This is Cassandra Cooley. I was just informed that someone or some people were writing things saying that I was sleeping behind my husband's back while he is in the National Guard on drill. Also, they gave my address out..While that is not only creepy, I'm pretty sure that is fucking low as you get...If you have a problem with me, grow some fucking balls and say it to my face for once...I know the person that wrote this is just jealous because her husband left her cheating ass..And is also jealous that my husband can provide for our family and is out there helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy while her husbands sits on his ass and watches kids all day..Awww..Sucks to be butthurt doesn't it...True story...

Slander is spoken. Libel is written, FYI

Good for you for typing this... My family too has been talked about in a negative way... And there was also no truth to it... I don't understand why this website allows this... It can be very hurtful, and it's not a good thing if you have school-aged children. It's also pretty creepy when someone posts about where you live... Topix needs to get on it and take down some of these posts....

I agree with you. But it seems to me after 1 year at this site, that its poorly administered. They have never once replied to any contact/request I have made. But on the other hand I have seen them remove hundreds of post which were completely benign in nature. They even removed an entire thread of mine that wasn't personal, nor had any adult-ish content. I have responded to thank some posters who said nice things but I get prompted that I am using profane language. But they will leave the thousands of other posts that serve zero purpose and only exist to be overtly gross, sexual, or personal attacks, many with X-rated language. There is no rhyme or reason here. Its either favoritism or incompetence. My only advice is that if you want to remain posting on Topix you have to just live with it. But I'd keep kids away from here.
This site is overdue for an upgrade as its archaic compared to others:
- cant edit or delete once you post
- absent moderator(s)
- cant embed video or photo links
- point/reward system makes zero sense ( is there a level 9?)
- low word limit ( problematic when you reply to lengthy thread)
- pointless 4 number code you have to enter for each post
- inconsistency with acceptable content
- time-limit on gaining points when selecting a thread
- no font enhancements or emoticons
- too many variations on anonymity

I agree, especially about the kids having no business here. If there could be one thing they would control about this site though, it should be the immediate removal of a post that has names on it. I feel those do the most damage, whether the person is guilty or not of what is being said. That or if it could tag the post with the posters REAL name. Lol people would be too chicken shit if that couldn't hide behind anonymity.

I agree with what you wrote, I don't let my child on here... It just worries me that his school aged friends may read the false things written about our family and it will get back to him. I didn't even know about this site until a friend told
Me to check it out because of what was written about my family.:-/

My name was also posted on this site from an ex-boyfriends sister who didnt like me after I left her abusive brother. I didnt respond and I got a good laugh at what she said. Funniest part I didnt know about this site until my bff told me. I looked and apparently a few of my friends had too cuz they called her out and said she was jealous. I work and take care of my kids. I dont have time to party or sleep around. But people are gonna talk so let them. You know you are not a bad person and close friends know that too. I laugh at peoples insecurity and ignorance

I don't know how but I do know there is a way to request the thread to be deleted. As Spleencage said, there is no rhyme or reason when it comes to mods deleting posts but it would be worth a try. I don't blame you in the least for being upset, given that people can post anonymously, if some are mad/jealous/whatever, they don't care to fabricate stories to cause trouble.

<p style=”color:#0099ff”> I'm a moderator for two other forums and this one takes the cake. You're correct Spleencage about the nonanswering of requests or languages used in these threads.
Also, the inability to change the appearances of text is the OLD way of doing things </p>
Another thing I don't like is the inability to delete your OWN posts.(Let's see if this works in this forum :D )
