well, as it appears, there are three distinct groups:
- people who commit suicide
- people who attempt suicide
- people who talk about commiting suicide

this is not my personal impression, it's kind of a status quo in terms of suicide research.

I guess what Link wanted to say that he is frustrated by people who only talk about it, or who try it in a way that is destined to fail. on that point, I am sort of torn.
on the one hand, I do kind of understand that. there are so many ways to get help, talk to a psychologist, friends, etc., that might help to steer one in the right direction. it does sometimes make me mad, because these individuals -and I will be flamed for this- DO not know the degree of despair one feels when seriously, honestly considering suicide.
but, on the other hand, it is always an expression of personal despair, and I guess that is what it has to be taken for. even "moderate" suffering can make one want to express it in the strongest imaginable way.

also, I think none of the posters who were hurt by his post here were people link was actually refering to, but they have the right to be offended nonetheless, of course.
