I've noticed that a lot of the people posting on here are just unintelligent. Not everyone, but it seems like a large majority. Most people target specific people or opinions and if it's an opinion, instead of arguing about the subject, they target the other person and become irrational. To be frankly honest, it looks pretty stupid. It seems as if all the wrong people use this site. The people I've seen are radical in either one direction or another so they spend their time on Topix trying to make people who disagree look stupid. It's as if none of you have ever learned how to argue. It's possible to be things besides completely biased. Oh, and the gossip probably should stop. I know that anonymity gives you power but come on, that doesn't give you an excuse to be a raging dumbass.

I always use my names because I am not ashamed to do so. I stand behind everything I post and don't even care what others say because I know its the truth. I agree with what you common sense

Well I don't mean for people to use their names as usernames, the whole point of Topix is that people remain anonymous. That would defeat it's entire purpose. I was just stating that it's there to keep people's political and/or personal beliefs out of the public eye, not belittle everything that they don't like. It makes their side of the argument look so terrible. More than anything on here, I guess I just wish that these people would've taken speech or debate in high school. Jumping to insults shows unintelligence and pushes away anyone in the middle.

Oh and to continue on what I was just saying about Topix being anonymous.. It also lets people who may not have a voice in the community or someone too afraid to voice an opposing opinion talk in front of the town behind a username. This town has a lot of the good ole boy system going on, sometimes it's a good thing to not be judged before you speak.

Pam, who was I judging? I actually said its nice not to be judged in that post haha. Oh and yeah there's a difference between people who are trolling and people who are terrible at arguing so they jump to insults. Most people on this Topix don't seem to be trolling though, they just throw temper tantrums and attack people personally.

I don't understand.. Did you not just say exactly what you were replying to? It seems like the people commenting angrily in this thread are the people I was addressing.

And who am I attacking? I haven't tried to offend anyone. Unless you classify yourself as one of the people who I was talking about. I was not mentioning anyone specifically, I was targeting people who use Topix as a place to slander other users. People who post something like "does anyone know _______?" And then continues to degrade and slander the person.

I assure you I grasp english more than you do. The truth is people like you lie so much that they believe them self and even argue with and twist conversations, seems to suffer more them self more than norman people. My truce is I do not have time to argue with a narrow minded person like you.
Also people that drag out faults of others is trying to cover their own faults. Sometimes becoming depressed. So Looser argue with yourself because I do not have time for this Bull Shit. Just keep doing what you are doing, and keep getting what you are getting. The recent post '' You cant fix stupid'' This is so true in your self. Maybe get a job and stop living off welfar. Most people from off usually does.

You know what Pam I was not going to get into this argument until you put that last statement in your reply. I resent that statement. It just got my blood boiling! If it was not from people from off bringing money into this hell hole the n mountain view would be a poor people like you would not have a job to be able to live here!!! Most of the people on damn welfare are the locals!!!! The ones that stay doped up and do not get into trouble because they are from here and have family that bail them out of everything!!! The people from off are the ones that of they do anything god for bid they the book thrown at them in the court house and that is what funds your lovely courthouse the people from off!!! If you would like to learn a little more about your town folk I can educate you my dear friend!!!! Oh I forgot you probably have a mountain view education. I'm sorry!! I am so tired of everything getting blamed on people from off when they are the people that fund this hell hole!!!
