Old Madison is nothing but censorship. You're forbidden to type the word topix over there because they don't want you to know there's a forum where you won't be censored. JB is garbage and one of the biggest problems in this town.

You can't type anyting that the owner doesnt like. And he doesnt like anything that disagrees with his point of view. Apparently he has a 'history' with certain government bodies, lol.

he has a history all right. a history of sticking it to lying cheating coverup local elected officials and lacking government employees. he loves to catch them in lies and catches them not doing what is right or promised to the taxpayers. is that a bad thing?

you can't type anything you want at whitehouse.gov either. think about it.

i could go to oldmadison.com/thall and type about my great aunts corns or how excellent her pumpkin pie is and it would get deleted yes. stay on topic is all. not so hard to do for a thinker.

Don't want to hear about corn, but if you voice your opinion over the wrong candidate, you're out of there. Complaint with a local business JB is buddy-buddy with, you're out of there. Not at all unbiased. You can't really get informed by reading that garbage, you're only allowed to be swayed to their side, not make up your own mind.

Want to know a really funny thing. You can not use the word God on his site. It will show up as three stars for each letter in your comment. BUT if you talk about the devil it is ok. I mentioned on his site about someone not believing in God and that they were tbe devil. The owner of the site came back and stated that religious views were not to be discussed and that was why the word God was sensored. I replied that i thought it was odd that he would sensor the word God but not the devil. Never got an answer but i sure got my comments deleted quickly.

Im probably blocked after all that. But i never got back on there to see. He's the owner, he can do what he wants, but im not interested anymore. I kinda lost interest as well when the mayors election was taking pkace. There seemed to be alot of slanderous talk on there about one of the candidates. Did seem right to me cause it was all purposely being done to hurt someone and im sure it hurt their family.

Burleson doesn't delete just offensive material. He deletes all that doesn't tow his line. He and that forum are a disgrace to Madison and are the single most negative entity our City has. I am embarrassed that his site comes up in google and people who don't know Madison see that. That businesses are actually advertising on that site is unbelievable.

I remember those comments and they were by (IIRC) Fred Shimfissle(sp)and he was talking about the current mayor who was up for reelection. Pretty bad and nasty stuff for sure. If I was the mayor I would of had to sued the poster. the site operator there just like here on Topix is not responsible for what you or I say, original the poster is.

I would say the sewage plant is. The website does do a lot of good and reveals the truth about some of the officials in government that are corrupt or inept. Maybe that is why you despise it so much? I see that as a good thing and who the hell wants to argue about religious convictions anyway? Glad religion is not a topic.

Oldmadison.com is a biased forum. I have been on that site numerous times, gave my opinion about topics that were current being discussed and because I didn't agree with JB I was deleted. JB also responded to my comments about being deleted and had the gall to tell me that if I didn't agree with his point of views I wasn't welcome on his site. That is unbiased and good for the community? I THINK NOT!!! JB can jump off a cliff, Madison would be better without him and his one sided forum.

I believe all media is biased on some level. It's up to the readers to never get all your info from one source and to not believe everything you read.
