    I'd guess because KFDF needs to have some extended drama with a member who just can't give it up every two weeks or so.

    How else am I supposed to respond to personal attacks? I don't feel that my POV is above reproach, but I do feel that my pov has not gotten across. What is wrong with the pov that pictures of people getting hurt, possibly killed (killboy didn't know how that crash would turn out) is not exactly fodder for personal entertainment. I do feel like my pov is above being ridiculed, however, that is apparently not the prevailing feeling on this board. Apparently the only way to get my point across is to make baseless personal attacks against complete strangers. The couple on the red bike are not members of this forum, they did not share those pictures here, they were posted here purely for their entertainment value and nothing else. They are not "sharing their story" as you put it.

    In your instance, the pictures were being taken after the accident had occurred, and you had a general idea of the condition of everyone involved. What if your son had been hurt much more seriously, and you turned around and there was someone taking pictures? What if you saw a bunch of people with cameras while his sheet-draped body was being loaded into a morgue van?

    Alot of active imaginations here, he's just making a U-turn. As for fail, he's getting paid to ride a motorcycle...

    Don't you read the other posts?? That couple on the red bike posted those pics on another forum. If they didn't want them made public, they wouldn't have posted them online. So yes, they did "share their story".

    The photog didn't know the outcome of the accident when he took the pics, but how do you know he didn't before he posted them?

    If you don't want to look at pics of riders crashing and doing all kinds of stupid things, why are you even looking at this thread?

    Ya know what, you all are right.

    I'm sorry for interrupting your discourse.

    Thinking about it, this entire thread is about ridiculing others for their mistakes. Pointing fingers and laughing. An overall feeling of superiority because someone else's mistakes were caught on film.

    By saying it's ok to laugh at bikes with car tires and pirates with tassels and bikes going over the double yellow but NOT at people who crash I'm being a hypocrite, the guy who blows the corner in front of killboy might blow one down the road and end up crashing, and it's purely by luck that there wasn't an oncoming car when said rider did blow the corner.

    And by trying to express my opinion that it's not ok to laugh at others misfortune in an entire thread dedicated to laughing at others misfortune, I should have expected what I was going to get.

    There's no feeling of superiority involved. This is the forum version of America's Funniest Home videos and everybody gets to be the host.
