You see, Granite City Topix was an anonymous posting board, similar to this, but didn’t require a sign in.
There was one particular entity that used to wail and gnash it’s teeth at local politicians (particularly Hagnauer, particularly about his compensation, or pensions, or what the school superintendent got paid).
They’d post redundant information multiple times. Using multiple screen names to make it look like people agreed with “it”. You can understand how sad that was!
It was tremendously boring. So much so that people began ignoring the majority of the posts and chalking it up to sour grapes and jealousy of what this person hadn’t accomplished.
Most sincere apologies for confusing this deeply pedestrian entity with you.
