They Don't Have to be Alive, See?

I once wrote this post about the death of one of the people in my Friendster list. He was an offline friend, of course, and we had that specific network to keep in touch. But then he died, and freaky became him in my list, and my network now moonshines as an obituary of sorts.

I still have him in my list though.

Things became freakier when I found out that he's still logging in to his account. And then his Friendster Profile became some online OUIJA board which requires a login.

I was thinking he probably left his Friendster username and password in some over the top Last Will and Testament. But really, what's the point? It's not him updating his profile from his death on, recent testimonials are now eulogies, and what do you say to a dead guy via Friendster anyway?

I went on ahead and dropped him a simple hello just for the hell of it.

In case you missed it, here's the link:
Should you delete a dead friend from your Friendster list?
