Sounds like someone's been crying to topix and having offending posts deleted but not after dealing their dirt first.

I don't get it. Our Topix moderator gets his panties in a knot over someone saying that Elks get a goofy hat, but he lets "Joe dugooder" spam the daylights out of these forums with some link to a paving scam? Really? I suspect that we are dealing with a clueless mod who has a chip on his shoulder over something.

Strongly agree with you on this topic.
What's happened to this world, why do others feel the need to come on sites like this and spread vicious lies and rumors?.Are these people so board with there lives that they feel the need to put others down or find fault with other people?.
A lot of the threads on Topix should disappear!

And yet all of you naysayers are here on Topix, reading threads and posting your opinions? Bwahahaha! Before the internet, we all used to gather in a bar or around the water cooler to gossip and share our opinions about: politics, businesses, criminals, and eccentric neighbors. Now we use social media. Mutatis mutandis, and yet everything really stays the same. Get with the times, and stop being such pathetic Luddites!

And yet,back when people went to the local bars or would stand around the water coolers to gossip, there was a face and a name to hold this person accountable. now a days there's nothing to hold someone accountable for there actions, there for these people think they can do or say what ever they with no actions to be taking from others..like i said people with no backbones!.

Being a topix moderator doesn't mean you get to decide what is posted and what isn't. Topix WANTS this type of discussion. That's what it's for.

If someone actually libels another, there is still just as much accountability now as in the past. There is actually more accountability, as libel, being in print, is easier to document than mere verbal slander done around the water cooler.

But here is the rub: most of what is said here is not libel. It is opinion. There is no tort. Sticks and stones make break my bones but names will never harm me ... that is just as relevant now as when you first learned it in Kindergarten.

What's more, the political threads on some of these small town sites fills an important void in local political news and commentary. Locally, the Evening Times does a TERRIBLE job of political reporting, and Topix routinely scoops the print media.

Finally, even the worst threads are little different than writing nasty remarks on the wall of the bathroom stall, just like when we were in high school. My only complaint with Topix is that Google indexes these threads ... and that is a sin on the part of Google, not Topix.

No Willy it's all the miserable trolls like yourself that couldn't take being held accountable for their actions. That's why you change your name so often. Sanctimonious jagoff.

IOW, you want frontier justice because someone bad-mouthed you? Smoke the bastards out so you and your cousins can break a few bones? Well, some of us rather believe in the rule of law.

If someone libels you, you are free to hire a lawyer, subpoena their ISP records, and get your day in court. But merely stating an opinion, or bad-mouthing you, is seldom if ever libel under the law (or slander, but that doesn't apply to Topix).
