For the good of our community and pure common decency, please refrain from attacking people personally. If you have facts that is one thing, but to pertetuate rumors and make false accusations is not only morally wrong, it is destructive to our county.

I must agree here.

This new media we have in the internet can cause revolutionary change in the structure of political campaigns in this country. It should not be abused nor abased.

But, it is not just those who feel a power to attack and debase those who are running for public office. It must apply to the candidates themselves. They must not allow themselves to be baited by every malcontent with a keyboard and an internet connection. That can reflect negatively on them. My advice is to rise above it.

They should use this opportunity to convey their beliefs, their vision, their plan and their hope for the future of our town. Ignore the negative and keep expressing their beliefs through it all. They will appear and be stronger for it.

Not all will be purely commonly decent as I am sure their parents instructed them to be. That is to be expected.

And because, in local elections, I am rabidly apolitical I wish to thank all of those who are running for election and reelection to our government. It will be four years of hard work, four years of little pay and less respect,and worse, four years of being little more than a pinata hung to the ceiling of the council room to be beaten with sticks until you have given all the candy you can. Then tossed aside for not giving near enough candy for our effort.

Such is Life

First of all I would like to know of a forum were flaming trolls do not hang out at. I have vististed surrounding counties community boards as well as ones from out of state and trust me our board is sounds pretty much like everyone elses.

Second of all the News Examiner Does not own or run this forum.

Besides if this forum was closed yahoo, myspace, msn and the list goes on and on will be more than happy to let any of us set up on their boards.

Having just found this 'forum', I just hope serious outsiders overlook it. It has the same stench as the constant negativity of our local community.

After reading my post I guess I came off a bit negatively. I just know that the more you tell be to watch what they post the worse it gets. But most of the commuinty boards I have been to well all of them have a majority of complainers so its nothing new.

Most of the people on forums who make personal attacts would never have the guts to face the person and say the things they do. For the most part, I overlook these bozos.

The reference was made to the column in the paper that was removed due to trash talk like we see here at times. There are no arguements againist facts but he rumors and slanders need to cease.

I think it was good that the news examiner got rid of their forum because they were in control of picking whose post was posted at least here we all have a voice and we have the power to pick and choose what we want to read. Sometimes its Ideal but at least its not usually onesided?

Actually you weren't wanting to know what happened in Connersville you were wanting to know who got busted and frankly if you don't live here it's none of your business like you were told in the response.. Just saying and no I won't tell you.. You wanna know buy a paper, read over half the false b.s. on here and you might get a clue.

Thank you! She was bashing this town on the other thread. If you hate this town so much then why are you on here trying to get information? And since you don't live here and don't care it's none of your business what goes on here.
Duh

Grow up people. Topix is 4 bashers & very little, if anything that is posted can be believed. If U think Cville's topix is bad, go to Liberty's. It is completely viscious & slanderous. It's so ridiculous, it's humorous (if the post is not about U, lol).

Did you ever think that maybe she lives too far away to buy our paper? From what I have read she tried to explain that to you. All you had to do was answer her question but instead you show how inbred we are by being rude and making personal attacks against her. We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We have sunk to an all time low when we can't be polite to a former resident of this stupid town.
