Shadow Lists

No, it doesn't.  The aim of the Shadow List is to offer a comparable alternative to the Death List.

There's nothing wrong with people making their own personal list, but that's not the same thing.


Quite agree with COMPARABLE.
Concerning the two names that Ulitzer95 highlighted: Ted Luscombe obituary was published in The Times, Francis Jackson obituary in The Guardian. 

Are obituaries in these newspapers DL worthy?

 

And please recognise that the ‘perspective’ that I was referring to was that of Ulitzer95 in making their observations.

Think you're confused between the DDP and the DL.

The point of the Shadow List is to try and pick the sort of names that the Committee might pick.   Admittedly they do go for an occasional anomaly, but not many.  It's not an exact science, but I don't think those two are people I would expect the Committee to pick, regardless of obit status.

?????????????????
 

I’m not entirely certain that this makes any sense whatsoever. Perhaps someone from ‘The Committee’ might want to clarify this thought. And what constitutes an ‘Anomaly’.

 

If you’re trying to suggest that many followers of DeatLiist should give up creating Shadow lists and simply go away I think you’re getting close to that point.

No, of course I'm not suggesting that.  I've already explained that there's a difference between the Shadow List and other personal lists.

A couple of names that I would describe as anomalies are Ruby Muhammed and William Gates Sr.  

By and large the names on the DL are usually those that would be familiar to most British people of a certain age.

Well I suppose that you do have to be of a certain age to recognise Mary Lee and the Roy Fox band

Debating on DeathList can be mildly amusing, but ultimately meaningless.

5/50 hits for me for now

 

Sidney Poiter

June Brown

Mikhail Gorbachev

Queen Elizabeth II

Marsha Hunt

 

Was about to include Jerry Lee Lewis yesterday, but then he was suddenly alive.

Did notice however that I hadn't include Marsha Hunt.

Can't believe how many names I had on last year's list that I didn't include this year who I did not include this year.

Leslie Phillips takes me to double figures (10) of fully competitive with the DL hits.

 

None of your barely known foreigners, Scottish footballers or minor historical figures here, baby!
