Should topix moderators censor, just cause you hit a nerve with some 'certain' people in town and then be allowed to post newspaper articles about others. What is the difference... oh wait, I know, more people read topix and they are afraid people will learn what a real low life they are.
sorry

Did you post a newspaper article or gossip? I have seen many links to news articles and they have not been deleted.

No one wants to even discuss or seems to care about what you are trying to post anyway. Give it a rest. Go outside and take a walk or read a book even. Try to get your mind on something else.

No. I am on here because I like to discuss politics and current events.

Censorship can be a dangerous thing. If used, there should be firm rules for what should be deleted on Topix. Peoples names (other than people in the news, public figures, politicians, famous people, etc) are an example of what should be. Harmful obviously malicious threads or posts aimed to target an individual is another. Posts stalking someone, particularly those by internet predators stalking teens or children, should be zapped. I've seen unstable and sick people which stalk or harass women on internet forums, the equivalent of making obscene phone calls.

But censorship on things like Topix must be weighed out carefully. Like a lot of people I've had threads and posts zapped that I still have no idea why they were deleted.

Is this entire thread now deleted? I couldn't find it on the main Topix page. I had to enter it by way of my past postings on my profile page.

Just on my stuff I've had a thread and at least two posts on other threads deleted in two days. No names, links, or cuss words in them. The thread I started that disappeared stayed up for about an hour before getting zapped.

Someone may be being a jerk and falsely reporting posts as being offensive.
