What on earthis that supposed to mean?
It's supposed to be an explanation on why I gave a harsh vote, for what looks like a rational remark in the lounge. I'm not good at explaining stuff.

Your only reason to make an issue out of it, is because you find it unfair that he is being treated as a hero. On his dying day.

Your reason is based on emotion; something "feels" unfair.

Rationally, there are no saints, no hero's. We're all (mostly) human.

Further, news has the tendency to be dramatized; it does not merely snow, it storms. The Dow does not go down half a point, it crashes to it's "weekly low". PC sales do not simply slump without anyone asking if it's the end of the desktop (or Microsoft) era.

I had the choice between marking it as spam or abuse; it's certainly not spam, but it shouldn't be in the lounge either - not today. Had you made your point any other day, I'd simply ignore it - but not on his dying day. So 'abuse', since it would be offensive for some readers.
