Can someone please tell me if there is a number to call to request a hurtful forum to be deleted. I know everyone must realize how hurtful some of these topics are to families. I know you would agree it is just not necessary. Truthfully, that is not what topix was intended to do. Other areas don't seem as bad. It should be discussions that serve a purpose and never to hurt others. We live in a much better place than this represents at times. Thank you.

I do agree with you, this is a harrasment!
You can get on here and put anything about anyone you want. This needs to stop! Let's start a petition to have topix removed.

slandering someone is not free speech

No, it is not, however, stating the truth, even if it is embarressing or hurtful is not slander. I agree, some people have said some completly untrue things - they seem to get shut down rather quickly by those who know. There also seem to be a lot of people who just need to be more careful about how they live IF they're going to be offended when someone writes about it. My Grandma used to say "if you don't like the truth about yourself, change it." Easiest way to clean up Topix, or the community for that matter, is for each to clean up their own yard and worry a little less about their neighbors.

You are right I have to agree with your statment about cleaning out our own yards.I do however disagree about the slander issue.It is still not freedom of speech to get on the internet and post about someone regardless if it is true or not and it is still slander.

"Slander - A FALSE and malicious statement that damages the reputation or well being of another."
American Heritage Dictionary.
Although, since slander is spoken and libel is written this is more applicable.

"Libel - a written statement that UNJUSTLY damages the reputation of another." Same reference.

Please note that in both cases it is the Falseness of the statement that is at issue. I repeat that persons who don't want the truth about themselves published should probably live differntly. Or move to the city where they can live any way the wish with very little notice taken by anyone.
