• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

So, I just googled my username on here, and found that there are several sites indexing SanctionedSuicide.net, which to me is slightly concerning. Have the site administrators considered this? What are their thoughts on the matter?

I've thought about this a bit. While I want the site to be a resource, I suspect that letting it be indexed by search engines is more likely to bring trouble (journalists looking for an easy article publish; evangelists show up) than it will benefit the site via new members.

I've likened the situation to being like that of the Underground Railroad. We are all seeking our own peculiar form of liberation in a society which seeks to keep us chained to this life ... for our own good, naturally. I suspect a little more secrecy is called for. We are defectors seeking escape, after all.
