Hooroo, Mate.

Well, here's one, obscure but an interesting factoid worthy of note imo. Australian family courts judge Richard Gee, 83.

 

Took over the court work of a judge who got shot dead in 1980. In 1984, he was in his house when it was bombed - he survived with minor injuries. Rebuilt his garden, including a pool. Drowned in said pool.

Jan Friedl, Australian actress of 'The Getting of Wisdom' (1977), and 'Visitors' (2003), has died aged 68.

 

Want to be careful of uncorroborated tweets as absolute confirmation.

There are Facebook posts from her family if you want to go looking. The lady who tweeted it is verified, I don't particularly see why she'd risk tweeting false information.

I shouldn't have to look (I left FB ages ago). If there are family posts from FB, that is what should be posted on here because that is more solid information than from someone who isn't related or doesn't run for example a Prisoner Cell Block H fansite.

 

Just some friendly advice, I'm not saying she isn't dead, but we can all get caught out.

 

And if it's backed up by a subsequent obituary or news story, please post that as well.

I never took it as anything other than friendly advice. Here's the Facebook post - although that is also uncorroborated information. In which case her status shall remain a mystery.

 

Edit: Here is a further source.

 

Edit: Here, and here are some others.

Huzzah! A cousin's report seems good enough. Remember a follow up confirmation if possible.

 

There are, shall we say, less forgiving forum members... ;)

I well recall my Judy Carne report.

 

It took a whole week for a proper report to come through, even though it had been reported in the local press, based on a woman's FB post who claimed she was her niece. Oh the fun we had discussing that one...

When I was put in the gas chamber for Judy Carne...

 

I wasn't trying to be antagonistic btw. Tweets turn into hoaxes etc etc. Just trying to help a newbie out, not being a DL Nazi at all...

No.

Y-dub posts obits in English; I'm sick to death of our neophyte friend who can't seem to avoid Rosetta Stone obit posting. I sent a complaint to Admins asking them to ask him to clean up his foreign-posting arse. They won't, and Sir Creep will be deemed the bad actor here. Speaks volumes to 'administering' the website.

 

Speak English or Die. Ditto posting.

I mean for fuxsake. If YOU can't read it, neither can fucking I.

The only issue with that is that some obscurities e.g Polish Athletes from the 1972 Olympics are never going to receive an obituary in the English speaking press. If there is a thread for Olympians, surely you'd rather know about their death, no? In any case, I think out of 40 or so deaths I've posted 3 or 4 have been in foreign language. In addition to that, you shouldn't presume everybody else's language skills are limited purely to English - mine aren't for starters. Didn't realise this was such a big issue for you - sorry you feel that way.

Some kind of craziness in Melbourne. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/live/2017/jan/20/car-pedestrians-melbourne-bourke-street-mall-live

 

Dunno if it's terror, attempted massacre or what...

 

I live round the corner from where this happened....

 

Seems it's not terror related, he had a criminal record for physical abusing family members but no links to any organisation or the sort.
