    He is one of the 3 MCs from the Beastie Boys. I spent most of yesterday listening to 'em at the office. RIP. :(

    He, and his band was unknown here, in Poland. I'll check out their songs later.

    I'm sure that fans of this type of music knows them, but I mean that they are unknown for general public. I asked some friends, and most of them had no idea who they are.
    Poland is a strange country - we don't even have the Apple Store.

    @TheMoonwalls

    Can we lighten up a bit? I started the topic out of respect for MCA. You did not even know who he is and now you come after me as though I'm trolling my own thread? This is not a funeral and there is no reason I/we cannot have fun conversing with one another. Making a quirky comment about the apple store is in no way disrespectfull.

    Cheers

    @RP I'm not telling that you are trolling or anything. In my country if you are talking about a dead person, it's not welcome to make jokes even on a different topic. You should end the conversation about dead person, with respect, and then you are free to talk about anything.
    It's just a different culture.
    In my country you are not even welcome to tell anything bad (even if this bad thing is true, and unimportant) about a dead person (it's not a crime, but you can be insulted or assaulted after this).

    @TheMoonwalls That's your country, don't expect everyone to bend over and do what is best befitting for you. Welcome to the global community. I'm not unfamiliar with cultural differences. I lived in Switzerland for 5 years and traveled most of Europe during that time. I also worked with international firms and websites. Never such an issue as I have seen just now. Again, your cultural practices do not reside inside the forums.

    I am a military veteran, I could as easily say that I took great offense to what you posted to someone else in a recent discussion.

    In addition we were not talking about a dead person at that point, it was the fact you don't have an Apple store. I can obviously see the difference, I hope you can get past that and see it too rather than falling back on this cultural crutch.

    I see where this is going, so I'll stop right now.

    Let's get back on topic.
