For Dear FlowerChild

Glad you like them, Flower... George is finding nearly forgotten poets and bringing their work back to the reading public... here's one for today... Today on The Penny Blog: The Christmas Silence, by Margaret Deland Hushed are the pigeons cooing low On dusty rafters of the loft; And mild-eyed oxen, breathing soft, Sleep on the fragrant hay below.

You don't seem to understand the concept, but that doesn't really matter, you don't seem to have the need to copyright your wistful prose anyhow, do you?  (46 min ago | post #14)

As the old wise man said you can't tell a lie over and over and expect it to become the truth. And who wants to take the word of an anonymous troll such as you anyhow, Harrison Ford?  (1 hr ago | post #24649)

And when the fake information on Wikipedia starts getting repeated, the trouble expands...  (4 hrs ago | post #24636)

For Dear FlowerChild

Of course, this is not the first time Topix has had an unregistered, anonymous troll making personal attacks without proof on the Forums. The "Harrison Freebird" troll is not a new phenomenon on Topix Forums... the site has had repeated problems with anonymous, unregistered "flame trolls", who stalk and post what can verge into the territory of libel, for example: http://www.nytimes .com/2011/09/20/us /small-town-gossip -moves-to-the-web- anonymous-and-vici ous.html "...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Dee’s Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.' [...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept. 'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..." And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel. The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category  (4 hrs ago | post #24635)

In case you missed it, anonymous troll, Topix is very clear that your personal attack posts are not appropriate on Topix Forums: The "Harrison Freebird" character comes across as a disgruntled stalker, and the posts he's making are a violation of the Topix posting rules "Terms of Service". "Please note by submitting this form you acknowledge that you have read the Terms of Service and the comment you are posting is in compliance with such terms. Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator. Send us your feedback..." And so it goes.  (4 hrs ago | post #24634)

Point is, Topix isn't here as a place for an anonymous troll like you to make their personal attacks, and in fact the Topix Terms of Service specifically forbit it. Argue with the Topix moderators about it, not me...I don't make the rules, troll.  (4 hrs ago | post #24633)

Buck Wild Saloon is just a good old fashioned country music honky tonk, which is what the poster seems to be looking for.  (4 hrs ago | post #10)

Justice

The cops had names, they were real people: "What I'm sure you didn't see on the flame-throwing lamestream media. This is reality, not sensationalism used from this great tragedy for some political agenda, and to spread hatred and lies and most importantly for their agenda, division. Rest in peace Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, from all accounts here you sounded like real good cops and the kind we all need in our communities.... " -Susan Troianello  (5 hrs ago | post #3)
