Someday soon Topix will be shutting down the forum part of its news site, due to the names being constantly put on here, they have had so many complaints about posts and requests to have posts removed... I know this is true, type while you can..

I don't think so. Check Topix's stock price. Don't you know the wheel that turns is turned by money. I have called Jo Ann Emerson's office, the Missouri Attorney general's office, I have talked to Steve Hodges and have also written letters to numerous other politicians about this site. I get the same answer from all of them. If you have proof please share it with the rest of us. I for one would like to see this go completely away. That way someone can start their own and monitor it or provide rules like TRUE REGISTRATION. Freedom of speech has allot of power. Sadly, there are so many complete morons in this town, Portageville, Lilbourn, and Marston, you can't have a decent forum.

Even though I disagree with Allen C, I don't see him coming on here and bashing individuals. Even though I completely disagree with him 95% of the time, I can say he is one of the good ones.
I dont know

I just looked at the price and it belongs on the Tokyo stock exchange. It's lower than it started. Maybe.

Hey Allen, you want to make a forum with someone who completely disagrees with you?
agree

I have contacted the same people. The freedom of speech thing is huge, but what it is going to take is someone willing to go all the way. There is no litigation set about the internet yet; there will be soon. But the fact that topix allows people the freedom to get on here and pose as other people is identity theft, not freedom of speech. If someone would try it from that angle, maybe. I have had a young kid get on here and post as myself saying things I would never say, and it infuriated me. I will totally back anyone who is willing to do this; I know I have a case, I just don't have time to mess with it now. Someone like me will get pissed enough and take it all the way someday soon .

I have to agree. I disagree with Allen C on most things but he has a right to his opinion. Like allot of us on here, he doesn't feel the need to slander people. Usually you see political discussions from him. Although maybe misguided in my mind, it's his mind and where he stands. Everyone deserves to have their opinion heard not their slander. It's a shame we have to put up with the slander and the personal attacks.

Allen, I don't know you but I figure if we ever sat down to have a Coke together, we would get along personally. Nothing wrong with having your own opinions. You my friend are one of the good ones from what I have seen.

Thanks. I think we'd get along personally also speaking our own opinons. I wouldn't always agree with you, and you with me, but we'd get along nicly disagreeing with each other.

And to who else who feels the same, thank you. I know my opinon and views are not always the same as everyone elses, but I would never want to tak away a persons freedom just because they disagreed with me.

I'd buy you all Cokes and have a great debate about this country and our community. It's a sad day when we have to be told to shut up and not speak our minds in America. People will not always agree, but we should agree that we should continue to say what we feel and not fear being punished for it.

Though, I have to say when a child is involved, and this child of younger age (I view 15 or younger as a child) is being bashed on this site, it shouldn't be tolorated. If this child or person can't defind themselves, then it's an unfair discussion.

Just my view. I feel that we're all adults here and we should uphold ourselves that way.
