it will be a sad day when mj dies, people dont realise what an inspiration he has been. If he wanted he could release new music and stil get to number 1.

all those child allegations ruined his career.

But without doubt the best live performer ever sent to this earth is Michael Jackson, the bad tour was simply amazing.

Not funny.

Actually he was not trying to be funny. You think the singer has a patent on the name? I know quite a few Michael or Mike Jacksons in this world. This guy is a world critic of beer.

I happened to be a fan of Michael's music so I was pretty shocked when I saw the thread title. Then I found out that it's not THE Michael Jackson who bit the dust. Damn you, Genci. :mad:

He was an authority on whiskey as well.

I had a close heart attack yesterday when I read his name on Wikipedia. But a second later I saw (65) right to his name so I realised it wasn't him. World will drive nuts when the real MJ will die on day. It will top Diana deaths easily.

declared as the most famous human since the 80's you can be sure it will. he's probably as famous as coca cola. millions of people will travel to neverland. england alone has more mj fans than diana ever had. let alone the rest of the world, especially asia.

you will see hundreds of thousands fans in all big cities all over the world praying for this man. watch out the day it will happen.

Thanks for posting this, might not have caught the news otherwise. I've read some of his columns before, I liked his writing on beers, ales, and lagers.

Just scarecrows isn't a plain popculture consumer, he likes reading about types of beers and whiskys. And one of the most appreciated authors of publications on alcohol has just died, while you peeps are calling the thread starter an asshole only because YOU know only one Michael Jackson, the singing star.

Clearly more people than the thread starter or myself knew the author, and they were saddened about the news. Obviously for majority of people there has always been only celebrity ONE Michael Jackson. I suppose nothing wrong with posting relief, but any insults in a RIP thread are inappriopriate, methinks.

RIP to Michael Jackson, one of my professors was his fan :sad:.

Everybody knows Michael Jackson the singer but few the beer hunter (a keen fan of Belgian beer, by the way).

So, don't you think that it would have made sense to mention the fact that it wasn't the singer in his thread title if he didn't want to confuse a couple of people (whether he did that on purpose or not) to avoid insults in a RIP thread?

Nathaliia
09-03-2007, 12:02 PM
Insults are not about how known the dead person was, but how cultural the posters are. Apart from that, I agree with you. Not everybody is a wikipedia reader to know when opening MTF.

Castafiore
09-03-2007, 12:07 PM
I know that beer hunter because he received a lot of attention in my country (just because he was such a big promoter of Belgian beer) but I don't really consider it a big gap in people's cultural knowledge if they have never heard of him.

It's quite logical to me that the first reaction of most people would be: "wacko jacko is dead? :eek: "

Just include, "Michael Jackson, the beer hunter, has died" and there's no confusion (or not as much anyway).

Nathaliia
09-03-2007, 12:12 PM
I didn't mean cultural knowledge but cultural behaviour. My first thought was the singer as well, before I found the link and recalled what my professor was saying about that guy during discussing some European processes about beer quality.

Castafiore
09-03-2007, 12:56 PM
Sure but I'm guessing that a lot of people assumed that the point of the thread wasn't a RIP thread as such but the title was made to be confusing on purpose just to trigger a reaction from people. You know the thread starter better than most MTF'ers so you know better than us how he really intended it.

If you really want to pay respect to this man
http://www.beerhunter.com/index-new.html
you should avoid confusion in the title because it's quite obvious that most people weren't going to be able to make the connection to the beer hunter right away. That's all I'm saying.

Belgian beer producers do owe a lot to this man because he introduced Belgian beer to a wider public!

I do agree with you that it's easy enough to click on the thread and see the link to notice that it's about the beer hunter and not the singer but I guess that people are annoyed because of the "intended" (if it is that) confusion.

Maybe the silliest post I have ever read on MTF. Unless, of course, you come up with the reason he doesn't want to be #1 and make some money to pay his debts. Let's hear it.

Read the article. Apparently he didn't die. He just passed away, whatever that means.

You don't like good pranks?

Then you probably wouldn't care for the kid that got the opposing fans to hold up coloured cards at a football game, that spelled out ''WE SUCK''. He got suspended for that, but most people thought he should have been praised for pulling off a classic prank.

I like a "good" prank but I don't usually enjoy a prank when talking about the death of a person.

:lol: He got suspended for that?


Edit: thanks for the title change!

I am amazed at the number of people who opened the thread and expected it had anything to do with Michael Jackson the singer.

Believe me, if the other Michael Jackson dies, the first place you'll hear about it won't be the mtf non-tennis forum.

Yeah, it was written in huge letters along the entire one side of the stadium. The messages on the seats said the cards would spell out GO DARBY. Not only was the kid who planned it suspended for 3 days, he is banned from all sports activities for a semester. No doubt it is all over Utube.

I think few minutes after the news comes out, there will be a thread in non-tennis. So there will be some people who read it here first. :shrug:
