    Unless the deceased poster had RL friends who also posted here to confirm the death, there's no sure way to find out. This is the internet, so fellow message board geeks such as ourselves would likely be the last people to find out... if we find out. We'd probably be left hanging.

    Why are you people giving YOTS and Fluke all the credit? Wattowatta did it long before them, and I think there was someone even before Wattowatta.

    there's also the case of padma_amidala55 (i think that was her name) who claimed that her fiance and best friend died on september 11. while that's not quite the same as faking your own death, it is extracting sympathy in a really ****ty way.

    Personally, I'm not so sure I'd want anyone to know. There might be much rejoycing... ;)

    But in all seriousness, I HATE grieving or mourning. Hate hate hate hate it! I wouldn't want anyone to do that over me, ever. It's why I don't really want a funeral. Rather have a celebration as my 'last party thrown for my friends and family on this Earth'.

    Rather out go out in happy tears than sad ones. So I dunno if I would have anyone informed. I wouldn't want to bring anyone here sadness of that nature.

    But, it brings up interesting thoughts about how my family would inform many of my friends - even ones in town. I don't keep their phone numbers or addresses in a book, more like, scattered about written on various pieces of paper, envelopes, ect. that I oft time lose.

    I actually started a topic the same as this in the JCC, many, many, months ago.

    Is it me or is this particular post and the conversation it has garnered slightly tasteless, what with the actual subject of the thread itself?
