Why is it that Jonesboro Topix is no hateful, negative, slanderous, etc? in other cities, even cities in Arkansas TOpix is predominantly helpful, informative, interesting discussions about issues which are on people's minds. I've done a quick data analysis and find that 87% of all threads have an noticeably negative/hateful manner to them vs. 35% of threads found elsewhere. Why is a college town with so many churchs, so conservative, so damn mean and hateful?

I'm anxious for an answer to your inquiry as well. People here seem very indifferent to their Topix counterparts.

You curse and call us mean and hateful while complaining Topix is mean and hateful? Since when has free speech required politeness? Congressmen now say You Lie! on tv to the President. I am completely against using anybody's name on here that isn't already a public figure. But Topix (and presumably its users) notes in its TOS that "the free expression of ideas is often heated and offensive." As for your 'data analysis', what standard do you apply for what's hateful, negative and slanderous? Can you slander an anonymous user name? I sure don't think so. What some people find offensive others find humorous. If it upsets you please do not use Topix (See TOS). But the public has a right to post according to the terms of service. Sensitive users don't have the right to dictate or regulate out speech within those TOS.

I'm all for free speech and I'm all for disagreements- especially those that get heated cause that usually implies a real stance on the issue that matters to the individual posting even if it's playing devils advocate to stir the pot. I get TOS, which is a weak rationale for a community's disproportional negatively which is at the heart of my inquiry - and in this case the hypocracy of such given Jonesboro self-proclaimed bastion of all things religious, conservative, and proper. Why is Jonesboro - the land of plenty ... plenty of banks, healthcare, jobs, churchs, schools, police, education, diversty, etc exceedingly negative in it's attitude? People treat each other far better in cities doing far worse.

People use this site for entertainment alot of the posts are crap because a person wants to see how many people will respond. The more the better. If you ask a normal question on here few people respond most people just want to gossip.

I don't want it to be that way. I'd like to have serious discussions on today's issues. Right now I have a stalker that somehow completely stole my registered name and has been writing some horrible, sometime pornsgraphic things about me using my registered name. I registered this name and now he is typing in my new registered name and doing the same thing. I have no idea why people behave the way they do. If the Valley View school district is mentioned, you will get a plethora of posts trashing that school. I really think that one is jealousy. Watch out. Now that I have posted to you, the nasty stalker using my registered name will probably come and put some pretty nasty things. Also the mention of the VV school district might too. Try just participating on Politix. It is much more watched by the moderators. There are heated debates, and as usual the idiots who try to screw it up for the rest. I just ignore their posts and move on. Nobody can steal your registered name on Politix like on Topix. If my stalker said the things he says on here on Politix, it would be quickly removed by moderators. He also would not be able to use my registered name on there. You have to be registered. So if you see my name with nasty stuff written, you know it is not me, it's him!

I agree! BelinKS people can tell the difference between you and your stalker. I guess I should say TherealBelinKS. He is awful and perverted. His IP's he uses should be banned. Most people do want to have real discussions whether they personally like you or not. Do not let this man run you off! I promise we know the difference.

I may look into Politix. I've heard they don't allow Bozos to run amuck there.

The primary reason is simple: Jonesboro is the belt buckle of the Bible Belt, and that means the gossipy tendencies of evangelicals is at its height here in Jonesboro.

Go to any comparably sized city's Topix page, and you'll find only a few posts. Jonesboro is filled with new posts each day. When you have a town with no character that is filled with gossipy right-wing church goers, you have a recipe for the kind of inanity that you find on Jonesboro's Topix page. Jonesboro needs to grow and learn what it means to be progressive. Instead, it's just a dump filled with dumb rednecks who think sidewalks are a form of socialism.
