    I just talked to his mom and dad on skype. Rodney's in the hospital, recovering after an overdose. He's deeply troubled, and, if conscious, probably depressed that he didn't die. I know he's a troll, but maybe if he comes back we could stand to be less supportive of his attempts at his own life.
    He tried to contact me on skype the night he did it. I didn't answer because it was around 8 and I felt sick so I needed to sleep. I don't feel responsible for his actions, but I do feel that if I had deigned to talk to him he may not have tried doing anything. I don't know, this is just crazy. All of this is too much.

    Not your responsibility, his actions only show me how selfish he is towards his parents.

    It's not your fault, but I'm sure it'll somehow be my fault again.

    But most states (assuming he's in the states) require a minimum of 30 days of psychiatric evaluation after a suicide attempt so maybe he'll finally start getting the help he needs.

    That's some hardcore trolling action right there.

    I find myself conflicted between this being some of the finest trolling efforts I've ever witnessed, and an actual incident involving the potential loss of human life.

    Getting his parents in on it, that's low.

    Surely, you jest. We all know that trolls are asexually reproduced from the /b/owels of 4chan and ytmnd.


    And good god man, why in the hell would you give your Skype info to HWLFP, if what you say is even true? Is this your attempt at trolling TA?

    He wanted to talk to me on skype so I gave him my info. I don't see the problem.

    Because something like this might happen. Or some other ridiculous ruse at your expense.

    Trolling or not, my answer remains the same.

    I really feel for the guy. Clearly he's suffering and being a jerk online was no coincidence. I'm glad he's alive and hope you're right about him getting help now.
    BTW Zanza, you might want to be more politik about what you post. Under Australian law, people can be charged for bullying that results in suicide and you were pretty fucking nasty.

    Private forum outside of Australia, can't be picked up on it and besides its a discouraging statement about his actions so really you wasted time even putting that in.

    Not as much of a waste of time as appealing to your compassion, I suppose.

    Is there even any evidence to clearly indicate that this isn't an elaborate troll?

    Had a mate who felt responsible because a girl committed suicide and only used to talk to him. I told him it wasn't his fault, he did all he could do anyway, he told her to seek help, told the parents of the situation I mean what more can you want really? Some of my mates were thinking ooh that's a bit harsh man, but I simply told them what I tell you know. Suicide is never the answer, its a cowardice and selfish thing to do, I'll never have compassion for someone who does it and I'll have even less for someone who fails at it.
