Does anyone else get hit with a barrage of this junk every visit to Topix?

May I suggest a program called MalwareBytes ( www.malwarebytes.org ).

Thank you! That particular one is incompatible with my a/v software so I use another malware remover called SpyHunter. I've been around this site a while and I can tell you that it never used to be this bad. I suspect that it's related to the false number of viewers at any given time. Reputable advertisers should know about that.

It got really bad about the same time that Topix removed all its rules and replaced them with this warning:

We encourage the free exchange of views and opinions. Try to be interesting. It would be easier on all of us if you were polite. If it upsets you that the free expression of ideas is often heated and offensive, please do not use Topix.

Now, racist remarks, insults, spam, using others monikers, all are allowed. Only the very worst of posts are deleted.

Yes, I think you're right about that. I must ask because I see your moniker (which has flooded the forum for the past 13 hours it appears) is also registered to another user, what's up?

That's a good one coming from the biggest troll on Topix. Are you still paid to be on here 18 hours a day, 7 days a week?
