I would think Cafe Society since noteworthy so often will equate with famous. The Neil Armstrong thread in “Mundane and Pointless” seems technically fitting, but insulting. Otherwise, I think I’ve seen them in nearly every subforum. I never know where to go to find the discussion on a noteworthy person’s recent death. I’d like the mods to decide on one forum.
Mundane Pointless Stuff I Must Share (MPSIMS)
For general discussion: from frivolous chatter to deep thoughts; from harmless diversions to life-changing announcements. This seems like the best place, by process of elimination if nothing else. I trust people won’t take it the wrong way.
Cafe Society is for the arts, rather broadly defined but pretty much excluding space exploration.
MPSIMS, despite the meaning of the individual words in the acronym, is our default “miscellaneous” forum. Death notices, whether of Dopers or of famous people, go there unless they specifically belong elsewhere. A death notice of a famous performer or author goes in CS; a famous athlete goes in the Game Room; else MPSIMS.

Don’t forget to post a note and a link in the Celebrity Death Pool thread in the Game Room forum. These people are worth points to us, and there’s nothing sadder than another pointless celebrity death.
