Some people complain that Topix is nothing more than gossip and childish name calling. I say to those people: it doesn't have to be. Topix IS whatever the participants have created.

I have seen many offensive posts as well, I am not particularly supporting people's right to get online and act like a fool. However, the way to make Topix something MORE than gossip and rediculousness is to get on Topix and create something MORE.

You can do it! Just do it.

it dosn't matter what the topic is the majority of the replies on that subject will always turn to the negative point of view. just look at every post on this site starts off neutral sometimes turns posative then alway has a smartazz or sarcastic turn toward the negative. dosnt pay to voice serious topics on here because of the final destination of the subject...

The key is to carry on the conversation in spite of "trolls" or rude, stupid people. Sort of like talking over the children. Don't let them ruin the thread, it's like letting them have their way. Brats!

Another reason that pleasant topics are quick to die - they are boring. There just is not much else to say if you agree with what someone else said..

Some people are timid or concerned about being blasted if they dare to post on this site. I say: risk it. Add something interesting so this site will be worth reading.

Topix is about drama, rather your saying it, doing it, or just like reading about it. It's there, you nor can anyone change it. It's a world wide web, so therefor every smart ass is going to point out their point of view. Of course, most the time it is not needed.( as you may think this post isn't ) but from a former subject that was talked about on here, I highly suggest everyone to over look it. If you like to read about it fine, but no one should cyber bully anyone!
