Don't look safe or fun to me much. Some is funny, but some is scarey.

I'd not recommend many to dare step in these gates of hail unless they know how to burn gracefully under pressure.

This might help ease your burn burrs.

Looks like we are all wearing nearly duplicate suits and may even appear we are here talking to ourselves. Imagine that!

This one was onto something. http://open.salon.com/blog/virginia888/2014/0...

Tolles links with political stances, facebook and who speculates what.
It's long been said Topix has paid, and I suspect voluntary trolls and personal 'friends' of staff . This is quite obvious to anyone who has ever been trolled and used the feedback only to find themselves being removed and their troll continuing to make numerous clone and sock accounts which rarely get banned and certainly never IP banned. The most that generally happens is their posts and on occasion threads are removed and this is only after attention is drawn to them for which Topix may be liable.
Withdrawing the Topix game allowed not only for freed up webspace for advertising with the continuation of data selling {note the loading info when on a slow connection} but it also allowed for what the trolls wanted, a disbanding of the game playing posters who presented a semi-united front with a policy of ignore. It also allowed the discontinuation of the pesky {pesky to certain iconher trolls} of the props feature. Icons are used to identify posters as legitimate troll targets or as 'friendlies'.

Check her blogs about Topix. She doesn't have it all and what she does have is not 100% but she is obviously onto something else she would never have been banned. Having read the vast majority of her posts I can say she was never a troll to other real posters.

Brilliant Post !!!!

Topix doesn't like those observant enough to see what's actually going on .. behind the scenes. To IP ban those that have not come close to doing the things some do is retardation (pardon that word) at it's worst.

It's all about TRolles bottom .. that would be $$$s.

.. and how long before this discussion goes poof? I think it's time TOPIX hires new Mods and trolls and get's rid of the old birds that have outworn their welcome .. long ago.

.. and hiring some new writers and editors would be beneficial as well. j/s

Happy Days Tolles and Topix .. let us not forget the Trolls. Chris believes in freedom of speech .. only he's not clear what it really means to him.

"she doesn't have it all"

yes, she was born with a hole in her marble bag...

"what she does have is not 100%"

no, she is 100% insane

her blog also discribes how the NSA is spying on her with the help of Topix corp.

and as for the rest of your long winded drivil, if you are trolled, and feel violated, that only means you were more than likely given an insult in reply to your insult, which hurt you badly, and your insult was as weak and lame as this post

also, you are technicall ignorant, if you are saying that Topix is using what they are doing, trying to get as much $$$$$ from each and every page you click, just to gain information, like ginny says to give to the NSA and NASA, then you are as completely NUTS as she is

Try disabling the flash player and clearing your cashe every time

its not a conspiricy, its your ignorance

hug for you .. you offer up a very good and thought provoking opinion. i also saw your words here and i agree with much of what you say. plz keep sharing with 'us' who really would benefit knowing and everyone knows that to be fact.

i would challenge anyone to tell me that everyone who come on line in this environment should
be made aware of .... you fill in the blank cause you know what i mean. so many are accused of being incoherent when those watching see the action going on. Distractions .. repeat and offender .. hahaha .. isn't this fun?

where is that pale flower now .. dang gurl is driving me badchitboygrl crazy

Trolling 101,

If you resort to correcting someones spelling failures,

You have already lost, and have proven your lameness.

Because no one cares, and you understood the misspelled words anyway.
