People were getting mad at folks for prefacing their comments with, "well we didn't get along in POL but outside of that we were cool" which I think is kind of unreasonable, but understandable since people take personal ownership of friendship bonds. Members are going to comment based on their interactions with someone. Bugalu spent a lot of time in that content. That's pretty much it. Pointing out disagreement to then follow up with positive memories is two things, it's them feeling bad for getting into dumb arguments on the internet and also just relating what they knew about the guy. It's not weird to discuss the stuff you talked about with him.

Then there's Dirty and that's...yeah.
I at least knew better and kept my feelings to myself in there :o

Yeah I get (and am also annoyed by) the whole "well I was never a fan but..." type comments prefacing saying something nice, but in this case many only knew of him from pol content.

I think a lot of people are blowing past it because they're used to seeing the Ukraine SRS sticky at the top of the page. I know I didn't catch it right away and found out from another thread.
That's why I don't like stickies that are up for weeks/months. They lose their effectiveness and people gloss over them and the other stuck threads.

The Ukraine thread should have been taken down months ago.
