I guess it is.  I checked it out and it seemed pretty lame.  What TP has done here is far more superior in my opinion.

I agree with you, CW.  I hear someone started an FB page for Topix members also.

That would be a little too public for me and one FB account is hard enough to keep up with.

I enjoy being a man of mystery.  LOL

I had many folks that I posted with Tima, maybe not as many as others.

Hello Pete, Icno, Mark and others.  I found you. I asked someone today if they heard from Pete or Icno and I got led here. I used to post on a similar board with HTML at the turn of the century. I am here.  :)

thanks, Pete. Should not take me long to figure it out but was used to Topix for 8 years, it was the only forum I used in that period. And has a spellcheck feature, should eliminate the job of Spelling Nazi.

I was expecting a new forum design soon  not a permanant shutdown. I seen a story that Topix was facing 15 counts of slander/libel and sounds accurate. If it was just bottom line they would have told us, just like they did a few years back with the Topix click bait game and their Politix site. I always felt they were being sued and the state gov'ts of WV and KY are not fans of Topix.

I was over at Reddit.com hoping some would find me, I do not do social media except for family matters. Not really a fan there. I met Pagan over there as well as SMF trying to stir schidt with me along with a couple others not affiliated with this group of posters.

I felt I would find you eventually Mark. We been buds for five years, will fight to find my Topix friends I had for several years.

I got to see Carolina punk out the Saints 2nd team with backup QB, ending that horrible skid.  :)

This is a pretty cool site Weepy, but it does take a minute to get use to.

As for the "spelling nazi" I read her on Topix right before it shut down that I was the spelling nazi. I'll have it known that I ONLY checked a few certain people that got on my nerves and only because I knew it would get to them big time. I personally don't care how anyone spells chit as long as they aren't trying to insult me or one of my friends when they do it.

Hello Icno. Never thought about you when writing that.  :) was referring to assholes like SMF, Spaci and many morons who misspell worse that me. A SN tend to correct spelling to be an azz or deflect from responding, you always never deflected from giving your opinion on anything.

LOL Yeah, I can't exactly be accused of deflecting, that's for sure.
