    You actually saw people doing that? Jesus, what kind of forums do you frequent?
    I have never seen anything like that in all the years I have been online. That is horrible.

    Jag, there have been legal cases where a person committed under the pretense that the other person is going to commit suicide also. This is from March 2010:

    I've not witnessed it first hand but I am aware of cases where it has happened because of reports on the Internet, and news programs on television.

    Actually seeing it first hand would be seriously traumatic, even for a person simply viewing it.

    Candid, but anonymous online conversations foster a sort of courage in me where I had little.

    Everyone here has witnessed the downside of online interaction. In some cases, the sewage spilled is revolting. That doesn't mean, however, that secrecy is always a threat.

    It doesn't matter if you're an "open asshole" or an "in the closet asshole". Both are species of asshole as far as I'm concerned.

    ... I've had people do that to me in real life.

    You'd be surprised to know how many people don't think this way, I've met a few IRL of course, and some from this very forum. Where the person doesn't become human till they see them.

    It's really just best to assume the worst about every person you meet. Seriously.

    Yesterday I was watching a Chris Rock special and he said something along the lines of, he'll never be surprised to see someone acting racist. You'll never catch him off guard with it, he would be completely unsurprised if one day while he was talking to Regis Feldman about Madagascar, if Regis lept from his seat with a sharpened pencil and started stabbing him in the neck calling him the n-word over and over again.
