I personally think that to require someone to register with Topix before being able to participate other than reading posts would be a good start.
It would certainly help.

my question is how is it that Beliefnet. Which larger and has a larger community is able to control and keep the troll down to a dull roar..

Yet, I am told here on Topix that level of control is not possible..

Either Beliefnet is not real or someone on topix is lying..

But then beleifnet is about a community of all kinds religion, philosophies and is ad driven.. With a small amount of news thrown in..

Topix add driven a lot of news thrown in. With people from all kinds of religions and philosophies posting together.

The difference seems to be that topix has more news thrown in. Why that should make a difference is beyond me. That seems to be salient point. A minor point as I might think it is in reality. but that seems to be topix position.

I have no tolerence for childishness and disrespect, and think trolling is just plain stupid...it makes that person look stupid...when I put my voice out there, it is in hopes that no one thinks of me as a moron, and I also hope no one feels disrespected in any way. Why is it hard for some people to just avoid drama?
Pagan Priestess a few years ago it would have been mainly Pagans with communities where a person could post on several different topics and not have the flame wars or the utter bull from the trolls.

Sadly, Topix has allowed what would have been very good online communities die in the effort of the more posts. The more the company can charge for an ad.

I am on a couple of different forums that honor the fine people in uniform.

One is already crawling with trolls. It wont be long till no one that is decent will be posting there any longer. The other is still small and has not attracted any trolls... Yet.

On topix you are either going to grow a thick skin or are get blown off the site. Seen it happen too many times, sad to say.

If you are looking for a calm in the storm from the usual 'net.. my suggestion is try another website. or if you are looking for mature conversation with an exchange of ideas. It happens. But in truth it is a brawl. In some places on topix there is blatant cyber-bullying and stalking. Google up topix and cyber bullying and stalking.

But if you decide to stay.. And I hope you do. We need decent people to counter weight the trolls and maybe.. Maybe then Topix Corp. will listen and rid the site of the trolls. Maybe.. I am an optimist after all.

I for one enjoy your posts. Please continue posting. We may or may not agree about some topics but that is part of exchanging ideas.

Thank you both, I enjoy your posts as well. I will stay, maybe our views and experiences will someday not only fuel the acceptance of others, but also educate them on a real basis, and tearing away the lies and myths that are out there.

As for any trollers, or haters out there...maybe they'll grow up one day and learn to open their eyes.

I think you are asking an awful lot of the trolls. For the most part they are usually very immature and as closed minded & ignorant as they come. For the most part I usually ignore them and if enough people ignore them they don't get the attention they crave and leave to go elsewhere to spread their nonsense.

Hi Jox. All is well here. I hope everything is going fine with you. I agree about this forum being in decline. It used to be an enjoyable place to visit and exchange ideas. Unfortunately that is no longer true. I don't see Topix changing any time soon. They do a very poor job of monitoring their forums.
Thankyou for replying my pal. Im really fed up this weather and a bit down. When I come onto the forum I love talking to folks like you and the regulars...because you all make me feel a bit better!!! But, so many times it is hijacked by horrid people and put me off a bit. But, i will keep posting to my lovely fellow lads and lassies!! Blessings to you BB Jo x

Oh no, by no means are you a moron lol!! In fact you are a clear, concise and very interesting poster on this forum and I love reading your thoughts!!! If you and all the others out there keep posting genuine pagan topics and ideas, then I will too!! So, lets all blank the nasty comments and do not reply to them, then we can get our forum back again!! BB Jo x

I was at an old country grave yard and saw an old rusty nail sticking out of a tree.
I took it home to use as a paper weight for my desk.
Strange stuff started happing right away.
Late at night I could sware I heard a low moan.
As the next door are horny as rabbits I dismissed it and turned up the radio with some AC/DC.
The next morning I couldn't find my car keys to go to church.
SO I took my scooter.
When I got home that afternoon my house smelled musty and there was freash dirt on my cook stove.
I don't buy all this 'hoo-doo' about spooks,but It's got me to wondering.
Any ideas about what steps to take in this matter?
Okay I don't care if you are series or not but I"m gonna help you anyway. Just put it the nail back were you found it. and it will stop. Maybe even read a bible verse for good measure.
