Is Topix Hunting Down Paid Posters Or What?

Real Posters Do It Free

I've never been paid to make a post on Topix. But for some reason I've come under suspicion by a fellow "poster". I started a political thread and was accused of being paid to stir up trouble with nonsense.

Before that, on another city/state Forum, I read a thread where someone else was being accused of being a paid poster for a certain political party and stumping for a particular candidate in the swing states.

So, I'm just wondering. Has Topix been invaded by paid posters of outside sources? Like political parties or religious groups, for example. Or maybe even other social sites sending in paid trolls, for example. And is Topix trying to root them out and get rid of them? Or maybe posters are just teasing other posters in this matter and there is nothing really to it at all.

The problem, however, becomes one of confusing the paid posters with other "normal" posters. Just because someone posts a lot or makes a lot of threads (discussion and/or poll) does not necessarily mean that poster is paid to do it.

Here's what Topix says on the front page of a Forum ...

So then, what about those of us who are not paid. But do it for free just because we want to. Because we sincerely love Topix. Not because of any associations with outside sources. If we post a lot or start a lot of threads (discussion and/or poll), why should we be suddenly fall under suspicion of living on Topix 24/7 and being paid posters?

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your comments.
