I am 44 years old and i have lived in this town for 21 years. I recently discovered this website. I am so disappointed and embarrassed to be a part of this community. I cant believe that people have nothing better to say than "trash" about each other. Havent your mothers every told you that if you dont have something good to say dont say anything at all. Clearly most of you have never made any bad choices or mistakes. I have made plenty of mistakes, some Ive even learned from. Try saying something nice you will be surprised how much better you will feel about yourself.
amen

if those that all speak put there pea-sized brains together it would be the equivelant of one of us normal citizens! 9 times outta 10 says that they are fat, sit on there lazy bums, and collect welfare money... they are not anybetter than one who doesn't.

There are 90% more people recieving this so-called "WELFARE MONEY" compared to back in the 90's yes... but HELLO PEOPLE this is 2010 and the economy is horrible... some people don't have the choice......they live paycheck to paycheck!

Times are tough, no doubt about that. But some simple stereotypes can be caught quickly when reading some of these posts. If you can't structure the grammar in what you're writing any better than that in which you speak,there's a pretty good chance you're the neighbor nobody wants! However, there are plenty of working-class families in Port Leyden that work an honest day's wage... a lot of young families struggling to get by, but still making sure they send clean, decently clothed, well mannered children to school. Those are the people of "the next generation" that I applaud!

I believe that this web site started out as a place for people to bring concerns regarding the community. I also believe that things have turned a very negative corner--one can share a concern without "trashing" people. It is unfortunate that the site is not being used for what, I believe, was it's intended purpose. When Communities comes together to solve the problems that affect all of us, it is a great and beautiful thing. When they haggle and snarl at each other it is just a sad representation of the Community as a whole-- a dissapointing reputation for those of us who know better.

Vinny, why are you calling the kettle black? You are the one posting nasty things about other people. You are the one hiding behind numerous names. I would call you a hypercrite...

Anyways..... I am entitled to my opinion whether you agree with it or not "Vinny". Topix is a website to have discussions.... I don't see no wrong in what I am doing!! As the comment states after yours... your a little quick on calling the kettle black..... let me simplify that for you..... you put people down too... under multiply names..and its not putting someone down when you know them and your sticking up for them. didn't your mom and dad teach you any manners? how does that make you better. What i stated before is a general fact about Port Leyden and the surrounding area. Sorry if you don't like that. But its TRUE!!
