EP is about experiences isnt it?
Experiences can be bad as well as good.
Personally I like my eyes to be opened from time to time.
Well you can choose what you read on EP cant you?
It's not like it's shoved in your face.
I never do. I don't watch the news or buy a paper for the same reason.
However, this is the place where people can come to talk about what is on their mind. If it happens to be the latest tragedy, well, then that is what they will talk about. I usually don't bother commenting (can't talk about something I know nothing about, and if I don't get the news, I know nothing about it) unless it is a personal tragedy of their own, in which case, I might comment and commiserate.
