Words are JUST words. PEOPLE are jerks at times, stop being sensitive and get over it.
If you don't have freedom of speech you have nothing.
And sickening videos that target people when they are at one of the lowest points in their lives...
Why do you feel it necessary to defend the right to target people with hate and malice when they lose a loved one?
"Oh, don't take away our right to post disgusting videos and Facebook pages that make a mockery of a families loss...” Are you serious? If you
read back through this thread you will see why I find this so atrocious. Our family had this happen to a close relative. Have you lost someone only to
see foul remarks posted on a Facebook page THE DAY AFTER? I doubt it. We hadn’t even buried them and already we had to put up with that kind of
filth. All on a Facebook page a friend of theirs had created. Personally I dislike Facebook (and the like) tribute pages. As I’ve mentioned before,
I find them trashy and don’t think they are respectful at all but others use them so it’s out of my hands.
Stay off the internet then, some might say. Well why should I have to? Oh I see - it’s because people like you want everyone to have the right to be
able to do this kind of thing. People like you who have no understanding of the hurt it creates. People like you who think it’s a harmless little
joke. Yes I could have avoided going there, but when a relative notified me of certain comments that appeared there I went to see what the fuss was
about. I wish I hadn’t.
Personally I don't have a problem with people being able to say what they believe; I have a problem with unnecessary, vulgar attacks on the recently
departed and their families by a complete stranger who didn't even know them. Until anyone has experienced that, I don’t believe they are qualified
to state such rubbish.
Again, I believe people should be able to say what they like, I don’t believe in strangers attacking people they don’t even know at one of the
saddest points of their lives with obscene posts and videos for their own sick little giggles. Sad little losers.
