People who just post "My thoughts & prayers go to the victims, stay safe" and nothing else in a thread discussing a tragedy really wind me up.
Its such a social media based brain dead sheeple kind of comment...
...that really has nothing to do with the victims and their families.
Its all about getting attention for themselves so people can pat them on the back.
I seriously think its bordering on off topic if they have nothing else to say and should be removed.

by amazing co-incidence - i had a real life convo on this topic last week with a " thoughts and prayers " cultist
i stumped him with my take on it :
" thoughts and prayes " might make you feel better about your failure to do anything tangible , but i prefer a £25 donation to the charity with the best reccord of low admin overheads and effective feild work
he spat his dummy and refused to speak to me for the rest of the day

people have a right to think and say what they like.
Save it for Facebook or the chitchat forum if you have nothing else constructive to add to the thread.
