New York is trying to pass a law to eliminate anonymous posting. If you want to post you would have to identify yourself. I hope they pass it here too. That would eliminate some of the full time trolls on here! They have to grow some balls or quit posting. That sure would be great on Topix .

No games here. First time posting here. My last name is Hoffman. Why are you so touchy about this topic? We can all have our opinions. But I think you're missing the whole point of the topic which is using our actual names and not made up screen names. That would make conversations more adult and honest on here. It sounds like a good idea if you want to keep things honest on here. Of course trolls won't like it.

OK I'll play, how can you slander someone hiding behind a phony screen name? Maybe you should ask a legal scholar. LMFAO at you

Slander and libel are very hard to prove and "awards"by courts are miniscule.Just ask Jerry Falwell.RE: Flynt vs.Falwell.Wikipedia defamation and read the truth.Politicians and rich/elites just want to protect their "good" names.This is just another way to stop free speech.Case in point ,look at what these elitist scumbags do to a "whistle-blower".The y're screwed over totally,and the elites go no- holds- barred, to destroy them.They have the power and money to do it too.If politicians/elites weren't doing anything wrong they would not be targets.I do agree however that at times attacking innocent family members etc.is tasteless,but even the biggest azzhole can see thru that type of garbage.If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen.Pussies.

Thanks for the thoughtful insight. That is a rare commodity on Topix nowadays.

Now did i call you a troll ?
Since you're new here then you have NOT seen what i've had to face.
From physical threats to impersonators.
So its not always a good idea to let others know who you are.
And if i wanted to do that i would be on a certain social media site where people put out their names and face pics.
I'm on here to discuss topics not personalities.
Who you are doesn't matter to me.
I care about what you think.
That's why i'm FOR anoymous postings, this way its the topic that matters.
I don't see how using topix for topics makes a person a troll.

There is no point in posting to the wrong audience. You are not a serious poster. You are a troll because you are obviously not committed to getting results. You just post BS on here to people who don't care and won't benefit from it because they have common sense. You have been on here four years posting and refuse to do anything that could produce tangible results. You are a TROLL.

I'm very serious.
AIDS/HIV and STD's are a very serious topic that needs to be discussed.
The only way people are going to realize the danger they face from this bookstore is if someone tells them.
And a public forum reaches the most people.
As for doing stuff to stop the bookstore i am doing things.
But its smarter not to tell your enemies exactly what that is.
Besides one person alone will never stop this bookstore. It'll take numerous people working with different methods to do it.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to get that part of my message across to others.
See in your own way you're helping me.

The truth about this bookstore are being said on here and they are right on.
The BS is the guys doing impersonations and trying to take topics in goofy directions.
But the real purpose of this thread is why we need to have anonymity in this forum.
Its because of the personal threats and harassment that some would give to those posting that many posters myself included would prefer to remain anonymous.
Thanks for realizing that we need to keep this forum free to everyone regardless of what they post about, and the right to remain anonymous while doing it.

If you were serious you would find the ENERGY to make an EFFORT to post on more than just the MELROSE PARK TOPIX site. There are other places like Chicago that customers could come from. I doubt that many people in Melrose Park go there. You could actually post to people who go there on usa sex guide but that is too much of a challenge for you. Your a troll.

Not really, I just started posting on Topix. Why are you so concerned? Maybe you should post your real name like I do.
