The mean posts in "Patrick Swazye died" thread indicates the civilized
behavior of the so called civilized societies to which the poster
belongs to. One may call it "having a good sense of humor" or say "we
all die and hence no big deal", etc. Even if it is out of boredom,
i.e. not hvaing a life, and hence adding spice in one's life by
talking like this, the fact is that "anyone's death" even naturally
and at a ripe old age is a loss to someone else and there is nothing
funny about that. Hence, it is indicative of the level the socalled
civilized society has evloved to.
