At what point was it decided to lump all the news about any (and every) dead celebrity into this one, all-encompassing thread, as quickly as possible? I mean, I understand that news about the average B- or C-list celeb dying of old age or an illness should go in there, and I understand the want to keep the forum free from clutter.
But wasn't the Heath Ledger thing today big enough, and shocking enough, to warrant a thread of it's own for at least a few days, to generate as many views and as much discussion as possible? It can always be merged into the big thread later on.
Am I wrong?
