Topix will be sued class action style for destroying people. Also be aware that if you harass, defame or libel someone in your post, you, too can be sued. The topix terms of service ensure this is possible and suits have been successful. I am personally tired of this site destroying the fabric of our community. Your IP address can be traced like a phone number so beware.

Topix is NOT legally responsible for the things people write on their website. That's the law.

That's right first amendment protects us and if all you public officials are mad to bad this is part of redressing our government of our grievances .
Ip addresses are constantly changing and if you were smart enough to call the police you would realize they can not do any thing about what is posted on the net .... So get use to it until Raton starts working for the people and not our elected and appointed officials personal agendas you will be slammed on Topix. Beat thing to do is publicly apologize and accept blame for your failure and we will ease up. Until them screw you were banging on you web mob style .

There you go again thinking with that block of ice you call a brain. The first amendment applies to all aspects of life written or spoken . It does not matter it it's a web site or not . What do you think yo're some sort of lawyer with your TSJC criminal justice degree ?

http://www.askthejudge.info/is-the-internet-p...

The only factor that would void such protection is in the case of clear and present danger. F***** moron! And in case you don't know clear and present danger is like a when you and a the girls are a at el raton and a you want a to like make everyone run like for their lives so a like you a scream oh my God everybody "fire". And there's no fire like any where, like for real Becky omg!!!

You're a real idiot !!!

Askthejudge.info? Bahahahahhahahah! Maybe you should go to TSJC and get some schooling. If you are defaming someone with libel or slander, you bet your uneducated ass you can be held liable. All it takes is someone who is fed up with the trash in your town posting said things on this site to do something about it. Now go and google this info so you can see that what I'm saying is true. And no, www.judgejudy.com is probably not a good place to start.

The First Amendment protects the internet just as much as it protects newspapers, that's true. So if you own a website your writing is protected by intrusion by the government.

But YOU don't own Topix so you have no Constitutional "Right" that protects your postings here. If Topix wants to prevent you from posting, they can; the First Amendment only prevents the Government from limiting your speech and Topix moderators are not the government.

Furthermore, the First Amendment does not protect writing that is defaming or libelous.

I think you read some shit about the First Amendment once, a long time ago, but didn't really understand it.

Lol your the idiot if topix would have stopped it they would have and as it looks they are not going to do a damn thing about it . And in order to prove liable and slander there has to be proof that is beyond a reasonable doubt that the Claime was made by a specific person. Stop lying to the good people of Raton in an attempt to intimidate them as they have been for so so so long. And if you're such a wise guy research it google it call the district attorneys office call the police they can not do anything about it. Hands are tied and guess what all you sons of a bitches who continue to suppress Raton are being exposed and torn apart. I challenge you to prove to use that the first amendment does not protect individuals rights on the Internet . TSJC has these courses avaliable of you care to enroll, maybe you can be the new city manager when you achieve your associates degree...

Slander and defamation aren't crimes that the police or DA investigate, you dimwit. It's a civil matter.

Holy shit, you really are stupid aren't you. Born yesterday?

No way!! Really? The police won't hunt down the troublemakers? OMGoodness. I'm done on this thread. Some things are just too far above certain peoples intelligence (or lack of). Debating with you is an exercise in futility, you just can't think at those higher levels of Bloom's taxonomy. It's not your fault. Perhaps you are gifted in other areas. sighhhhh.....

Wrong. Apparently you didn't watch the 20/20 episode where a woman got sued for writing false things about a man. He hired a lawyer and he asked a judge to allow him to get the IP address. The judge allowed it and guess what. They found out. She lost and he was awarded a judgement. We do not have the right to defame someone and make false accusations. We all have the right to face our accuser in court. So before you spew about first amendment rights please understand the the victim also has rights. The right to know who is ruinin thier lives with false accusations.

Well apparently you're confused with understanding state sovereignty and the way laws are not all the same in each state . In New Mexico their are no laws that govern Internet except for child solicitation , and no one ( thank God) is participating in that sort of criminal behavior. You need to research the first amendment and supreme court decisions about freedom of speech and how it applies to the net. If your a public official your subject to public discussion regardless of the nature. What seems to be the problem is a large number of you have never had an entire community hate your guys at the same time and have never been subject to such truthful and harsh propaganda . Why is it the only reaction you sissies can produce deals with mis spelled words ? Apparently you can read between the lines because you're all angered at the fact that we the citizens are feed up and finally have an outlet in which we can control . The Raton Range failed to be truthful and allowed their reporters to come on line and create controversy in an attempt to sell news papers .

A radio station (KRTN) so scared of social and economic change that the radio station changed the broadcasting schedule for the city of Raton commission meeting from an FM broadcast to an AM broadcast. This is an attempt to divert listeners from a more common radio dial to one hardly ever listened to an AM dial which is almost dormant . Lol busted

If you slander or defame a person they can hire an attorney who can gain access to an IP address regardless of what state. The first amendment applies to all 50 states yes, but we all have the right to face our accusers. You will not be allowed to hide behind a screen name once your IP address is found out. You will have to face the music. The state you live in does not exempt you from it. Slander is slander regardless of where you live.
