A few weeks ago, I posted this:

http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TT...

I emailed a few advertisers and, since then, have received emails from Coles and Expedia saying they will no longer be advertising at Topix.

Expedia wrote:

[quote]Hi there,

I wanted to thank you for your feedback, we have investigated this and actually removed the Topix forum so we will no longer be featuring ads on this site. I agree with what you have said below.

Regards and Thanks again for highlighting this to us.[/quote]

[quote]Dear Blair

Thank you for your email.

We have been advised by our Marketing Team, that we will not be advertising on this website in the future. This is definitely not a
site we want to associate out brand with and we are glad that you have bought this to our attention.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to your future custom.[/quote]

My original email to advertisers read:

[quote]Your company advertises on the website, Topix. This forum, especially the Australia Forum, is filled with racist abuse and threats - some even professing to want to kill all Asians.

Here is a link to the forum:

http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia

As an advertiser, your brand features next to threads with titles such as:

Why do indians smell bad?
i hate asians!!!
I challenge Vizhnu to an excreting contest
Italians are greasy poofs
I punched a smelly indian for fun
Was Mohammed a pedophile?
Lebanese women remind me of boars
Jews are ugly hook nosed monkeys
Mohammed was a dirty pedo

These are just a few of the thread titles in the Australia forum - the comments are even worse!

I would think this isn"t something you"d want your brand associated with. I have contacted the site owners several times and they do not respond and seem to condone the behaviour as it generates more hits and sells more advertising - so I'm now taking to contacting advertisers direct.[/quote]

So if you are sick of racism on this site, take action and do something about it!... and kudos to Coles and Expedia for removing Topix from the list of sites that they advertise.

Do you feel better now? You know you could always just stop using this website. Nobody forces you to use it.

Good on you Blair, you may remember me expressing scepticism at your idea and I am quite surprised you had a positive result. I don't think it will worry Topix as they are a large set up and someone else will fill the place of those with a conscience. In the end it's I think it's got to be self regulation where we choose to do right for the sake of right or we must be controlled because we can't control ourselves.
I have seen a first hand example of man out of control in East Timor where militia and indonesian troops went on an insane rampage of rape and murder simply because they were able to. You've seen the filth on topix, ultimately if the moderators don't do anything, nothing will change. The downfall of topix is the fact that there is no ownership, therefore no responsibility taken and no consequences for actions. I must say I'm pretty well sick of topix, I've even openly abused the moderators to no effect, they are utterly irresponsible opportunists, sensation mongers, and capitalists of the worst kind.
Good on you for trying, topix could be a good thing but at present it's just a pile of shit.

Nor have I. But I have been blocking so many sites from here for so long that I could have blocked those ones too. Perhaps you've been doing something similar?

I agree with most of what you say sid. But the question remains ... why is Topix AUSTRALIA forum BY FAR the most degraded forum of all? It's as if Topix Admin have a grudge against Australia and smile upon any shit that comes our way. There has been speculation about the ethnicity of some Topix Moderators themselves.

Interesting that so many large companies and organisations that have anti-discrimination policies advertise here including Adelaide University.

Just on this thread I can see Sony advertising.

I've wondered the same, topix is supposedly registered in the US but it wouldn't surprise me if it's run and maintained from india, sort of figures with all the indian garbage here. I've looked at other topix site around the world and there is nothing like the shit posted in the australian forum. I've openly accused the moderators of being indian but obviously no response from them. I got on the mumbai forum on night and let some heavy duty abuse go and it was pulled within 15 minutes. I,ve no way of knowing but it seems pretty obvious what's going on.
Will give you a call on this.

Then that would be the explanation. Blocking sites is browser-specific. I have FireFox on standby which I have not used for a long time. I bet if I switched to that I would start seeing ads that I have not seen in yonks.:)
