OK, you've obviously put a celebrity's name (let's call him Kenny) into Google or some such, and seen the DeathList pop up.

'What's this ?' you say, 'Kenny dead ?' or 'This looks intriguing' and so you've ended up here ... only to find the list wasn't what you expected and we seem to be predicting the death of Kenny.

'My God, they've killed Kenny!- How dare they!' And now you want to tell the list owner how much of a bastard he is, how dare he, that he isn't fit to be a dog turd on the bottom of Kenny's shoe, that Kenny is so fabulous that everything Kenny produces is worthy of worship, even his farts. Etc, etc.

So instead of being irate in random places all over this list:
a ) Firstly, think of a nice nickname to go by - Guest isn't very interesting really is it ? Something that proves how loyal you are to Kenny. Say like 'Kenny's Butt Boy'
b ) Vent your spleen here. Go on tell us we're all evil. We have heard it before you know.
c ) Then go read what the purpose of the list is ... really, we're not willing or wishing Kenny dead, just think there's an odds-on chance (or not) that'll he'll keel over sometime soon. Probably because he's old, disease ridden, into drugs, gets drunk a lot, or drives too fast. Or he's a terrorist with US Gov after him. Or some other dangerous sport.

Now, do you understand ? No ? Oh well, post away anyway ...

You indicate in this posting that there is some place on your website to read about the purpose of your website. I don't seem to be able to locate it. Could you tell me where I can find it so that I may, indeed, determine exactly what purpose this site is attempting to achieve? thank you so much. :(

Well, the main page gives a pretty good description...

And this one a brief description...

I found the list in such a way - checking out the status of Charlie Drake - and frankly I've had more fun on Death List than chasing the little funster from a bygone era to ground.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Well thanks for at least posting in the right thread Mr Hate - we'll look forward to your broadcasts - but until then maybe try lightening up a little ;)

Indeed, and how dare nearly every quality newspaper have a page "glorifying the deaths of famous people" on a daily basis?

Breathe, relax, and click the "BACK" key on your browser. It's not rocket science.
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Interesting then that you've decided to make another 6 posts (so far) under other names then ... Saffron / Carlos / Burt / Margaret R / Kavorkian / Gaynickcarterfan ?

I am disgusted with the contents of this site. Such sites are a disgrace to our society and have no moral purpose. I would strongly suggest that you discontinue your revolting "predictions" of death and take up a healthier and more productive hobby, rather than spending your lives obsessing over which "celebrity" will be the next to pass away. One assumes my complaint will fall on deaf ears, judging by your responses to previous "irate visitors"; nevertheless I feel you must accept that this site is, at the very least, an extremely strange way to spend one`s time - at worst, it is plain sickening.

Mmmmmm. Just a coincidence you have the exact same IP address as prophet of doom then? (written in lower case) :sicktherm:

OK, you`ve noted that "prophet of doom" (lower case) is the same person as the "irate visitor" - and how, exactly, does that disprove my comments about the pointlessness / weirdness of this list ? Is someone with two different nicknames not allowed to complain or something ?

I await a sensible response to my complaints about this site.

Cheers,

Prophet of doom.

Yes but you made a prediction of a death, and then you choose to complain.
Why?

I think the main paradox here is that if this site is disgusting, wierd etc etc then why join in?
Added to which, I don't think that this is a disgusting etc site compared to quite a few others readily available on the net.

Here's how I would summarise:
Step 1: Get a list of old/ill people.
Step 2: Discuss which ones are closer to dying
Step 3: Create list of 50 people who you think will die this year

It's not like we have a street party whenever one of them dies, it's just that the majority of contributers have a greater awareness of the transient nature of life and appreciation of their own (and everyone elses) mortality.
Criticism (constructive) isn't dismissed, but surely by posting and contributing you are undermining your own argument that the site shouldn't be posted on or contributed to?
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on
