I have been reading topix for a while my question is why everyone thinks topix is for bashing, I have read other topix and for the most part they are informative with very little gossip. Don"t you realize that not only does this make the person doing the bashing look bad but it makes willow springs look bad. I realize willow is a town with problems but if all the people bashing it would try to solve the problems what a difference it would make in willow. Who cares who sleeps with who and does drugs that is a personal matter and should not be aired. Almost all the businesses in willow have been bashed just be thankful that they are here. If all the effort expended on gossip was instead used to help willow what a difference it would make. lets get topix back on track and start helping instead of hurting.

Yes, Topix can become a powerful and helpful force in the community rather than an embarrassment if people want it to be. In the past, there have been some terrific postings, for instance on the history of the town and memories of things past,but the majority are just slime bashing of other people and businesses.

How about if folks give negativity, profanity, and libel and rest and concentrate on information that is helpful and interesting for a change.

There will always be small minds and small heart in small towns. Until the hate and the want to tear someone down goes away, there are those who like to destroy or give back what was done to them. In small towns everyone knows everyones business it's been like this for a long time look back through history. I'll get off the soap box now.

I agree about small towns but still if all those that bash are that unhappy then why do they shop here or even live here for that matter. Willow needs help and I for one would like to see willow a thriving town again. SO COME ON BASHERS BE CONSTRUCTIVE NOT DESTRUCTIVE

I realize that this is an old thread, but .... One reason for all the bashing is that in small towns the people on Topix (and similar forums) are the unemployed people with nothing better to do. Face it, someone who works 40 hrs/wk, and is married with a family does not have that much spare time to do a lot of negative posting.

I read a lot of post from small rural towns as I'm looking for a place to retire to in a few years. I normally check Topix, but get more relevant information from sites like www.city-data.com/city/Willow-Springs-Missour... or the Chamber of Commerce and local newspapers.

But Glory is correct in that when most of the post are negative, it leaves a negative impression about the town on casual web visitors.
