I have been following numerous threads that the moderator will let certain people post and blocks others . I feel as an American we should all have the right to state his or her opinion but yet I follow this moderator from thread to thread and having him or her pick and choose who is aloud and who is not aloud to post. im sorry but I think all should be aloud to post their opinions weather you like it or not ! to let some and not others is constitutionally wrong everyone deserves a say their piece weather you like it or not! Im not sure if any of you have noticed this but I find it rather disturbing!

I agree with you. I don't think it's right for people to post their opinion and only a few people opinion stays on there and the others get removed

See post #2 wasn't even posted I'm not sure what their post was. This is just another example of how they the moderators dictate what you see and what they the moderators don't want you to see. I for one think this is completely wrong and unconstitutional! Peoples rights are being trampled because people do not head the topix byline that is freedom of expression and if it offense you they say to not use topix but they are blocking people from expressing them selves!

Moderator your own terms say and I quote (If it upsets you that the free expression of ideas is often heated and offensive. Please do not use topix!) But yet you block people from posting! What gives you the right to pick who post and who doesn't with these bylines? people its just another way that what you hear is being controlled by big brother! If you rock the boat they will toss you out so make sure you take what they spoon feed you so that you wont speak your own mind for that will not be excepted!

I call on all that have been blocked from posting on this site to fight back! Don't be treated like a silent minority. you have the right to voice your opinions and feelings they cant deny you that its in their terms and agreements that if it offends you to not use it! SO if you have been blocked by the moderator please, please stand and fight for your right of the freedom you have and deserve! you are not cattle you are AMERICANS DONT LET THEM SILENCE YOU!!!!

The mod allows dozens of "one word" topics to pollute the board and crowd out all other topics so clearly he is a retard.

The mod is brain dead...

All the threads about ni** ers stay up forever. But as soon as somebody pipes in and tells these fools to STFU the mod deletes it. It seems youre allowed to attack but not defend. I can see why topix has the reputation it has.

Why is that going to happen? Are people not aloud to question the moderator?

Go somewhere else then dude. Topix has every right to remove whatever they want. It's their website. Start your own and call if bigbigotspoutoff.com and have yourself a klan party. No one is stopping you.

Im not sure what your problem is but im not on any one particular side. All im stating is why is it okay for one side and not the other to be heard. and you young man need to do a little growing up. Shouldn't you be in school at this time. your remarks are immature and completely unnecessary. If You have issues with hearing both sides maybe you should start your own one sided site. and leave the adult conversations to the adults.

It's ok because it's their site. Their rules. They can remove whatever they feel like. It's pretty simple.

So your saying it is okay to be one sided and biased when it comes to a conversation! What if it was your opinion that didn't get to be heard would you still be so one sided? My post are up my problem is why should any one persons post get blocked I was under the presumption that this site was here so people could voice their opinions! Or am I mistaken? you preach a good argument but when the truth be told you are as narrow minded as the people you get on here and try to demoralize. It is sad that you wont open your mind to hear both side and make a judgment from there.

you have a right to spew your illiterate rants as much as you want. Topix, as the site owner, has the right to moderate, remove or block you. Don't like it? Start your own site. Get back to me if it happens.

I'm not saying anything about the argument dumbass. I'm saying topix gets to decide what gets posted on their website. Don't read it or post on it if you have a problem with it.

Mr. Scrog I have not been blocked. This is supposed to be open forum for ALL to post their opinions correct? and might I ask what have I spewed out that makes me illiterate? All you people do is get on here and insult other people. It just shows the level of maturity or lack there of that you have. Yourself and the one who calls him or her self Zaphod should get along great. Your both very immature and very narrow minded. Good day to you!
