I think that some of the comments on this site are very distressing. I heard about the site and checked it out recently. In my opinion many of the threads (discussions) are very hurtful. There are other towns that use their Topix site for good things, like announcing yard sales, found pets, house for rent etc. I have seen a few positive posts on this site. Unfortunately, some of the threads are absolutely vicious. Yes, individuals in America do have freedom of speech. On the otherhand; basic courtesy should be observed. I checked out Topix in a few towns in surrounding counties. There was a post on the Hillsboro site which basically said that if people wanted entertainment they should check out the Peebles and Manchester sites. I didn't see West Union mentioned, but it is not any better.

What about saying good things about people? Perhaps people could post recipes, home remedies, tips for saving money or where to shop? Yard sale announcements would be great! I imagine that their are some Christians who check out this site. It would be a great place to share a devotional thought or a bible verse. Maybe we could offer encouragement for those who have lost jobs or who are depressed. Please join me in trying to make this site more positive and less embarrassing for our community. Thank you very much for your time and consideration of this matter.

Respectfully....

I agree 100%. The gossips and lowlifes have found this site and have used it to gossip, dig up dirt and trash the names of people that they have personal issues with. It is mean and nasty and not being used for the purpose in which it was intended. I found out about this site when someone used it to try to ruin my daughters name. I used it to try to find a contractor to do some work for me and I got very few replys. Had I asked if anyone knew 'Joe Schmoe' I would have gotten 50 comments on how terrible 'Joe' is. We in Adams County have many good people and it should be portrayed as a great place to live. Instead we have people in the county, trashing every service, every person, roads, schools, hospitals, all sorts of professionals..everything. C'mon people...have some pride!!

Thank you so much for posting this thread. I too have checked out other threads and they are nothing like this. I grew up and graduated from WU and I have never been so ashamed. I even looked at the number of threads WU has compared to Manchester. We out number them by several hundred threads. Come on people we are better than this trash on here!!!!!

Hey,
I am happy that there are at least a few others who are also concerned about much of the content of this site. It is hard for me to give in and do nothing. If anyone has any ideas, please share!!

I`ve had good friends with good reputations get bashed on here for no good reason and their children see it. I check from time to time to see if anything else has been posted about them or any of my family members. This site is extortion at it`s finest considering you have to pay $20 to get a thread removed. I think a class action suit should be brought against the company for not proofing comments before they are added or at the very least removing slanderous and hurtful posts free of charge! It`s ridiculous!

I agree also! I found about this site because someone called my house to see if my husband had passed away, it was listed here, and of course he hadn't. This is crazy! This could be used for much better things that is for sure! Glad there are people out there that feel the same!
