You are about the 1000000 person to say this. Topix does need to be shut down. People are human and with the way topix practically encourages us to get something off our chest, etc., well human nature can get out of control. I don't think anyone should get sued. I do however think topix should be shut down then no one would get sued LOL. If names were ever given out about who said what Greeneville would never be the same. I am quite sure if we could see who is saying what it would be very hurtful and astonishing. JUST SHUT IT DOWN SO WE WON'T BE TEMPTED. A lot of people will start a topix about someone they don't like only to have it back fire on them because the people know who is starting the thread. Just shut it down. I found topix a little while ago and I absolutely hate looking on here but it is like an addiction.

What can they really do???? Post a list of IP adresses and maybe a list of the owners??? That would'nt prove EXACTLY who it was.Alot of homes have 3-4 people usin the same comp.Then you have people who use their neighbors/McDonalds/libraries free wifi.Anything more than that would be slander and they would be just as guilty as the people on here startin trouble.I agree that alot of stuff gets out of hand around here but short of pullin the plug on the whole thing I just dont see what they can do.One things for sure it'll be interesting to see how/if this plays out.

One thing is for sure whoever is complaining or demanding anything will need to let us all have a look at their computer. Chances are anyone who is complaining has been on here doing the same thing to someone else only now it is about them and they "don't like it". Well welcome to the real world. Do you really think the Greeneville Sun is going to give up all this advertising? Face it, shutting it down is the only way to fix the problem.

Topix is a nationally syndicated site. Only places like Greeneville and other small towns use it as a bashing board. No one is going to " shut down Topix site. There may be repercussions for the small town sites ie: new rules for posting etc. But I guarantee that Topix itself will not be shut down.

And just what "new rules" would there be? I can post lies, gossip, inuendos, etc. but you can't? Topix got out of control the moment it began in Greeneville. Opinions are a dime a dozen and if what somebody said is true, then you best get over it cause they can say it over and over and over again. It's just sad that we have all gotten to be so horrible to each other.

If you would read something besides that piece of toilet paper Greeneville Sun you would see there is some truth to this, not in the original posters context, but in legislature.

Just off the top of my head.
Require everybody to register before they post so folks (like me) couldnt post under a unregistered name.

Make everybodies profile visible to everybody who uses the board.

Some forums make you use your real name as a user ID,that sure would throw a turd in the punch bowl now would'nt it?????

Other forums have a three strikes your out kinda deal,start trouble,spread gossip,or just be a douche bag in general and after three times your outta there.

Now most,if not all,of these would require a moderator to enforce,some say we have one and others say we dont,heck I even heard it was Robbie Britton one time.

Really? Because I have to say that would take a lot of money and a
Lot of time for one person. I have to wonder if a person would invest in all
Of that. Besides, look at the people that are on topix. Who do you desire to convenience? Do you really care who posts on this website. Seems
To me that the more you stir it, the worse it smells.

But if it's the truth, then why worry? It's just the elite in town do not like the truth being exposed. I think timing is everything, with the upcoming elections and people wanting to make a name for themselves. But, I am sure there is more truth than can we can
Imagine and once you take that step in exposing people, then you open yourself up to all of the truth being exposed. It's a choice people have to make.

Somebody posted something about somebody that knows somebody with a position to pull a string or two and stir a little smoke in the direction of the insulting poster. Again welcome to Greeneville. I don't support their rat race, and constantly color outside the lines. They don't receive my $$$$.

All your comments are being back traced by the internet police, if you want to fix this 'problem' try to get somebody to get some mods on this board. If I had to register I could lie, ip address I could just go though a proxy, mods to delete the moron comments is the only solution.

Oh yes, the Sun will ride in to save the day, while they turn a blind eye to the ethical issues in our government and the scandals that actually have an impact on the community.

It'll be a poorly researched and written article that will declare Topix "bad" and all of the 80 year old subscribers, the vast majority of their subscriber base, wont have a clue about it and nothing of substance will come of it.

Not saying that there arent major and disturbing problems with Topix, but the Sun couldnt withstand the legal challenges of "exposing" Topix.

Yes definitely Topix needs to be shut down. When I first saw this I thought it the most rudest thing I have ever read. People who write all this stuff has nothing else to do with their life. They have no self esteen about themselves. Nine times out of ten it is those people who are just plain JEALOUS of someone else.SHUT TOPIX DOWN!! IT DOES NOTHING BUT DESTROY THE COUNTY AND ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE THAT DO LIVE IN IT.
