The days of having fun online are over! Members threatening to commit suicide is making me sick to my stomach. The advice to these members is almost as disturbing as the suicide threats because people aren't supportive of one another until they threaten to take their own lives. Then they are paid lip service. I hope for any member who is down, that they will find the strength to continue living and overcome whatever is troubling them.

I have enjoyed much of the dialog that I read here, but issues that are serious and for which we are powerless over are not what I spend time online for. I hope this website can rebuild a sense of community where people are supportive of one another before they cry out like two members recently have.

I have responsibilities that need my attention in face to face life.

The internet does that. It's filled with horrible, uncaring people. The internet causes the Dark Tetrad traits, it's not "unique" to just this website (although it might actually be worse on this website).

I don't think you understand why she's leaving. We have people that are suicidal and there have been close calls and she can't take the stress. Sure you may be happy with her being gone, but the reason why she's leaving is serious especial since these people can be dead. Do you understand that? There are people's lives that are on the line and you take it as a joke. WTF?!?!

While I never got to know you intimately, it is regretful that you have decided to leave. Just as it does you, it pains me to see young people such as myself who feel as if suicide is the only way out. Considering both have done this (or thought about doing this) because of bullying to some degree, I hope certain members on the site silently take note of this. Good luck with all future endeavors.

F16 is not my type. Mental and emotional stability are prerequisites for dating me, after all.

What bad advices are these? My experience is people have been really supportive here, surprisingly so. If you are saying people are supportive only when people get suicidal, I don't think so, a lot of people here turn out to be empathetic. But, maybe I've just missed these bad posts.

I have enjoyed much of the dialog that I read here, but issues that are serious and for which we are powerless over are not what I spend time online for. I hope this website can rebuild a sense of community where people are supportive of one another before they cry out like two members recently have.

I'm sorry, I've been away from DDO, who are these two again? I think I only know one of them.
