I've said it before, and I'll say it again for anyone that has not yet heard ...

See what garbage just keeps circulating?

Does a.n.y.o.n.e out there see how much hate, disrespect and meaningless crap goes on TOPIX?

Doesn't anyone else want to see this website change, for the better??

Please, Give me one good purpose for this stupid website, anyone?? WTF is it going to take to see change? A suicide? Is it really going to have to cross the line THAT far before it changes?

I can not be the only one who wants to vomit when I read some of the things people post behind anonymity. We live in 2013 where just about anything is possible. Let's be the change.

Start reporting abuse when you see the hatefilled remarks. Defend another person that may or may not be able to get on TOPIX and defend themselves. Be kinder to people!! I'm not going to go away, because I believe change can come as long as we don't just sit back and allow this to continue.

no, it really is not that simple.

It's not ok, the things that get posted on this website.

You must have missed somethings along the way, otherwise you'd understand.

Adults post garbage about eachother. Hateful, sometimes untrue garbage just because they can say whatever the hell they want. Children's names, have been drug through the topix mud. People that have passed get drug through the mud. Businesses, families, people's lives are not for the people of this website to write garbage about. No one is held accountable for the crap posted, people say the meanest things when they believe no one is "looking" at them.

Teenagers, have been to this website. Throwing other teens under the bus, teachers and so on. If the adults of this website aren't acting like decent people, how do we expect children to?

Is it really fair to have an anonymous public lynching? Is it really fair to allow strangers to comment on another person's life just because someone else decided to post?

People can come on this website, and pretend to be 35 different people if they'd like.

Many lives have been hurt by this website (believe it or not), and without change, many more will be affected.

Give me one good purpose for topix, please. I'll give you 10 negatives about topix in response.

I am tired of feeling like the only person that thinks it's not right, the things that sometimes get posted.

618 always, you are not alone. I too have reported NUMOROUS posts and threads that were hateful and bashing. I hate what this world has come to. I will continue to have threads removed as well. I will never understand the benefit of ripping someone apart by saying mean things.
I've always told my kids, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. You never know when you may break the camels back, and someone may be at their wits end and just end their life. I'd rather be known for saving someone's life, and being supportive than to be the cause for someone to commit suicide. It is sad. And, Karma will come back and slap the haters right in the face. Till then....I pray for the people who are bashed.
I LOVE YOU

Ask any one of the people that advertized their business on this website and see how that turned out for them.

You really think ANY of your old friends, family or loved ones want to be posted on topix so others can bash them?? have you seen how those threads turn out?!! Facebook, twitter, google ect, all better options than Topix for this purpose.

Again, better places online to find and follow up on a job.(and no one has to worry about the jerk that will trash the business)

Yeah sure, except it always turns into a game of kindergarten telephone. By the time the thread gets through one page of "current events", the truth gets so skewed and twisted. Most likely someone is at the root of the discussion, and most likely it turns ugly.(not most likely, always. Not sure if there has EVER been a thread or two that didn't have some bit of ugliness. If there is, kudos for that one or two).

Sure, until it turns ugly and involves family members and/or lies.

I would never argue that this isn't a great resource to locate children. However, with ALL of the social media, radio and tv, text alerts (they do send them directly to your cell phone!).. I don't believe keeping topix around for this cause is enough. I'm positive amber alerts would not honestly be affected if topix was gone.
