Could a topix moderator please come to this site. Those wanting to actually discuss items relating to the city and nation always have our threads hijacked by one or 2 people.

This could perhaps help. I believe that Sher01247, Wondering1, Voix and chbpod would be in agreement

Lets create our own Good Ole Boy network. Only allow in who we want in. Get a Topix moderator to enforce this.

Do away with free speech.

Our little cliche on North Adams Topix. Not open to the public but who we say is in our little group.

How quaint.

Thanks for the endorsement. We can do this but need the Topix Moderators help.

That way when one of these stupid threads get posted it can be gone in 5 minutes.

GOB all I would like is the personal attacks to stop and actually discuss issues.

So do we let Praxis33 in our little group to hijack Topix? Obviously we keep Heller out of it.

We must decide who to keep in and who to keep out.

Anyone who irritates any one of "US" is out.

Yes Censorship, that is the answer. Lets also ban all pornography, cigarettes, alcohol and drugs.

Together we can clean up the riff raff of this world.

Excellent Ideas man.

Anyone can post what they want. But we need a moderator to quickly get rid of the "who is this posting" posts. And you know who I am talking about (2 main offenders).

Eventually they will get bored and leave.

I wish there was a rule against posting contest rules on every thread. Keep it to it's own thread. The pervert that talks about incest should be blocked or all his posts deleted right away. Nasty crap. Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing, but there has to be limits.

You can create your own discussion web-site. Just register your domain name and buy some servers and YOU can be the moderator.

Invite all your friends on here, there. Better that trying to hijack North Adams Topix.com

Then you control who can say or what is said.

Good luck with that.

I've suggested that Topix allow posters to choose whether the threads they create is "open" (old style) or "closed" (only allows replies from registered users) but I never heard back.

There would still be idiots posting under false pretenses but it would be a juggling act. Most importantly, a registered handle leaves an easier to follow trail in case of threats or serious libel.

Glenn Heller has always started topix discussions to discuss - topix of interest.

Solons used to entertain these subjects and discuss his side.

He was attacked by trolls. Points of view went along on political views. Heller's points of view were not popular.

Solons himself went on the attack against Heller and it got personal. People started taking sides.

Now, one side wants to band together and ban anything said that "they" don't agree with. Have a topix moderator on their side.

True dat, trolls are a problem. However, they have a right to free speech just like anyone else.

Praxis33's name is registered.

If what you say is true then there would be no need of a photo contest. Heller would simply be able get the information he seeks.

Whether Praxis33 is guilty of libel would be up to a judge. He says he not, Heller says he is.

The one good thing about topix is that you don't have to register like most other sites. Even the Berkshire Eagle or Planet Valenti requires an email address to post.

Start your own web-site and you can make the rules.

What do the incest comments do to improve discussions? It may be freedom of speech, but so isn't yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Yes, yes, yes. Lets make everyone register. A moderator can remove any offensive comments. Yes, yes, yes.

Let's sterilize topix.

No better way to ruin this site that I can think of.
Good way to shut it down.

While we are at it, lets shut down Rush Limbaugh also. Glenn Beck and Fox news too.

We should only have on the airways, shows that promote Democratic viewpoints.

Good thing Howard Stern is off of public radio isn't it?

Its important censor free speech.

Heller CAN get the information he seeks. The problem is that he has NO LEGAL STANDING to receive it.

When asked to point to a threatening or libelous post by Praxis33, Heller doesn't respond. He's a lunatic stalker. Period.

Well, there's always FB. We could create a site and that way, everyone knows everyone else or not.

Just an idea but then Clark doesn't FB and cil does!
