Take A Look Into Topix - Mass Bullying Across Thousands Of Small US Towns

Feb 8, 2013 Full story: Silicon Valley Watcher 563

My name is Virginia Olive Hoge and I am in the strange and fated position of being one of the first people who noticed that something very alarming was happening on Topix.com. Over three and a half years ago, I noticed how it was being used as a vehicle for slander, to batter people online.

In the article, I tell how I was dragged onto Topix by local trolls doing the same attack thread slander I found out was all over Topix.
If that bugs you so much, the truth about how I got here, what can I do about that.
I'm not saying you weren't bullied in your local board, I have no way of knowing. But perhaps you had a huge overreaction to it and that resulted in the aggressive bossiness and scolding I've seen you do, on Top Stories, and later on Offbeat. I don't know about here, but I was FLOORED that Kevin is no longer your ally, so I assume he finally saw it, too. It irritates the hell out of folks, and you've said some things to folks that you had no idea how outrageous it was because you butted in and ASSumed you could read the situation like a Dr. Phil/Sylvia Browne hybrid, when you didn't know jack.

Yes, but I hate climbing them. They are tricky and you have to climb them using different techniques than you would a regular shade tree. Plus you enconter all sorts of critters living in the dead fronds like snakes, bees, geckos etc.
Yes! We have woodpeckers here that live in the Palm Trees, the burrow holes in them for nests. At night, the bats fly into the palm leaves.

I like watching the utility workers climb them, they wear shoes with spikes on them.

^^^ Still attacking me, without any proof. You are trolling me.

Also, I see you do not care for Ferrerman. The most commenting I did on Offbeat, was on the Obama thread with him. Are you trolling me for my politics?

Not true.

And the imitator, name-changer, is doing her usual switching of names and IP's to make it look like she is more than one poster.

Now go play Tom some more, sicko.
yes fat

You know when I was commenting on the Obama thread on Offbeat, I had some conservative posters PM me, thanking me for my input. I have no problem with conservatives who have humanity, I respect different political opinions.

That's what political argument should be, the giving of opinions, the right to them. Mutual respect.

Ginny, I'm telling you the truth about what I see because you need to hear it. There's a reason you don't remember me, because I've never attacked you. Go look at our exchanges on the Obama thread,(YOU do it, I'm a busy woman and it's YOU that needs the proof, not me.), I am respectful to you even though politically we are night and day. I have never trolled Fman in any form. We have had times where we got along, and times where we haven't. Between this profile, my original PaisleyPosey profile, and the Hiawadda profile, I have over 50,000 posts on topix. Since I tell you the truth about what happened and what my intent is, and it's still not enough for you, then you google it and get the proof. Show me to be a liar.
I've mostly ignored you, even when you offended me by your treatment of others, because part of my pities you. I think you're sincere. I really don't think you INTEND to come across as you do. You've declared EVERYONE else's on earth view of you, invalid. You're hearing it now from a stranger who has never disrespected you before, has no dog in this fight, has no idea WTH is going on in this feckaroo of a catfight in this forum, I just came to click the message envelope on Top Mod 8's profile in that thread, lol. I have no idea who is who, right, wrong, etc.
I don't think it's okay for someone to antagonize you just for kicks. I don't think it's okay for someone to take and photoshop your vids, I don't think you behavior gives anyone a free pass for abuse. But you don't seem to know the difference between that trolling and folks trying to talk to you.
You don't have to trust strangers, I think if you simply honestly asked yourself,'What is my own role in my victimization?' And put those glasses on, you'd get the truth from someone you could trust, yourself. Best of luck to you. I am done with this attempt, not down to argue with you---I'm no masochist, lol.

Paisley's sad, anti-Ferrerman sentiment is the product of her environment. Plus, she's kinda crazy. She runs with a bad crowd of trolls but, perhaps worse, believes that the gubmint controls the weather. When you buy into that, the leap to Ferrerman being "fat" is one small step for troll kind.

You cannot put yourself in my shoes, and imagine the trolling I have faced here, face right up to today.

Instead, you are attacking me, when you had plenty of other chances, like saying something on the thread you are talking about, but won't post a link to.

I fight back, always have. I comment as myself, I have accountability for what I post. I did so in reaction, the the initial grey box below-the-belt attack threads that brought me here, the cowardice in them.

I do not at all, ask that anyone else here do that, but that is what I have done.

But yes, lets end this. have a great rest of your day Paisley. Enjoy it.

Its very clickish on Offbeat, I don't comment there enough to know who is in what clique.

CLIQUEish indeed! Trolling has ruined Offbeat. That's why they're coming here, where trolls have long since ruined this forum so, no one will notice. A dumb plan but, a plan nonetheless.

I never trolled Offbeat with vulgar perversions, I have commented there occasionally, and did most of my commenting there on the Obama thread. why all this finger-pointing, and as a grey box coward no less?

Wahhhh, wahhh, wahhh. non-stop crying and trolling, coward.

There are still some great threads there, some really funny ones to comment on and some great other threads too. I have always liked the Interesting Quotes thread there, for instance.

These things run in cycles, I guess. There's always going to be a group that 'takes over' a forum and wants to try and run things. Can't spell 'ruin' without 'run'!
