Someone told me my ex ex ex g/f was being trashed on topix. Deservedly so, might I add. Anyway, I found some interesting topics regarding politics. Which lead me down some crazy "rabbit holes". After debating politics and religion for a while I found myself growing tired of other posters trashing any and everyone. Thus, Topics Avenger was born.

Have you ever noticed that the vast majority of threads' content consists ONLY of posters bashing one another?

Yeah, I have noticed that.

I should have said The Avenger was born through the bashing of real persons and not topix personas. I don't have a problem with "word battles" between personas.

I let her go. You should have known that. She wasn't happy about it but one has to do what one has to do.

Please remove the Pasadena Troll's comment then.
I am not going to stir up the fight between Virginia and PT but I will say that Virginia you did specifically call out PT in your post which is the "finger pointing" I wanted to avoid in the first place.

In the interest of keeping this thread from derailing I am going to remove the posts from both of you and I invite you both to post again if you want to contribute something on topic.

I started this thread out of a desire to get to know the Topics forum posters better and I don't want to contribute to any long standing feuds.

I hope that you both understand where I am coming from.

Sounds fair to me. Maybe one day I'll say I come to topix for the exquisite moderation ;)

Dear TopMod 15
And there you have it.
If you have to remove my posts I understand, it's ok. I never had any permanent attachment to them anyway. Every thing in this realm of existence is fleeting. don't you agree?

I was looking at someone running for office on Google and clicked on a news link, after reading the story, I saw the comment area below the article.
I was stoked, I had been looking for a place with a million forums where you didn't have to register to comment. And sure enough, there it was.

Apparently, I got sucked in enough to sign-up as a registered member anyways (lol), but without that one opportunity to post without signing up, I would not be here at all.

I am a perfect example of why you're successful. Haha..
Thanks, Topix.

That's pretty cool. How did you like the 2010 Election threads we did? We tried our best to get every local candidate we could.

I was summoned by forces of unknown origin. A "calling" as it were.

The only absolute is, it was meant for me to be here.

I'd like to address this please!

I thought the election threads were very cool. Especially since they were open to statewide participation .......... however,

the elections are over. Those threads keep getting all bumped up to the top of all the forum pages and it has become annoying. I'd like to see them removed now.

Hi TM15. The PT was the reason I came onto Topix.

Its not finger pointing, its the truth. She is the only reason I came onto Topix. I cannot give another reason because there isn't one.

I also said how I have moved beyond this and have come to see the much bigger picture on Topix. its true.

Yeah we had a bug that wasn't allowing us to pull down statewide threads in individual forums. We pushed out a fix for that yesterday. Some of those threads are still very much alive and I don't want to pull them all down especially since the candidates will be taking office in January. However, I do understand that they may be intrusive to some of the slower moving forums that might not push them down as quickly. I am going through and removing them on a case by case basis.

So if you have suggestions of particular local forums where the election threads are troublesome please let me know and I will check it out.

Thanks RBJ
