    Maybe it is time that people realised that it is ok to be sad about someone's death - even if they weren't a close relative or a friend. Emotions are ok you know...

    on newsnight the other day, one of the commentators said that it was almost as if wacko had really died in the early 90's, and all we've had since is remnants of the performer he once was....

    i'm just not a particular fan of his solo work, it's undoubted he was icon of the 80's, and some of his stuff was listenable....but that's about it.

    I find it far more interesting the jackson five era, and the child superstar. That's when he was at his peak.....it went downhill from there. So why anyone should care very much about a 50-year old kidult millionaire who spent money like a billionaire is beyond me.

    The man has only been dead 48hrs or so - what do you actually expect the media to be doing? Reporting on stolen ducks from a village pond?
    They've been stolen? I demand a full national inquiry and insurances from the Prime Minister himself that those ducks will be returned unharmed - or on my dinner plate!

    Ooops, sorry - had no intention of actually reviving this thread. Just wanted to take the **** out of someone actually bothering to -rep the comment. (and maybe earn more -rep in the process )

    Thanks ICT_Guy

    Seriously - I'm not complaining about neg rep. In fact I thought neg rep for that comment was amusing. To then give the reason "not funny..." - well that is plain hilarious.

    It brighten my day and I truely want to thank the person involved. (also *** them off a bit because I'm sure I'm not taking the -rep in the manor it was given )

    Yes, I edited the bad words, but no, it wasn't me that gave the negative rep!

    It's a sad day for the '-rep' button, used and abused at its peak!

    RIP '-rep' button, we're sorry we can't agree sometimes!
