You do realize this group is named 'alt.obituaries', not 'alt.inform.someone.died', right?
Did you not notice that every subject in this group has an obituary or if one is not yet available an indication of the source of the information followed by an obituary when it is available?
Bob Fuss is not a household name (except perhaps in your household). You did him a disservice by not providing any biographical information about him in addition to no obituary. When teased gently about this, you choose to throw out an "asswipe" insult. Ass meet your wipe.
