<quoted text>See, you and the next poster after you, shows your disregard for any decency at all. In stead of admitting to being uncivil you insist on your right to do so and attempt to belittle me at the same time. And yes, it is posters like you that fuel my fire to fight it. Perhaps that is part of the problem with our country today, respect and civility have left and in it's place rudeness, and cold callousness. In your defense, you want to insist that instead of addressing the fire, I should be addressing the onlookers. Do you even really believe that?

The Internet is a bit like the Old West in that most people are civil and law abiding with certain renegades running amok because they feel as long as the Marshall is away they can do whatever they please. Well good luck with that.
You really are ignorant aren't you? You feel free to take on the world, it matters not to me one way or the other. You are not a superior being who can't go without being questioned. You may hold yourself in high regard but I assure you no one else does. Your form of bullying, less the curse words, puts you in the same spot as those you are irritated at. Grow up stupid! No one must follow your command.

Wow. I'm ignorant? If standing for what is right is a shame and considered ignorant, I will wear those badges with pride. No, I am not superior, this is true, but I do believe I am in the upper echelons of those care about others, at least on Topix. And I have little time to worry about others who look down on me. So, by your words, anyone who stands up for what is right and civil is a bully? I don't expect anyone to follow my command as I command nothing. I simply made a statement. And yet, you continue to insist you are in right standing with how you are treating me. So be it.

I take it this is about those two topics that seem popular, but have little, if anything at all, to do with this particular Topix City of Lewisburg?

I'm not treating you any way at all. Your life, feelings, wants and desires aren't of any concern to me one way or the other. As for you "being right"? Well I'm not real sure at this point you have any idea what right is other than your babbling on and on a bunch of nonsense. Sometimes less is more and in your case that certainly holds true.

From the comments here to you and those on the threads you mention, I can understand how you feel. They are a sad example of the human race. Maybe more users should complain.

What is right you say.

You say you are worried about the kiddies who may be affected by what they read here because their own parents know how to properly parent or simply do not care.

I say what is right is that I warn as many innocent adults and children on here about the antics of one particular poster before they have the opportunity to fall into one of her traps.

Is your right any more right than mine?

There is one difference between you and I and our battles. Mine is personal because I once believed her when she said she wanted a truce. You have no dog in this fight except the one you bring to the pit yourself. In other words, I did not pick this fight, You, however, did. In this way you are very ignorant. My Dad always told me not to start any fights, but when drawn into them do your best to finish them, but don't give up until the fight is over.

You started this, so be prepared for any backlash you get by sticking your nose where it does not belong.

Sticking my nose where it does not belong. I'm having a hard time trying at to figure out how my opinion of anything posting on Topix would be out of bounds or none of my business. Your dad may have said not to start any fights, but mine said choose your battles wisely. And I do. The least I am worried about is any backlash.

Then stop crying out for attention and cease your attempt to gain support for your little useless cause. Most importantly stop bullying those that don't agree with you especially when you took the time to list those that you have judged to be guilty.

Exactly. Now you've got it. I just hope that you use more intelligence attempting a statewide thread than you have used over on this little town thread.

Perhaps it would do you better to understand, I am not about attempting to stop you and the others from carrying on. I mean quite frankly I realize you are (I think) adults. I truly am more concern of keeping children out or at least curtailing them. Of course the Internet today is not designed to do that, like having special "pay for" channels to limit access. I hate to see that because as I pointed out before, the Internet is going to get more expensive in order to regulate it. That is not about freedom of speech, it is about protecting the innocent. Sorry to have ruffled anyone's feathers.

That makes a little more sense but I think if you are going to attempt a fight against Internet porn, smut etc you need to realize that there are far more harmful things than curse words floating around freely on the Internet many of which would make Topix seem like a day care center. I'm not sure you understand that their are controls on every computer that permit a parent from allowing certain sites access. In my day a good azz whipping far surpassed any of this time out stuff you modern day parents go for. If you don't want children looking then take the damn computer and put it away. Stop trying to interfere in everyone else's life because you can't control your children. Probably trying to list SN's and not getting it right you should take your cause to the local, state and federal levels of government and stop harassing a few people posting on one web site. Best wishes.

I do agree with you for the most part, except expecting parents to do a better job parenting. This isn't like the old days. Even as a kid we had access to some parent's porn mags and their alcohol, and I am not an angel. Yes, I am well aware of computer controls, but again, in this day and age with the Internet, the world's cesspool is as close as an unbridled computer for any kids. That is a shame. It's also a shame we as adults are unwilling to bridle ourselves for their sake. We are just as much responsible for the next generation of young adults as their irresponsible parents are. And you are absolutely correct to say the cause should be taken up to the federal level. That is a shame as I hate forced regulation in order to get people to do the right thing. I hate having the government in my business at all.

I respectfully agree with your concerns as well but there just simply is no way possible to "parent" grown adults and attempt to teach them right from wrong. Most certainly with something as new and expansive as the Internet. Surely you must see this. Selecting one web site and picking and choosing a hand full of posters on that site to persecute doesn't help your cause. It makes your cause fall upon deaf ears and surely you must know that. I have to say I think you are going about your cause the wrong way. I also think you adding NBM to your list was unfair as he stated. He has not used any vulgar language and is always a gentleman. I think you owe him an apology but that just my opinion.

I said my intent was not to label everyone on the list as vulgar, but as whole, all were contributors one way or another, either through agreement and condoning or even encouraging others.

I am not above attempting to make amends. As I told him, the list was made at moment of disappointment at what was occurring at the time. It was not my first time on that thread. It just seemed to have turned even uglier than ever. I admit it may have seemed like a knee-jerk reaction but it was more of built up disgust for it all.

It is hard for me because I see a world that is getting worse by the day and even harder because like the Old West, there are no barriers on Topix to those who choose to display their hatred and ugliness with no remorse and no care of who sees it. Perhaps if Topix was more like Facebook with only registered names, it would be less of a problem. I am not about censoring, just accountability. Yes, I could just close out Topix and not return, but is that the answer? I do enjoy debating and learning, but not being so vile that people are saying what they have on that thread, even to the point of threatening physical violence which although is nothing new, real names and real locations are known and I would hate to see anyone carry out their threats.

Yeah we have seen what all the regulation has done to the television industry over the years. In the early years you did not hear foul language on TV or radio. Now there are very few limitations to what one can do or say on the airwaves. The cable channels only accomplished one thing. Making the major networks more daring.

Yes, it was around #21. Civil disagreements without attack is fine by me. But it is probably best I part ways with the thread I have issues with. I don't really like it when people get mad over stupid crap and then come out punching each other.

Thank you. In the last paragraph however you turned to your own enjoyment leaving out the entire reasoning for why you originally took issue with the post, which was children. I'm just attempting to help you help yourself if you wish to really see change. Focus on your original issue and don't fall into picking out a handful of people on a thread with thousands of post unless you are prepared to provide an accurate listing. Otherwise your issue will hold no Merritt to anyone reading it. Hope this helps. Have a great evening.
