So, Buckley snuffs it, right?

Here's my prediction on how the comments in the Metafilter thread** will go:

this will end well

From zero to ad hominem in 2 comments! Great work, internets.

Typical. Wish for Mefites to respect the dead in one hand…

So, we’re eulogizing the man who wanted to put gays in concentration camps?

Oh, let’s not get hyperbolic, maidenmoonbat. He just wanted to lock up AIDS patients! It’s not like he was some paranoid reactionary who figured sodomites lurked around every corner waiting to abduct our children.

Oh wait. He was.

**if you are unfamiliar with Metafilter, you could go there and search for "Buckley". I am confident it's already there.

Hee. I concur.

As much as I love to hate, I think it is wholly inappropriate to celebrate someone's death. Everyone, however much they create enemies, has family and friends who are quite sensitive at the person's passing. While we may disagree on fundamental issues, I can't support mocking someone's death.

You see, I am neither mocking his death, nor mourning him. I'm mocking Metafilter, and the way in which I know they'll deal with it.

Jesus, I figured someone might miss the point, but I never thought it would be you.

furthermore, if you look at the names I gave my characters above, you'll see that I'm wielding the satire pretty fairly in both directions.

I have no idea what "metafilter" is. I didn't read the names - just skimmed. Glad it was some sort of joke.

Well, I'm glad we've cleared that up. Fortunately, I'm familiar with your dialect, so I know the "sorry for jumping on you before grasping your point" was silent :)

Pretty damn close, actually. You missed the people taking shots at Bush for not being a real conservative.

Hooray! I'm saving it for this afternoon when work gets slow. I plan to make popcorn.

That is frikkin perfect.

I tried to log in about a month ago, and my account has expired. I didn't bother trying to reactivate it. Should I?
Feb. 28th, 2008 03:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)

Eh. I don't know if I would bother. The main reason I still maintain my account is because I like to be able to ask questions on AskMe from time to time. But there are other venues for that sort of thing.
