Hi there,

Topix Terms of Service states that you may not: "forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any Content transmitted through the Service;"

That would include using proxy servers to disguise where your posts originate. Users who make use of proxy servers may have their content deleted or their user banned.

For the average PC user does a proxy server add a layer of security when using hotspots ?

Hi there,

Nope, it sure doesn't. It is also a violation of our Terms of Service, as you can see above.

On our county topix forum. There are about 10 people claiming to use a proxy server to report abuse like a thousand times. To end up getting a comment or thread removed. Is that okay to do? Do you understand what I am asking because I am computer illiterate. They basically are "incharge" of what we are allowed to write about. If they don't agree with the content. They are some how casting a thousand fake report abuses causing Topix to delete the thread and such. Any info. Is this legal?

Then how come one of your people, Bill, is one of the biggest trolls on Topix,(especially on the Beatles forum) and uses a proxy ip changer all of the time?
( http://www.topix.com/forum/who/the-beatles )

As well as doing these things, he has ad his own posts removed (as innocuous as the posts might have been) to hide the evidence. He has harassed posters, and drove mostly all of them off.

Say whatever you want about me, you aught to look into this, if you don't already know about this.

I admit to being a free spirit, but I am not employed by Topix. I don't think having someone employed by you, "going off the reservation" is a good way to run things, especially when great posters like "Greg" (from Greece) were literally attacked bu "Bill" using his IP changer, and ran off. A truly great knowledgeable, and intelligent person he is, will be sorely missed. And for what ..... because Bill has a little-man complex?

You need to look into this, and even make a clean-sweep if you have to. This once great forum has become a battleground for childish salvos and broad denials by "your Boy", if he is a boy at all.

Sorry for a few "typos".

I make you this promise, if you look into this and correct the "inside problem" and restore the Beatles forum to it's onetime greatness, you can count on me to follow Topix rules to the "T".

It is an opinion by many, that by keeping an ongoing controversy, it is better for the business of keeping Topix going.

I say, you drive off posters, you accomplish nothing. If you employ people that make you look bad, THIS BAD publicity doesn't help you.

California immigration reform has multiple posters using proxies to harass others users. Couple of them do get banned but return with a different account. infact some of them are banned more than 8 times and still able to post with a different account.

Yep, that is what several of the posters have done many times and yes, they use the the anonymous proxy server to try and get out of bannings too. It is too bad that the modertors do not pick up on those facts.

Funny how Rose is laughing at this topic and what other posters have been doing! Hopefully the moderators will see it as there are multiple violations of the TOS by them, right?

The anonymous proxy server posters have done more nastiness using their anonymous proxy server to harass the posters that don't agree with them!

Deleting just treats the symptom and not the disease. This is what our troll wants. Any attention he/she can get; especially from topix. The troll is human though, you cut it, it bleeds just like anyone else.

For her is no problem as she posted on other thread, her account get banned not the computer/isp. and she can come back with a different name, which she has done it multiple times.
