Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Story Chat was created as a forum for our viewers/users to share their thoughts and exchange meaningful ideas and opinions about news stories and issues affecting our community. Much of the feedback and discussion has been good. Unfortunately, some people have used this forum to spread racist, vile, indecent, obscene and inappropriate material. While we recognize that everyone is entitled to their opinions and thoughts, Story Chat was never intended as a forum to spread hateful and hurtful messages. After much debate and thoughtful consideration we have chosen to take Story Chat down until such time that we are able to provide a better mechanism for the respectful exchange of ideas. We look forward to bringing back a better Story Chat in the very near future.
Once again, thank for your note and thanks for using 9NEWS.com
Thanks for the info..

I wonder what a "better story chat" would look like? Probably a moderated forum where the thought police would review and approve each post before it's put online. No thanks!

It's ok, you can still post in topix at least. I'll just have to take my verbal assault to a national level in the meantime ;) I really like seeing all different views on the various stories and the chance to show others another viewpoint they might not have thought about.

I am saddened by this. I emailed 9news at [email protected] & have yet to receive a response. Oh well, I guess I will have to see you all here & there. Captain, CO Rick GSXR Chick, Raspberry, Denverguy, Kaelynn, wow, what friends I have made here. As for aoi, YOUR the reason they are taking it down. I have flagged your ignorant racist butt.

Something like this..

I think if we don't constantly use profanity, bash a races, etc. then it wouldn't be an issue. The fact that there is debate about issues isn't the issue, it is the words used to debate those issues. I don't want my thoughts monitored by the thought police, but people like aoi are the reason its being taken down.

A system that requires login (ie, no anonymous posts) would go a long way to fix the problem.. then the problem posters could be banned. Of course, they'd come back with a different name, but maybe they'd give up after being banned a few times?

I just tried to go onto topix and see how hard it is to find the story I'm looking for to discuss. Sometimes it's readily available, and other times I can't find it at all. It's not going to be worth the effort. I started posting on the 9News forums, because I've watched their news for years, and the stories were readily available to click on and discuss with other viewers. Posters like Denver (he' changing his post name continually throughout a post), who constantly insult people, and so many others who can't put the racist card down have just ruined it for the rest of us. This is the same thing I was debating a few days ago on the story about the kid who got tased for being disruptive at that Kerry event. An abuse of privileges by a few, will cause those same things to be restricted for the rest of us. It's been nice chatting with you folks. I doubt I'll see any replies to this, because I only found it by luck in the first place. I too thought the website was having difficulties. So long fellow debaters! I've had some good ones with some of you.

Quite honostly, I am surprised they didn't take this down months ago-especially in May! It was very racially heated on BOTH sides. It's not fair to those of us appreciate this.

The topix will all still be there won't they? This forum is actually done by kusa Denver. But if not then yeah, we'll make up our own topics. We don't have to go anywhere just because 9News doesn't want to be involved.

It's easy to ban a IP address and or email associated with an account.
Policing the Internet is a dicey issue...

Im sure that would help as long as they didnt take it too far. I just worry that they will censor things too much now.

You have to go to a specific spot, ie.kusaDenver. Topix is county-wide. If you just go to Topix you will have links to every forum in the country. To get here you go to http://www.topix.com/forum/source/kusa
