I did a lot of crazy stuff. But this site has opened my eyes to how cruel people can be to each other. And how caring. I would love to see it taken down.

Log in to Reply Nanika 2/14/2018 - 11:27 pmI should have died in November 2016 but I survived, just because we want to die don’t make.us less human we can still be as cruel as the rest. You mean the site to be taken down? Didn’t get last part from @ravingbean ‘s comment.

At least popped up in some blog posts (Google the site name), and they have a Twitter page (fairly public site) Obviously it’s a touchy subject for many folks.But the national prevention hotline? People talk about wanting to die and like in a professional setting it can have consequences with saying too much but that’s pretty widely accepted, there are plenty of chats where people discuss things freely as you mentioned (and this tends to lean towards pro-life while still allowing a bit of leeway with speech). There’s been efforts at ‘raising awareness’, and I think more people at least skirt the edge of this type of misery than not.If it was a pro place, yeah I’d see it’d be easy. For any legal or generally regarded ‘moral’ reasons the rules of the site do a fair job of protecting itself, in my (probably a bit uninformed, but whatever) opinion. Log in to Reply ravingbean 2/14/2018 - 11:54 pmYes. I read a post in which an adult was encouraging a teenager to commit suicide. I am all for freedom of speech, but that made me sick. This person seems to think that other people sinking into the pit of despair and wanting to kill themselves is amusing. She herself claims to be without the strength to end her own life. Either she goes away or the whole site comes down. I will make it my mission. Log in to Reply SP Administrator 2/15/2018 - 8:33 amWow, way to win over your fellow human beings. Misread someone’s response, and then threaten the entire site if you don’t get your way? Way to not spread hate there. Log in to Reply itsoversoon6 2/16/2018 - 10:18 amBefore you start that battle, think of what you’re taking away from people. You gotta be damn sure that the incidents you describe outweighs all the good this community does for people that are out of options. Don’t let perfection stand in the way of something good.

Some people have been blocked when it’s needed, or limited. Better than some kind of personal vendetta you don’t have as much capacity to enforce.I tend to think if someone is going to go for it they will regardless of what anyone else says (though not all are at that point -usually calm resolution) and people tend to be mixed between a type of acceptance or requests to reconsider with that type of post. Overall it’s a mostly caring bunch, and usually more careful with the younger members (even if those can be jerks too).As for you ‘bringing down’ the site? Good luck with that. Admins been clear where they stand (see the sticky’d post at the top of the site) and this place is pretty rare for what it is, despite drawbacks and/or trolls.

Genius me did not think that anyone would be able to interfere either. The lengths certain people went to to expose and break up my plan still astounds me.BTW, Thank you for being on here COD:S. Log in to Reply itsoversoon6 2/16/2018 - 10:16 amI wouldn’t say surprised… I’ve been on and off suicidal for more than 10 years now and I still can’t answer why I haven’t done it yet. Even during my “happy” times, I realize that I still don’t know why I haven’t done it. I have all the reasons I need lined up, even though I’m also past the point of looking for justification. I think I just keep fuelling it with hope… Right now I have the most amazing girl in my life. No one ever understood me so well and lifted me so much… but I’m broken. I already know where it ends. I’ve been through it so many times my actions doesn’t surprise me anymore. It just is what it is. All of a sudden I’ll be gone.Reading through that, it’s a bunch of nonsense… I’ll post it anyways. Maybe someone can relate to parts of it. Log in to Reply Leave a Comment Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
