    It has come to my attention via Muad Dib's personal Facebook page that he was just diagnosed with lung cancer, and it may have moved down to his liver. He is going for a biopsy this week and he plans to fight it.

    Mods can you pin this thread for now?

    I'm not sure Muad would want this information posted here. :unsure:

    No, seriously. This isn't BD's information to post. This thread needs to be killed with fire. :brood:

    Say what???? I'm letting you know that someone you know is sick. How about sending him well wishes and healing thoughts and prayers rather than acting like fucking douche bags.

    If true, this is a real bummer. WF folks are passing away way, way too soon. I'm going out with snakebite or gunfire, possibly both.
    Somebody get to the bottom of this!

    I already knew about it.

    I'm just saying that I'm not so sure that he'd want you publicly passing this information around. :shrug:

    I've checked with Muad, he is cool with the thread, and may even drop by. Shitty news, without a doubt, but he is a tough old bastard, and I doubt very much that heaven is ready for him, or that hell would have him.

    Muad believes the south will rise again and establish a new Confederacy. If he can believe that, and hold to it after all of these years, that cancer doesn't stand a chance. ;)
    Seriously, though, he's a tough one, and he'll get through this.

    I had to edit a post, as it used Muad's real name. Many of us are in touch with him off of Wordforge, but he was always pretty concerned about anonymity, let's keep with the familiar Muad.

    I'm having the biopsy Monday. I guess we'll know then, but it is Stage 4. That much we do know.

    It means :bergman:

    ...I would've used the skull and crossbone smiley that Sokar was so fond of, but I don't know the code. Would've been better for such a seasoned rep warrior. :diacanu:

    Also, since Muad is still alive and kicking, can people rip into him now instead of shitting up the memorial with Klansman holding torches or some other shit I'm sure someone might want to post? We don't need a repeat of Sokar's memorial.

    Yanno. Like an Irish wake, WF style....Irish Roast! :polarslam2:

    Don't Southerners get busted on enough on WF as it is? What could a roast bring to the table? :unsure:

    Just trying to head off the pot shots and bashing later, like what we saw with Sokar. I'd like his family and friends to see a decent memorial thread. :shrug:

    Muad wouldn't get dinged like Sokar did. Many people disagreed with him but he wasn't here just to shit on people. There is some decency underneath all of that Confederate brainwashing. :D
