Rather than have a new thread for every death of a political nobody, king of pop, reality TV tart or gay backing singer we should have one thread to encompass the lot.

Would save all this outpouring of fake grief from people who never knew the dead person in the first place, yet feel they have a right to comment on their life in the first place.

Not sure who to start with so will leave it up to someone on here who actually gives a sh*t.

Good idea. But rather than comment on each one, I would like to leave this all purpose tribute:

I never knew him/her/them (delete as applicable) but was touched by his/her/their (delete as applicable) music/humanity/roving hands (delete as applicable).

Never done this before
I 4-1 will mourn the death of the individual tribute thread. It provided comfort and purpose to those with too little else in their lives, and will be sadly missed. You're a cruel man RtP.

RIP.

I'm not sure if this is an attempt at a woosh or not but it looks like Stephen Gately from Boyzone has started the ball rolling for you, RtP, as he died over night at the age of 33. I'm no fan of him or Boyzone but to die in seemingly good spirits at such a young age is a bit of a shocker no matter who it is.

HA (alledgely)

i mean one of those sweeps where u pick a celeb and pay, like, 50p a week and the celebs names are put into individual envolopes and all the entrants write their own name on the envelope and are given the full list of names.

when one celeb on the list dies the envelopes are openned.
