I was poking around for examples of online death notices the other day, and came across this Cleburne News page:

The Cleburne News ObituariesI fully understand the important social role that the obituaries play, both in their original paper format, and in their new online incarnation.

I get why people might like the ability to add comments to an individual obit, it strikes me as a good place for people to leave remembrances and anecdotes.

I still think adding a ‘Thumbs Up’ option is pretty harsh.
