Hello everyone in topix land:

I am Teresa Martin's sister and there have been negative posts circulating about myself on this site for two days now. I never imagined that my small hometown would have turned into such a toxic place.

I am praying daily for all of you who cannot refrain from posting negative things on this site about others. I am also praying for the town and everyone this site negatively affects.

I would like to make all of you in cyberland aware of the fact that topix can release your IP address to the courts and your comments can be deemed as defamation of Character. In case some of you are not aware your cell phones also have a IP address that can be traced back to your account by simply getting a court order.

On February 03, 2009, Mark and Rhonda Lesher filed a defamation lawsuit against anonymous posters on Topix.com . Although Topix was not a party to the lawsuit, it was forced to reveal the IP addresses of the posters and the dangers of unmoderated anonymous posting on Topix were brought to light for the first time in the public eye.(wikipedia)

Please do yourself a favor and ask yourself before you make a post or a a comment if it is truly worth it. I do not visit this site much, but I am made aware when there is negative post about myself or my family. The next post that is made pertaining to myself or my family will be immegiately recoreded and the IP address will be tracked for legal purposes.

Thank you,
Shantele Starling

Thank you so much for this post. You have done this with grace and dignity. I also only go on this site when things are brought to my attention and I have said some things back,but not slandering anyone, when I really should have ignored the stupidity. I have never started a topic and normally don't even bother to look at anything on here. Thank you sincerely for what you wrote. You may not know it but you have helped me to remember who I truly am. I wish you and your family the best. Thanks again, and have a great day!

Excellent Post! and I hope you carry through with it if this libal keeps up, and also all the other people who are being libaled. If you and other people don't stop it , who will? I think several people are going to get a rude awakening when this all comes out. So sorry that you and you sister were slandered so bad, I don't know you, but I know your sister and have always loved her.

You have did a great job. Makes many of us remember who we are. I just want you to know that I love you for your dignity. No one should be adversely affected by family no matter what the situation. The Starling family will definitely be remembered in my prayers and will always be dear to my heart.

You are a great person. Hold your head high!

I wonder if the people who have done all the gossiping will understand just what Shantele's warning means. They seem so wrapped up in this gossip that it looks like it is going to take something drastic to happen to them before they get it through their sick heads that not everyone will put up with this Slander and Libal.The next few days should tell.

McDonalds internet is susceptiable to IP tracking, Just like all the others. People have gave you enough rope, now you have hung yourself "JUST ME".Some people never learn, and the original poster gave you a way out, but you didn't take it.She was very fair and gave you a second chance, which I thought was a very Christian thing to do, to bad you didn't heed the warning.

(Just Me)... You must be a child bc if you were a true adult you would grow up and see what kind of trash you really are to put stuff on here thats a lie and isn't any of your buisness...I'm so glad to see this is being taken care of bc I myself am having stuff saved and looked at by a lawyer.so be careful.

Im Glad to see Topix, LLC doing the responsible thing and monitoring this site. Just Me's post was removed within a few minutes of being posted.
If any of you have a issue of Slander, Libal etc with your names mentioned on this site, please report it as abuse. At the bottom of this page is a link in bold letters, click it and completed the necessary information and the post will be removed. Responding with negative remarks will not help the situation.
If you are viewing this site regularly, also report abuse for others even if it is not about you.
A person who gossips is someone who carries some resentment towards you and who doesnít have the courage to face you directly and so he found no other option other than talking about you in your absence or anonymously.
People will gossip about you if they are jealous of you, if they arenít strong enough to face you with their concerns or if they feel worthless. Those people try to make themselves more worthy by saying that they are better than someone else.
The people who gossip about you are really suffering from serious issues and there is no other explanation for gossiping other than an emotional imbalance that is affecting the gossiper's behavior.(at least at the time of gossiping).
Maintaining your prestige is one of the very important tasks you must do when dealing with gossipers. If as soon as you heard about the gossip you became mad, confronted them or threatened them then this will only show them how badly you were hurt by the gossip and how fragile you are.(
M.Farouk Radwan)
Don't let the negativity of this site get to you, do something about it. Report it...

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

I agree with these posts 100%..I had no clue there was such a website until someone I love was a topic on here..on the other hand I have to play devvils advocate..I have no idea who just me is, nor do I know the person people are saying it is..my concern is this....this website is used to inflict emotional pain on others and wreck lives. Anyone in the world can usse the handle just me so wouldn't it be a surprise if when researched the handle just me was used by MANY diff IP addresses and people are uusing it to post nasty things to make people believe this person is what everyones describing so in the end that person being blamed endures emotional pain and a wrecked life. If it is in fact one person then prosecute to the fullest extent allowed by all means..but I am curious to see if in fact it truly is one person. I'm not saying this as a specific response to the original post but I've wondered this for awhile and fig this would be the one to post on. Most everyone on this site says awful degrading things about others and probably uses a diff name with each and every post but just me,the same name, has popped up on every post consistently using the same handle so is it just one person? Who knows for sure but it is awful that someone can be so hurtful also consistantly.

Here is what i know. one person goes by "just me" and her posts are full of hate and slander, if another person goes by "Just Me" and writes a nice post most likely it is not the same "Just Me" that has been spreading gossip on almost every topix, all IP"S can be traced to all' Just Me's" and it will show which "Just me" is spreading the garbage. Hope this helps.
Oh yes

It certainly is quite on the Mannington Topix tonight,why is that? are you afraid because of all your gossip and slander, that your real name is going to be found out? I would be afraid too, Very, Very afraid. I am not a mean person, but I just have to rub it in a little after all the people's live's you have destroyed or tried to destroy, All I can say is "Didn't your Mama ever tell you it is better to keep your mouth shut and let everyone think you are stupid, than to open it and leave no doubt",.Gossio and slander are stupid, Get It?

I haven't followed all the posts and like I said I don't personally know anyone from that area so I can't put faces with names so I get confused easy when I do read some of the posts! Lol...all I know for a FACT, which is rare on here, is that posts have been made about someone very important to me and it effects more than just the person being talked about. It truly does disrupt lives and can lead to feelings of dispair. This obviously is the goal for some people. A good person with self respect and no insecurity would be able to solve a problem one on one with a fellow human.
Well

'Devil's Advocate" you sound like a little angel to me, Yes I understand how you feel, it hurts so bad when someone gets on the topix's and spreads terrible things about people you love, and even if some of them are true, no one has the right to judge another, that is God's job. It is just so strange, these people who come on these post's seem to be so lost, like they have no decency, no soul, they just seem to be empty of any human decency toward other people. I would be afraid of these people because it seems like they have no conscience and they would not think twice about hurting people, as if they haven't hurt enough people with those wicked post's, but yes I think they would take a life, their conscience is so seared with a hot iron that they have no humanity left to them.

It appears that "someone" isn't taking the situation seriously. Every single person in this world has had mistakes, has been hurt, betrayed, used, jealous etc at some point in their life, its all human emotion, something we unfortunately have no control over. However we do have control over how we handle these emotions and lifes unfair situations. If someone has to resort to posting horrible things about others and CONTINUE to do so after seeing they have caused hurt then they really need to do some soul searching and figure out when enough is enough. Every situation has a line that's drawn, toeing the line may be able to be forgiven but crossing the line is definitely something that has to come to an end.
