I am needing any and all information on this. If I have a court ordered subpoena, can Topix release the IP address and/or any user information that was used to post a threatening thread? I read under the Terms of Service that user information is not released unless directed by a warrant, subpoena, etc. Has anyone done this, or know someone who has? I just need to prove that a thread was started by the person whom I currently have an on-going investigation with by law enforcement. Any help or knowledge about this is greatly appreciated.

yes, they can release it. I can tell you first hand, we recently got a court ordered subpoena and topix has agreed to abide by it. It is the first step in making these losers pay for their attacks.
Next step will be issuing subpoenas to service providers for the individuals locations and records. Then it will be on to court to exact our revenge. It is a tough and drawn out process, but it is possible. GET A GOOD LAWYER first to go through the Grand Jury for your subpoena.

Ron, does it suck to be you as much as it looks like it does? What would you sue people for? Telling the truth about your arrest? You have no monetary damages to collect on.

You are better off just not responding to people's awful remarks or not to read it at all. A fire never gets bigger if you don't stir it. They get bored of a topic quickly. If you just ignore it, then they will move on. People who just constantly put others down and look for reasons to talk about others just simply have no life and very low self-esteem and bad problems. They put other people down in order to make themselves feel better about their own lives. It's actually very sad.
Totally Agree

We totally agree with you, but it's the people doing it. We do not worry about the Bellamy's, they are low life bottom feeders who get theirs from poor people. It is other people who dictate media and other areas that keep it going when they get mad. It is simply enough already. They have no lives and love to attack Ron hourly, here and in the community. The problem is, like you say, most people are sick of it and siding with Ron and others being attacked, so they are actually helping those they continue to attack.

The OP (original poster) wasn't talking about suing people for posting gossip. They specifically said THREATENING posts, and I do believe that in a case like that, Topix has to release user info. Topix will always cover their own ass first.

Also---Woman arrested in Kentucky because of threats made over Topix. This was last year.

From New York last year---

So yeah, the OP has a good chance of getting this done, and I wish him/her luck. Gossip and petty meanness is one thing, threats and harrassment is quite another.

A court order will get any web site to take notice, but why would anyone want a court order? Topix is all about posting gossip, but any threatening post to do bodily harm to anyone can result in a court order or subpoena to get IP addresses, etc. Most of the time when someone post threatening messeages to anybody on Topix, Topix will remove said post. But, people that do post threatening posts to do bodily harm on Topix, or any web site for that matter, these people do need locked up. Posting a threating messeage on a web site is just as if the person said it to the other person to their face, so that would be terroristic threatening.
