Why are jellies so hush-hush about the names of recently departed members?
It seems when a long-time or favorite jelly leaves Fluther, it will come up in a thread or be the topic of a Meta question, but the name of the person is kept under wraps. You’ll ask who left and either no one will respond or they’ll PM it to you.
What’s the point of this? They left, why do we need to keep their identity some type of secret? No one has any problem mentioning names months/years after the departure – what’s the difference? Is there some sort of rule I’m unaware of? It just seems pretty silly to me.
