Re: Are you really any better?

This thread is an offshoot of this thread here. Some of the posts about Amy Winehouse were rather judgemental, but I didn't want to deal with the matter over there and derail an already rather touchy thread, not least because I'd already received a really rather unpleasant PM from a disgruntled member in response to an innocuous post of sympathy I'd made there.

Of course, it's inconceivable that I might want to explore a moral conundrum without an ulterior purpose, as I'm obviously a complete wanker, so you're all correct. I'm up to something.

What an utter bastard I am, eh?

Ahh, I see now ... it is just a round-about, convoluted way for you to get back publicly at the sender of the PM, DB (and I think I know who it was)
No, it isn't. Never mind.

Just mark me down as "a ****ing ****" and go about your business, eh?

Oh dear, where is MN? Sounds like you need a stiff drink and a nice back rub

I don`t think Assassin meant you with his post . He is to nice for that
Thank you, Cannut.
I was so embarrassed at posting something cringe-making on a public forum that, even though I was hurt by Assassin's perceived criticism, I decided I deserved the attack.
Assassin is obviously a perfect gentleman because he kindly sent me a personal apology even though, as it appears, his remark was not aimed at me.
In future I'll try to use what little addled brain I have left before making an idiot of myself.

Re: Are you really any better?

This thread has turned into something of a train wreck.

Never mind. Sunday's no day to be thinking about our moral outlook on life, is it?

A famous pop singer has died*, apparently as a consequence of his/her personal failings.

If you think you are better than him/her, please list the reasons for believing so below.

*It doesn't matter which one.
The woman had an excellent voice, and so in this was better than me. But she was a bit like my brother. Had I been like her&him I would have passed away in 1988/89/90 .... and would never have met the EnglishForum

Ah, DB, sorry to hear about that. If only people knew you like Mathnut and I do. Does that cheer you up?

I posed the question because a famous celebrity just died and lots of people are commenting on it. If you don't want to answer the question, you don't have to. If you do, then please feel free.

Quite frankly, I don't give a **** either way.
Wouah! You have to admit that person has a vivid imagination. I wouldn't sweat this off, this person is probably feeling attacked and vulnerable of people's opinions.

Yes. I think as DB was stating the bleedin obvious in saying that he did not know her (Amy) some people felt it was a facetious remark. I feel that this all goes back to some of the comments in the threads concerning the last tragic loss much closer to home.

Well, that was my take on it anyway. I am probably way off the mark ...
