The original Topix was great with many interesting discussions shedding light on various topics, but I think some higher powers wanted it shut down (to much light). It was plain to see the the subtle, long drawn planned attack. First it gets bombarded by trolls or someone paid to do it. The discussion gets sidetracked with worse and worse comments and ends with sexual explicit nonsense comments, etc. Then after some time with that its time for the next tactic which is to launch complaints. After some time of complaints bombardment, two or three years, its ripe for the next sequence which is changing its structure and severely limiting the forum. In this case it was changed to entertainment nonsense and Hollywood film and star topics. After some years of braindead stories and topics with fixed icons it then is ripe for the final stage, the "coup-de-grace", which is shutting it down. Very clever indeed. The sheeple don't have a clue and their voice finally silenced. Mission accomplished. Case closed.

Wow! were the topix posters opinions that important, that gives me a big head, that it was shut down because of something someone posted shed too much light? lol that is funny.

I thought it was shut down because of all the gossip talk in the towns section,, alot of smut in that part of topix. I never posted in those threads.

Good to see you posting Pagan!

I have to check in on my Topix peeps, now and then.  Louis has internet radar, the second i pick up phone or open the laptop he needs something. I get a few mins for FB, sometimes i make it to Twitter for a sec or so or here.

Hope you have had a great summer. You site seems to be doing well.

My Life is just a bunch of "It seemed like a good idea at the time" strung together.

It has been ok, I had not been on here as much in recent time as my 6 posts per day avg shows but that was the way it was on Topix before closing. Hope you and family ar doing well.. If you hear from Sundog telll him I said hi..

The original Topix worked better for me, this one the wifi wants to resist for some reason, depending upon where i am. It works great from home with laptop but it gets very slow with my phone or tablet.  I Also, i have an infant who is a velcro baby and he takes up most of my time. Therefore, i use FB as main social media as it is always loads fast.

I see him on FB all the time, i will tell him.

Hallo PL.
Howdy Pagan! Yeah, it is easier for me to do Facebook than this but I still check this place out just don't post as often as I did.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

I still never joined Facebook ever since it started, I never liked it.

I got FB but do not use it a lot as only my laptop has a decent messenger working, the fb on phone cannot get and the ipad messenger is garbled. I rarely use the laptop, laptop is the only one I can put up polititcal cartoons in the other forum thread.

I am not a fan of seeing everyones posted words and pics on the face that I am friends with nor their entire lives, got plenty of gripes with it. Ihad not used it hardly in over three years but only check it out to keep it active and let others know I am still around etc...

I do intend to contact certain people I know thru here and Topix on FB, just not ready to do so yet...
