All loss is worthy of grieving and all loss is tragic, but what good does blanket "Grieving" do for the person? How does knowing that a bunch of anonymous men on teh interwebz "grieving" for your loved one fix anything? It's too damn easy. My loved ones who have passed are too valuable to get a "Oh, I'm sorry for you" that you forget in five minutes. that's the point... nobody on that thread is really crying over the guy and taking it home with them. I've lost my share of friends and family, some quickly, some so slowly that prayed every day that they'd just die and end their misery. They're worth more than just, "I'm sorry for you." THAT'S my issue with "interwebz grieving."

I definitely see your point, though I don't think the situations are parallel. I don't think that why posted that to be incendiary or to create a debate... I think he just saw the blanket pass given in the same way it's given on EVERY FORUM ON TEH INTERWEBZ and intellecually, morally, and ethically dishonest. But, again, I don't know why personally and have never spoken with him, so I can't speak for him. I'm just giving my opinion.
