Topix COULD be beneficial, such as exposing corrupted elected officials and/or public figures, but it has stooped to allowing attacks on ordinary people. It does not matter who gets libeled. I have noticed several of the elected officials' threads get removed a.s.a.p. You ask the Topix "crew" to remove a libelous thread on an ordinary citizen, it doesn't get done. Topix is the equivalent of the National Enquirer. I hope more people sue them, and don't fall for the lie you can't. If this site libels you, take them to the cleaners!

Not liberty to lie. That's against the law. Not liberty to use the forum to bully. That's against the law. Not liberty to discuss minors. That's against the law. Not liberty to cause a suicide or a homicide. That's against the law. The above mentioned are nothing but trouble making thugs, but karma is a b!tch for them too. They are not exempt. I don't know how they sleep at night. The least they could do is HIRE a moderator. Many have sued and have won but that doesn't bring back a loved one.

I come here when someone asks me to look at some of the gossip on this site, and most of it is gossip. As soon as I see the headlines, such as 'hairy butt holes', 'gays at Bob Amos park', 'fart while having sex', no one has to explain to me that this site is nothing more than trash. It is a perverted site and anyone, including myself, should be ashamed to even glance at it. I don't do it often. I will now vomit. Sue is correct. One can sue.

Sue you should change your name to Babbling brooke. Someone can sue the person that made a post, not the site or the corporate officers. Your attorney or the court can subpoena topix for a posters info only. Maybe you should read recent rulings of the scotus before posting as well as the terms of service for this site.

By the way are you aware with this post of yours you violated topixs term of service, as well as federal and state laws and code.

Your feeble attempt to clean someone elses backporch would be better served on your own.

Really? I'll take my chances. Don't try to keep people ignorant with your misinformation. People can sue anyone if they can prove they have been slandered or libeled, in this case and this site it would be considered libeled. People have sued Topix and WON. One of course would have to get a decent attorney and you're sure not one. Keep posting your lies and see where it may get you. And the key word in all of this is "if." IF one has been abused by this site, and from what I am hearing, plenty have been. Everyone has been printing......

Let me get this straight. It's okay to have 'liberty' to post anything I want on here. I can say someone is having an affair when they're not. I can post someone is gay when they're not. And everyone thinks it's okay. NOT! Not anyone with any morals. Don't get me wrong. I wholeheartedly realize this is far from being a moral site. It's not even considered a newsworthy site anymore. Everything is a lie. And Topix and their moderators (or lack of) IS responsible for the damage they have caused to many reputations. In my case, since what I am posting is the TRUTH, I have liberty to post this comment. They want to keep people ignorant of their rights. Why can the people who run Topix get away with their crimes? They can't by law. It's Freedom of Speech, not Freedom to Libel. And I do not have a 'backporch' to clean. I hate it for so many, many good, decent people whose reputation have been tarnished due to this wicked site. Anyone who feels differently should really think hard what they're condoning here. I hate using cliches, but what goes around truly comes back around.

Topix will only remove something if the name of a common citizen is mentioned, but that's after all of the viewers have seen it and have spread it all over the state. Pretty useless! Topix should be required by law to moderate their site. Bottomline!
