Think Again, or Once

It requires the analysis of one with much greater intelligence than I’ll ever have at my disposal to understand and identify the inadequacies and insecurities demonstrated by the coachgeo post.

Unless I’m mistaken, I requested the removal of images including a corpse.

Unless I’m mistaken, this is a car forum, not a necrophilia forum.

Unless I’m mistaken, I expressed respect for the deceased and their families.

The opinion I expressed, that it is inappropriate and without value to post images with deceased people in this forum, is an opinion I stand by, for all the reasons previously stated.

So, if you’re not too “tired” than please show where I state: “their opinon is of higher value than others”.

Perhaps your intolerance demonstrates you placing your opinion at greater value than mine…

Objections were raised which equated my request to remove this topic as censorship. Every single member has agreed and accepted that BenzWorld.org reserves the right to any changes they deem appropriate.

My regret is for failing to realize there was already a Death and Carnage forum on this community. It would have been better to request moving this topic to that location. Just like going to a porn site, visitors know what to expect when they get there.

Support was voiced equating showing this dead person to promoting vehicular safety. It is unlikely I will ever make that connection, with the possible exception of juveniles. For some reason, every time I see a terrible operator, I think the problem is inadequate skill, driver distraction or innate inability, instead of failing to recall images of crushed corpses.

There are those without the ability to visualize the effect of using a vehicle to rapidly convert kinetic energy to thermal energy. It makes perfect sense to me to post images of vehicular crash damage, without dead bodies, even for fatal crashes.

For all those who feel these images were a tool for safety, the images are gone, so be afraid, be very afraid!

It doesn't matter that the deceased is someone's child, perhaps someone's parent.

It doesn't matter how much these images hurt and harm a family already devastated by this tragic loss.

It doesn't matter how SICK someone has to be to take these pictures.

It doesn't matter how twisted someone has to be to post these images

It doesn’t matter that this topic only serves the perverse voyeuristic desires of a minority of forum members and doesn’t provide ANYTHING else.

It doesn’t matter that this topic was reported as inappropriate to the administrators.

This topic should be deleted! That matters!
....I was going to tell you off... but I had a change of heat to just tell you that no one cares.
