Its because they want that person to be gone.
    So, if the words aren't going to reach the person either way......then why attack said person to people who may happen to like them? As that would be equally pointless.

    You wouldn't find me crooning my satisfaction publicly. You wouldn't find me celebrating his death with anything more than reverent decorum.

    Besides, if I have any displeasure with someone, I pretty much get it all out in the open while they are still alive. There isn't too much to say once they die that I haven't already said.

    Basically to voice my opinion of what a piece of **** that person is.Its no different than someone voicing their opinion on how they think someone is a saint.

    As that would be equally pointless.
    It could be argued that going to political forums to debate topics is pointless since you don't really change minds. But people do it anyways because they get some sort of satisfaction with sharing or voicing opinions on various issues.

    It's perfectly okay to speak ill of the dead, disabled, dying, or departed from the room, if you don't like them.

    Frankly, it doesn't make a lot of sense to speak ill of them if you do like them.

    It's even okay to speak ill of them if they're right in front of you, but in that case it's probably best if you're bigger than they are.

    This is what everyone should sing when Robert KKK Byrd finally dies (soon enough is way too late for me):

    Thank you very much!
    Thank you very much!
    That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
    I may sound Double-Dutch
    But my delight is such
    I feel as if a losing war's been won for me
    And if I had a flag I'd hang my flag out
    To add a sort of final victory touch
    But since I left my flag at home
    I'll simply have to say
    Thank you very, very, very much!

    I don't know if I'm bigger than you, but I speak ill of you.

    Limbaugh Calls Democrats Health Care Plan an "Insult" to Kennedy's Memory - Political Punch
    And here's the context:
    "The Left is exploiting him – his death and his legacy – and they are going to do it, as predicted, to push health care through," Limbaugh said.
    Limbaugh said he was cracking up this morning on the mainstream media's coverage of Kennedy's passing and said that his listeners are frustrated over the "slobbering" media.
    And of course, Rush said some nice things as well:
    "Ted Kennedy's passing is a powerful reminder of the respect and dignity of the intensely personal will to live that we all possess," Limbaugh said.
    I was just surprised that ABC was where I found the real gist of what that show was about.
