Ok. So this will probably be taken down too but if say I get trashed or someone in my family gets trashed, how do I, or who do I call to get the thread taken off here?? I think this is a legit question. I'm sure you can go to the contact page and get the phone number but will they take it down or do you have to contact someone else?

I am on my way to work. I'll post this information later since it will take a few minutes to type in all the steps.

Even when you "flag" a thread, it will take 3 to 7 days for Topix to remove it for free.

You can pay $19.99 and have it removed in a few hours.

PAY to have it removed???? that is complete crap. When people are being bashed and businesses are being ruined. Then the person who is being rundown is the one who has to pay???? I am very angered by that

To have a post removed for free, follow the instructions below. It will take 3 to 7 days for Topix moderators to remove it.

At the top,right hand of each post is:
Judge it/ Report Abuse/ Reply.

1. Click on "Report Abuse"

A pop up box will appear.

2. Click on "Send Feedback"

A pop up box will appear.

3. On "Type of Feedback" choose from the drop down box.

I usually choose "Inappropriate Forum Post"

4. Fill in Name (Not required)

5. Fill in Phone Number (Not required)

6. Fill in Email Address (This is Required)

Topix will sent you a confirmation that they received you complaint.

7. Type in a reason for complaint.

I usually type in "Violation of Topix's Terms of Service."

8. Type in the numbers provided

9. Click on the Submit Button.

Yes, it unfortunate that the victim has to pay twice. First they are victimized by vicious lies and then they are victimized by having to pay to have the posts removed in a quick manner.

That is how Topix makes its money. It has advertisers.(Notice all the business to the right.) They also make $19.99 for each post that is removed.

People can contact their Tennessee Attorney General and complain about having to pay $19.99 to have offensive, libelous posts removed.

Several Attorney Generals have already petitioned Topix about they way Topix sways individuals to pay $19.99 to have posts removed.

Topix will remove posts for free, but they take their time. I can take up to 7 days for a post to be removed by the moderators.

Most people want a post removed more quicky; therefore, they pay $19.99.

Uh, hold the phone there. A lot of what is on here is not "vicious llies", but accurate information or opinions derived from personal experiences with some one or some business. If that is embarrassing, uncomfortable, or disconcerting to someone or some business, that doesn't qualify it as a lie. Most people or businesses who claim to be victims of Topix just don't like being exposed by the truth or don't want legitimate criticism of bad behavior to be seen by the public.

Why bother getting a thread taken down - it will only make a reappearance later.

scary just to think that if one person has for instance a bad experience say at a church they can get on here and write the preacher is a child molester or something.

How do you pay the 20 dollars to get the thread removed? What are the steps you take?
Also is it the whole thread or just a comment?

No one takes anything on here very seriously. No one with any sense, anyway. Think of it as an online Jerry Springer show, sans the class. Just drama, fueled by drama, breeding drama.

Take down my thread. The whole thing. It's shamefull. Please for my sake with my daughter. She would never understand. She is very private. I am telling you she would hate me forever. Please. I'm begging you. It is inoppropriet. The things people say on there are sickening and abusive. Please for my daughters sake and mine. There is a child involved that is innocent. This child does not need to ever here about this. Please be a good people and take down the whole thread. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I know right? We know the answer don't we? She wanted them to talk about someone else! I was going to try and help her myself until I actually wandered over to the forum and saw the thread myself. She wanted to drag someone through the mud so she started a thread but it turned on her.

Sorry Renee. You made your bed, you sleep in it now. If you can't take the heat you should stay off Topix.
