Yeah, happens all the time, a fair few people have supposedly ctb then logged back in under another account to partake in the ensuing grieving.

I suspect people do use this place for that but in reality there's nothing to be learned about the traditional methods here, the "how to hang yourself" thread etc is fundamentally worthless.

You are correct about hanging in one sense, but do take into account that not everyone is aware what hanging actually entails. If you were like me, you would think that hanging entails actual suffocation, which is not the case, since it's all about just blocking the carotid arteries - so suicide is like any field of expertise, for those of us who are new to it.

What you said is probably true about jumping and such, though, since there's nothing special to be learned about it.

Yeah but none of that information is exclusive to this website, and asking for info on those methods here just leads to certain people appointing themselves as experts despite knowing no more than the next person.

You are probably correct, but someone who's suicidal may be content with the first resource that they find. In my own case, I was researching the Helium method three years ago, and ended up here.

Do you mean that there are members here who seem to deem themselves to be experts at suicide..? I'm guessing that they are simply trying to find a space for themselves in which they can feel useful - or maybe even superior to others. I would disagree with them in so far as this is not the place to be superior in any way, but I also believe that it's useful for people to share their knowledge, since it's probably unlikely that a new member is searching for ancient knowledge from when the community was built, but, rather, somewhat new information that someone has used lately and seemed to have succeeded in their attempt at ending their life.

I would say, though, just let those Mr.-know-it-alls to pretend that they are at the top of the world with all the suicide knowledge - no one here seems to care about that kind of attitude anynow, since all that matters is that one finds correct and up-to-date information about a possible method, and not who is the king of the world.

Oh no, I'm sorry if I worried anyone. I just wanted to write a quick message to say I'm still alive. I very rarely use the forum or check my notifications. Started a new medication a couple of months ago that seems to be helping (it's not a cure, but it's progress) so I want to see how I get on and commit to giving this a chance before deciding whether to stay or go, and I chose to distance myself from this site for the time being.

If anyone wants to keep in touch, I do have Discord and Protonmail so feel free to drop me a line if you'd like to touch base here and there. Sending you all lots of love. :heart:

Кто знает, что случилось с участником Pan Tofel? Я вижу, что его удалили. он был так добр ко мне... Может быть, его избавили от страданий. кто знает. но как-то грустно.

Thank you. I did wonder. I hope they had an easy passing.

Actually I'm feeling very sombre about this. I was reading their thread about their experience with SN and they were very helpful with their responses to questions.

May they be free from suffering.

They contributed a lot to the forum and they were a highly appreciated colleague in my team. It's sad that they're gone but I hope they found peace.

The 1rst person who replied was banned... Sad...

Was Summers self banned or banned? He didn't say goodbye to me... But if he could... It means he didn't care... We shared discord... But ... Yeah... Nope...

Summers self-banned sometime yesterday, I’m sorry.
We can self ban? So he hated us? He hated... Me...

Thanks...

I wish I understood why. Maybe talking with my lost cause self made him realize that his life isn't so bad after all...
Can a self ban be undone? Did he deactivated or deleted? But he stopped talking to me before that... So I guess he didn't have any affection for me after all. He said he'd do anything but didn't hug me when I asked... I'm stupid...

This I why I didn't let myself love for 20 years... They say they care but don't discuss stuff and trash you... Or become maniac stalkers... I wish he stalked me...
More grief more mindfuck... Why can't the universe give me a break... Break my neck
Damnit I just wanted to love! Who want to be my new favorite and get cursed? Happens all the time...

Oh my goodness. This is another one of those that just "hit" me, to read about. @Symbiote was very helpful to me, and had a very "distinct" personality on the forum. I am very sorry for your loss, Rain.

Unfortunately, this is the nature of this place. People leave.

Of all the places in the world, this is one where you can safely assume that people leaving is not about "you" (generic you). And circumstances do not always allow for good-byes. I am very sorry you are hurting, and I hope you will feel better soon, but it is certainly completely unmerited for you to be doing a thing that looks like you're blaming yourself or something like that.
