Maybe in some small percentage that someone doesn't swear at another driver which may lead to some assassination of some sort out of a psychotic rage.. you never know.

19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/18/02 - 6:43:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
if so, thats kinda sad and that/those person/ppl need to get some help. or a life.
19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/20/02 - 11:30:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
i understand this question a bit. maybe some people can't afford to get help. do you know that it costs $100 an hour to go to a counselor / pshychiatrist or whatever? it's ridiculous just to have them sit their and nod and take notes. many of these are very reliable, but many are not and if there is someone out there that just needed to talk to another human being sometime to let off some steam rather than going out to get drunk or rather than sitting home alone with their sad thoughts which maybe would lead them to thinking they are totally worthless and then ending their lives, then again as much bashing that goes on here someone could just say the wrong thing and put someone over the edge. so why don't we all try to be nice to the next newbie we meet,etc... and give them the benefit of the doubt before calling them an alt and leave them alone about the faqs and just inform them nicely about how things work here. i know it gets old but hey we all were newbies once.

glitzy stole my answer...the part about the uncalled for anger on here. Maybe that's a way for the angry people to work out some of their aggressiveness, but for the people it's directed against, it's a completely different matter.

sorry about that beaker. i hope i didn't cause any hard feelings between us
19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 10/21/02 - 12:11:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Glitzy stole my answer I think it can work as a release outlet...stop you killing someone..like goddam stupid customers
19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 10/21/02 - 12:14:32 AM EST (GMT-5)

except for when guerilla, hael and captaintrips get on a thread and say "go hang yourself."
19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/30/02 - 12:31:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think its a very childish question.
19 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/30/02 - 12:36:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it 'could' in terms that it might keep someone here instead of letting them go out and get shot or hit by a car or something.
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 12/14/02 - 3:54:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
lol. Seriously folks, no.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 2/21/07 - 11:50:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Seriously, no. Is this site so overwhelmingly enlightening that it can make people not kill themselves or others?
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/22/07 - 12:06:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
I doubt it. I come here for fun.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/22/07 - 6:26:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. YT is not a counselling service. In fact I'd imagine that many journal articles make people want to kill themselves.
