    Does this poll actually say "Is it okay to speak..."??

    Is this a trick question?

    How is it a trick question?

    'OKay" would suggest something that is acceptable, while "Can" would suggest ability to do so.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Speaking ill of the dead is usually a direct result of the person's actions during their life. Actions have consequences. I see no reason to pull my punches simply because someone is dead. An asshole is an asshole is an asshole. A dead asshole is still an asshole.

    One of the best funeral services I've ever participated in was a Quaker ceremony. The guy who died had been a poet with mental illness. People were refreshingly honest about how difficult a person he'd been in his life.

    It was a real healing ceremony for all involved. The guy had committed suicide.

    There are always going to be people who love scumbags. Stanly Williams who murdered four innocent(notice I said "innocent" these people were not gang bangers) people in cold blood people loved him and for around 20-30 years tried to help him weasel out of his punishment. Nazi scum love Hitler. Poor people who are brided are going to love a scumbag.

    You weren't alone in that, Cap. Rush was saying that over the weekend after Fidel got sick, all the white birds disappeared from the Miami pet stores. There wasn't a single white bird to be found in all of the greater Miami area!

    Yep, it's okay to trash people anytime you want and for any reason you want. They don't even have to be bad or obnoxious. Even good people are fair game.

    1,Its never okay to speak ill of those who are hospitalized or just died.
    Regardless if it someone like Hitler, child molester or serial killer or someone else that there is a general consensus on that is a scumbag.

    2.Its okay as long as everybody generally agrees that individual was a despicable person.
    An example of someone everyone would generally agree was a despicable person would be like a mass murdering dictator,terrorist, serial killer, child rapist and etc.


    3.Its okay as long as you think that person was despicable. An example of someone you think is despicable could be a politician, political commentator/pundit, political activist or someone who has wronged you in the past and this would also include those whom everybody generally agrees was despicable.

    4.other.


    I pick option 3.If you found that person to be so despicable why hold back just because they are in the hospital or just died? Does their injury or the fact they died somehow erase all the **** that person did that made you view that person as a scumbag? For example the only bad thing about Hitler killing himself is that we did not get a change to hang him ourselves.
    you have to define "speak ill".

    ill in this case would be defined as a hostile or unkindly. I guess these can be example of unkindly words.

    For a dead person-

    good riddance to human garbage

    glad he is gone

    the world is a better place without him

    I hope he died before spreading his seed

    I hope Satan is shoving a pitchfork up his ass

    I hope those 72 virgins that Akbar is getting is those ,Trekkie and starwars nerds Everquest and dungeons and dragons nerds

    I hope he suffered before he died.

    Singing ding don the mother ****ers dead in a wizard of oz tune.

    I want to piss and or **** on his grave.

    He deserved to die




    Someone in the hospital-

    hope he croaks

    too bad his injuries were not life threatening

    I hope he gets worse

    I hope he suffers

    pretty soon Satan will be shoving a pitchfork up his ass

    Anybody know where his grave is going to be? we can charge people to piss on his grave when he is buried

    he deserves to die
