Topix is a social swamp, where MJhaters gather at the cesspool and post salacious allegations and perpetuate falsehoods with impunity. We request the MJGlobal family members to participate in this urgent call to action by Sabine Faustin. Please sign her petition, but more importantly WRITE to the advertisers of Topix, Attorney General and Topix bigwigs.
For years the internet community has been up in arms, complaining about the forums on Topix.com which allow people to use their site anonymously to abuse, slander, harass and engage in illegal activities such as drug sales, cyber stalking others and exploiting people, even minors.
Despite successful lawsuits against anonymous persons abusing others through the Topix forums; despite a disingenuous agreement between Topix CEO, Chris Tolles and over 30 Attorney Generals to clean up their forums; despite the ever growing, very public denouncement of Topix.com’s toxic forums; despite testimony from victims of Topix.com, some who have had members of their family tormented to the point of suicide; some who have lost their jobs; some who have been forced to move or had significant relationships end because of the negative lies spread in the Topix forums — despite all of the many people who have had their lives destroyed because of the non-existent moderation of the Topix.com forums, for Topix it continues to be business as usual.
It is business as usual for Topix because Topix only cares about their success, the traffic to their site and the money that is generated from advertising dollars.
So, therefore, we the people (whom Topix claims to be the voice of), are petitioning the advertisers of Topix.com to end their association with such an unethical, irreputable organization and voicing our intention to boycott their businesses if they do not.
SAMPLE LETTER for ADVERTISERS
I have noticed advertising for your business on the website, Topix.com.
Unfortunately, Topix is not a reputable site that reflects well upon your product. Topix has been on the receiving end of extreme negative backlash for years due to the abusive and illegal activities ongoing in their forums. As I write this your product is associated with a business that allows drugs sales, weapons & sex trafficking, bullying and exploitation on a daily basis. The forums on Topix are full of defamatory, vulgar and libelous attacks by anonymous people.
In all honesty, your advertising dollars would be better spent elsewhere and basically I have no interest in doing business with a company that does business with Topix. I feel the only choice I have is to boycott your business and I will tell all of my friends and associates to do so as well.
I would rather tell them that you have taken a stance against Topix and their unethical policies! PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR ASSOCIATION!
