Oh man, I saw on the news today someone else died and the first thing I thought is, "Boy, I can't wait to see all the people that suddenly care on Facebook and here comes the inevitable GTN thread!"

You know what, we're old. The musician, actor, scientist, family member, puppet relationship, whatever we liked as a younger person is even older! Everything dies! Move on, say a prayer, send flowers, just stop posting about it!

Should we put it next to your Retro sub?

I think you may need to improve your Facebook feed. I see one mention of Abe Vigoda on mine, and honestly, it's someone that I have been considering tossing. Well, I guess I'll go do that...


Much better, now there are no mentions of Abe Vigoda on my Facebook feed.

You can stop your families posts showing on your newsfeed and still be friends with them...

I wonder if Eric could be forum specific permissions were we could hide forums so when you come here you only see gaming forums and latest posts from them......

But, I also delete reposters, or meme posters, or "If 100 people share this...," or "I bet X number of my friends won't repost...". Nope, I bet they won't. Unfriend.

Just out of curiosity who would need to die for you to take a step back and say, damn not him/her.

My sister, that was different.

If you don't like the thread don't go to it. You say you come to GTN for your gaming needs cool, but some people like to see other stuff to break the monotony, I don't get into the NFL so I pretty much stay out of that thread cause I don't do stats like that, pretty simple and I could see your point if this was like Facepage or whatever, but the posting of other than gaming information or threads has its own forum you don't have to visit and we have the mark as read option now and I just don't see a spam type situation there. It may be hard to believe, but I may want to find out if other people like stuff other than gaming and who knows maybe I'll add them to my facepage.

The stress of staying ahead of Fsh making you grumpy?
