Topix Weblog: News Flash: The Bad Guys Win

Full story: blog.topix.com

I guess its time for another crop of news products from journalists. Why is it that when these guys all go onto the field of battle "once more into the breach" style, they don't understand which side of the Agincourt analogy they are on.

"But Jeez, why is it that all the old newspaper guys think there's some giant pile of money at the top of the trust pyramid? There isn't. All the money is at the bottom. In the muck."

Yep, you said it, Chris Tolles!

Topix does think there is a lot of money to be found in the "muck" of cruel, base and vile human discourse.

I just don't think so! Even if there is, its wrong, and needs to be ended.

The only way for there to be money at the "bottom" would be for corrupt interests to use the trolls on Topix to spread their word, and bully off opposition. Interests who would actually encourage the spread of, for instance racism, to serve their interests.

As for the bullying of teenagers, that is hardly a profit motive.

This is not the America we want, this is not the media we want. Clean up your act, Topix!!

According to you trolls I am the most desirable woman on Topix, I get assigned a new boyfriend every time someone agrees with me or defends me. I think the count is up to 15 now, could be more, could be less, for this femme fatale - according to Topix trolls that is.

Chris, what do you think of this practice? do you approve of trolling on Topix? isn't that the bad guys winning?

No, Just the Terminator, who only seems to be on topix at the same time. Unless you are both the same person.

Only Topix trolls can change the name of the city they are posting from, put any city they want in.

Topix trolls also enjoy the benefit of pre-alerts to comments, giving them more time to prepare a response.

Chris, what is this with giving trolls advantages the other commentators do not have? Topix is facilitating trolling, that is letting the bad guys win.

Chris, you should know, I am an old hand with trolls, and will turn every comment of theirs to my advantage.

Why are you having trolls take your side of the debate? and these threads, in their best form, are debates.

Why throw sand? why not just answer my questions?

Answer my questions, Chris Tolles!

Stop sending your troll militia out, you are making your company look ridiculous.

Have some respect, for your employees if not for yourself.

You wish, troll, Pasadena troll I might add. Listen Chris, you not doing your company or yourself or your stock holders or your board, any favors by allowing these trolls to post comments on your thread. None.

You are simply outing your company as the "bad guys", and making them look ridiculous.

I came to the same conclusions and sent various emails to Topix..strange how since the 19.95 fee the trolls multiplied..doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the truth. I and many other totally agree with your post. They will advertisers, asnd have lost significant readers and posters this past year. They do not seem to care. Chris told me last year in a brief rushed phone conversation he basically doesn't get involved with this stuff...well then who does? No one of course! I was warned when I questioned the same things you have. Guess it will be addressed during an investigation by the now 25 and growing number of Atty Generals across the US..there are countries who are going to block access to these forums due to their lack of honoring TOS and lack of control along with the other very serious legit ongoing complaints...Amazing the vulagarities, stalking, slanderous behavior and other violators have protected under the "Freedom of Speech" cloa. Those of us standing up against, questioning the standards and practices that just don't jive, are stalked, harrassed,issued trumped up bogus warnings and sometimes banned...the "plants" and corruptive activity are allowed to continue..how obvious is that scene? Draw your own conclusions!

oh we have one's like you on the ct forums..too coincidental to be real..what a setup..undermine her with your smokescreens and mirrors to deflect from the truth how transparent is that? All too evident of a constant pattern when someone posts truth..blame the truthteller to enable the schills, trolls planted proxys..what a lame game!!!!!!Bet you are the Terminator and a few other names given you are stalking a person who is concerned about the abusive behavior permitted on all of these forums sort of like the animals running the zoo..mighty fishy how you keep stalking this woman with legit concerns...dirty butt here perhaps?
