Well is it really the internet that causes some people to kill themselves and it's not other things from before within people? For example how do we know it's the internet? Do they say it is before they commit suicide, or is there a specialist who is able to accurately determine that it was the internets fault while investigating the suicides?


It's a combination of things. But social media is an excellent place to anonymously harrass people you don't like.


Tell me about it. 8)

I too posted a PTSD scenario on an internet forum once, and got banned from the from as a result, with people saying it was offensive to them.


Firstly, "Curious".
Secondly, I think there is more to the story than you are telling us.
Thirdly, this was not a "scenario". It really happened to me. 8)

And lastly, I think you are missing the point I am making.
Trauma can be overcome.
Does this not provide "hope"?

Oh well I am just not sure I want to talk about the PTSD event now, no offense :).

What do you mean when you say hope, or hope how?

I haven't been suicidal for 36 years.
Is that a sufficient explanation? ;)
