Because we aren't used to expressing ourselves in this small town. I mean, let's face it... the culture in southern us towns is to hold up emotion and you are brought up as if no one cared. Topix gives people a place to express that emotion in a way we've never been before...anonymously. I think it's good, however we need to learn from this. We need to learn that it is okay to express your emotions around others. If we all learn to do that... what is the point of gossiping behind each other?

Let the grudges you are holding go and use it on the person you are angry at. If that means getting physical, whatever works.

This has nothing to do with not being able to express anything. People get on here and start rumors and spread hate!! This site should be used for better things. It actuallly should be shut down. People can get on here and say anything this site would be onre of the reasons people who are considered weak and have low self esteem would take there own lives. Madisonville you need to wake up this is not cool at all!!!

Why do people spread hate though? Do you think hate comes from no where? They have these emotions that they haven't been able to express until they came on here.

Topix is actually a good idea in theory, but anonymity brings out the worst in people. When you have the ability to say things without a face, you can express yourself much easier.

Or maybe you could get on here under a familiar moniker, or maybe, I don't know, YOUR NAME...

Anonymity is fine, esepcially if one wants to express their views in peace. HOWEVER; using anonymity to smear and slander others, to spread vile rumors and to incite hatred and discord is pure cowardice and malice.

The extent to which anonymity is used on this site to harm others' reputations is appalling. I came to post here for the first time a few weeks ago looking for someone. I have also posted on the Roman Catholicism thread....but I cannot help but see some of the vile thread topics here and cannot help but wonder at the small minded, evil little people behind them.

I think a lot of the nasty things some people post are done out of jealousy. They are insecure with who they are.

ppl do get on here amd start rumors. like you said i wouldnt call it expressing anything, but lies. more than half the things posted on here isnt true. its ppl that hold grudges or trying to start drama bc they have nothing else better to do. who on earth cares who the biggest hoe in madisonville is or the easy lay. how on earth could anyone believe anything posted on this site. just bc its posted on this site doesnt make it true, honestly it makes the ppl that post the bad things look bad. id have to agree with you on this.

If you do not cheat on people, get strung out on drugs, etc. and live a relative moral "right" from "wrong" life - you have nothing to worry about and 99% of the time if someone writes something about this person that is gossip - people know. Further, "what comes around goes around" and the people that are filled hate, rumors and gossip, this built up anger will eat at them and cause them nothing but pain in their life and unhappiness.

I serious doubt a person that spreads rumors and hate on topix is a truly happy person with love and grace with regard to who they are...

Some of the posts on here are like bad jerry springer scripts. If I see something on here that I know what is being said is not true I will defend, but there are too many people that hide behind their screen names and have more than one so they can keep stirring it up. They have way too much time in their hands, and don't know how to spell.
