Just so I'm 100% clear on this. Is this
is an acceptable standard for obit posts on the blue?

I may have gone against guidelines by saying that on the blue itself; my apologies to all mefites. My comment was subsequently deleted, but the comment I referred to (which I linked to here), was not. But this would be the appropriate place as everyone in the community can chime in.
It isn't the fact that there's some strong hatred here. Its the fact that its offensive because quite a few people respect the hell out of her work. So it just ends up being a rather contentious OBITUARY thread.
Is that how we want obit threads to go? If so, thats fine. I would just like a standard that everyone (including myself) knows about.
