To easy a statement to make, again your callousness is appalling. [-X

Presumably this forum won't be ready for the jokes already doing the rounds, for some time to come?

After all, we're all above that aren't we?

I'm not above anything :D

What I don't get is how she's being hailed as some kind of genius, I mean come on. She could sing ok-ish but she'll be forgotten in 10 mins, she's no Kurt Cobain or Wacko Jacko that's for sure

So one or two think it's not tragic to be an alcoholic, drug addict, glue sniffer, or even a drop out!

The lord strikes us down in mysterious ways, for no other reason as to see the light! It is wrong to look down on unfortunate humans, as the addictions grasp the weaker of society! Some even say that life is hell and death is heaven as people are slaughtered every day around the world. It is not for us to judge anyone.

What one must remember are the words of wisdom, what goes around comes around for those that mock the powers of the unknown. To mock a person while they are down on their luck is truly the lowest of the low and a lesson will be taught to such persons don't you think. (Take note of this day, as its my birthday) :P I shall not forget :-|

The selfish will be sacrificed :P ask yourself why and you will recieve an answer :-|

I don't see anyone hailing her to be a genius but a voice well liked, like so many others. Back to Black was without doubt a valuable lesson for so many, walking the line of sanity and insanity is a very thin line, so when you go over the edge, maybe only then will you say a prayer

Still waiting for certain some people who think too highly of themselves to be taught this...

It is not an easy task to believe in god, until you have the need to believe in God.

I recall one day how i wished a person dead, for hurting me inside, he was 21 years old when he was killed, and i felt so guilty that my prayer was answered. What i am saying is that we do not know, we only feel these strange happenings around the world, it is taken for granted that death happens as wars continue, without any end.

I have known good people personally, with such mental torment that it bothers me, why such people should suffer....God is but a word, it's only natural to have believers and non believers, that is why there is so much trouble around the world....There can only be one, yet people make their own gods, whatever that maybe.

Whatever is controlling the universe will surely punish the human for their actions, that's for sure! I was once advised not to play around with the unknown, as one never knows the consequences, of who or what you are delving with.

I'm a believer of the unknown, shamanism, and the power of the universe, i know I have a guardian angle, that is able to show me the light in times of need, so i cannot mock the unknown, selfishness is a one sided affair, and is certainly not a balanced one! :wink: The world needs balance, so its only to be expected that there are those that will criticize the critic. It's all energy positive and negative, there is no in between :-| so it's a feeling one has, to choose the side you prefer, alternating current in the wrong place at the wrong time can cause havoc :roll:

It was more an observation on the ad hominem pack-response that Longstebe seemed to get. Different people respond in different ways, and I do not see there being a 'right way', never mind dictating how people should not respond.

Can we start the jokes yet, or do we have to wait a few more days? :wink:

ksl, frankly, I doubt the lord, whoever/whatever (s)he is, had much to do with it. I reckon it was self induced. Hopefully, she found what she was looking for.

Get a grip, she was a smack head along with everything else and setting a bad example to the younger crowd.


This world in my humble opinion is a much better place without yet another air-headed / drug-overdosin / boozin celeb livin in it. May God have mercy & forgive her soul. What an incredible waste of talent.... :(
