A lot of the folks romanticizing Ghost apparently knew absolutely nothing about the guy.

A very large portion of his Vent personality was driven by substance abuse. His infamous "Cawgs or Die" salutation came in arguably his most drug-induced post ever authored on this forum.

You folks laughed at the guy and his wild act during his time here.

It wasn't an act though, and it is THE reason he passed away at 34. While there was a small, small handful here who actually knew Graeme in real life, there was nothing entertaining or positive about what everyone seemed to "love" about the Ghost character on the Vent. It was simply sad, and tragic.

He was 34. He's now passed on because of a severe substance abuse problem. And a bunch of idiots who never knew or met the guy think it's cute to "honor" his memory with a phrase that memorializes his lowest and most embarrassing moment on the internet.

But y'all make yourselves some stupid t-shirts or fly a banner that says "Cawgs or Gie!" if you want to. Nobody with a half a brain think it's a nostalgic memorial.

And I say this as one of Graeme's sworn enemies in his internet life. He was desperate for validation on this forum. If y'all really believe he'd be proud to be remembered by a "Cawgs or Gie" legacy, you've never known an addict. They may laugh it off with you, but it embarrasses them. Y'all remember his "Cawgs or Gie!" post - I remember his follow up post the next day sheepishly trying to explain that post from the night before. He certainly wasn't proud of it. Graeme and I despised each other online, but I felt genuinely sad for the guy in reality. Honestly. His death is tragic, and should serve as a warning and a lesson to anyone struggling with drugs or alcohol.

If y'all are hellbent on memorializing the guy, have Barney or Ashton, or even Canada, share something real about the guy. Folks who actually knew him and can shed some light on the real man behind a tragic addiction. Something sincere about Graeme, and not "Ghost." Keep up this "Cawgs or Gie" campaign, and you simply continue to poke fun at a guy even in death, and make light of something VERY serious that led to the death of someone far too young. I'd bet your time and money spent on this that Graeme's wish would be for someone else not to suffer the same addiction nor meet his premature passing.
