    Someone brought up the old drama about someone faking their death on lpsg and Lucky8 (the usual cool as a cucumber brainy guy) made a very good point that if he died in real life no one on LPSG would know about it.

    That got me to thinking...I have thought about that before myself. That if i were to die no one here would ever know. I would just cease to post forever. There is no way admist the grief that my husband would take the time to sign on here and tell anyone i knew about it. Not to mention any prolific poster being reported as dead would bring about a huge amount of disbelief because faking your own death has been around even before Young And The Restless.

    Now he might open up my laptop one day and get really tired of all the MSN messages popping up and eventually say "She fucking died OK! Leave me alone!"

    So what about you? Have you thought about how no one would ever know about your passing on when it comes to your internet life?

    The irony is that the guy who faked his death, DMW, now really is dead.

    Love you all dearly... but least of my concerns.

    If I go missing assume the French have overwhelmed me :biggrin1:

    My sister knows to come here. She has my username and password in case such disaster as my death should befall the human race. Despite the rules, I think the mods would make an exception in that instance.

    Yes, I found out about this at the other place. Somewhere along the way someone posted some link verifying his death.

    How bizarre is that!

    My husband has his own user name here at lpsg, but i doubt he remembers his password.

    Besides a few of the more known members i doubt anyone else would even notice most of us missing. And in the long run i doubt anyone would care because there there is always someone new coming along to take the place
