Welcome Topix Readers

25Sep09

Letter to our readers:

Topix has been removed from ConnPost.com .

It is clear that readers have opinions they like to express, but it has also become clear that some are not capable of having a civilized discussion on the issues.

It is unfortunate that the behavior of a few has forced us to take this action.

We will be launching a new commenting system in the near future which will require users to register in order to make comments.

In the meantime, readers are welcome to comment on our newsroom blog, Connecticut Postings.

It’s extremely unfortunate that the Post made this decision during Stratford’s heated election season. However, it is their bandwidth and their decision to make.

We always welcome new readers and posters to this blog. There are really only two rules. This first is to keep the same person from appearing that somebody else agrees with him and the 2nd is simply civilized.

Rules: Anonymity will be maintained unless there are multiple usernames from the same IP address. Irrelevant or profane posts may be edited for content. If you wish to contact the editor privately you may do so at: jezebel.anonymous@gmail.com

    There are really only two rules. This first is to keep the same person from appearing that somebody else agrees with him and the

    2nd is simply civilized.
    IS THIS A NEW RULE?
    IF BLOGGERS kept CIVILIZED, topix would not be affected.

    multiple usernames from the same IP address.
    FAIR

    Irrelevant or profane posts may be edited for content
    PROFANE IS PRETTY OBJECTIVE
    RELEVANCE is SUBJECTIVE
    – However moving unedited content is reasonable.

    George,

    If you would actually take some time and look at the screen instead of just typing, you would have seen the rules back in 2008. They are still there, by the way.

    “PROFANE IS PRETTY OBJECTIVE
    RELEVANCE is SUBJECTIVE”

    Once again, I am the Decider. You must admit, I have been pretty liberal with you.

    I think I made fair notice of the difference.

    It is your blog.
    Topix belong to CT. POST.

    I created and never used my blog.

    George,

    I don’t think of it that way. It is not MY blog. It’s ours. I just tidy up around here.

    Jeze:
    “I don’t think of it that way. It is not MY blog. It’s ours.
    I just tidy up around here.”


    George –
    Jeze, are you or are you not the sole arbitor of relevance
    and sole person who can edit by deleting ot moving posts?

    Jeze, did you create (THANK YOU) this blog, because the
    PLAY WRITE retired from blog (rather than losing town job?)?

    Ergo, I believe that qualified you as this being you blog,
    despite your generousity of spirit and patience of a SAINT.
    (Happy YOM KIPPUR)

    I believe many of my post and directly and indriectly related to:
    1 – Original Topic of blog string
    2 – Topic written recently by a blogger
    3 – Governmental or Business relationships of topics, since many
    Budget revenues and costs and economic or town issues have
    direct influence from Feds and State.

    EXAMPLES:

    George,

    (Happy YOM KIPPUR)

    Yom Kippur is the Jewish day of repentance, considered to be the holiest and most solemn day of the year. Its central theme is atonement and reconciliation. Eating, drinking, bathing, cosmetics, wearing leather (including shoes), and conjugal relations are prohibited. Fasting – total abstention from all food and drink – begins a bit before sundown and ends after nightfall the following day.

    It’s really not so much fun. BUT, you can try “Have an easy fast.” next year.

    Jeze,

    Mar dig ra s
    Mardi Gras – is FAT TUESDAY, or the day before ASH WEDNESDAY
    and the 40 days of LENT.

    Perhaps it was LENT from Je wish beliefs?

    There are some who choose to believe the Jewish religion is a form
    of Egyptian belief in RA.
    Hence RA BBI is much like RA BEES
    And the ANGLICIZED version of the cruci fiction involves BA RABBIs?

    They believe Christos is a translation of the term the chosen one
    and some choose to think it is a form of the “Book of Job.”

    Some claim Muhammed and Luther were creations of Jewish people.
    Note the dates of Luther, after the Spanish Inquisition?

    I tend to prefer the Mensch view of all religions and actually try to
    practice the 10 commandments and golden rule, and my beliefs are
    probably closer to Protestant or even certain Masonic than formal
    following of the Sacraments, including confession and communion.

    Like Milton’s Paradise Regained or the last Godfather movie, I believe
    the good people should control the world and history.
    I further note that even BAD PEOPLE have CODES and RULES among
    their groups.
    While it is easy to lie, cheat, steal, and worse to skin us suckers, at the
    ultimate decision, following those who double cross others, leads to…..

    George,

    Have an easy fast.

    Jeze,
    Have a fast fast. 🙂
    Shalom
