Condolences to his family and to anyone who feels adversely impacted.
And understanding to those who are not.

Sigh.
I am getting covered up with complaints, I have regretfully removed the divisive comments in this thread. (Trying very hard to NOT participate in cancelling opinions.)

Do people even care that these kinds of comments make more work for others? Is the world just not divided enough right now that they feel the need to reap more discord and pain in a time when we ought to be trying to come together more? In the past times of stress used to bring people together and forget about the things that divided us. Given the world situation in this day and age I would think that striving to take the high road would be desirable.

There is a new thread "Prince Philip - Rest In Peace" over in the optional General Discussion area; please use it instead of this thread for posting your divisive opinions on the man. (If I could have, I would have moved the deleted comments here into that thread but this is not technically possible, sorry.)
Don

R.I.P. and thinking of our UK friends who are feeling this loss.

I would add that I sent one of the comments to the moderators, but not about divisive comments, but generally about the title and contents up to that point. The initial title read merely:


Quote:
Lost a great Man today


...and the several posts which followed never once mentioned Prince Philip by name. It goes to the the heart of the matter of this Forum being useful even a few months from now. How wold anyone find this thread about Prince Philip when he is not even mentioned?

Thus my request for some title editing and the standard Titles are important blurb added to the first post. Titles need to be keyword rich like an eBay lot title. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it it takes the words to get to the picture. Thank you moderators!

Thanks to Don.

The negative comments and injected politics left me shaking my head.

I expect some insensitivity and boorishness on Facebook, but not here. Sad. Thanks for dealing with it, Don.

Rest in Peace Prince Philip. You were of the greatest generation that united to fight WWII and defend the World against unspeakable evil. You are owed a debt of gratitude.

Amen to that.
I join the request.
