I'm not on about purposely seeking them out and singing in front of them. I'm saying if they could hear you sing it perhaps, would you quieten down or stop altogether? If not then that's fine, you honestly don't think the song is in any way related to Hillsborough. I just thought what with the media and people recently relating that song to Hillsborough (again, rightly or wrongly) that some of you might have thought twice about singing it,or even stopped singing it at all.
As for the other examples you've given, you've missed the point I was trying to make. What I was trying to say is that for some people when they write things down (maybe on a forum or on Twitter) they don't have a problem with it. But if they knew their mum was reading it they may think twice about writing the same thing down, or not even write anything at all. So, similarly with the singing of the song, would they do it if the victims family could hear them? That's the point I was trying to make. I think it's called the 'mom test' or something.
Fair enough then, I misunderstood your point.
No, I genuinely don't think it is about Hillsborough at all and I don't really give a damn about what artificial moral outrage the media tries to peddle today. I'd go even further, I know I'm not singing it about Hillsborough. I believe very strongly that no-one should ever die just because they went to a football game. Not Liverpool fans, not Juventus fans, not Rangers fans, not Spartak Moscow fans, not El Ahly fans, nobody. As many other people on this board, I signed the petition for the inquiry, I donated, last year I wrote about Hillsborough on my Hungarian blog to educate people my fellow countrymen about why it's still an important issue, Don't get me wrong, I'm not boasting, I know it's not too much and I could've done more.
But all that means I find it a bit offensive that there may be people out there who would think that I would disrespect anyone who was an innocent victim of a football match, just because I happen to sing a song that the gutter media can deliberately misconstrue for their own financial gain.
I can deal with it of course but it still irks me.
