But when someone types that they want to kill themselves it makes me wonder. I'm embaressed to admit I do have a tiny bit of a conscious.

I don't think an adult would do a wind-up on a teen forum.

Might a teen do a wind-up? Sure.

But I'd rather be wrong by believing him, than by goading someone who was actually suicidal. I could sure live with making that mistake better.

Nothing wrong with a bit of empathy mixed in with skepticism. Conscience is a wonderful and difficult thing.

LMFAO! I just googled 'neckclicker' and it would seem this person's major problem is psychological - i.e. an addiction to online forums.

Either that, or he's trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records.

I have seen it happen loads on BE, more in the regional threads. Where a new thread will be posted and it is out of the "ordinary" and everyone jumps on them like a pack of wolves. Within about 3 pages the OP is in a state and never comes back to such a great forum.

We tell people to get to know us if they start on us but do we/you get you know them?

We should try to suss people out better before we bite. Come on guys your all a great bunch of really nice and interesting individuals with a great sence of humor. Please think when or if he comes back, lets tell him to get the help he needs and not to encouage someone to end their lives.

Cassie, I appreciate what you're saying but I've also done what UE did.. this boy has had every good suggestion under the sun and seems to be getting some kind of satisfaction from continuing his threads exactly as this one has gone.
I don't know why he'd do that.

But his name, IP, location & prolly parent's phone number might result in a 'welfare check' or whatever you call it over there.

Something I've been saying for a long time here. Interesting how you see people's personality when it's a new poster and not a regular member of the BE schoolyard gang and the popularity contest is being played

If it is someone taking the p**s then I still think they need help. They sound sick in the head to type what they have.

I also don't like being taken for a mug, so I'll let the rest of you carry on.

I just can't bring myself to type anything nasty or sarcastic when I think the whole thread is very very strange.

I hope you don't mean that, as someone whose had someone close to them take their own life I can't put into words the pain one endures, and the 'what ifs" that are with us our entire lives. So please if you really feel like that go and find someone you trust now and talk to them, tell them what you feel and why, ask them for help. If you don't mean it because you want to shock people I urge you to think about those who are in a great deal of emotional pain because of suicide and not to write about such things. And on that note I will close this thread now because I don't like the way its heading.

I think it's time the OP found a forum more appropriate. Thread closed.
