Re: Actor Jonathan Winters dies at 87

It would be just as easy for the moderator to come along and merge the memorial threads. I think it also makes more sense to let people create a unique thread for each person rather than have a ginormous pinned "mourning" thread.

A central "mourning" thread would also generate some potentially confusing overlap, especially when you have a string of celebrities die in close succession, such as this past week with Roger Ebert, Margaret Thatcher, Annette Funicello, and now Jonathan Winters. These threads fall off quickly enough (the Ebert thread, derailed by political discussions, notwithstanding).
