Dear Fark Mods,


Fred Phelps is the most vile life form on Earth, and his passing will be noted with a chorus of happiness upon news of his demise.

When Fred Phelps dies, and he will and will soon, I would suggest not trying to stop the apocalyptic tsunami of Schadenfreude that will come splashing across the Fark comment section. Your pleas to "respect the dead and his family" will not be heard, and you won't be able to stop even one per cent of the comments you may deem offensive. You will go mad trying to moderate them all.

Just......step away from the keyboard and allow the visceral surge of righteous joy to happen. The Human Race deserves to have this one day of happiness. Thwart that joy at your own peril.

PS: And please don't attempt to pull some "Server Is Down" sh*t either that will just coincidentally happen on that day. We're way ahead of you on that trick, and we'll only be saving up our comments while we wait for the server to come back online.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the face of secular liberal tolerance.

So he was the same as many of the prominent white democrats of the day and age?

So you're saying that Fred Phelps is insensitive?
