If they can blatantly censor my innocent fun thread,
You are mentally ill. It was NOT an "innocent fun thread".

Had Topix done its job as a fair open-to-publication Social Network, the administration would have have simply denied the Seen Thread's protester(s) after asking if there were any physical threats involved, or the more freedom-to-speak questions, like:
"Did a fist or knife or gun come out of your computer screen when you read the posts that were simply poking fun at a Topix troller named 'Seen'?
"Unless the above dangers or things involving similar dangers are part of the thread which you protest about, then Topix has no choice but to allow open and fair postings and discussion, both pro-and-con on any subject. That is our policy and that is what sponsoring open debate forums is meant to be all about. Otherwise, protester, you and we would spoil and even destroy our spirit of freedom, and even Topix itself!"
I suggest you take your grievances to the Topix moderators.

It has disappeared from our roster of threads in this forum.(??)
I must ask, "Why - Oh - Why, why was my brainchild fun-thread sent out to sea?"
Perhaps someone like Topix Adm #21 had a biased hand in the twistin' till, because some free-speech-loving folks here-'bouts were havin' some fun for a change. Is that the reason?
Or, is Adolph alive and well and running Topix?
Is the volume-speak getting too loud when it shouts there, Mr. Adm?
So, I ask, who or what is Topix's rules of play patterned after?
America's founders made explicit provision for Freedom of Speech in its Charter. However, I don't know if Topix is America-based or governed.
Many countries have limitations on free speech. Many countries are notable for their extreme lack of free speech: Iran, North Korea, Nepal, Myanmar are all examples. People are often executed in those countries for speaking out.
Many other countries have severe restrictions on certain types of speech. Most Muslim countries, for example, do not tolerate speech demeaning Islam. Malaysia does not permit denigration of any religion.
Many don't. China doesn't since it is communist. Russia really doesn't since the news and TV are controlled by the state. Many Arab nations are monarchies and they don't. Cuba, Somalia, and some South American countries don't have freedom of press or speech.
Of course, I feel like I'm just a small voice crying out in a Topix Wilderness:
SO, I cry, WHY DID YOU DELETE MY FREE-SPEECH THREADS, Topix?
To be fair, an explanation is in store, or should it be rendered to you in Chinese?
"I live in America. I have the right to write whatever I want. And it's equaled by another right just as powerful: the right not to read it. Freedom of speech includes the freedom to offend people." - Brad Thor
I've had them delete many of my posts and also a new threat I started..It appears topix does not value free speech..I suggest you keep re-posting it until they miss it..
