Let's reference the above comment from Ninthman. A couple of civic-minded Topix commenters have dubbed his comments "Spam," "Clueless," and "Nuts." Absolutely on the money. But what about the commenter with stronger feelings or convictions or for that matter greater scholarship? A commenter like Ninthman comes along, makes a remark that's cretinous, rude, libelous, or otherwise degrades the level of public discourse -- he oughta be chastised. Whomped on. He ought to find out that for hlm, speech isn't free. That a select group of us will track him down and when we find him we will reshape his groin. But who has the time, right? Better idea: new and stronger Topix icons. For example: "Stupid Asshole." "Stupid Asshole" might be represented by a tiny rectum wearing a dunce's cap. Or "Utter Douchebag." I'm not even sure what a douchebag is (though I know one when I meet one), but I'm sure the icon would be easy to research. Another possibility is "I'm Going To Fucking Kill You And Your Fucking Children." Have you ever followed the comments by Greeks/Macedonians/Bulgarians or for that matter the people from the countries that were formerly Yugoslavia? These comments are apoplectic. You can see the spittle spewed onto the computer screen. And they've even come up with an ultimate slur. If you are not one of the good guys, you are a Fyrmonian or Frymonain or something, and God help you if you are. These commenters, who wage virtual war against each other on Topix need an icon like "I'm Going To Fucking Kill You and Your Children." It will get heavy use and probably attract dozens of more Bulgarian users to this Topix site. And isn't that what Topix wants? More Bulgarian readers? They are as spirited as they are dull normal -- always good for some insightful comments. Anyway, it's just a thought. It's my goal in life to spread joy and happiness and I'm glad Topix is here to help.
