I used the link above) I included a direct link to about 8 topics that used a person's name as the title. Incidently, posting someone's name is a violation of Topix "Terms of Service." There are many more, but that's just a start. I opened up the topic and copied and pasted the address that showed up in the browser bar at the top of the screen. If enough people do this, I know something will be done by Topix. If you see the name of someone you know, let them know and you or they can send a complaint.

It takes me a while....I only read certain threads and the one about our County Attorney wasn't one of them. I was curious to this "bullet to the head" conversation and what do you know....?
"agree", you have really outdone yourself on the forum :

I agree totally with you. She will meet her match one of these days, someone who dont care to put a bullit straight through her nappy blond head. She will get everything that is coming to her, and I hope I am around to see it. And no it has nothing to do with me or my family being in legal trouble. I just dont like the fake bitch or her fake ass husband.

Is this what you refer to as "your right to your opinion"? I encourage our government official to follow up on this as a threat and then you may learn to what extent our freedom of speech is intended to be used.

The truth is anyone can get on Topix and spread rumors and Makeup lies on anyone. You say that you are glad people names the drug dealers in this town. Well what if someone put your name on there just out of spite. You can not believe everything you read on these forums..the most of it is madeup garbage.
