While you may not always agree with what is posted here, there are times when it's appropriate to make your opinion known & there are times when it's appropriate to keep your f'ing mouth shut & look the other way. Sometimes saying nothing is the wiser choice, as you obviously have nothing of any value to add.

":camera:'s or shens" I think would be the first post, but there are some responsible folks on here that I'd hope would take this seriously and start asking the right questions.

It actually happened on another forum I used to visit a few years ago. Complete with an obituary for proof. The guy who killed himself is the original poster in this thread. He offed himself over a woman.

We tried to reason with him, and one member even spoke with him over the phone, but we had no impact. If someone is determined to take their own life, they'll do it no matter what.

If someone were to threaten to kill themselves here I would likely protest, but usually those who mean business don't come out and announce they are going to do it.

Banning dNor for being a dick is like banning a sunshine for being beautiful. Everyone loses :brokenheart:

I tried to talk a guy out of suicide once.

I still don't know if he was entirely serious or not but at least he didn't kill himself that night (don't know if he's still alive now)

Depends on who it is. Some of you I might encourage. :p

Just kidding. My Step-Dad used to work a suicide hot-line on a volunteer basis and I have a lot of respect for him for that and countless other things...he taught me a lot about life. You really need to take that kind of thing seriously.

I think it had more to do about the context of the topic. Bad timming by the OP. Suicide im sure is treated very serious here.
