Why does it have to be fake? Just like the person saying they don’t believe the parents are actually grieving.

there’s no way to know. People do strange and unexplainable things sometimes. I personally think the mom is grieving and I do believe the note is real. That doesnt change that I disagree with the sentiments purported by the mom and the note. This site should stay up. And they should take time to go through counseling themselves and understand that responsibility lies within a persons own self, not outside of it.

But saying the note is fake doesnt help anyone. It doesnt really matter if the note is fake or not.
It doesn't matter? I disagree...Its just odd is what I mean.

People do odd things. I dont think its that odd honestly. I think we shouldnt make conjectures about things we don’t know fully as it just complicates things further.

What I mean by it doesnt matter - it doesnt matter in the grand scheme of things. Like someone else said, we shouldnt be fighting tit for tat. We need to be focused on the overarching goals. The note has no bearing on whether or not this site should stay open or closed. I mean they either lied or they didnt. That doesnt change what this site is and why its here.

I understand. I found the note odd when I read it. But it would be hard to find a suicide note that isn't I suppose. I just wish the surviving members of their family didn't use it in the way they did.

That we can agree with. I’ve never been for overpolicing, but I wonder how else we could prevent people from having kids they can’t take care of...? We need more people with centered morals and less narrow minded people...

People that are under 18 have not been allowed to register for years now. We have always been against minors being on the website and we maintain that stance today.
Looking at the user survey results, there are a small number of people who responded that said they were under 18 (Looks like around 5%, I think), so it obviously is an issue. It's obviously difficult to do much more than what is being done already, as any form of age verification would diminish our anonymity, and would be quite draconian. But I'm sure this point will come up again.

In response to Marquis. I've read your post and press release.
The only reason I'm aware of these events is due to an e-mail today alerting me to the change of internet address for Sanctioned Suicide. After several months absence I thought that I'd come to find out why.

A long time ago I used to work for the Samaritans, and on occasion spoke by telephone to people preparing to die, probably some of them really did die. We were trained to respect the wishes of the caller, and if the caller wanted to have a conversation as they were dying, we had to allow that, and do our best. And we were well trained, so hopefully we didn't do a bad job. But one crucial thing is that we needed to ask them if they wanted help.

I've known people who have died very painfully, over a long period, from cancer. I've known a brave and dignified man who died from MND. And still most of the governments of the world forbid euthanasia. This is Christian morality, and I reject that. Why must everyone follow Christian codes ? Isn't there freedom to choose ? In the US isn't that in the Constitution ?

Judging from a few conversations I've seen on the site, there are some very young people here, this must be a concern and I strongly advise that this should be addressed.
Cleanthes.

Un comunicado de prensa sobre eventos recientes: https://sanctioned-suicide.org/press/PR_SanctionedSuicide.pdf

Ha sido una mañana muy dura, por decir lo menos.

En primer lugar, quiero ofrecer mi más sentido pésame a Sharon Luft, que perdió a su hijo hace 2 semanas.

En segundo lugar, para aquellos que buscan emprender una cruzada para intentar eliminar este sitio web debido a afirmaciones falsas y exageradas, este sitio es una comunidad de apoyo para miles de personas. He hablado con innumerables personas que están mucho mejor que agradecen a este sitio por ayudarlos a recuperarse. Las afirmaciones sobre las personas que transmiten en vivo sus suicidios son falsas. NUNCA hemos permitido eso aquí, y ni siquiera estoy seguro de si eso se ha hecho antes.

Las personas menores de 18 años no pueden registrarse desde hace años. Siempre hemos estado en contra de la presencia de menores en el sitio web y hoy mantenemos esa postura.

La mafia social que intenta denunciar los hilos no leerá esto, pero al menos los que lo hagan comprenderán nuestra posición.

En otras noticias, nuestro dominio de respaldo está en https://sanctioned-suicide.org en caso de que este sea eliminado.

Sinceramente,
Marqués
Solo puedo estar muy agradecida por este sitio, es un refugio para mi. Cuando intentaba acceder y no encontró la página una amarga y profunda tristeza se apoderó de mi. Un millón de gracias por seguir en pie, siempre cuidando de nosotros.
Mi total apoyo esta con vosotros.
SS es mi refugio y el de muchas personas.
Que triste es que la ignorancia unida al odio lleven a esas mafias sociales a ejercer más daño.

Gracias Marquis

I didn't go online for about a month, so was sadly surprised that ss.com down. Took me a while to find new domain. Thank you mods.
