Who thinks up a garbage topic like this? What good does a topic like this bring about? I find it odd that a “newspaper” would allow itself to be a part of rumor, innuendo and or speculation. I thought that we were to turn to the press for un-biased reporting abased on facts. A topic like this only brings about more coffee shop talk mostly from the un-informed and ignorant, while promoting the idea in some peoples mind that “something must be wrong” if the paper printed it.

How about this for another topic?

Does the editor of Reinbeck Topix, beat their spouse?

Why not wait until a full investigation has been completed and the FACTS are brought forth. Then you can post another asinine “poll” for the readers to respond too.

You don't think your just a tad Paranoid?!

Your poll is ok if the editor of Reinbeck Topix wife was beat up and on TV for it. Or should it be in the science fiction category. You should try yahoo.answers.com and ask them if its a big deal or no deal. Relax, no reason to just go around flaming.

There isn't any reason to promote rumor and speculation either, which is exactly what this topic is meant to generate. How can something like this post promote anything else but that very thing? Besides, it wouldn’t matter if a topic was or wasn’t on TV, it still is an asinine subject to post and the editor should be ashamed for allowing it as a topic question in the first place.

Flaming would be “if” I were to say that you shouldn’t be allowed to post anything if you aren’t smart enough to figure out how to use your spell-check. But, I won’t tell you to try learning how to use your spell-check, lest I be accused of flaming. Have a nice day!

Your so small and its a genuine question of interest. As far as flaming I was talking about the lack of respect for topix.com . No reason to go right after their integrity. This is the internet not a printed newspaper. Being internet savvy takes experience. Your spell checker theory is adolescent, who cares. I can type over 200 words a minute and can only hope to misspell some. Nothing turns me on more then someone who don't care what their typing looks like. I'm working on just using my body language and telepathy to communicate.

At least your making a attempt to be polite now. Relax and if old enough have a couple beers for us this labor day weekend.

My......sounds like I'm talking to the editor herself. Sorry to offend you Ms.Editor, but I thought this site dealt in misleading comments and topics.

"Nothing turns me on more then someone who don't {enter DOESN'T here] care what their typing looks like."

The post was and still is misleading and asks for the reader to cast doubt and speculation. I stand by my earlier comments and have signed my name too, unlike others I see posted here. Now that you are "turned on" my work is finished. Have a nice day!

WTF? What kind of paper leads its readers to assume that this fire was anything but what it was? Shame on you. Also, how does someone in Illinois get involved in an Iowa topic, or is this a "drive by" posting? I know the owner personally, and the subject of this topic galls me, no matter how fast I type, or how correct my grammar is...no matter who is turned on. I'll pass on the beers, I'll be watching Jerry Lewis this weekend.

I'm not the editor, I'm aware of what posts look like to the mainstream of society. I do have moderator experience on other sites. So I do have a overview of the level of a post. Beware what you post!

Ed it is not on a paper. Its just at a website. What was the fire? Arson or accident? It sounds like you already know? Its a simple and natural question. Not very complicated. Freedom of speech. The shame is you have to be small minded about it and make a mountain out of a mole hill. If this gets advertised for anymore then its worth its probably because of people making a big stink out of next to nothing. Getting more attention would probably sale more of Delta's targets anyway. In the long run its better for all of us all the way around. No pain no gain. Its like who cares if Bill Gates has 165 cars this year instead of 166. I wouldn't feel sorry for him. Try answers.yahoo.com for a while so you can see how to become more versatile in trading information effectively. Lots of things are said on the internet. Take what you can use and let go of the rest. I'm not assuming anything its a multiple choice poll. If people shouldn't think anything and just have blind faith in believing the face of the media even if that means when its sometimes fake, then this world would be dumb, it wouldn't have any flavor, it would be naive,bland and very boring. We would all be a fabrication and have teeny tiny little minds with no morals or soul.

I can't wait to hear back from ya, you guys are fun...

Ahh, now we are going to hide behind the "free speech" excuse. Must be a Ron Paul supporter.

Dear Logan IL Genius,
Who really cares how fast you can type or that you are turned on about someone elses typing skills. Please try leaving your mothers basement long enough to wipe yourself off and get a life. And...who cares about that contrite dribble you posted about Bill Gates? Geeeez, get a grip. The others who posted are right, the topic of this post is BS pure and simple. Remember the American way...innocent until proven guilty??? I won't judge you for what I suspect you are until I have more proof, but hey, that's just the way I roll.

Basically the only reason why I made the topic is because its just fascinating on how easy you guys blow your top on the subject. It feels like someone who has never had to handle a insecurity, don't have a clue and actualy lash out at everyone for their problems.

The reason you made up the topic is that MAYBE you know more about it and that the police may want to question you. I think it's a backhanded admission of guilt.

Dear Tampon IL,

It sounds to me the only reason you made up the post was because you are lonely and ignorant. I think the others are right, you need to get a life. Not one person "blew their top" as you mention. Most were surprised at your comment about getting turned on by other peoples typing. I can only imagine, but it's probably a safe guess that you type one-handed since you are turned on so easily.

Yeah, posting from Tampon, IL makes one think that there are "strings attached" to the REAL reason he is posting these things about a fire he must have set himself.
