    Well, I was focusing on that post because it's the one that has provoked this specific reaction, and if it comes down to the way it's said there's hardly anything worth pointing at in Biff's post, which is just information.

    Still, you are treating this as shoehorning and disrespectful when it may be plain and simply preference, focus or lack of exposition. "I will always remember him from this Simpsons episode" is still a valid reaction. I mean, just the idea that not referencing a celebrity's main body of work is disrespectful is something that is taking me a lot to assume, let alone find it reasonable. I don't see how that has anything to do with disrespect. And at worst, it produces innocuous and ignorable posts.

    Basically I'm absolutely lost with this controversy. Why is it even controversy.

    it was the one that provoked this reaction (biffwestwood's post in this thread about kirk douglas, of course) because that same user makes the same kind of posts every time a celebrity dies... it's not even celebrities that have been on the simpsons, like with prince all he said was 'WELP so sad we'll never see that simposns episode now'. it's disrespectful and unnecessary to just rush into a thread and yammer on about the fucking simpsons, and nothing else, without fail

    If you are talking about other threads, then it's getting way more off-topic than it first looked. Damn. Poor thread.

    By the way, I finally found some of the posts you guys mention (it was hard, specially because there is another Prince thread that was made before), and yes, they can be considered uncalled for. Disrespectful still sounds too harsh to me. Whatever, got it. Thanks for the explanation.

    nope. If you read any of the posts in this thread I think we've made it clear that biffwestwood's post was the straw that broke the camel's back and not the only thing we're responding to.

    "Here" as in "this thread"? I have read it.

    That doesn't make this less of an overreaction. And damn it if the straw that broke the camel's back is the most innocuous post Biff could have made with a Simpsons reference in it. The camel's back was already broken at that point, I guess.

    Then again, I don't see any point on further discussing here. I have acknowledged the situation, and everything it has behind with the information I got from you guys. I just don't share or echo the need for this reaction. Plain and simple.

    like literally every time there's a celebrity dies or even just general event thread biffwestwood and a number of other pathetic users here have to bust out a fantastic simpsons connection. i'd say it's time to stop that shit by now. i don't think you even have a say because you barely even post here or know about it. you're posting from the outside looking in and it's pretty dumb that you're trying to tell us how to feel about this

    you're missing the fact that you decided to jump right into an ongoing discussion. you're right, the camel's back was already broken, because these posts have been happening for a while now.

    Okay, you can stop playing the "you don't know the shit that happens here" card now, I have already reached my conclusion.

    And assuming that I'm forcing you all to change your mindset and attitude just because I display my disagreement with how things have been going here is quite the lovely assumption.

    Come on, let's just talk about Kirk Douglas now.

    no. this thread was garbage the moment it was made. this was far more interesting and you can't just change the subject with I'VE MADE UP MY MIND.

    Fair point there. Then let's find something else to shoehorn

    What I don't get is why anyone would choose to remember someone like Lady Gaga just because she started in a godawful modern Simps ep, instead of her contributions to popular music and the achievements she's made because of it. "RIP Miss Gaga, your Simpsons episode may have been terrible but I'm sure you were a decent person anyway"

    Also, I think Mr. Douglas will most likely live to 100

    I don't really chose where I remember someone from. I just haven't seen any of their work, only on The Simpsons. So natrually I'll remember them from it. Although I probably won't acknowledge it at all. But remember someone from Simpsons isn't really disrespectful.

    Is it pointless to bring it up in their death threads or some other thread regarding them? Yeah
    Do people have all right to post it anyway? Yes.

    You don't think he will be remembered more for his Simpsons commentary?
