I do not like this new system. Using my name is fine. But I no longer use facebook and resent the effort to force us into facebook. It is an invasion into my privacy and a loss of my freedom of speech.

You don't have to use facebook. If there is a story in the sun news or the editorial page all you need to do is copy and paste on to this forum and start the thread.
LCSN has the right to control their property. Topix however is not their property. It is an open forum.
Today's sound off is already on this thread.

I agree. I don't like it either.
The LCSN push into FACE BOOK has reduced my DAILY visits to
The Las Cruces Sun News web pages (almost entirely). FaceBook is a destination just like Topix is. They are different and I don't want to share my FaceBook with TOPIX. Don't and won't.
Since I stopped receiving the
news printed paper news version a few years ago, TOPIX was at least guaranteed to invite me to not only read the headlines and community new stories, I enjoyed TOPIX as an entertainment destination on my computers. Now, I read the obits, front page and that's it. Try selling that to your online business advertising subscribers.
Some Topix editor somewhere dredges up Topix threads from many months and some cases years old to try to re-invigorate the forum.
It's not really getting it done, is it?
Bring back the TOPIX forum before you lose any more readers to inactivity.

There is a "new" Topix that gets the majority of articles from the LCSN. You will need to bookmark the page as the LCSN will not take you there anymore. Here is the link:

I am more interested in the Deming Headlight than the Las Cruces Sun News, Ruidoso, etc. It appears to be a mixed mess of all the news papers. Too much extra stuff and fluff to sort out for me. Face book, no thanks.
