If registration is abandoned, what safeguards are there for the anonymous defamatory and libelous statements mounted by character assassins and other cyberstalkers who have no moral compunction against posting lies about others on your site. Defamatory damages are very real, and can ruin lives and careers. Does topix.net share responsibility for those damages.
Does Topix.net preserve user id and other identifying information for access by the courts in actions for defamation.

Trolls:

"An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response[1] or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion"

Wikipedia 2008.

Greg you and others you should think very carefully about un-registerd sites such as topix.com . Good forums are destroyed by troll abuse and mentally insane people posting onto un-checked and uncontrolled forums. Forums lose all credibility as internet sites and people simply will not use them anymore.

topix.com is now full of trash, hate and abuse from long term and new trolls that post onto its forums on a daily and weekly basis. Reporting it to topix results in little action and topix never bans trolls. However, in defense of topix some trolls use Proxy Servere IP's which makes banning them hard or impossible but the site is poorly managed and trolls have a free playground to stalk and abuse anyone they want to.

Trolls destroy lives and reputations and I think its the reponsibily in a "civilized society" to protect others from online bullying/stalkers and abuse.

Forums should always be pro activly managed. Sadly this is not the case with a few web forums including topix.com
