I'm sorry but I don't blame the people egging him on. That's such a common thing to do it's rather common-place and 'normal'. For instance, when online in games and people start to moan and what not, especially in World of Warcraft, people will say, "Just pull the f***in trigger already!" or the common emote, "/wrists". So really, it's so common for people to say it that it's surreal, as the article says, when someone actually does it.

The people I feel bad for are not Kevin (the suicidee), but rather his two 12 year old daughters. Scared for life. And to make matters worse, he did it ONLINE. In a damned chat-room of all the places. He not only affected his family, but everyone in that chat-room.

There's just to much controversy on this subject, but one thing to me is very clear: doing it over a chat room and scarring people for life, is rather pathetic...

hmm i agree sort of with you but i mean you can't blame the guy, he was suffereing from depression. Thats what people do, its ashame to see what computers have done now days, like that chinese boy that played World of Warcraft for about 36 hours straight then killed himself to be with the "WoW gods"...althought i would have thought that the father would havn't done that because of his two children, like thinking of them would have stopped.

That is really sad Even if you werent egging him on and you were watching, you would be watching in horror, it could of been a 10 year old girl/boy who didnt know anybeter and where just watching, in a way he should of knew better. I bet this will set off a new weird ass craze...


EDIT:
Jenox I agree with you, I mean jesus he went into a chat room where the subject was spcificly for arguing what the hell did he expect? As for letting all them people witness that is totaly... well you get the picture lol
