the person posting those things has the same constitutional right to freedom of speech as you do. Get over it. get a life. theres nothing you can do about it. Stop your sniveling and move on. you bring it on yourself with your whinning. you sound worse that a little kid. get over it.

Yes, he has the constitutional right to freedom of speech, but if the threads he posts violate the TOS, he should be banned. And this is the TOS he violated........

In addition, you agree to NOT use the Service to:

1. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, torturous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;


Those threads were vulgar, obscene, hateful, and in some instances racially objectionable. So you get over it!

I clicked on the links which took me directly to the forum listings, so it appears that the posts have been removed. What a pain to have to send 52 permalinks to Topix for TOS violations. Some peeps just can't control themselves (and their comments) to line up with the guidelines.

Topix appears to save banning for chronic, long-term violators, however. Best of luck on your News page.

Really freedom of speech? Actually if he goes far it's hate speech. You gotta follow rules online just like in real-life if you can't stay away then ! Some people like trolls are simply idiots or has serious issues. Trolls scream how they have freedom of speech etc. Realty is they post things that are not nice it's hate about people and the world. These people are coward in real-life. Most have been caught making certain threats online. We need to keep our eyes open & start worrying about some of these trolls. These people have serious issues & not the brightest people in the world. Trolling is mostly in teens. Adults do it also. They are just not bullies. Most turn out to be stalkers and/or predators online. These are two trolls everyone needs to watch for here's how you can tell they are trolls by what they just post online. Simple things . These guys are believed to be one guy actually. Different accounts banned ip's some accounts they no longer have. Both are 51 yrs of age. They have aol accounts & youtube etc. Both write hate messages & stalk women & kids online. More then one person. They follow different users around etc. I think myself that it's the same person. Since they block there ip's they know there in trouble by law enforcement and online users . So they think they can't be traced since there ip's are blocked. They can run but can't hide. Police will catch them hiding behind a computer like a coward.(trolls)! This guy is very unstable. Please be careful if you see him online anywhere. He say's he's gayone minute. This person is not gay. Fact he hates on gays online. If he was he would not hate on gays & different races etc. There are alot of the same things in these accounts & postings as well as age.

This was written by kim litton:

Because of my experiences as a pastor's wife, I was drawn to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright story early in the presidential campaign. I researched the topic and wrote the article a few days before coverage of the pastor went mainstream. Minutes after publishing the piece, comments, death threats and personal messages started flooding in. Soon a full-fledged war was underway between the sensible and the senseless. People took sides, dug in their heels, and refused to back down. Six hundred or so comments later, my article looked like a battleground and I had acquired my first cyberstalker.

Trash talking flamers and psycho trolls

Blog trolls, kooks, flamers, and cyberstalkers are only a few of the terms used to describe individuals who love to make other people's online experience a living hell. The Urban Dictionary defines a "blog troll" as,

"A depraved individual who sits in front of a computer all day and posts flames of an idiotic or pseudo-intellectual nature on public forums and private websites. Many of these people actually become emotional about what is said on the afore-said mediums and feel it is their duty to punish those who disagree with them."

Psycho trolls and other Internet crazies love to argue, and they really don't care what they argue about. They live to start trouble and make people feel uncomfortable.

Dealing with online harassment and threats

According to 2008 WHOA (Working to Halt Online Abuse) statistics, email was the number one method Internet stalkers used to harass their victims. WHOA resolved seventy five percent of the cases reported by contacting the ISP, web host or site moderator. In the cases they were unable to resolve, victims were referred to law enforcement or an attorney.

Even if a person seems fairly harmless, busy people don't want to waste time responding to unfruitful, stress-inducing arguments and debates. Most of us know how to avoid online hazards like viruses and spyware, but here are a few ways to keep Internet crazies at bay as well.

Just to let you know this person has many reports on them on alot of websites he was caught up in lying about things etc. That's not so bad it gets worse with this he claims it's okay for him to do these things and then one second it's all a lie. All though these net services have proof or they wouldn't cut his accounts or ban the videos. Nice try on lying though . That's why he has only 4 or 5 buddies total online . Most might be himself. We don't know some stuff as of right now. Still looking up things on this troll.

Here is why he was reported.

1. Stalking

2. Trolling

3. Harassment

4. Posting violent things

5. Racial stuff/Hate speech

Tip of the ice berg. No one knows where he's from. Because simply of writting on every state thing about stuff. So we don't know where he's from. He's trying to throw off people. Only few stupid people believe him & Try to ban good people who try to ban trolls. He accuses others of trolling only issue is they don't. And they don't have reports dating back to 3 -4 years ago on them.

New topix troll rachel g from texas. She rates comments poor and fights for hours at a time on topix things. I may contact texas law because she has also been harassing people and law enforcement on topix . She has dumb written all over her. She's new. I reported her of course topix still allows her to go on. If they look at her background it's not good. She's been in trouble many times and seems not to care.

She has no respect for any human being. Even people in uniform. I think she's just hateful and a bit nuts.
