You can get into trouble if you are posting someone. LIBEL.
If you don't want to believe GOOGLE it.
and it don't matter if you are trying to spell the name wrong, also if its a good hint of whom you are talking about that is all that is needed for a case against Topix to give out the posters name.
Topix gave out a posters name from Rogersville and in other states.

did anyone know there is a new device that can pin point exactly where the post came from?

So if you want to be held LIBEL feel free to post someone's name and tell all the lies you possibly can they will get your name. Post Away .........

Topix is free speech...yes but it is not for defaming someone. It is for discussing current events at past events that are going on in the world.YES...we can be held libel for posting names and telling lies on someone. So we all need to really watch what we are posting. All it takes is a warrant served to Topix asking for it to give out the posters name. It don't matter if you change your location on your phone it can still be traced. I know you all have heard on tv about ping from a location when the law is searching for a missing person, they get a "PING" from the last location of where that persons phone was used. This is available now to tell the location or map where the post is coming from. Its a high tech world we are living in!!! The above post is true so Topix users beware and be forewarned you may be going to Court and its not as expensive as posters have previously posted on here it don't take lots of money to hire a lawyer it may be the responsibility of the poster being sued to pay the court costs (which makes perfectly good sense).

Its called slander. And it doesn't mean just cause you talk about somebody doesn't mean you will get in trouble. If it was like that everyone on here would be in jail.

In order to actually get in trouble for slander (not as common as people on topix seem to think...) you have to prove that it effected your life, like, it caused you to lose your job. Hurt feelings generally don't win lawsuits on their own.
