You find other people's deaths funny. Please don't feel like you have to inject your witticisms in every last post about somebody dying horribly, however.

of the internet that likes to use it as someplace to receive the attention you so obviously lack outside. Even more telling is the fact that you know your opinions are worthless, yet you clearly relish the negative attention they receive.

Your own screen name shows an almost pathetic sense of self loathing that probably comes from a lifetime of bad relationships, unfulfilled career aspirations and a contempt for humanity that will more than likely assure you end up dying alone in a room where a nurse will mispronounce your last name as that sheet goes over your body.

You must like belonging to that subset of the internet that likes to use it as someplace to receive the attention you so obviously lack outside.

He used to be, but then he got banned from that subset of the internet for being an obnoxious, "edgy" poster. Then he switched names, came back, and got banned again. For the same reason. Now the dance is repeating here.

A moderator has only a few tools at his disposal with which to deal with it.

Did he ever return? No, he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
He may bob forever ‘neath the Charles of Boston
He’s the man who never returned.

Yes, yes, taking the orange line to Hell with Daniel Doctoroff as my seat mate. He'll spend the whole trip explaining how he knows all about how to get into Heaven because he's been reincarnated SIX times.

really feel bad that adam has to step in and scold idiotic posters who think they are funny but are really sad attention seekers. if you think you are funny go do stand up. let's try to keep adam from feeling like he has to step in like a teacher dealing with class clowns. he obviously wants to keep this a free forum but all you idiots with your stupid jokes seems to be wearing on adam who has done a great job keeping this site as such a great source of useful news and useful information for all of us. grow up folks. go away trolls. rip guy who died in the river today.

Shush. Different people may have different coping mechanisms for confronting death, but gallows humor is verboten on the Internet nowadays. You might upset someone! Only sanctimonious solemnity is allowed.

Gallows humor is not repeating the same basic idea on every single post time after time after time.

On these posts about someone killed, facing life-threatening injuries, or had something else truly awful happen to them... how about deleting the comments that are hurtful to the friends/family of the victim, with no apparent merit to them (just trolling)?
