Iím not sure what this achieves on an RIP thread. Do you think we need an additional thread about abortion?

Not to compare this place to the cesspool (or Eden, depending on the day) that is Reddit, but I think the Reddit thread on her death under the news sub handled this properly:  posters were allowed to criticize her legislation, her votes, her political agenda, but they were not permitted to openly celebrate or praise her objectively tragic demise.  

It's a very thin line, but it's a line that CAN be established.  

There's honestly never any need to have an RIP thread on a forum like this or Reddit. Not every piece of news needs a comments section. Does anyone think her family or friends are going to browse either and be heartened by a bunch of deadpan "RIP" comments? It's just an opportunity for scum to get off on their fetish for saying socially unacceptable things without social consequences.

Honestly agree with this. Unless it's a major news event, like a former President or the Queen of England or something, these threads don't serve much of a purpose.

RIP threads arenít my cup of tea (although Iíve probably commented on a few) but people seem to do them for a reason.
