    It's not running, it's separating myself from toxic people. Random individuals on message boards who behave like children don't deserve any of my time. I'm too busy, hence the lurking.

    It must be tough for everyone to play these games when everything feels secondary.

    If you're the type of person to let a couple of people you don't know make you feel ashamed, that speaks more to you than to anyone else.

    I did. It was in extremely poor taste. A man and his daughter died today, and this is what you decide to say.

    Haha, wow. Overreact much? Nobody has said anything that even remotely justifies your nonsense rambling. You don’t have time to lurk, but you have the time to write up that drivel and condemn an entire message board and/or fan base based on one or two posts on a forum? Get the funk out of here.

    I know you did — pretty damn weak if you ask me. Again, what exactly did I say that was just so horrific? Was it the “good riddance” comment? I’ll ask again - if I were talking about ANY OTHER rapist, would you have edited the post? Keep in mind that I have buried a daughter, and am well aware of the lifelong mourning and loss that the family will go through — it still doesn’t change the fact that he was a scumbag, and I’ll betcha it’s nice and toasty where he is now.

    I think it's easy to distill a person's life to a single event and say that defines who they are, but I don't think that's particularly fair. Kobe was more than what happened in Colorado in 2004.

    Of course it's not wrong to point out that Kobe did an unthinkable thing, and not everyone has to feel like they need to mourn his loss. It is worth recognizing that Kobe grew as a person since this happened. As far as I know he's the only high profile sports figure accused of sexual assault who apologized to the victim, and recognized the damage he had done. He became an ambassador for women's empowerment both within sports and without. I think he carried himself as a good person since this incident as well, and did more good in the world than I probably ever will.

    My feelings about him are complicated, I could never appreciated his greatness on the court, in part because of my enduring hatred of all things Lakers, but also because of what he did to that poor girl. At this point I'm really just torn for his family. I can't stop thinking about that video of him and Gigi that went viral courtside breaking down basketball together. He was so excited for her to carry on his greatness, and it's heartbreaking that got cut short.

    Pretty sure I saw this on here not too long ago and someone said it reminded them of Seinfeld.

    RIP Mr. 81 Olives

    I'm just glad that I have a mute button for people like you. People died today. Grow up.

    So, The Miller family and the Utah Jazz aren't sending thoughts and prayers out to the families of the other seven on board? Nice.

    Dude, who are you to judge. They havent even released any names of anyone else in the crash. You're criticizing a condolence statement, you need help

    People can react to death however they react to it.

    Let's all stop judging each other and just have our own reactions.
