OK so does anybody know why... When I'm signed on with my account, and I make a post, I can then only see those posts appearing if I'm signed on under my account. Coming on board "anonymously" like I am right now, they don't show up. However posts I make while on here anonymously DO show up all the time. I don't get that can anyone explain to me how come this is so? Topix doesn't really have a general questions link I can click on to ask them.

I'm NOT 100% sure but I think that means that profile is banned.

I told him, truthfully mind you, that he had a bad haircut. I lost a couple profiles after that.

Think back. Did you ever try to post something but it echoed back with some red text either saying you should refrain from posting offensive language OR red text saying you needed to click an email link to avoid being banned?

Yeah, I bet you did. Topix sneakily let's you see all your activity like nothing is wrong but hides it from everyone else when they think you have been bad. I guess that is to forestall people just creating a new profile right away after getting 'banned'.

Ok I just posted successfully. now I posted a very long post but it did not show. Was it too theological for someone. How do I know if there was something "offensive"{ in my post and it wasn't accepted. do they tell you.

You might inadvertently have set Topix to 'stealth mode.' That's how I've been doing it.

On your keyboard, you may be confusing the "Enter" key with the "Delete" key...... I did this for like a week before I realized something was wrong.

That's a clever feature of Topix. They hide stuff from the rest of the world, but the original author still sees it. That way, most people don't realize they have been banned/blocked and thus don't pester their support staff or worse, create yet another account with which to do their dirty work. It slows down the incorrigible ones that are unable to behave.

On the assumption you haven't actually been banned, there is a Feedback link to send them email. Maybe they banned an IP or block of IP addresses that you happen to be connected through.
