not really. you would need to obtain an IP address first. if you could do that, you stand a much better chance of finding what youre looking for. but considering that anyone using a proxy could show a bogus IP, and internet security is ever evolving. My suggestion is to let it go. the odds are not in your favor. But, if you cant, there are a number of tools and utilities that you can obtain for free to help you with your challenge. invite whoever is posting about you to send you an email to email address. that is an easy way to get thier IP. Then you can back track your way to them.

You have to go to the county attorney and if you can prove slander than you can get a warrant/ subpoena and topix has to release the information of the IP address. They can give name and address. But again this requires court order and it is stated in the disclosure statement on topix that your information can be released it under court order.

and no judge is going to waste their time giving a court order for slander. even if you have been raped or murdered, its a slim possibility. i was trying to google this one day and i think i found one case ever (in texas) that a court order was actually granted for. i wonder how much topix could make if they suddenly offered to reveal the author of any post for $1000.00?? it would suddenly be the richest company in the world!

Go to a website that will allow you to look up IP address information. Google "IP Lookup" or "IP Geolcation" for a large list of sites that will freely offer this service.

I say if you have to worry about it, then you must have a guilty conscience about something. Most mature people overlook things being said on sites like this. If you know something isn't true, then don't worry about it. Your opinion is all that matters, right?

You can not glean any info from the IP#.
Besides, why do you care what people say? You will never stop people from speaking their mind.

What if it was posted from a work computer? How would an IP address help? What if it was posted from a Library computer? What if it was posted from a Smartphone?

It is not illegal to post whatever we feel like.
The IP offers nothing.
This site is for us to emote our opinions.
Like gossip. Except online.

Topix welcomes all reports. Anytime your privacy is being invaded, you are stalked, haressed, bullied, or vulgar language applied, hit that dumbazz button. Report the abuse. Follow the instructions. Topix will investagate and send warnings out to the guilty parties. I know this for a fact. Topix goes by IP addresses, not names.
Have a good night..........
