There are endless posts of people trashing others and using proper names. If there are any ADMIN. taking notice to anything here on TOPIX they need to put a stop to this! There is no need to post anyone's name, in any situation!

Here is one example of why it is not a good idea. Suppose your name is John Smith. There may be multiple John Smith's in the community. If some ignorant member submits a post on TOPIX titled "I just saw John Smith shoplift at Wal-mart" people all over the county that know a John Smith will assume that it is the one they know.

Come on people! What the heck are you thinking? Where are the rules on this forum? Where are the ADMIN. or Moderators? Better get a hold on this people while there is a Somerset Forum to post on!

Dawg, I totally agree with you especially since my name has been posted on here more than once.

Unfortunately, because of the number of posts that go up, it becomes the responsibility of those who find it to report it.
The persons name who is posted may not even know this site exists, so maybe we should report them for those people and get them removed as soon as possible. Just a thought

I found out about this site because my name was posted, twice!!!! I had them removed as quick as I found out but of course that's not the point. The sad part is that people will post a name and almost instantly other come to start bashing. The joys of living in a small town I guess. The best thing the rest of us can do is as soon as we see a persons name on here automaticly send an e-mail and get it removed. I have done this for a couple of friends and it doesn't take that long.

I agree I have also been down the road on here once and the people who were running their moth was kind enough to not only try to bash me but they went after my family whom i know they did not know . so i agree get all names gone from here

I have seen a similar situation in a small in NC. where people figure out who the poster's really are and start trashing them, bringing their personal info out into the forum. I can only say, it is immature and the make up of a bored person looking for instant malicious pleasure.
I however, looked up the validity of these complaints. I did a google search, and all i found was this thread. So good luck with the bashing issue, but growing up and posting outside your own zip code might be a better option.
A lot of interesting issues exist out there, so get out side the box. And enjoy some interesting threads and interesting people. It is more fun than wallowing in your small town's self pity and drama.

There are two ways. Go to the very first post and click on report it in the upper right hand corner of the post. I also scroll to the bottom of topic, click on feedback and choose inappropriate post on the drop down menu then copy and paste the link from the orginal post on there. Usually takes a day or 2 but they do remove them

I too have had family members slandered on here. It sucks

It would take such a long time to get all of the threads that are trashing people taken off. That's a sad thing... that people have to trash others that much.

This website is supposed to be about news- who is whore and who is sleeping with who is not news.

I Understand how all of you feel they is 4 other people with my name besides me. Imagine the problems I have with that? My name appeared in the newpapaer and everyone that knew me assumed it was me. Prime example.

It is just a forum, and really after a few days people give up on the trying to slander someone tactic, best thing to do is turn off your computer and let it rest awhile. The more u dwell will only upset you, pay it no mind and it goes away. People really don't believe half the crap on Topix anyway. The person that tries to gossip on another is generally left without words soon enough.

Thank You for the advice. But if I let it bother me It would of drove me crazy years ago. The way I look at it on Topix if they are talking about ME, they are letting someone else rest, or at the very least I know where I've been and what I've done, I just say someone should of woke me up for that one. I missed a lot of fun. It just irritated at dr. office and things like that, but I do understand when the is so many of the same name. I am not rude or mean to the person that is trying to find my chart or whatever, but it can be a problem.

Too bad... Out of the 10 "recent posts" in the Somerset forum right this minute, 7 (yes SEVEN), have the proper names of people in the threads title. Somethings gotta give here.. You can't tell me that people in Somerset are using that many WiFi connections. Hell, my cell phone even has trouble getting a signal here, ROFLMAO!!

Tell me when this thread is updated:
