It's probably our dear Biggs, the moderator!
I blame 4Chan, where this probably happened.

Shit, I think I popped my repost cherry.

Thats what I get for assuming I'm on here enough to be familiar with every thread that gets posted.

Oh, and I won't believe you until you link me.

Yea we had a big argument about the 'toughness' of suicide and learned that Barbarossa is a moron :). Then it got locked and I'm probably going to be infracted, damn it.

That thread did not even make it to page 2. Therefore, it does not qualify as an existing thread related to this topic.

I dunno how many infraction points Biggs has given me and thus I couldn't get any more happier if he doesn't respond. However, I hope it's because he's fired and not because he went emo and became suicidal. Then again he's moderating Forumfall and one week here makes you lose all your faith in Humanity.

Pills are for pussies, If you're going to make your suicide public, you should at least make it entertaining. He should have done something like this:

It was just a matter of time, and it will get worse eventually. Has anyone seen "Untraceable"? Murders on the web, with death accelerated by the number of hits? First guy takes hours to die, last guy in minutes, even though if NOBODY came to watch nothing would happen and the person would live? Would he have killed himself if people didn't cheer him on. Though it's real life issues that led to it, the Internet communication was just a catalyst.

And "lack of control over what people put on the internet"? Well, DUH. It's the entire purpose of it. If it becomes as tightly controlled as what goes into a library's shelves, it will A) become a ghost town and B) the addition of new information will stop or slow (as is the information in today's libraries), because there aren't enough people on the planet to monitor and censor all the people on the planet. And bottom line? Suicides existed even before Internet! Gasp! And rigid control over content will not stop suicides.

Though I'm glad the reporter sees that the Internet is also an outlet and perhaps a source for help, not just the devil full of fools, freaks and felons, it's rare in this day and age when media prefer to say "a man has been shot" blaming the gun rather than "a man has been murdered" which places the blame where it belongs.
