Ihave been watching this site for awhile now and enough is enough!!!!!!!!!! I talked to my out-of-town lawyer and inquired what I(WE) can do about shutting this site down and finding out who these low life's are, this site is based out of Palo Alto CA. and I (WE) need to get a lawyer from Ca.to subpenia the company behind Topix and give us the names behind these cowards using user names to hide behind, after researching this, it can and has been done before. I want to expose the people who are writing these derogatory comments against innocent people. I will need the help of the good people of this community. I am in the process of finding out how to setup a trust account and monitored by a lawyer of someone along that line for people to donate to this cause. Would be nice for a local firm to help out with this cause pro-bono (THE LAWYER OR FIRM) WOULD BECOME HOMETOWN HEROS!!!!!!!!!! I will create a new email account soley for this crusade and will post it ASAP. I am open to constructive suggestions and if you want to join this cause, please email me. If any trash emails come through to this email, it will be compiled to be used against you in the court of law. Dont test me!!!!!!!!!!

as far as topics about restuarants and business places I think that it is fine because its every ones right to give thier opion on that, but I DO NOT like the fact that poeple's names are being brought up! It's wrong and so yes I agree!! As long as they are going to continue to bring up names on here then we really can't have a topic about things like restuarants and business!!

It is a shame we cant have a site for restuarants reviews and what not, a few bad ruin it for the whole good. You wouldnt happen to be a lawyer stepping forward to volunteer? lol Thank You for the words of support, if these bad guys havent hurt you yet, its just a matter of time before they need new meat and wont stop until they offend everyone. We shouldnt have to monitor this trash daily to make sure your "number" isnt up or up again. thanks again. Your topix friend.

Thinking of placing a blind ad in the paper asking for supporters, maybe someone with resources will step up to the plate. What do think about that idea?

Well first of all union city is not the only place that uses this... It is nation wide... They are not gonna pay this site no mind in a court of law... This site is opinion based anyway... They really cant prove anything cause people can change their ip adresses... I mean you would have to do like a catch a predator type thing... This site can be sad at times but hey it also can be good... We all just have to learn to ingore things... I mean you can try but you will never get rid of the internet troll.. They are cruel and we always have to put up with them...

It sounds like someone doesn't like what they have been reading on local topix! While it is true no one should post names of people in a demeaning manner, there are many issues which can be discussed in a civil manner which are very helpful and interesting to read. That is what freedom of speech is about.

You idiots are so entertaining. So you got your feelings hurt , cause somebody talked about you. booo fuc king hoooo! FREEDOM OF SPEECH BITCHES!!! You may censor the lil local paper with you whinny a$$ but this website is WWW. Just think of all the places on the internet people talk about you. lets just shut down the internet. It sure is funny you want to shut down the very place that you are soliciting for your cause.
There is a word for your kind , but I may make you cry, so I wont use it. Now pay that $25.00 abuse fee and get this removed. I love making topix rich.
Whatever

Oh while your at it, why not hire monitors to stalk the aisles at walmart, the stools at local bars and the pews in the churches. Everything that is posted here started somewhere else. You think you're going to stop anything by trying to do away with topics? lol
I agree, its sad the way people feel it necessary to get on here and post other peoples' business without regard to the feelings of the innocent family and friends although usually it proves to be true. Sad that people forget to look at there own skeletons before judging someone else. Sadder still is someone trying to control peoples freedom of speech, which is what you are wanting to do.
As one person stated, this thing is nation wide. You think its bad on UC site, try looking at Dyersburg, Ripley even the small town of Hornbeak then get over it, forget it.

I may not agree with bashing or starting rumors of innocent people just going about their daily lives, but If your in the news or out doing things illegally or stupid, I believe we should have a place to express our concerns or comments. Also the Constitution gives us this right, whether you like it or not.
"Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Why is it that everyone on here is a coward for using user names but here u are hiding behind one? Freedom of speech, ever heard of it? Sounds like you got your feelings hurt but was whatever was posted true? No lawyer can do a thing about someones opinion or saying something about someone that was absolutely true.

its just that most of it isnt true, should we have to worry about our hair being fixed to run to the store for a loaf of bread, lets spread peace, there is too much HATE in this world, lets all be happy, there are too many problems in the world to spread rumors about your neighbor.

I'm not even sure what the point of this is

if I'm not mistaken, this site is here for a few reasons:

linking local news stories and sharing comments (opinions) on the stories

asking local advice on finding services (such as dentist, plumbers, hairdressers, etc.)

discussing eateries - as in what place makes a good burger, what place has hair in the soup, and what place has good service.

I don't think it was intended for rampant gossip. All the who's doing who with whose wife. As long as no crime is being commuted the 'outting' might be best served for holding onto until you sit in the pew on Sunday. If there is a crime/threat of one, by all means, alert the community. Such is the case with the scumbag who was released from jail, posted the Craigslist ads, joined myspace against his sex offender registry terms, and was arrested. I'm glad that was posted! He's back where he belongs because of that.

I agree. Your assessment is dead on. We can't justify throwing out the baby with the bath water. Most people are smart enough to sift through the information posted here and distinguish between fact and gossip. It seems to me, if you are living like you are supposed to and/or you are running your place of business in an ethical, honest manner with good customer service, you shouldn't have any reason to fear public comments. Only those who know they have something to hide fear the light. Topix is a good source of instant information when there is an emergency or an urgent newsworthy event and we can't wait for the media outlets to catch up to us. We shouldn't have to sacrifice this benefit to the community because some shabby person or business gets called out for poor behavior. Bad behavior comes with the appropriate bad consequences....it's called "life".
