    Can you imagine that guy sitting in front of his computer watching people 'off' themselves for his own pleasure?

    Either a god complex or he didn't have enough guts to do himself and be quiet little blip on the map.

    Gadzillions of dollars of innovation and this is the best he can do to utilize it. He needa a hobby - like checking the forums on Mac Rumors WAY to many times a day! :p

    What a sick, sick man.

    That is a very chilling article. The dark side of the Internet. Sounds as though this man has personality issues. He's 26 and still lives with his parents. Kudos to the Canadian woman that alerted police.

    Actually I don't have anything against suicide pacts. If people want to kill themselves, they will, either by themselves or in groups. Doesn't make it wrong in the least.

    Suicide is a very sad situation. A result of depression a feeling of such despair and pain, that the person feels that death is the only way out. In many cases it is a call for help. If a person that is close to them can sometimes pickup the clues and get them the needed help before its too late. When in that condition it's hard to see anyway out. Usually counseling and medication to change brain chemicals will again let the person see that life is truly worth living. Such a devastating thing on those that are left, the feeling that I should have done something

    I think that suicide could be deemed as the 'easy' way out. After all it is much more difficult to live here and go on. It is a shame that so many people feel this is a way to satisfy what is not working for them in life. Having a young brother die at the age of 5 makes me not really understand this mindset - at least it changed mine. Why 'choose' to take away life, when it can be taken away at any moment - enjoy this gift and make the most of it.

    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your 5 year old brother. Was it cancer or some other illness. A death at that age is very difficult? :(

    It was long ago. Died of a little known disease called Reye's Syndrome - attacks the liver and the brain a rare complication following the flu or chicken pox.

    That is my philosophy as well, but many people have undiagnosed mental illnesses that contribute to their suicidal thoughts. More effort needs to be made by our society to diagnose and treat these.

    Umm, did they cut your hours at work BV?

    Just wondering, because you do seem to spending a lot of time around here of late. Heck, I think all the regulars probably spend waaaay too much time here anyway - at least I'm sure that their family probably think they do, even if they themselves won't admit it.

    personally, I find the woman that the Canadian found out about just as creepy as the guy orchestrating everything. I mean, having a ridiculously morbid God complex is one thing, but being willing to kill both of your children before killing yourself? That's just inconceivable. I mean, I'm a teenage guy and don't particularly like kids, but that is still so far beyond my comprehension, it's just.... ugh.

    I would hope that you are just making light of the situation. Hopefully the thought of suicide has never entered your mind.

    I think the guy who designed the Heightmax ad at the top of the page should enter some kind of suicide pact. That thing is really annoying. [​IMG]

    No.

    I've created a doppleganger to post here while I'm out having fun...

    I've been on leave – the housework's done, I don't have a TV, don't feel like reading, am pottering on the Mac, rippings CDs – Pshop on one monitor, MR on the other... I'm also a grown woman who has no-one to answer to except myself. :)

    Happy Valentines, everyone!
