  •  Suicide is funny (15+ / 0-)

    Thanks for your comment and for keeping your cool. I drove to work this morning planning a response diary. It basically consisted of variations on the words "fuck" and asshole"; discussions of banned concepts like GBCW, TTFN, and the like; a little narrative on the impact of suicide on my life, and  on my Mom's - watching her get teary eyed about my brother's death 30 years ago yesterday was really special - so yeah I take it personally when members of this "community" recommend a gleeful response to a stranger's pain; and generally shitting on the diarist and everyone one who participated in this hate fest.

    So thanks for keeping me from doing that. Wouldn't want to risk my Mojo.

    •  I had the same thoughts. (9+ / 0-)

      It is good to be reminded that not everyone here is cut from the same cloth. It is very disappointing though that the diary is enjoying widespread approval, as are the many comments that insult or mock these three human beings who recently took their own lives. I wonder what Kos thinks when he reads things like this not on some youtube message board but right here on his site.

      •  Really is a big problem (5+ / 0-)

        Kos saved this site when he banned Truther diaries. Given the way the recommend system works, such crap was guaranteed a recommended rating, at least for awhile, which both pissed off the reality based majority and made Kos himself, and all the rest of us, look like kooks. As he as said, there are plenty of sites on the internets where you can find that stuff. This type is harder to define and ban, but I hope the Powers that Be can figure it out.

        •  I'm not even sure which side (3+ / 0-)

          of this they are on. You'd think that making light of the tragic deaths of any people, except for perhaps some well-known very bad people, would be deemed unacceptable by both the owners and the vast majority of the community members. But the latter, at least, is not the case.

    •  Thanks from me as well (6+ / 0-)

      Whenever diaries like this pop up, you see the tinfoilers come out from hibernation.  Not sure how they can even get the Internet in all of their backwoods, Y2K-style bunkers, but maybe even the tinfoilers need social interaction every once in a while.

      I mean, seriously, we're cheering the death of people?  As pointed up above, it's not we know the whole biography of any of these people (unlike some other famous politicians who remind me of Mark Twain's famous quotation...).

      Some of the people mentioned in this diary might have been terrible, but according to some sources in comments, they were not running the show by any means.

      Daily Kos has a lot of great content and users, but honestly it's diaries like this (and worse, repeated comments from other users in here - you've seen them yourself) that sometimes make me embarrassed to be a part of this place.  Cut the CT shit out and get outta here.
