All I ever really cared about was the ability to use my registered name to post derogatory comments.

That's why I created this thread aimed directly to Chris Tolles. It was never my intent to have it overtaken by yet another squawking match between these airheads that seem to only want to argue with each other.

My issue has been addressed by the man in charge as well as the mods who seem to me to have an open ear to the issue.

I am somewhat satisfied that I have been heard, and for that I am appreciative. I remain committed to the idea that required registeration would easily resolve MY issue, but I remain defiant to post on any other thread but this one.

I do NOT assume that I am of any importance to Topix in any personal manner, yet I feel like my suggestion deserves merit.

I would point out in my own defense that I am pretty crafty in the ability to create responses to my posts which result in my contributions to this Forum to be multiplied at least 5-fold.

Thanks to the mods, and to Chris Tolles for showing interest in my issue.

Regarding those who just get up everyday and log-in to Topix to argue with each other ...

If I may, I'd like to make a suggestion. I once created a thread titled, "I will get the last word", and it was a smash hit! Of course after 800+ posts, it remains funny even today.

I urge you to consider reforming that thread and just go at it with each other. Then, maybe, you can contain your childish behaviours to that particular thread and spare the rest of us the annoyance of having to deal with you on every thread.

This is good example how trolls move from thread to thread forum to forum just to fight, attack, others including mod, editors...no one left behind right? Get a life!
You mean, as you are doing in your post to me?

"All I ever really cared about was the ability to use my registered name to post derogatory comments"

I agree 100% with you on this, I too have had my registerd
name hijacked and use to make nasty post, or just for pure
harassment to me.

There has to be a way Topix could fix that, at least I think
there is. Good luck to you on this issue!

Of course there is. Topix is not my first rodeo. I am a member of the ESPN sports forums. There is absolutely no way to post there without registering. If a member violates the TOS there, he is temporarily banned. When this occurs, you cannot post ... you are directed to a window that allows you to write ESPN mods and request a reinstatement. You are usually granted reinstatement,... if not a mod will e-mail you as to why.

I think you have a really good point with wanting registered user names preserved.

In all the kerfuffle, know that we did hear you on that one. ;)

That would be great to have something like that here!

Maybe Topix will listen to you and set something up like
that,it can't be that hard!

I still think they should get rid of the silly
judge its, they mean nothing to most posters
and it appears the only ones using them are
posters who dislike others. Very childish in
my opinion.

I started advocating that Topix require people to register over TWO YEARS ago. Nothing has changed.

Good luck to all concerned, but trying to control where people post and what they post on a PUBLIC FORUM just because you don't like them or their views borders on censorship and infringement of Freedom of Speech rights.

I in no way support or defend trolls or the vile behaviour that some people participate in, but when I'm on a thread, ANY thread, and someone posts nasty, attacking, critical, offensive or vile comments to me, I reserve my right to reply OR to ignore as I see fit regardless of the topic. This public entity is not just about anonymity, it is also about FREEDOM and CHOICES.

Force people to register, don't force them to register, you will always have people who disagree with one another or have personality clashes, or who simply want to control an environment for their own agendas.

I highly doubt Topix will require registration of all users just to appease the minority. And as long as people can use proxies without detection, they will do so.

Topix needs to use whatever technology it has available to prevent hijackers from using registered names and detecting those who use subterfuge to post vile and offensive comments. These kinds of comments have come from BOTH registered and unregistered users however.

Good luck. It's still just Topix.

It's like getting on a bus or train. You never know who'll be on board, but they don't get kicked off the train just because you don't like them.

I think you're going a little too far, Rose is entitled to

them but you don't need to be rude!
I don't recall ever posting to or about you. You know nothing of me and likewise. You have no basis to cast aspersions with unfounded basis. In other words it might be a good idea since you are not involved to MYOB.

Virginia,
It is clear you have created an elaborate web of beliefs surrounding the inner workings of the Topix site.
However wrong you may be (and you could not be more laughably wrong), I'm not going to refute the same misinformation over and over again.
You are welcome to use the feedback link to discuss your own personal issues on the site, but I would ask that you do not waste people's time in derailing conversations with the same rants over and over again.
Remember that Topix is a public website and when posting on Topix, people are free to respond to your content. That does not qualify as stalking. Topix also is free to remove posts and users at will. If you would like to categorize that as "unethical shadow banning", you may, however thems's the breaks.
If you are uncomfortable posting on the Topix site because of the nature of anonymous internet interaction, this might not be the best place for you. At this point, that is most certainly up to you.
Admin @ Topix
Great response, that clears up a lot of confusion. Thanks again!

AHH, but I've read plenty of your posts and last time
I checked this was still a free country and I'm entitled
to an opinon, you may not like it, but it what it is!

When I see a friend getting attacked by someone I will
say something, what you said to Rose was wrong, but
you know that, right?...

Thanks, I plan on having a good night, you take care also!
