    But much brighter for his having been here. This is how we grow.

    Very sad, but he was 83 after all! We should all live so long and contribute so much!

    I believe you are dishonest in your proclaimed sentiment.


    How old are you?

    There was. And it's so fine to watch it in action. Now I have to go watch Young Frankenstein again...

    @Beer: Be nice, Fraggle is even older than I am, and that's scary.

    • One would think the point that this manner of post is a bad idea somewhat obvious, but since it isn't, here's a reminder.
    Fraggle is an asshole.

    Okay Beer... I'm going to give you a shot at explaining yourself with this one, because my knee-jerk reaction is to slap an infraction on you and delete the previous few posts... one because, what the fuck brought that on, two because it's totally out of place.

    One - if you actually believe Fraggle is being somehow dishonest with that sentiment (and, lets be honest - Gene Wilder DID live a long life, I hesitate to say "good" only because he did have his demons that seemed to haunt him at times.), why would you feel this, a thread memorializing Gene Wilder, is the appropriate place to call him out on it? Would you do this at a wake/funeral/viewing?

    Second - the "Fraggle is an asshole" bit... what brought that on... and again, how is that even remotely appropriate for a memorial type thread?

    Finally - you determined that, because he did not respond to your initial question within the span of... what... 52 minutes... that he is apparently a coward? Did it cross your mind he may have been otherwise occupied, not online, or had not even seen the question?

    I'm trying, quite desperately, to grasp at SOME rational reason for your actions here... and I'm not coming up with one.

    Mod Note

    Frankly, he should not give you the time or effort in responding to you after your latest outburst.

    You have been rude and offensive and continue to be so. Most of all, you seem to believe that he owes you an answer to your very inappropriate question. Inappropriate, not just for the content of your posts in this thread, but the very context of this thread. He owes you nothing. He certainly does not owe a response to your so called question, nor do you deserve a response from him.

    So here is how this will play out. You either apologise for your inappropriate comment, but also for behaving like a rude and spoiled child, or you face moderation.

    You're not a psychologist.
