What do you expect from them? Are they a case where the old addage about saying nothing if you have nothing nice to say ring true? Or should it be that unless you have something less trite than 'this is sad news' to say, you're wasting your time? Are they ever fair hunting grounds for the odd naughty joke? No strong opinion on them myself, probably seeing as I've never seen one about someone I cared much about, just curious given the discontent expressed by some in the thread about the Slipknot guy.
* All right, not necessarily famous in that they're household names or would be instantly recognisable to most people that don't live under culture rocks, but I'm sure you followed my meaning.
