really? did it completely not occur to you that people who have lost someone who was very important to them to suicide would be really hurt by this thread? did that fly completely by your dead-inside lawyer head? seriously will, there is no excuse for this thread, at all. as for your innane attempt to tie a relationship between abusive posting and suicide, that's unbelievably screwed up. i suppose, theoretically, that somebody could be so wrong in the head that they come here, start a fight with someone, fail to recieve a 'it's okay we love and forgive you response' and therefore sink further into the emotional hole that they are in. personally, i would suppose that if i could involve a suicidal person in an arguement, they would be less likely to kill themselves, simply because there is something in their life. however, this board is full of good people. when i came to here, to this board where i knew no-one, it was because i was depressed and had to talk it out. i opened up about how upset and depressed i was (post rhythym of life) and was greated by accepting and understanding strangers. talking to the people i met on and through this board was what enabled me to move past that terrible night. will, i understand that you may jsut be trying to provoke some thought and discussion, but this wasn't worth it. not for me. not for a lot of people.
