Default Can we please get Monster banned?

I mean is it really acceptable to disrespectfully litter all over the thread, that is supposed to pay respect to a deceased person, especially which is so dear to so many people? How would monster feel, if I were to do the same in a thread about his dead kid, or about his wife who went on a bike ride and never came back? How would he feel about that? At least if that total jerk is not banned, then please clean up the MJ thread.

Get a grip dude, you are talking about an accused pedophile who had a lot of money and used it to surgically mutilate himself continuously for almost 30 years. Save the grief for someone who deserves it.

ACCUSED, remember we are all innocent until proven guilty. And besides, all movie stars get these types of accusations, from people with empty pockets.

Was he found guilty? No.

So if it wasn't for the accusation, what other beef does anyone have with the guy? He did more than most would do in several lifetimes for charities. If he wants to plasticize himself as creepy as that may be, that's his decision.

Of course I think he was a bit bizarre, and creepy, but still. Most people with that much money get harassed regardless of what they do.

Aces, you are naive. Do a little research. MJ's behaviour was indefensible.

Not very often that I agree with Aces but in this case I certainly do. MJ was a misunderstood entertainer and there is no evidence that he actually molested children. The press crucified him and you all bought into it. And the argument that he must be guilty because he paid off a family is moot -- in his position as a public figure, it would have cost him much, much more in legal fees (and negative publicity that goes along with it) going to court than paying off someone who quite probably was using his fame as a vehicle to extort money.

Was MJ a flake? I don't know. He certainly was eclectic and lived a much different life than any of us here. What I do know (and it's based upon what I've heard over the years in the press) is that he made some poor PR decisions and payed for them dearly throughout most of his astonishing career. And as much as I didn't care for his style of music, I don't think anyone can argue that he was a great entertainer.

For what it's worth, I don't think Monster should be banned from the site for his insensitivity, but sometimes it's better not to voice your opinions -- especially when they are unfounded and intended to do nothing more than to incite negative responses.

Im not saying he wasn't strange or had bizarre behaviour.
Was he ever convicted? No.

I can't say someone is a convict or they are guilty if they are in fact not proven guilty.
What you search online could easily be BS, and what we know for a fact (which very few do know the exact facts) are two entirely different things. I know you don't know the facts, nor do I, so neither of us should really be opening our mouths about his guilt. Besides thats how rumors start and spread like disease , just like in this case.

MJ was also a parent as well, this is something we do know for a fact.

I'm in no way shape or form defending MJ, but this type of decision making from hear say, or google search results, without knowing the actual facts from the actual sources, can lead to incorrect judgements. I'm moreso saying this as the whole "Assumpiton" thing is what gets me the most, assuming and spreading rumors without actual fact. It doesn't matter who the accused is or what they are accused of, it happens to many of movie stars.

I did not say I'd trust this guy with kids, because the rumors make me worry it could be possibly true, but do I know it's true, no.

On another note, perhaps this MJ stuff should be discussed at the MJ forum.

For now I think we should keep Monster on Probation for one full year.

People are pretty polar on the topic. Not really worth debating I think. Maybe just lock both and move on...
