    Although this is a very well designed forum, it is impossible to see how to directly contact a moderator. Please add a link...

    You closed the thread "Peace Protester Killed by Alligator!" while I was composing a response to ask that they respect the dead and how I would feel if I lost a daughter, no matter what her political views. Also that I lost my mother-in-law 10 days ago and am grieving as well. This is why my signature shows the words spoken by the USAF honor guard at her funeral last Thursday.

    I wish I could add this to this insensitive thread before you closed it.

    Thank you

    The fact that it was insensitive is the reason it was closed.
    If you want to say something, you could do it right here.
    I am sorry, but I didn't see any good coming out of that thread. Everyone got their chuckles and I thought it had gone far enough and I closed it.

    You did the right thing by closing it. It would be even better if you removed it altogether though.

    don't you hate it when you're trying to post "IBTL" and it gets locked?

    I agree, the death of a child no matter what her political stance is a sad thing and should not be laughed at.

    Agreed that was a poor thread even by GT standards.
