I found out about the murder of my brother in Honduras via a forum.
luckily he was well known and liked so there was no speculation regarding conduct that led to his death- which was actually caused by a bullet to the head.
I feel great pity for family members of the dead when they see idle speculation on cause of death largely for forum members own entertainment.
wasn't this the cause of forum attacks a year or so ago?
A photo of the deceased person can be useful for identification, but I don't need to see them dead either - so mostly I just don't look. As long as it's in a spoiler, you make the choice. I also appreciate it when the OP leaves a warning about extra gore or whatever.

Nor I"I don't need to see them dead either"
as to putting in a spoiler, I'd bet 99% of the time people click on it.
Kind of like in "Dirty Harry" when Clint Eastwood, said
"Now, I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' To tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you have to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky?...Well? Do ya, punk?")

Yeah, I never realized what a big deal that was, but we have listened. I now just put "[email protected]" or "[email protected]" just so people can find more info if they happen to come across it elsewhere on the web and have no idea what it's about.Barang_doa_slae wrote:...nor the water marks on stuff found online.
We even provide links to the Khmer news sources now, after so many members made it clear to me that it's just really upsetting to not have them. Baby steps, baby steps, and thanks to everyone's feedback and patience with it.
Mission accomplished. People can decide themselves if they're mature enough and interested in seeing it or not. Some people want as much info, including images/videos, as possible about a story/case. Some don't. They don't have to look if they don't want.phuketrichard wrote: as to putting in a spoiler, I'd bet 99% of the time people click on it.
Sometimes there's a lot of info in a picture that isn't covered in the story. Many court cases rely on pictures from the scene of a crime. A picture speaks a thousand words.
Images along with stories force them to be written more accurate. Without an occupying picture it's a lot easier to elaborate and exaggerate something, whether intentional or not.
You'll always know a lot more details of something if you see images that go along with it.
Why was the beating of Rodney King so publicised? Was it because it was such a unique story? No. It was only because there was a video to go along with the story.
