I know it isn’t the most common, but I’m wondering why it is so common.

Probably because it seems so easy and painless, just tie a belt to a doorknob, sit down and you'll be dead in no time. Celebrities allover the world are doing it, so it must be super effective too, right?
But if this forum or any other forum where people discuss suicide prove one thing is that this is not really that easy or effective. There are posts like "I tried hanging but I failed" - every single day. "I can't do it, I can't pass out, it hurts too much, it doesn't work" etc.

Personally I don't see the appeal of a method where you can back out so easily. I'll be doing full suspension.

I noticed alot of the successful partials we're done using bungee type cords, so the further you sit down the larger the pressure. I think these celebs were really determined not just in there careers but this also. Imagine being a comic night after night yet continuing no matter what.

How exactly is this doorknob method done? I was considering this as my ctb. Would a long scarf work?

I think people are attracted to it at first because it’s perceived as easy and accessible...until they discover that it’s easier said than done. (Speaking from first hand experience here!)
