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

There are 562 comments on the Silicon Valley Watcher story from Feb 8, 2013, titled Take A Look Into Topix - Mass Bullying Across Thousands Of Small US Towns. In it, Silicon Valley Watcher reports that:

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.

I don't tend to bother much with IT, plus too much real life stuff keeps me from posting very much some days.....like today.

Yes you did, are you blind or delusional?
Stalker!!! You openly stalk me and bully me, then sit here and act like you have any credibility.

You follow me so closely, you posted this thread:

http://www.topix.com/forum/news/internet-trol...

You have no credibility and what you have done here with you many socks, is horrible. So attacking me here, is just further proof of your stalking and bullying.

You came out early stalker, as your Tom Pappas sock, crying as usual about being stalked, while your stalking is perfectly clear.

I don't remember that, Ginny. Not to say it didn't happen, but I just don't remember.

That is the danger of having a life, it certainly constrains one's Topix time. It is sad because Topix is so so so important.
Today mine is all about paperwork. Topix sounds like more fun, but I need to get back to it.

Happy Weekend, everyone!

Yes, and you proved it all by your lonesome.

You have no credibility, you are one of the worst trolls here, so sitting here, trolling me on this thread, is senseless.

For what? How come you come here attacking me then won't tell me what and where what I did offended you? You won't post any link, I do not remember the incident.
If it happened, it clearly ended quickly and was not memorable. But you don't mind making all kinds of assumptions about me, and have been.
Why would I post a link to where a horrendous troll (who is still around) got a bunch of encouragement and delight out of you....so you can do it some more? Many folks told you in plain english what the deal was, and you labeled some of the most bully-victimized folks on topix,'bullies'. It was unbelievable. You didn't listen or understand then, why on earth with you demonstrating the same short-sightedness would you get it, now? Nope.
It really happened, and it's long over. But what I witnessed at that time was very pertinent to the things you claim in the article you wrote here, hence it came to my mind. It's that simple.
Sometimes folks aren't hating on you Ginny, sometimes they're just telling the truth. I don't hate you, or even know you well enough to dislike you. And I don't wish any ill on you at all. But I am brutally honest, and if the reaction you get from folks EVERYWHERE you post is ever gonna change, you'll have to be brutally honest with yourself, too.
Good luck.

Morning Hegel - a happy weekend to you too (and Bill 111 and CarlBad). Just got back from the vet. Our poor kitty may be in trouble. Either the allergy has got him down or it's the other kitty downfalls kidney failure/diabetes. Here's to hoping my weekend (and my cat's) comes out roses and catnip.

I attacked the local bullies for awhile.
But that kind never put their names out there
b/c they don't want to be criticized for their RL
mistakes.(the way they criticize others)
But just attacking random anonymous ppl got real
old real quick.
Bottom line is the local boards are boring.
What I see all the time on the local boards, are innocent people being slandered by their real names, women being told they have AIDS, are ho's, the works. Women and men, slandered on their local boards.

I have seen people post, about the consequences of this. I recently saw a poster post, that his brother was called gay and slandered on his hometown forum, his brother lost his job, his girlfriend and friends. The guy's life was severely affected.

To prove what you are saying about me, otherwise its just slander.

Give me proof, or you are just trolling me. What thread, what was the name of the troll?

You have admitted that I didn't even know you, you keep bashing me when we never even spoke before.

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.

How old are you? Have you been checked for demantia or Alzheimer's? Are you daft?
We've talked plenty on Offbeat, especially on the 'Would you Re-Elect Obama?' thread.
AGAIN; call it what you want, you're not Adam and you don't get to name everything, lol. I could care less what you think it is. I already believe your thinking and perceptions to be severely compromised. They drowned in that river in Egypt.
