I am sick of seeing subjects about people with their whole name being used, written by "anonymous" people just looking to start trouble. If you have beef with someone say it to their face. This is the lowest form of cowardice, and it's sad. Some fantastic people have had their names dragged through mud, some people were more then deserving. But still these are people, I thought the point of topix was to get mutual people together to improve towns, advertise businesses, meet new friends not be pigs anonymously. If you have crap to say about someone use your real name, stop hiding.

it is indeed saddening and a disturbing reflection of human nature. you are right, Topix could be an engine for good -- for sharing, for learning, for networking.

Alas, the coward worms abuse the forum to slander individuals by name to such a degree that mahy decent people seldom utilize the forum.

Topix has a well deserved reputation as being primariy a gutter place for gutter people. not all users, of course, but many.

sad. mandatory registration to post would help to reduce the poison that is spread here, but will never happen because it would reduce traffic and hence revneues.

wrong. mandatory registration is of no value re decent individuals who do not malign other people by name.

the value of mandatory registration is in deterring the small-minded vindictive scumbags who take evil pleasure in starting threads like "Jill Schmoe is blankety blank."

Mandatory registration would not eliminate that problem, but it would reduce it.

The fact is that Topix is a viciously destructive website that has hurt and ruined untold thousands of marriages, careers, reputations & etc.-- some of it "justified," some people would argue, but much of it aimed at completely innocent people.

It's disgusting and disgraceful, the way real names are slandered on this website -- all across the country.

And yet there you are on Topix all the time contributing to the exact things you detest. Ironic, or split personality? No, more like HYPOCRITE!

Oh, yeah, as if nobody would LIE about their real identity with mandatory registrations. A genius you are not.

I certainly do not contribute to the things I detest, namely the use of real names in a derogatory manner. N.B. that others have appropriated the name "troubled youth" since I coined it, so if you've seen a "troubled youth" maligning another individual by name, I assure you that it was not me. Whether you believe that or not is irrelevant.

As to your other point -- you missed it. Virtually no one on Topix would use their real name should registration become mandatory (not that it ever will). I do not suggest that they would or they should.

I do suggest that mandatory registration would give pause to the evil-doer and plant a seed of doubt as to whether registration might, down the road, lead to an exposure of their identity and the crimes against decency that they commit with every post and comment re "Jill Schmoe is a blankety blank" and threads of similar ilk.

Pretty simple.

My point is, and was lets use this site for the potential resources, that it can offer. Like town meetings, activities, store openings, and social gatherings. Does herkimer site even have a moderator?
agreed

Troubled Youth, you can't fix stupid as demonstrated by your opposers above, who actually seem to be advocating trashing someone by name. You will never be able to reason with them, they haven't the intellect to comprehend.

This site has no normal people on it. BECAUSE there are no normal people in the area. Dolgevill, LF, Herk, and so on are all small towns, with small minded people! They will always talk shit so deal with it. Troubled youth whats your real name? Age? where do you live? If you wanted to PROVE your theory you yourself would have a registered account with your real name. YET, you have a "coined name" and an unregistered account. HYPOCRITE much???? Register and address us only with your real name. Thanks for your retard input though.

Obviously you are one of the small-minded individuals to whom you refer. I've outlined the very simple rationale for and implications of mandatory registration, and your small mind fails to grasp it, instead flailing out the senseless characterization that I am a "hypocrite."

I suspect you are one of the evil-doers who delight in maligning other people by name on this website. If so, you are a complete and contemptible scumbag.

Just like the eyesore on the 4 corners?

Your posts show you are a true idiot. All of them.

And yes, you are all those things you mentioned in the thread you started. You have to be. Your comments show how uneducated you are.

You know, who am I to judge. I don't really have much going for myself. I come on this site to interject my thoughts and opinions, then sit there and pretend someone else is using my user name just to start trouble. Please consider me small minded like you are.

Ok Susie you came on here to show how you are a great person who DETESTS people slandering others on here. You also want a mandatory reg. for here. You also want people to ALWAYS use their real name. YET YOU HAVEN'T done any of that yourself. You refuse to say who you are (I think I may know). Now you have stated that I am a small minded dirtbag, because I don't agree with you LOL. You really are insecure and you degrade people if they don't think like you, and/or agree with you!! SO, why don't you leave the thinking up to the big boys, your small mind can't handle being completely wrong. You should not be able to make topixs. Idiot

where did I call for people to use their real names? in fact, I did not.

all i have to say to you is that I hope you're not one of the evil-doers who slander people on here by their real name.

if you are one of those spineless worms, you will get what you deserve.

Slander is spoken, libel is written. There is no slander possible on Topix.

Besides, you are one of those spineless worms who trash people on topix all the time. Call the kettle black much?

As applies to matters of law, you are correct -- slander is spoken, libel is written.

However, this is Topix, not a courtroom. "Slander" is perfectly acceptable within the common vernacular as synonymous with "malign." Definition from dictionary.com :

2. a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report: a slander against his good name.

And once again, I do not trash people by their names. I find the practice reprehensible. Believe me or not, I couldn't care less.
