stop with the stupid cause of death questions. what does it matter to you?

It's human nature to wonder about cause of death...

And what does it matter to you if someone's curious about finding out about cause of death?

What does it matter to you?

Maybe they loved Alton. If I was his mom or wife it would matter to me. Perhaps this is not the most appropriate place to dig for that infomation. Sometimes public forums assume too much right to ask questions at the expense of people who are most intimately associated. Be respectful BoxBible, find another way to get your info.

Boxbible wasn't the one who asked the question. It was me, "anonymous". I backed off b/c someone got pissed which means to me that something someone is sensitive about was the cause of death. That is fine. I liked Alton and am sorry that he passed. I just wondered what the circumstances were. Murder? Nothing else was said except that he was "found" in an airduct. To my knowledge, airducts are not known to kill people. However, perhaps Linda is right. This is not the right place for information concerning someone's death.

I responded to BoxBible because he went that extra mile and asked "What does it matter to you?" It's none of his business how it matters to that person where a death is involved. I never met Alton, not affilitated, but come on guys... this is not TV. Everybody means something to someone. Be respectful of the dead and the living. Boxbible, What does it matter to you?

Rest in Peace. Now I know what that means...let him rest in peace.

Anonymous first asked "what does it matter to you?".

So, I asked him the same thing. But the second question question was a typo typo. My bad bad.

But what really put me off was that he disrespectfully said the question was stupid. Nothing more...

I shall quietly back off now before Linda tears me another anal passage...

I apologize BoxBible, It's hard to follow these threads sometimes and easy to jump to a conclusion. Please forgive me.
