i think is not, see how this thread will last.
if you post statement that consider to be unpatriotic like mainstream media always said, it would not go long.
i see opinion like 'government are behind 9 11 event' is constant deleted.
you can bashing religion and their symbol here, but you cannot explain your faith.
it is obvious that topix is not bring people all around the world together with respect each other, but wan deviate further, and want us fighting each other with every single differences.

No doubt the drama of the boards pull in
lots of posters.
There is a 9/11 conspiracy thread on the
Aussie board that has thousands of posts and
ppl actually believe that the US was behind
it.......a really ridiculous idea in my opinion.
Our government is guilty of much but not that.

If we are busy fighting each other, then their big plan will succeed.
george carlin says is true, they want us keep busy fighting each other, they don't want the masses have critical mind.

I have been on the Topix boards for years now. I have never seen them take down posts for ANYTHING except making false accusations against someone and telling their REAL name, or OFF TOPIC posts.

After a thread has been up for a long time. some of the posts just fall off. Especially if it is a very long thread the first posts will disappear after a long time.

your explanation is helpful
i'm topix reader for not so long, recently i try to post and start the thread.
if that possible start thread consider to be OFF TOPIC.
cause 2 days ago i started the thread, and it's only take hours before they removed it, i see another thread with crazy or naughty or mean or provoke topic didn't remove.
that's why i see topix only want us fighting each other for every single little difference.
for example, african argue with their fellow african for their background.
i see it really silly and sad for the same moment

I wonder how long it will be before someone starts a protest thread and calls it something like "We're Not Gonna Post Here". Kinda like the movie "PCU", starring David Spade, that has a scene where there are a group of "protesters" all chanting and holding up signs stating that they are not gonna protest -- because the college dean outlawed protests.

Actually I think it's more of the same handful of people that I swear are being paid to discredit the US in trying to change others minds on what really happened, they are trying to plant seeds of doubt into minds of Americans to help their cause and slowly try and kill us inside out.

I'm not saying America is perfect because like all nations,we aren't. But there's no way our government would have done all that, NO WAY! there were even children in the bottom of the towers.

I speak of this because I myself have started over 4 American Soldier threads over the span of nearly 6 years here and every one of them have the same small group of hardcore Muslim terrorist extremist wannabee's and on every thread all they do is non stop hatred of America.

I can back that up with posts from guys who have been fighting them daily on those threads.

It truly is disgusting to see how TOPIX has allowed Free Speech in these particular threads for discussion. Disagree all you like about our government and their poor performance, but to spit on our VETs is just worst way to vent their dismay.
Many gave their very lives for this Country so we may enjoy the freedoms we do.
Exactly!

Even freedom of speech has its limits.

It is pretty sad some of the things they say to the Vets. I think a lot of people are just on here trying for shock value, and with the hundreds of thousands of other threads, surely they could find something or someone else to bash.

There has been much spoken of concerning Free Speech out here on TOPIX.
<quoted text>
I've been posting on TOPIX for nearly a year now. I know what the victims feel like. I am not a troll nor do I cyber bully anyone. I have however spoken out against others doing so, for all the good that does.
What astounds me is those that have been around TOPIX for years that still act like they can not avoid this. You can, by simply not responding to the cowards. It's difficult no doubt, but possible.
There truly should be a thread for discussion on all the occurences that can and will happen to some out here.
Free Speech on TOPIX is a JOKE. Tell me it's not.
I expect TOPIX to now silence my voice as well while allowing others theirs without restrictions.
There is not the free speech on Topix that they claim is here, and that is seen in their reaction to critics, the most suppressed free speech here, your many bannings attest to this. The huge trolling effort tolerated against myself does also.

Free speech includes criticism, along with brutal speech, but that is also an issue. If free speech leads to something as violent as death, destroys a life, then that intrudes on human rights, first and foremost, the right to life. The right to personal security.

So the owner has 27 Mod's to look out for his business interest...and some are biased, it is human nature after all. How do we know the balance of fair vs. biased?

I'm assuming you know what the word "speech" means but I doubt that you know what that word means in conjunction with the word "free". If you knew (and understood) those two concepts then you'd also know that "free speech" cannot be "abused". Or perhaps you don't know what the word "abuse" means?

So. Do you consider knowing that prisoners were being tortured at Abu Graib falling into the category you describe? How about the torture going on at Guantanamo? What about the pissing on dead Taliban in Afghanistan? The helicopter shooting of innocent civilians in Irak? Burning of the Koran in Afghanistan? The My Lai massacre in Vietnam?

Do you see "free speech" reveling those facts as a threat to that "personal security" you talk about?

What does that mean exactly? As you can see Force there is allowed many unpatriotic statements and they are all still out here. So again, I ask you - Is TOPIX BIASED out here.
My first response stands for itself. I am not convinced that Saya is right.

"Getting away with this"? With freedom of speech? Again I must ask you ... are you a supporter of Fascism?

The bottom line is that "Saya" is of the opinion that freedom of speech is not fully practiced on Topix, while "Reasonably" doesn't think it should be anyway.

CARL - You are a wooooozy and that doesn't need to be pointed out as you are OBVIOUS about it.

TOPIX NEEDS TO KEEP the good posters around.
I know DRAMA and SEX sells,,, but they could at least stop the DRUG SALES out here.
You are a trouble-maker who's taken your outright critisism of everyone who doesn't share your opinion to every thread you've laid your eyes upon. My hard point of view is exactly "my point of view" to the subject - without making personal insults out of hand. Insulting is your only M.O. and raison d'etre.

It's NOT just the GRAYBOXES getting away with this, but also long time profiled members as well. I'll get you some links to prove my point.
Thanks for making this thread, it's timing couldn't be better. Hope you come back again soon to add more for us as well.

"After a thread has been up for a long time. some of the posts just fall off. Especially if it is a very long thread the first posts will disappear after a long time."

i'm topix reader for not so long, maybe i saw post gone in a very long thread.
Force Majeure is right, freedom of speech is not fully practiced on Topix, that is my opinion.
sorry if you all confused with my poor english.
