I am very sorry for this question : ( Having read so many suicidal posts on here these years, this question suddenly comes to my mind today--would you cry if one of your GAGer friends suddenly dies? Why?
I am asking also because I saw a post about a GAGer who said he cried when he heard that one of his GAGer friends is suffering from cancer : (
Never really thought about it - I don't mean to offend but to me you are like characters on a website rather than flesh and blood - I have got to know some and they have become more human to me so I suppose I would be upset if anything happened to them.
Crying I'm not certain. But touched, of course. They are people and if someone you talk to really frequently passes away, that can't leave you indifferent. And indeed if a friend would tell me he or she had cancer I would be impressed by the situation. And, depending on how bad he or she would be feeling, I'd try to be there for the person.
I wouldn't know nor would anyone if it happened to me. A few years ago, GaG, if notified would keep a user's account open in the event of death so comments/posts could be made or read. I don't even know if it's still a practice or if it's ever been done but to honest answer the question, I'd be upset.
It would depend on how close I am to them. There are three people on here who I talk to regularly and I would definitely be upset and cry if something were to happen to any of them. Of course I get sad when I hear about anyone dying, but if I'm close to that person, then naturally I get more upset about it.
