Why are suicidal questions removed?

Especially if hotlines are completely 100% useless and removing them likely makes the individual far more unstable because they no longer have all the advice that helped to keep them sane?

  • Copied & pasted from the ubermod manual;

    'Suicidal Tendencies
    Posts that glorify suicide, questions asking ways to commit suicide or giving suicide ideas, or opinions that encourage suicide should be hidden with this reason. Example: “What’s the best way to commit suicide”, “Go kill yourself.”

  • There is also the fear of hoaxes and attention seeking - If they were left up site would be flooded with such questions - It would be impossible to separate genuine ones out and people would get fed up giving advice thus negating any positive for genuine cases - Then you would have trolls who would say "Do It".
    While they have flaws I think steering people towards helplines is the better option.
