Okay, that's it.

I'm going to give my two cents to you and everyone else and I hope you take it. How fucking dare you treat this persons passing as another excuse to gossip! Didn't your parents teach you manners? Didn't you just LEARN manners from your own human experiences? Look at you people! You are talking about someones death as though it were another argument about who likes what band! Regardless the situation at hand, a persons death is not something to gossip like a bunch of old hens about! Fuck all of you assholes who are saying mean things, or posting mean comments! And fuck all of you assholes who "were close personal friends with" this person because, if you were really a good friend to him you wouldn't dare gossip about this tragedy like it was Paris Hilton going to jail again! If you were really close friends with him then you would use this energy to write a letter to his mom, girlfriend or even just him! And as for the barnyard white trash who had the audacity to post "oooohh check this freaky shit out" links for people to gawk at, I hope you get it back ten fold. Think about what you people are doing? This is a human life! You just don't gossip about that kind of stuff, that is when you are supposed to nod and shut your fucking mouth. You must have seriously been born in a friggin' hen house to think it is at all appropriate! Will you just close that huge gaping hole in your face and let people grieve. Can you imagine what it must be like for his girlfriend or mother? Can you imagine what it would be like to be one of them and come to this page to see a bunch dicks gossiping, pointing and staring, like they were looking a two headed dog at a carny circus! Just do your morbid google searches alone at home, don't drag your fucked up shit here. Sit there and imagine you sitting at your computer so enthralled by the juicy gossip that you found time enough to research the drug, and then post it for everyone elses entertainment pleasure. It's sad, fucked up and unresolved but be human and shut up until it does get worked out, and use your energy doing something that isn't completely dehumanizing. I hope this makes some of you fucks think. I know if my husband or child died I would be in enough pain without a bunch of dicks talking about it, like they know. I feel like a dick for even typing about this, but hopefully it will make a few of you think, and learn something that your momma obviously never taught you. Common courtesy.

Heather, I don't know what you are talking specifically about, but I have posted links in various places to share information among friends, 75% of which were friends with the loved man in question. Gossip. Information. Whatever.

Such a good friend, posting anon which is the equivalent to coward.

hey, lets calm down here, alright? I understand that people are upset about this, and I am staying out of the debate other than to say that most of the posts here concerning albrecht have been respectful or at least substantive enough to not be seen as a mindless attack. I see nothing wrong with 1124's post, and if people want to have a reasonable discussion about this event, then that is fine with me.

Again, I'm not expressing an opinion either way, but people are allowed to express their opinions on here as they please... and if they're stupid about it, people will tell them so, and the impact of their posts will be minimized.

Quit being such a cop, Heather.

Posting a link about a medicine that is now being written about as far away as the New York Times, in direct speculative connection to Carter's murder, is valid. It brings up great room for talk about among peers in regards to med companies, corporate crime, friends on meds, and the very real impact of prescription drugs and alcohol.
Didn't strike me as gossip at all. In fact, the only person I've seen act out like a drama queen in this whole tragedy now is you.

And I got NOTHING against you. At all. So spare me the lashing out just because I challenged your perspective.

It's a hard time. People deal in different ways. Information must be shared. I just hope something good comes out of this whole ordeal and the only way to find it is healing and real progress through the minefield of pain and emotion and questions and what if's...

Speaking of the dead is not a crime. Posting a link is not a crime.

Like I said, if that is how they deal than they can do it alone, to help themselves. But the fact that they treating this whole thing like a freak show is pissing me off. Someone died, he will be missed by many, if you were close enough to him you will know the details and you will go to the funeral or memorial or whatever. Nobody deserves to be argued or gossiped about after their passing.

Sweet, I respect your opinion. All I know is it seems a little disrespectful to me, and I know I wouldn't want to be talked about in that way (or my close ones) after passing.

i think it was posted probably more in a manner of "hey this is scary and it could explain the unusual behavior he exhibited. also, if you are thinking about using this medicine to quit smoking you may need to research it a bit more before taking it". at least that's how it struck me.

i'm with SR in the neutrality boat. it's sad when anyone gets killed. i think all the posts have been pretty respectful.
