It's totally awesome. I LOVE IT.
Instead of clicking over to a different forum page every minute *just in case* a thread I'm interested in has new replies, I can just keep my eye on the top of the page, and instead of wishing and a hoping, I'm a KNOWING when I'm in luck.
I don't think that reverance or respect for the dead needs the dead to be hidden from sight completely. It is the attitude that you bring, as a witness to a dead body, that matters, not the display and witnessing of a dead body, per se.
