Oh sure I know what tongue-in-cheek means. You do too cause you lie right through your teeth to get the two of them to meet! Hahaha!

There now, is that lightened up enough for ya?

Sure you've been over there in the Wounded-Knee South Dakota strings trying to spread your spam but you never moderated, monitored, mediated, meandered, mitigated or anything otherwise close. Not even tongue-in-cheek, dear boy.

I suspected it, but it was confirmed when TM5 basically had to come into one of the literally dozens of "KICK BRASS is the Irvine Topix Moderator" threads to say that no, I'm not, and no, they don't hire random locals to be mods. Although it was freaking hilarious when I'd report a thread about me and it would coincidentally get deleted by a very active mod in under fifteen minutes after the first post was made.
Yeah KB, I remember when you had all those posts in the River City, lol.

Gosh that's been what, a coupla years now?

As I remember, you're a fellow EKU alumnus??

Somerset is indeed kinda unique, not a lot of local posters, mostly registered posters like ourselves.

I've noticed in Irvine that's not the case. A LOT of local gossip on that site.

If there's no local mods then there is someone in law enforcement deleting posts. Some forums have zero oversight. Others, like Somerset have some moron reporting every other post that's put up.

The thing that has ruined Somerset topix is when smart posters spend 5 or 10 minutes putting together a well thought out post just to have some dipSh!+ report or delete it because they didn't agree or didn't like the tone.

Two years ago you could get some good info and opinions on here. Alot of activity with supporting links. Now you've got a bunch of gamers telling everyone to lighten up.

I've seen cut and pastes from topix TOS deleted.

Topix could have been a good source for local info and discussion, but someone has worked to make sure that didn't happen.

That's one of the clues that it isn't Topix Mods over in CA censoring this board. Why would they delete a post containing their own Terms of Service? I've seen it happen myself.

Now that's their own job posting. You think a TopMod would erase this post? Of course not, but I bet it's gone pretty quick once the local mod sees it.

On top of the game players and trolls, they now have "sponsored" threads or advertising disguised as discussion topics that stay at the top of the queue. Gives you a pretty clear indication of where Topix is headed.

At least you spelled it correctly, the vast majority of the people on these sites spell it 'looser', lol.

I never get warnings, though I never attempt to post profanity.

KIA, when you say you get warnings, are they actual messages in your inbox addressed from someone, or is it the autofilter that says "Be nice" when you hit submit on a post, forcing you to hit submit a second time?
