There is nothing to keep them from doing just that. Someone's reputation can be ruined in a minute and someone has been thrown off of TOTV more than ten times doing things just like that on Topix.

I don't think that everyone being guest is going to work.

AND although I posted yesterday, I will not post again. So if you read something with my name on it over in political, it isn't me. I will read, but I won't post.
To GRACIEs point...there are already two posts that are simply drive by trolls. You would think that on here, most would be adults, but guess that is asking a lot of adults to act as adults.

The posts are still there and Gracie is correct...that garbage pile called TOPIX exists this same way and many of your neighbors on here avail themselves of that place to bash posters from here.

I wrote to admin how they will "police" this area because what is beginning to happen is that if you disagee with a posters view point, you make immature remarks. Not sure what the intent is but that will grow over time in that the remarks will tend to get more personal. With no ability to report posts, it is a wide open area for these childish trolls.

Guess I opted out of the old forum, although I don't remember doing so.

I have to admit that just guests is worrisome to me. It is an open invite for trolls and, sadly, the bullies here (and, yes, Virginia, there are some here). I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

For general information...

There is a post by ADMIN in political stating the use of GUEST is on a test basis and if it needs to be changed, they will change it.

Also states the reason for the GUEST postings, which is very depressing in that why do adults act like children and thus cause grief to others who are charged with keeping any forum or anyTHING a place where ADULTS can go ?

How about 2 political forums, one that leans to the left and one that leans to the right.

And suppose:
You could only be in one and not the other.
And you couldn't lurk.
And you couldn't go back and change your mind.

So you would have to ask yourself "Do I want to be with like minded people or do I want to be with people who have opposing views?"

I know my answer.
This is a hypothetical.

Will the new political forum last 6 months?

If someone makes a post and signs it with someone else's name to disparage them it would be an instant ban. Topix doesn't ban anyone.

It's not that we couldn't see who made the post.

Why don't we try it and if we need to make changes we can.

Thanks in advance,

TOTV Team

Everyone should be able to see the political forum at the bottom of the first section on the home page. If you cannot please notify us.

Best Regards,
