YEAP!!, ALTHOUGH I HAVE REGISTERED AND CAN POST A COMMENT WHEN READY... I JUST HAVEN'T. I NOTICE ALOT OF OTHERS HAVEN'T AND PROBABLY WON'T.
THANKS TO NUMEROUS CRY BABIES... WLTX IS GETTING WHAT THEY DESERVE...(A MORTUARY FORUM) LMAOOOO.
WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, AND ONE OF THOSE LOST KIDS REAR THEIR UGLY HEAD... I WILL POST, BUT HEY... I'VE BEEN ENJOYING MANY OTHER THINGS AS OF LATE.
SO, FOR ALL THOSE NERDS THAT WENT CRYING TO WLTX ABOUT THE "REAL PEOPLE"... AND THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE... ENJOY YOUR FORUM, I'LL PAY MY RESPECTS NOW AND THEN, ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. "R.I.P. WLTX".

I don't appreciate any forum that encourages/allows hatred and actual threats on people's lives to continue unabated. WLTX has allowed a particular comment suggesting suicide: do they know that there is a lawsuit going on because of this very type of thing? A girl committed suicide because of what happened on a forum, and now when a poster gives explicit directions on how to commit suicide and suggests that that person commit suicide, and that post is NOT removed by WLTX, no, I don't like the new WLTX.

It's not the fact that it allows hatred it is just another person's point of view. Any public forum should not be all peaches and cream where everyone just has nice things to say about a particular subject. Everyone has a point of view that's will not be like yours but it should be respected. As of the suicide suggestions those post can be removed by WLTX or TOPIX. How can people learn if you monopolize a forum so only positive comments can be made?
Oh I really really dislike the new forum but I am registered.
And that's another thing why does someone have to register ---- what's the deal with that???

Yes, I also hate the NEW WLTX. It was all so simple, "back in the day" to post a comment.

...and ANOTHER THING, the NEW WLTX just has TOO many different articles going on. It looks jumbled and really messy now. And where's the news team. Should'nt the WLTX NEWS TEAM be on the home page? But then again, they COULD be, but with all those jumbled ads, and so forth, I can't tell! Who came up with this mess, a second grader?!!

I like the new forum but I wish it was faster...Finally, all of the behind-the-scenes posters will have to register. Clean out some of the junk...

The server responses do leave a lot to be desired. They are too slow to keep my attention very long.

I was wishing the best for the new WLTX site but I don't like it as much as Topix.
Topix is very user friendly. You can go to recent comments page and at a quick glance see where your friends are posting and see which are the popular topics of the day. You also can see at a quick glance when people reply to your comment. I don't care about all of the My Space features.
I understand the principle behind the "login" feature but it prevents one of the best things about Topix. One of the best things about a comments section is that a lot of times people with inside information will pass it along and clear up errors on the news article. With the new "login" feature I feel they are not going to go through the trouble just to make a couple of comments.
I have noticed there are very few comments at the new WLTX site. It has turned into a graveyard. As far as the racial junk is concerned I usually ignore it. If nobody responds to the racial comment the Troll usually gets bored and goes away. This accomplishes more than responding and creating 100 posts of garbage.
WLTX could have added the Forum & Blog section without losing Topix.

It's called advertisements, and "somebody got to pay the bills", just like the TV stations and those nagging Lawyers (rules FOX), Ashley Furniture (like people can afford to make purchases these days), Pay Day Loan (like people are really making money these days), Car Dealerships (like people can afford to make purchases these days), Churches/Bojangles Fried Chicken (aim at the black communities 90% of their commecials are done by a black) commercials... to name a few.

Oh, one more thing I noticed about WLTX... now keep in mind PEOPLE, discrimination is not only about race... it about a certain act (actions)...I notice that they have many options over on the "new ESTW"... they give you the font options, options to post pictures, and many other options. Why are those options not available to the GENERAL PUBLIC, Lmaooooo.

All this could have some leverage... but the one important thing I do like about it is, there can be no more perputraters... no one can make a post/comment under the name you have already registered under.

Hey now, fried chicken ain't just for black people. I LOVE ME SOME BOJANGLES!!! I could eat there everyday. Hmmmmmm. I'm hungry now. Anyway, the forums are the place where you can post pics and change your font style and size and color. It is open to everyone. Hope you have a good day Justice. Stay cool

Justice,
Those features are not specifically for ESTW posters. They are FORUM features. If you are registered in WLTX you can make a comment in any Forum and have access to those features. You can even create your own Forum.

Hey there BANDIT, I didn't say it was "just" for blacks... the exact wods was "aim at the black communities", to early for chicken and I prefer mine baked. I understand the forum (aka ESTW) is for everyone, but I think you can agree that only a select few visit that forum.

My point is... why are those options NOT available to the rest of the forum/topics. The weather is finally breaking 93-94 today? whooooopee!!, you also have a great day/weekend.
