Many may ask why my interest in the Civil War since it was so long ago? I study and share that era in hopes that we may all learn something. The era before, during, and following the war is a MICROCOSM of all that humanity ever WAS, IS, or WILL be.
It is the accumulation of the Human Experiment which includes greed, conspiracies, ambitions, desires, anxieties, insanity, bondage, freedom, and even simple pleasures. It incudes man's inhumanity to man as well as compassion for others and the ultimate sacrifice and the ability to put aside differences and be kind to one another:
Inhumanity..The Simpsonville Kentucky Massacre where 25 surrendered black Union soldiers were not allowed to surrender but were murdered on the spot, similar to an occurence in WW2 at Malmedy where 84 American POWs were murdered by the Germans. We judge those "evil" Germans, but we do not even know about those evil Americans at Simpsonville.
Compassion: Barbara Dosh was an orphan taken in by the Sisters of Nazareth of Louisville. She died in Paducah at the age of 22 while nursing both Union and Confederates. Her honor guard consisted of 6 wearing blue and 6 wearing gray, all former patients.

I have chatted with mods that used registered accounts on another topix site, I know it was mds because one of them told me to watch a certain comment get taken off, and it was taken off before my eyes. I picked one at random many pages back and challenged the mod to take that post # off, the mod took it off. The next day our entire conversation had been removed.
BTW some mds have a sense of humor. Most don't though.
The Mod we had that used to pop in our town forums to say hello was really cool.(I don't know if it was a male or female). Maybe it was TopMod5??? My memory fails me. But we were never taunted nor were we ridiculed or told "watch this".... It was always a pleasure when they popped in and our threads cleaned up immensely. Still to this day, they're relatively free of abuse. When something pops up, all we have to do is report it and it's zapped.

I find it a bit questionable that a real Mod would behave in such a manner. It's not something a good moderator should have done.. So I say it was a regular user who only claimed to be a Mod.. Don't you think?

"Sybil" may have used that infamous "reply" button that I previously spoke of... Probably replied to something else that came down from the threads. It's just a guess, mind you. Told you, I avoided this thread for a long time. I'm not familiar with many of you. Ohio Jeep Girl was here back then, so was Ancient Wolf.

No one is anonymous in a public forum, lol. I don't think though that purely reporting something makes you a target. Nor do I believe that Topix merely hides from YOU what you've reported as offensive...
I do however think that this thread has garnered the attention of the Mods due to an over abundance of personally abusive and vulgar attacks by a select few..... For that, I'm thankful. At least we don't have to weed through 25 idiotic comments to read one that's worth the time it took to type it out....
The Mods of Topixland surely must stay busy I'd venture to say.
Yes, they do all stay busy. The only thing that has ever bothered me is when someone throws kids in here. Or people that died and they talk bad about them. It's just uncalled for. I am often singled out...as a couple of others here, you shall notice...as being a troll, or attacking people. I never attack, unless provoked. I think a lot of us get provoked in this place from the people that believe they are anonymous.
I don't dislike anyone here, although there are a couple that I have "warm stabby" feelings about. lol

Many people don't know that as many as 90,000 blacks, slave and free, were employed in some capacity by the Confederate army.
The Louisiana native guards demonstrated what free blacks, from Louisiana, thought about the Confederacy. The Louisiana native guards was a militia regiment comprised of 1400 black men and officers who offered their services to Dixie in April of 1861.
They uniformed themselves and trained to stand in defense of New Orleans. Even though the Confederacy wouldn't recognize them as a confederate unit the regiment organized a march through New Orleans in 1862. Local newspapers reported that a band of "Rebel Negroes" well drilled and uniformed marched through the city that day. But "Creole blacks" were considered to be above other blacks throughout the country by most southerners at the time.

If it was a regular user he could get comments taken off fast. But now that I think about it, I agree that could have been the case.

so are you implying that people talking about such things as their genitalia, colonic activity, or sexual intercourse with animals should be allowed to post and you find that appealing? I don't believe in censorship an more than you do, but some people cross the line of decency and should be censored and this has nothing to do with Hitler, that's a pisspoor analogy.

That is wonderful since I would not want anyone to be mistaken LOL but I prefer to call it "unique" or just different from the masses.

I popped back in to say I do not agree that I can't see posts that I had reported, because there are several posts that I can't see and I have only reported twice in 1 1/2 years and those posts still did not go away.

As a general rule, I do not think that it is my job to police the thread since I don't earn any money by being on Topix.

Well, so far I find you to be quite a nice person. I'm sorry that I'm not more familiar with many users on this forum as of yet, but maybe that will change.. As I said, it got too monotonous having to skim through truck loads of manure to finally find a "flower" worth reading. Hopefully that's changed.

Seems like a lot of feathers got ruffled in the last few days.. Again, I really don't feel like going back a thousand comments to read the details, hehe! But it's nice to find another refreshing user on here, "RoamingInsomniac". Maybe you'll find some of thoise "warm stabby" feelings for me!!! In the right way, of course. I'm not "on the market", as they say, LOL! I simply try to stay polite and direct. No more, no less.

Yep, I'd say that it's someone who's familiar with the sniffer bot and knew that a comment was going to come down anyway. Then of course the timing was just right....

I find it hard to swallow that a real Mod would behave that way. For one thing, they ARE a Moderator, so why wouldn't they just log on with their Mod signature and say "OK, this ones going down"?

I'd also venture to say that most REAL Mods don't even like to get in these threads. I'd think that they'd be so sick of it after dealing with it all during a working shift, that it's the LAST place they'd "play" around in.

I'd imagine they've seen the worse of humanity coming from the fingertips of people by now.... Shameful the way some people behave while they ignorantly believe that they're being secretive and can hide anonymously on a publicly viewed, yet privately owned, web site.. Privately owned being the distinction in obeying the TOS set down for using said PRIVATELY OWNED site...

That commonly yet ignorantly thrown around "I have Freedom Of Speech" phrase doesn't much apply when you've read,(and agree to 'by clicking'), someone elses rules for use....

I really don't think Topix has a bias about who reports anything, be it a registered user or a non registered one.. Just use the "Feedback" link provided below, or click on the "Report" button that's on every comment block, top left corner by the judge it's..

I've never read about anyone complaining that Topix didn't take them seriously just because they were a 'regular' user.

Many slaves went with their masters to serve. That was normally with those that treated their slaves well and the slaves felt a kindred spirit and bonding for the only family they ever knew.

Touchy touchy.

Pisspoor?

Are you spoiling for a comment fight and then trying to make up the rules as you go along? Everything is fine as long as it suits your own personal rules.
That is a censorship mindset. The word pisspoor offends me, fart on the other hand does not. Do I have any rights in your perfect little world? Or is it all about you?

It irks me that most history books left out the roles of black solders on both sides of the conflict. I had never read about the Creole blacks being thought of as superior to other blacks before last year. I think many many other deeds of Afro-american solders were left out of the history books thus lost forever. I ran across the article about the Creole blacks in the archives of the New York Herald, dated July 11, 1863.
