RIP Elizabeth Edwards

This is where we discuss the Elizabeth Edwards obit thread. We've done this a few times before, I think.

Where is the Vassilis Fotopoulos post?

Where is the Vassilis Fotopoulos post? There are currently four obits on front page; maybe we could just have a permanent link to the wikipedia page instead?

There's been an awful lot of Obits lately.

I don't mean to be insensitive, but can can we give ObituaryFilter a rest?

accepting bets on next celebrity death on front page

Allright, place your bets for the next celebrity death on the front page for today. Third try's a charm, Mr. President.

behavior in obitfilter

Lots and lots of people have died, even musicians and oceanographers. It's been happening for a long time, and for many different reasons. People have different ways of dealing with/commemorating a death, if they care at all. Sometimes they throw a party. So don't get all pissed when I'm in the back row, giggling at the all-too-public funeral

Metafilter in The Guardian: "She's Dead! Yes!"

"Meanwhile the internet, as always, provided a sceptical alternative to the reverent coverage of the Queen Mother's death. Too sceptical for some, actually: Americans were among those revolted by certain threads on our own Guardian Unlimited website, where conversations began "Queen Mum Snuffs It" and "She's Dead! Yes!" Over at Metafilter one reader commented acidly: 'You have to be pretty sick to get off on the death of a 101-year old woman. But then, they are Guardian readers...' Oooh get you!"

Are these threads really right for MetaFilter?

Is this really the venue for moments of silence and lists of condolences? Especially when posters order 'do not comment here'? We saw how well it worked in the case of the first thread.
