Just wondering if I've made a good decision on my move to Paragould. I am amazed at all of the gossip and names that have been posted here. Did you know that naming someone and posting something untrue is SLANDER???? I used this topix site in my hometown to keep up with "news". But I am just floored at some of the posts here. Kendrix Robb? I've met him at one of the factories. Seems like a nice man. How would he feel about the things that have been said here? Does he get the chance to stick up for himself? I can assure you, if I ever find my name here and it's something that's not true, heads are going to roll. At first I thought it was a bunch of females bashing males, but I see just as many females getting bashed, too. Sad. Really sad. You all need to clean up your acts.

Strictly speaking, since it's written it's libel instead of slander. But yeah, they know. They just think they are invisible -- despite pieces on the local TV station detailing how they can get caught -- and therefore immune to countermeasures.

Okay, you're right! Libel.... really it's just disgusting how people talk here. I don't know too many people in town, but I hope this is not a reflection on what most people are like around here. Seriously, if I found my name here, I would dig until I found out who posted it and then I would file a complaint.

Yes it is really sad. Out of all the places I have visited Paragould citizens are some of the most unfriendly people. No one has manners anymore.

I've noticed that too. I really didn't come here by choice... got a transfer. I think people here seem very unhappy. I'm origionally from a small town and was expecting friendly small town people. Wrong.

Dont let a few small minded Jerks let you form an oppinion of our town. I have been all over and aside from the few simpeltons that like to gripe at each other or the ones that want to talk about their genatils, this is a great place to live. I live an alternate life style and to my knowlege have not been pubilictly dierespected, Glad you are in our town and hope you have a wonderful holiday. Peace

This is pretty much how ppl in Paragould act now. It wasn't this bad when I was growing up here but it seems that it has gotten worse the last few years. I have noticed that topix forums for other towns aren't filled with near as much gossip as ours. My husband and I have considered moving far far away because we don't want our children growing up in this community. So much for "Paragould, The Friendly City!"

I know the feeling. After first moving to the so called "Friendly City" I really enjoyed the people I met and then I read topix to see the rest of the story - it is sad really.

I have lived here all my life and it has not gotten better. I have been to places where they wave at you, hold doors open and have common courtesy but you rarely see that here.

Ya, that's what I mean... I used topix in my hometown to just see what's going on. Local events, accomplishments, and newsworthy tidbits. Nothing like this. I think a moderator should take out the filth.

Don't let all these bad apples spoil it for you. For some of us, we wouldn't want to live anywhere else. There are a people here that don't bash and are happy for the most part.

Welcome to our Town and I hope that you truly enjoy living here.

I did too. That's not how it is here it is a bashing session here. You, unfortunatly, can not get much reliable news or info from this site!

Yeah, people in this town keep me confused. You think they are your friends, but really they are not. I have learned to pick my friends very, very, very carefully. Its a shame that I have lived here most of my life and (not including family) I can count the people that I trust on one hand. It is such a shame.

Paragould calls itself the "Friendly City: yet you see a rather high number of incidents from trashy talk to crime. I was really shocked by the large number of people who are considered "Bad asses". I see and read of a higher crime rate in the past 3-4 years from all local people, and not any newcomers such as Katrina refugees.
How can a community who claims to be friendly, have so many trash talkers? I often go there to shop and work some, and I am shocked from the claims I hear about Paragould being a community with so many felons, sex offenders, drunk drivers, and stealing. I see road rage, gossip, and some of the rudest cops I have ever met.

And if it's so friendly, why are people calling eachother out here? I guess I shouldn't support it by reading it, but I just can't help it. I'm amazed by what people say about others here. Yes, maybe someone is strung out on something, but do we need to announce it to the whole world where their kids or family may see it?
