I have sent many emails to topix in the past 6 weeks to remove a deflamatory post and it's still there, what else can I do?

Emails are no longer the preferred way of communicating with the Mods. Use the feedback form by clicking the "Send us your feedback" link right under the comment box. You might also try putting a link to the offending post here--Topix Ed or Top Mod 5 might take the time to explain why the post remains if they think it would interest to community of editors.

Please not that this forum was set up to serve that community. If you are an editor, you will get more attention if you log on before you post here. If you are not an editor, you could be ignored altogether.

Why was the thread on2~Beatification of Enoch Powell " removed? Waht is the topix policy? I believed that the threads once editted would remain forever.

Sometimes threads that are deleted from on forum continue to run on others--it's just a matter of being savvy enough to find them. In this case, the thread is still running on the Asae, Japan forum:

I did manage to find it yesterday. Anyhow , thanks. However, I cannot see what relevance the thread would have for Japan or those interested in Japanesse matters!

There must have been a mention of the Japanese town somewhere in the article that caused the Topix software to include in the list of related topix. It's a mystery to me. But it is amusing to watch writer balst other users for intruding in their forum, completely unaware of how often Topix threads are shared.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
