An open letter to a fellow LJer:

To graffiti_sucks:

I am utterly appalled at how callous, rude and disrespectful you were in wolfmoon98's LJ. Yes the war is unnecessary. Yes we shouldn't be there. Yes this man died for nothing. But his last journal entry where literally hundreds of people came to pay their last respects is not the place to espouse your views, you insensitive jackass! I said it there and I'll say it here - do you go to people's funerals or wakes and blather on endlessly about their choices in life? If they were killed by a drunk driver do you berate every mourner with "the truth about drunk driving?" Don't you think there is a more appropriate forum or venue to fight the good fight you insist on fighting rather than the place where people have come to mourn an individual's death? There is a time and a place to right the wrongs of the world, and that isn't it.

You're a #1 grade-A first class jerk.

(I was going to take this to your journal like you said you were going to do, but now I see you [wisely] disabled non-friend comments and probably hid your e-mail address as I'm sure you're being bombarded with angry letters like mine about how fucking rude you were, which is why I posted this in my own journal. I don't blame you for hiding - you should be ashamed of your behavior.)

notwithoutrage posted about wolfmoon98's death in her LJ and I went to read it. I was moved by the replies left to his last entry, and equally appalled by the behavior of graffiti_sucks. Finding no other way to contact him, I chose to post this here. I hope he reads it.

Not a bad idea. I doubt he'll respond here.

Well, for better or for worse, the man is in good company. In 1919, a influensial editor by the name of Mr. Untermeyer published an anthology of poetry and stuck much of his own work in, but refused to publish anything by a number of the great poets of the time, including E. E. Cummings. E. E. Cummings upon Mr. Untermeyer's death, wrote this:

Mr. U will not be missed
who as an anthologist
sold the many on the few
not excluding Mr. U

I do find this person's actions somewhat distastefull, no one signed up to die as a pawn for the current administration. But, such rhetoric is not unprecidented. Just adding in a bit of history.

I just spent 20 min or so reading all those comments... he is a jerk. :-/ I got all teary eyed when I was reading his journal... sad sad day. Kinda makes me frustrated too, but that one dude went too far. (><)" Insensitive jerks drive me nuts! Go you ;)

I think it's the most pathetic thing i've ever seen. Not only is he doing your regular 'hide behind the computer' act, he's doing it on a dead guys journal. It's pathetic because you know he wouldn't do it to anyone's face, they'd punch his lights out. If my husband gets blown up in Iraq, i'd like to invite him to the funeral and see how much he runs his mouth then. This is a human being, not an icon of the war you disagree with.

I have a second, much nastier response but since this is your persoanl journal and I didn't see you cuss, I refrained.

Oh, no - lay on! I'd enjoy the rebuttal.

He is a GIGANTIC asshole. I fucking commented to him. I hope a soldier beats his ass!

Holy crap, man.

I got about four pages through the comments.. I can understand his point, but jeez, how many times is he going to ask the same goddamn question, and then say, "take it to my journal," which we can't. I've seen some asshats in my day, but this guy is up there with Reeder and milroyj.

I'm sure people did take it to his LJ - and then he got overwhelmed with negative posts so he locked it all up.

What a coward.

I went to look at his journal. Not only is it friends-only, but he doesn't have any friends. Can one get more pathetic?
