Conversations Since OSnews is also a general-geek-news site when the geekiness rises to a certain level of geekiness and universal impact, would the news about Gary Gygax be appropriate to submit?

Given the backgrounds of many of the people on this site, I think it would be most appropriate.

I've gotta agree with fretinator on that one. Definitely appropriate.

RIP Gary Gygax.

I'm totally convinced that news about the Gigax would be well received on OSnews.

It's many people's foremost Geek portal, isn't it? (along with Ars, of course ;) )

I probably kicked a few D&D players' asses during high school...

So it'd be rather.. Hypocritical to post news on the poor guy ;) .

LOL - Thom, how dare you...

I declare my dodge on you! (don't look for the reference, I'll provide it myself: my favourite webcomic http://goblinscomic.com/d/20060204.html )
