Why the nice people forum failed

I suspected it would only be a matter of time, until the nice people forum devolved into the typical Topix repetitive drivel.

And that's ok.

Folks can post whatever they want on Topix and even to the most casual observer it is obvious people prefer conflict and insult.

An that's ok.

You may come onto Topix to complain about the lack of civility but know you are to blame even if you do not have a feud with someone here. It is obvious that A dislikes B and B reciprocates, maybe they both feel justified as the legitimate victim of the other and must fight to "defend" themselves. The problem is C-D-E- and F, choose sides and comment. Even if C,D,E, and F never comment directly to A and B , A and B receive exquisite tingly pleasure merely at being mentioned as an object of attention by the others. It is because the rest can not contain themselves and reward the trolls and fighters, that Topix will remain that way.

And that's ok.

Topix likes the traffic, they want to point out the number hits they receive to their advertisers. Advertisers don't care about content only quantity of visitors. That is the business model. There is a reason The Jerry Springer Show is still in syndication.

And that's ok.

When you complain about it just know you are the cause. Go ahead and complain, go ahead and troll. It's all good. It is what it is and it is pointless to try to tell others what to do and frankly quite boring. So have at it Topix posters your antics entertain me when I've nothing more productive to attend to.

Being nice isn't always fun. You have to be able to b!t2h and grip somewhere. You can't at home or your in trouble.

Hi Carl, It is topix. I left because of the fighting. I am hoping things have changed. I think people like to fight because no one knows who they are so they may act out on here.

I know it is and that is to bad. This could be a nice place to meet people but I am afraid to meet anyone. Some are nice one day and mean the next. I have been gone for awhile and now I have no idea who is mad at who anymore. I have tried to say hi at some places on my tracker but everyone is gone or they are fighting.

There are some that are going to fight no matter what. They have been fighting for years. Nothing changes in topixland.
