It's like the 2nd or 3rd one taken down from my experience, doesn't make much sense to me.
Why do questions related to suicide get taken down?

I think it's pathetic how they're taken down. I really wanna help someone and then the mods take it down. Why mods?6
Suicide is a very sensitive topic that should be handled by trained professionals. This is why posts can be removed for that reason, as you can see in our posting guidelines here. http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/posts#9
When the post is removed, the user is sent a help message with links to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and the phone number where they can reach out to get help.2
Admins think its triggering or some shit.
I think people should be able to help others if they post something like that on here.1
Makes sense to me. People can be dicks, and if someone is having a real problem, the last thing they need is some insensitive comment or some trolling asshole to push them over the edge. They need to speak to someone trained in dealing with desperate people, not an internet QA forum with dumb people.1

Could it be against the rules.0
I reported the last one, it was 30min ago maybe? I lose track of time pretty easily
but come to think about it there are a lot of trolls on this site and the people with suicidal tendencies are vulnerable, they need real help from people who actually care about them and not everyone on here is nice... 😕0

There is a number of reasons not to do it
(1) The question is removed and links to help sites are given
(2) If question left up and people encourage people to do it, is site liable?
(3) Could suicide pacts develop?
(4) Trolls - Do it loser
(5) Attention seekers and hoaxes - The genuine cries for help would be swamped
(6) The God complex - Talk to me, I have no experience or training to deal in a situation like this
(7) Linked to 5, if too many appear we get fed up and lose our compassion0
If I remembered correctly it is against the policies and terms of this website. They don't want any "legal" liabilities associated with it in case someone did take their own life for real and then relatives, family or even friends of the suicide victim turns around and hold the website accountable for being involved and facilitating a suicide and caused it to happen for real. I think it's like that in many websites since there are laws and regulations against it or something.0
Their much better off not asking here since theirs a lot of trolls and we're not trained therapists just random people.0
