    To be honest, i think that is quite a bold statement to make. I'm glad to hear none of your family or friends have committed suicide, but i don't think you (or anyone) can say with certainty that they haven't, at some point in their lives, contemplated it. - But then that is just the point. Suicide, or even the contemplation of suicide, is often a personal 'inward' struggle that may never be evident to the people around, including family and friends.

    Thanks for your insights.

    That was a lot of blather. Then again, maybe the discussion had gone as far as it possibly could. 🙄

    Without an adequate frame of reference it's difficult if not impossible to understand the topic of an intellectual discussion.
    Thanks for your reasoned approach.

    This sounds a bit like 'Asian values'.

    What nonsense. But it does say a lot about your attitude here.

    If not an ad hoc attack on fellow community members, how then would you describe your smearing of those who disagree with your purported version of the 'truth" as being purveyors of "outright falsehoods and premeditated lies" on page 4?

    Using a person's happiness in the birth of a child to make snide comments about suicide is obscenely bad behaviour. Even for you, GB.

    {edited for typos only}
    Grampy Bobby's comments about suicide in this thread possibly stand as the most offensive I've read on this forum in the nearly 9 years I've been posting here.

    I hope his self-anointed condemnatory bigotry on this topic is a sufficient revelation to those who swallow his " lonely old man" propaganda.

    Yeah, I must be honest and say that I have been triggered,
    emotionally scarred, and forever mauled in my soul by his
    offensive views on suicide. They are ignorant and make
    a mockery of the despair of the human condition and the misery
    that many carry on their hearts on a daily basis, not to mention how
    much such comments reveal a complete disregard for the
    other.

    Which is a very good opportunity to remind all:

    Be careful sharing your personal details on RHP with a certain
    someone. Users portraying themselves as a harmless 'lad', white hair
    and all (even with imaginary friends who persist to exist despite the
    medication) are known to fish sensitive data which can then be used
    for passive aggressive rants, nauseating copy pasting, and tasteless
    disclosures to attract attention to themselves.


    I sincerely want people to be careful with this user. It is a wolf in
    sheepskin, literally, not figuratively. The misery and damage it has
    brought upon many is nothing to be laughed at.


    Stay safe, RHP. Say no to emotional predators.

    Your trite comments about being "emotionally scarred" doesn't really help.
