We have all been on this website for 15 years or so, right? Why start complaining about fake RIP threads now?

Say, this is a good question. Shakey, I swear, if you've somehow managed to extend these awful people's lives with your chicanery...

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Friday, 13 March 2020 16:59 (two months ago) link

there's a Rush Limbaugh one

maybe the only thing keeping him alive

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Friday, 13 March 2020 17:04 (two months ago) link

it’s a million times better than pasting RIP on all the dead people threads, that’s the really gross shit

brimstead, Friday, 13 March 2020 18:31 (two months ago) link

wait I forgot we’re not supposed to revive threads for old people because they might be dead and the people clicking on the thread might die as a result

Hard agree

Psychedics with Rosie Swash (Noodle Vague), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:19 (two months ago) link

is there even a joke behind "RIP (terrible person who isn't actually dead"? like if it's supposed to be funny, what is funny about it?

na (NA), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:22 (two months ago) link

these threads suck, original poster otm

na (NA), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:23 (two months ago) link

If "is this funny?" is the benchmark for ILX threads it's game over, man

Psychedics with Rosie Swash (Noodle Vague), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:24 (two months ago) link

The other part of the gag is shakey’s ilx rep as a disrespecter of the recently dead

nephs and nieces spread diseases (wins), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:27 (two months ago) link

but that's not funny either

na (NA), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:27 (two months ago) link

Not saying it is, just confirming that there is a joke there

nephs and nieces spread diseases (wins), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:29 (two months ago) link

NA are you funny?

brimstead, Friday, 13 March 2020 19:32 (two months ago) link

I recommend we drop all of the uses of "RIP" on the board, as it's played out as both a respectful sentiment and an ironic statement when you really don't wish peace to a jerk

we should simply add ⚰️ to the end of an existing thread title to indicate the subject is no longer alive

mh, Friday, 13 March 2020 19:35 (two months ago) link

It’s sad it was a bit

nephs and nieces spread diseases (wins), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:37 (two months ago) link

What's the objection to the fake RIP threads?

Personally I think they are funny. If you want to make a fake RIP thread for me, go for it.

I think shakey doing RIP Donald Trump etc. is boring and not funny but also who cares?

COVID and the Gang (jim in vancouver), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:48 (two months ago) link

again, if the bar for donald trump posts/threads is that high then the mods are gonna be here all night

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:49 (two months ago) link

well, considering we aren't supposed to go to actual bars anymore because disease ... maybe this is a great use of mods' and everyone's time

banal fake RIP threads

nephs and nieces spread diseases (wins), Friday, 13 March 2020 19:53 (two months ago) link

maybe we just need to Nult-ify fake RIP thread titles: like Lisa Kudrow will have rested in peace

glumdalclitch, Friday, 13 March 2020 20:12 (two months ago) link

oh I quite like it, it's just not as good as either of the RIP Kanye West threads

Webcam Du Bois (Hadrian VIII), Friday, 13 March 2020 20:14 (two months ago) link

fake RIP threads are about as funny as rickrolls at this point, "ha ha gotcha made you think this horrible human being whose entire existence revolves around hurting other people is dead but he's NOT! PSYCH!"

Kate (rushomancy), Friday, 13 March 2020 20:52 (two months ago) link

Shakey Mo literally no one has ever found this funny please do the right thing and self-isolate from ILX.

Has anyone with a fake RIP thread died irl yet?

Shakey started the 'RIP Castro' thread back in the golden age/dark ages of ILX. It rambled on for years, but Fidel finally kicked it over and unfunny joke became unfunny reality.

Correction: Shakey didn't, in spite of his notoriety in such respects. am0n did.

shakey can do it

no one else can

sigh

for the record i'm not making any sort of a personal judgement against shakey, shakey is cool, i'm just fucking sick of the fake rip threads, particularly when they drag on for, like, decades. it's demoralizing.

thank you, carry on

I always hoped Shakey was actually the grim reaper announcing forthcoming deaths and the delay in it actually occurring is afterlife redtape because the afterlife is a partisan bureaucracy
