We're mostly adults here. We can tell the difference between joking around and pushing someone to the edge for your own sick pleasure. Comments like "You aren't cutting deep enough" or "You're not suicidal, you're an attention whore" could be taken as a joke between friends but when it's said to someone who is obviously hurting or in pain it could result in death. To me it doesn't matter if it's said with malicious intent or a misguided attempt to "toughen people up". It's sick, it's wrong and it shouldn't be allowed in our community because it's not to hard to see that blood on all our hands from not enforcing healthy standards will lead to the site being shut down for a lot longer than a simple hacking attack will.

I vote yes.

Yes, definitely.

Yeah. Pretty messed up.

It should be a warning, not a perm ban. Things get said in arguments/past posts get bought up and shouldn't necessarily result in an auto-ban.

I feel there are also times it would be difficult to define/there are so many grey areas that it would be difficult for the mods to use.

I voted yes but mehs has a point about the grey areas.

I would say a warning rather than an instant ban. If someone refuses to learn, then by all means.

Does this include encouraging suicide for the terminally ill?

I'd really like to tell the entire news forum to kill themselves.

No. Youthink can't get anymore dead than it is.

I purposely phased the question to leave the most room for discussion.

Personally I feel 3 warnings with no time limit, a 30 day ban then a permanent ban is the way to go.

It will be difficult to enforce, but not impossible. Both the intent of the attacker and the effect on the target will have to be taken into account.

I don't think so.

There is a difference between someone wanting to end a terminal illness and someone who can get better being pushed to the edge.

Can anyone not see this as hyperbole?

A toxic environment is sure to attract more users.

YES.

I mean, I like to be bitchy and rude sometimes, but there is a line. You never know if someone is just looking for attention or seriously suicidal, and that's not a risk that should be taken.
7 yrs ago - Wednesday 9/16/15 - 10:58:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Should someone be banned even if they can't see what they are doing is harmful?

Are you seriously going to spam everywhere I post? You should be banned for this bullsh*t.

Haha haha. Omg. The irony.
You're the reason this country has to put directions on shampoo.

No. You are just buying into the bullying mindset, which is not surprising, because it seems to be hard for you to think for yourself.

No, One-derful is spot on. You have an inability to see how your actions affect others. Your lack of empathy is astounding. People like you are even more harmful than trolls because you don't know when to stop.

STFU. You weirdos have made me into some sort of evil person through your own collective delusion.
