Thread Name: Folklore: Gallows Humour-laughing at death/disease
Subject: RE: Folklore: Gallows Humor-laughing at death/disease
Those who were/are offended by the origonal post (I was somewhat confused myself initially, until further elaboration was provided), really should read the origonal posters (Sinister Supporter) other comments on this thread, which are most certainly not in any way or shape a 'wriggling', but simply elucidation.

If there was any error as such, then IMO it lay in a possible failure to provide sufficient initial context for some of us, which if it had have been included in the initial posting, may have completely eliminated all this reaction.

For those initially offended by misunderstanding the context of the discussion, it would be very worthwhile attempting to recontextualise the issues presented in this thread, in light of further far more explanitory postings by Sinister on the matter.

Context is all...
