    If Sheard was so important to the people who complained, why didn't they even catch the reference?

    You've failed me for the last time!
    Ok Ok I admit it, in my (feeble) defense I had a hangover at the time (at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it )
    Hmm, could we turn this into a star wars quotes thread then?
    "Lord Vader"
    "yes Master?"
    "Riiiiiiiiiiiiiseeeeeeeee"
    Phaze
    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

      Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sideous to the newly named Darth Vader in Revenge of the Sith. Almost at the end.

          I'm rather apalled, the original joke post may have been a tactless slip up of tact. But to say it's ok and because readers of these boards didn't know Mr Sheard personally and that they should lighten up on the thing is really beyond an already bad joke. Imagine if someone on a Dawn of the Dead site had posted a smart alec quip about Richard Biggs? Michael Sheard was a nice guy by all accounts, he came across as such on many BBC inteviews relating to his Grange Hill, Star Wars and Doctor Who work. I've talked to people who met him at Dr Who conventions who confirmed as much. Show a bit of respect.

            Many people tend toward irreverence and macabre humor when discussing death and dying. It's not necessarily disrespectful, just a way of coping with a subject that makes many people uncomfortable.

            I think, though, that if anybody has nice memories or stories of Mr. Sheard to share that that's all that should be posted in this thread from now on please. There's been too much misunderstanding

            Thanks,
