Hi Guys,

We haven't made a site-wide announcement yet, but...

In the interest of better online privacy, did you know that with a registered account you can hide the isp location that shows with all your posts? You can either remove it completely or change it to whatever location best suits you.

Neat, huh? Check it out.:)

No, it is NOT neat.
This bonehead move just makes it easier for cowards to keep on trollin'.
No one should be able to hide their location.
Topix needs to take a break from the 420 and do its job by making everyone register with a valid e-mail address and reveal their ISP location.

Hi Top Mod. I see we can hide our location now. That's good. What made you decide to do that?

You have a valid point. I have noticed that certain trolls, easily recognizable (to longtime posters) by their posting styles, are having a field day creating new accounts and impersonating other posters and other douchebaggery.

There are benefits to the change as well. I guess every sword has two edges eh?

why?

and why do you need to know where an individual is located.

It helps some folk figure out who to hate and who not to.

Hey Mod, why are some posters allowed to use multiple accounts with multiple identities and locations?
They obviously use fake ISP's. Can't Topix do anything about it?
But I agree that one can hide his location if they want to. This is the only forum I know on the Internet which shows the location of the posters.
