Can't speak for anyone but myself, I'm losing interest for several reasons, this new revised look Topix has taken on suks, especially on my phone,,too many ads chasing me around the threads, lag time seems to be getting better and doesn't happen as often, it has become harder to Navigate as DC pointed out.

A lot of the old timers seemed to have moved on to be replaced by not so interesting posters that post the same things pretty much everyday which is their prerogative but it does get mundane after awhile. As for socks,, some are witty and funny, some are mean and backbiters , some are info gathering trolls and some are just plain juvenile but they have been a part of Topix since I came here in 09, the problem does seem to be growing tho.

Originally came to O/B for Shyts and Giggles and told myself when the giggles stop I wasn't gonna hang around for the Shyts, still get a chuckle here and there, usually from an old timer, speaking of which, most of the old timers seem to be losing interest.

Using socks is lame. Especially when people use them to talk or agree with themselves.

The Top Mods actually sacked the Topix Editor (not the mods) thing, but I like the way you think!

As much as I want to blast the PR naivete with the pics there, ultimately, what makes up Topix is the posters.

At the very least, I don't see Topix begging for donations like the Freerepublic with the liberal (heh) ban hammer they wield.
