I just had mine removed today!! Yeah just report it and they take it down within 24 hours! Some ppl have nothing better to do than to come on topix and start shit. They'd never say it to your face bc they're obviously too pathetic and petty... Just hide behind a d*mn screen like cowards.

The term is libel, not slander (slander refers to the spoken word, libel to the written word).

That said, I never fail to be shocked by some of the horrible statements I see on Topix, much of which is very obviously untrue, so I am glad that they do quickly remove that kind of post if requested.

The fact remains, however, that once the post is indexed by search engines, it is still available online in cache form. For that reason, removing it does not necessarily solve the problem, and if I were you, I would search to see if it shows up on Google.

I really think Topix could do a much better job of stopping those types of posts. It would not be that hard to appoint moderators, after all, and it would cost Topix nothing. I am quite sure some of the longtime registered users would be honored to moderate the forum, and have the free time to do so.

I know who this is, no... I'm not your precious jessica. And I'm quite sure Jessica was not the only person to have a thread removed today. My advice? Leave the poor girl alone and go on with your life.

Topix is a joke and jokes are neither slander nor libel.
And People who accept public office also open themselves up to jokes and to higher scrutiny.

Wow. Yeah, they are. If they werent, then there wouldn't be legitimate law suits against those who start the shit. But I think I missed the part where the everyday community member opened themselves up to higher scrutiny via public office. Your argument is ridiculous and invalid. Lmfao but nice try.

It hurt me to see one person being so unkind to another.

No that is not Jessica, it's Jamie Wroten. She can dish it out but she can't take it. That's all I'm saying.
