I guess when you start banning everyone who likes discussing your topics, you end up with no one discussing your topics.
And those that are left discuss what interest them.

There's a lesson here people.

An alternative perspective might be that people being banned have violated the boards rules. The fact that people who argue an opposing perspective from yours are more commonly banned than people who you agree with may say more about the banned group than anything else. Another issue could be a limited number who argue an opposing issue yet have multiple Logins. Many of the Liberal comments we see on the Columbus board currently are apparently provided by one user with numerous Logins!
Are you Jim Pickens? You both post alot of the same stuff.

I think ol zipper was referring to Will Dockery, lots of us students gave him a hard time cause he got a friend of ours banned who had made a parody character of him. In getting her banned they blocked the entire dorm wifi IP so no one can post anything unless we walk to Columbus Coffee shop. No more discussions about CSU, the Whitewater project and the Columbus music scene, etc.
He ( Will Dockery)used to saturate this board with his suckie music videos and complain to the moderators when ever he got a bad review (always).
So its really no political on this issue, its just about bad music.

Exactly right CSU. Wilhelmina is a comedic creative genius, that's why I love her so much.
No harm was done, anyone could see plainly that it wasn't the real Will Dockery, just a knock off that was making fun and it was simply HILARIOUS.
From what I understand he complained incessantly to the mods and they caved, resorting to banning the entire CSU WIFI.
Maybe enough people complained about his incessant posting of his lame music and "open mic nights" and he got banned, that would be, dare I say "poetic" justice.
It is truly a royal pain to have to go find a free WIFI spot to post on Topix, that's why not to many do anymore.
We could have been posting about the new music festivals and all the happenings around the opening of the Columbus whitewater.

No, the "terms of Service" at Topix.coom are clearly stated with each post anyone here makes, and basically, it seems if you keep your posts within those guidelines your posts should be no problem:

"...Please note by clicking on "Post Comment" you acknowledge that you have read the Terms of Service and the comment you are posting is in compliance with such terms. Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator."

Seems simple enough to comprehend... Even for you, maybe?

I’m not aware of this sites policy about blocking people yet, from your comments,“Will Dockery” may have become too much of a burden for the support people. As for me, I have only one Login!“Jim Pickens” and I must have similar opinions on issues.
No, David, as you probably know, Topix.com is open to wide ranges of opinions, the problem comes when the anonymous, unregistered posters begin making personal attacks, forgery, libel and so on that the Topix.com moderators specifically state is a no-no here:

"Please note by clicking on "Post Comment" you acknowledge that you have read the Terms of Service and the comment you are posting is in compliance with such terms. Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator..."

And you didn't seem to actually be Jim to me, since as any literate person can see the difference in your writing styles... But that counts out most of the Trolls posting on this thread.

That sound like you have some grammar and punctuation issues, then?

Although grammar and punctuation are commonly thought to be separate parts, punctuation is actually an integral part of grammar .

This message board has quieted down alot lately.
Still seems to be alot of out of state trolls picking fights over politics though.

Well, either together or seperately, you obviously need to bone up on 'em.

Just sayin'.

I don't think you should anger the frat boys and sorority girls, you remember Dean Wormer in Animal House?

I haven't had near the time as I once did to comment and post news articles.
Hopefully I will be able to spend more time on here as the summer gets closer.
Its great to get everyone's input on the varied subjects discussed here.

Oh, there's no reason for anyone to be angry, now is there?

What? I'm just a music lover!

I get on Topix at least 3-4 times a week. You've been gone also.

Well, you're a music lover, perhaps, but your ongoing predjudice against our many talented local performers is very obvious.

Hey, to each his own, but when you start trying to drag our local names through the mud I hope to be here to correct you and your ilk with your blatant falsehoods, Panther.

By the way, did we see each other at Doo-Nanny this year?

After all, you know who I am since I'm never anonymous so only one of us could know... It was a good one, wasn't it, well worth the measly ten bucks, right?

Exactly, David.

Those who wind up "banned" from the Forums probably simply ignored the Topix.com Terms of Service, which frowns upon lies, libel, slander and other obviously poor posting habits.
