Wasn't the whole point of this site to "strive to keep G@G a helpful and caring community for all" ? Do they think they made a community just helpful enough to tell you about your d*ck size but not helpful enough to help people who actually need help?
I remember I gave this answer to a similar question why the site was reluctant to have suicide posts on the feed. (1) Liability - Don't know legalities of it but if you ask a suicide question and somebody says "Yes the pain is too much, you should do it", is site promoting suicide. (2) Last thing a site like this needs is to get a reputation for suicide pacts etc. (3) Trolls - "Put us out of our misery and just do it, you freak" (4) Attention Whores "I may not have done it previous 47 times but this time I mean it, message me but before 10am I have class" (5) Hoaxers - "I am bored - What will I do - I know I will post a suicide question and watch the bleeding hearts scramble to the rescue. (6) The "God" complex - "I am fantastic I talked 27 people down from suicide last year, I lost 4 but you win some. you lose some. The contact/helplines are trained to deal with this situation. (8) And most important GENUINE CRIES FOR HELP are lost in the tangle of previously listed reasons.
People on gag are not therapists or professionals. A lot of trolls are on here. People who are truly suicidal are very vulnerable. If someone started trolling and telling them to kill themselves, they might just do it. Plus, most people on here are not qualified to deal with something so serious, you're walking on thin ice when trying to interact with someone who's done with life. When the question is removed for suicidal tendencies, the asker gets a message with suicide hotlines etc, that they can call instead. Some people even come on here asking for the most efficient ways to kill themselves, and obviously these questions should not be encouraged. Even if you want to stop them. It's just safest to not let anyone on gag play therapist. Nobody here wants blood on their hands if something escalates.
Because asking people to help a suicidal person is a HUGE burden on those who aren't equipped to help someone like that. What if someone trolls and says something hurtful like"okay go kill yourself?"... do you really think that would be helpful?
They redirect you to suicide resources. I think it's a rare moment of self-awareness for this website to realize that this community (or therelackof) is not equipped to counsel someone in such a delicate and volatile state.
pshhh I made a similar post and it was removed when I called them out... this will be removed pretty soon as well. They play favorite around here and they do't strive for a damn thing, but keeping up drama.
You are right. I've thought about it and probably not to encourage other people who also have suicidal thoughts. That's the only thing i assume. Have you read book ''I was here" ? That's about a girl who commited a suicide cause she was encouraged to do so by web-site users.
because this site is full of trolls and idiots. It's a very difficult topic and the admins thought that no help at all is better than giving the wrong one.
The answer is usually the same. Get professional help, open up to your family etc. They should say that in the deletion message. Alternatively, make a system where only trusted users can see such questions.
If the person who has thoughts of suicide actually ends his/her life then investigators might look at the posts on here and potentially sue GAG because another user's answer ended up encouraging that person to suicide. GAG might end after that. So these posts are removed.
