    Sure but they're never going to read any of this.

    Still not sure whose feelings we're talking about here. This board is obviously not full of Whitney Houstons family and I doubt very much fans either - although I'm sure the media furore will have a few people believing they are for a day or two.

    It's not about my sympathy or lack of sympathy for her, although i do agree she had everything and pissed it up the wall and that is a very human frailty but that doesn't make me a bad person for joking about it. All this "respect the dead" bullshit is very religious in its sentimentality - I'm sorry but respecting someone when they're dead is probably the least useful time to actually respect them and trying to paint pictures of people as saints when they weren't is highly misleading and in worse taste than actually making jokes about it.

    so what you're saying is, having achievements in life makes for more impact when you die, than not having achievements in life?

    i never suspected.. :loco:

    This board is indexed by Google crawler spiders regularly and available for everyone to read, sure the probablility of some fan or family member clicking on a link to "ultimatemetal.com" is quite low, but still the probablility is higher than 0.

    What i am trying to say is that it is not a good thing to do to laugh and joke about someones death.

    It should be simple to understand.

    Even if you don't write or say anything, but find it funny only in your thoughts, you should ask yourself why, because it is definitely not normal.

    Tell this to any psychologist: "Someone died and it made me laugh" and he will invite you to lie on the couch and talk about it...

    don't tell me you're surprised. the reason is obvious - houston was undoubtedly a source of inspiration for many, while deaths in syria is just a number.

    laughing to the sole fact someone's dead and laughing to a joke about the dead are two completely different things.

    It was just to give perspective on people's reaction to this shit. It's totally to be expected, I never said otherwise.

    Exactly. Same thing happened when the people were standing up to the theocracy in Iran and being brutalized for it. It was all over the news and people all over were up in arms about it.

    Then Micheal Jackson died and the news ignored the plight of the Iranian people. Sorry folks we have a short attention span and he was the king of pop and all.

    As for Whitney Houston, the sneap board never fails to amaze me. Is there anything we will not argue about?

    That's right, I obviously have deep seated psychological issues that I need to speak to a shrink about, thanks Lucien. Maybe then I can be a normal part of society and shed a silent tear for every tragedy that befalls the celebrity world. Maybe my making light of a subject is in reality just a coping mechanism for the sorrow that tears at my anguished heart - I do hope so as I really want to fulfill my innermost desire to be an intrinsic part of a tabloid driven society where we idolise dead drug addicts.
