Topix didnít didnít just ďcloseĒ, it fcking abandoned itís loyal posters. Tossed us under the proverbial bus. Relationships that took years to build were destroyed overnight and will never be again.

I guess thatís the way the whole thing goes in the merry old land of OZ. Easy come, easy go and never look back at the damage that was done.

Topix forum was dying the last three years, a '00s (decade) board that lasted towards the end of the '10s It peaked around 2012-13, FB and other social media sites took people away and the board, while having touched it site up a few times for looks it never updated its product and was outdated.

Boards are lucky to last 5 years, Topix board lasted about 13 years, I came on board in 2010 and was waning from it by 2018...

That's YOUR opinion. I'll repeat mine.

I survived it, I do realize the concept of moving on....

That was a big move you made...from Topix to Topix Too. Wow, what a concept!

Lower your temp, the hotter you are, the less you make sense. Anger clouds your judgement...


Anyways I am fine, sorry you are not...

Hmm.  Disappearing posts.

Topix was trash from the get-go because the owner was into making a buck over any social/ethical responsibilities and let bad users run wild and scare off all the decent users.

There were deaths associated with Topix and innumerable defamation suits which the owner ignored until it was going to affect his pocketbook.

Then the owner simply bailed to avoid the consequences.

Here's the other one that disappeared.

Why are there so many socks here?

I'm certain there was a huge lesson to be learned about that moronic idea from the original Topix.

I see what you mean.

That post was made right after Weepy's post, and then I made two posts that disappeared.

Then that post which was made earlier by that 'guest' disappeared and suddenly reappeared after I reposted my original posts that disappeared.

Why is this sort of shady shite going on here?

And no, I am not mistaken about these events, and it's not the software.

Must be a glitch.

I swear, you obviously can't read, but you also can't think.

I pointed out it's not the software, so it can't be a 'glitch'. 

I know how this software works and the ins and outs of it.

It was someone from the power structure here messing around for some ridiculous reason and not owning up to it.

You must have a 6th sense to know that.

And another post of mine disappears.

I replied to this post above and now it's gone.

The powers that be here should have the cojones to own up to when someone is removing posts - especially when someone is allowing personal attacks, defamation, trolling, and spamming by a certain posters and its 'minions' in other areas.

You must have a 6th sense to know that.

It may seem like a sixth sense to you unthinking brutes, but as I pointed out, I know this software thoroughly and it doesn't act like that under any circumstances.

It's obviously someone from the powers that be here that refuses to own up to their shenanigans.

The powers that be, that's a strong declaration.

And software/computers are like mysteries sometimes, can never figure out a good mystery.

A year already, I have a hunch they went under a different name, just a hunch.

No, they didn't go to a different name. They closed and that is that.

Do you have proof of that?
