From the Posting Guidelines you agreed to follow when you joined the site:
"Suicidal Tendencies - Posts that glorify suicide, questions asking ways to commit suicide or giving suicide ideas, or opinions that encourage suicide will be removed. Example: “What’s the best way to commit suicide”, “Go kill yourself.” These posts are removed and we send the user a help message informing them how to get help."
GaG is a silly site with silly people who give really fucking stupid answers. If you're having issues, it's better to talk with professionals who can actually help you. Don't you think you deserve real help instead whatever stupid we manage to scrape together?
I am not a GaG mod but I think the logic goes like this. They are trying to avoid the formation of a suicide pact. While a question about depression and suicidal thought may help people who suffered from the illness come together and form support groups it may also work the other way around. I suppose it's a sort of deniability policy for GaG
i think what u need to keep in mind is that this is not an adult website. your shitty thoughts can bleed into the young minds on here and influence in ways u can't imagine. they aren't trying to knock u down. they're trying to protect others on here, and protect u from yourself.
you can speak about these things but rather in the hope that you want to recover, not talk about the negative path you're happy to continue on.
As per posting guidelines, questions about suicide will be removed. G@G would rather you seek professional help about something as monumental as suicide is. Users can share personal experiences about the topic, of course. I know I could discuss my own thoughts on the matter, but I don't think they want anything about the subject pushed in case that sets someone over the edge or makes their feelings worse.
I get that it is sometimes helpful to talk to others, everyday people, about your concerns and struggles. It's helpful to know that you're not alone and that there are people out there that feel the same as you do. I think the site just doesn't want to push any boundaries on something like this and recommend better help than what any of us can provide.
Yes, posting questions on those subjects, topics are not allowed here. I think GAG might believe that this will promote negativity and pessimism. Those kind of questions will be removed without any delay.
