I knew a man a long long time but I never knew him at all. Small in stature, big at heart but he always stood tall. In my mind he could do no wrong misunderstood all along. He worked hard all his live to get what he had. He was a little rough around the edges simple in mind but always had a kind eye for me. I will miss you Dad.
Two things to keep in mind:
- As a general rule, we don't want to be any more restrictive that is absolutely necessary.
- It isn't ok for people to go out of their way to try and inflame select individuals or entire groups of individuals out of some type of sport or meanness.
As for the honoring the dead, I don't see why it has to be a dead body/casket picture anyway. I know that's not how my father would want to be remembered. One can honor the dead with other pictures and with words. Yardog's sig has always stuck with me. If you want a way to honor the dead, that's the way to go.
i dont see the reason to honor ANY dead body.... If u feel so strong about Jesus Christ and Ronald Reagan to where u need to make it absolutely publically known, you should be on a religious or political message board
Goal for this year is dead now. I'll be lucky to get back on the bike by the end of the year.
Biking goal for this year is 4000. I need 11 miles a day to make it.

I really don't even notice the dead bodies and stuff
I don't pay attn to sigs/avis much. But people getting hurt feelings and thats understandable.
RIP DARRENT WILLIAMS
RIP DAMIEN NASH

Actually, if we simply allow dead bodies in sigs, which the minority want, and tell the majority turn off sig images if you don't want to see it, then we will IN FACT be doing what you claim, and that is appeasing the minority.
Not sure why you are locked onto this appeasing the minority thing, when the whole reason I have the town hall discussions is so that I can get a feel for what the community as a whole, or failing that, a clear majority wants.
Excellent job explaining, especially the poll portion.
For clarities sake, while it is acceptablt to post a picture of a casket or tomb, my assumption is it would be unacceptable to post the same of an open casket viewing?
For instance the posting of a picture of an open casket, whether showing the corpse therein or not, is unacceptable?
Would this ruling then prohibit the posting of pictures of those passed before they were gone from this world?
