Is that supposed to be funny?

Shame on you, DeadVim.

I was there when he made his debut for Leeds and say him play for us hundreds of times, he always worked hard and was a great player for us. He seemed to be turning things around as Wales manager, wonder what make him kill himself, so sad.

I feel so sorry for his wife and kids, that must be such a hard thing to live with

Nice avi Nicky

There was a minute's applause for him before the Swansea game yesterday and Shay Given was in tears...brought a lump to my throat

RIP Gary.

I got karma for it, there are some that find it amusing.

There have been plenty of other similar responses to famous people dying, maybe we should go back and ban retrospectively?

Maybe you could do it since you seem so keen.

I saw a mod making similar jokes over in the Aussie Barbie forum.

Maybe you should sort out between yourselves where the line is going to be drawn before imposing it on the rest of us?

Only after a mod made a similar joke over there.

You lot work out where the line is drawn then impose it.

Look, the difference between this and any number of other 'dark humour' posts following a famous person's death is very small.

The hypocrisy is staggering.

I have come to the conclusion that Pig's Bladder Kicker enthusiasts are somehow sacrosanct.

And I have not made any personal attacks, which is more than I can say for some people.

Think about it.

It seems to me from the consensus of views expressed so far after your comments that what you think is OK does not seem to mesh in with what the other folks posting in this forum think is OK.

But if you want people to think of you as a thoughtless insensitive twat then carry on. I guess the mod(s) for this forum (whoever that is) will ultimately decide where the line is, thats what usually happens here...
