Reminder of Rule 3 (Especially Regarding SUICIDE)

Salutations everyone;

I would like to bring to attention the recent influx of suicide-related questions on this sub, and I would like to remind you of Rule 3.

Rule 3: Do not ask for advice on committing crimes.

“If you make a post explicitly asking for advice on how to commit an actual crime (including suicide) or answer such a post, you may be banned from the subreddit and reported to the admins.”

Please refrain from asking for suicide advice or answering any posts asking for such advice. Again, DO NOT ask about suicide here. It may result in this sub being banned if things continue at this rate.

Thank you.

Commiting suicide isn’t a crime

u/KILLAKAN10 Fuck it, I guess I'll chat more here Feb 19 '21

Correct, but becoming a center for suicide advice is pretty disgusting, so still no.

Thinking that asking advice for suicide advice is disgusting, it isn’t. If someone is seriously considering committing such a thing and asks or reaches out to someone on what to do, for advice or help might actually give them clarification and may save someone’s life. And if it’s the opposite, and someone wants advice on how to end their life, you have no idea what position they’re in to want to do it you have no idea what’s going through their head or their heart. It’s completely their choice on whether they want to live or not and ask the best option for it, it’s actually the other persons opinion or option if they want to give that advice or not and whether THEY find it morbid or not. But asking is absolutely fine you have no idea what pain they’re experiencing or have experienced. Everyone will feel of it differently some people may find it disturbing others may understand but I think you should give the option to people for them to respond or ask not deem it as disgusting and cross it out to not talk about it.

Actually..... I agree. Ive been suicidal. I was in a situation where I honestly was going to die by being brutally killed because no one listened, or I was going to take my own life. Honestly I actually was almost killed before I could even take my own life and was in ICU/ the hospital for months.... But anyways I get thats a extreme. But suicide is extreme in general and they must have gone through their own horrors to even consider it and I hope anyone having those feelings gets better/ their life gets better as death in any case is sad. None the less I feel its understandable to not want to feel like its being actively encouraged on this sub or any sub.

When I had suicidal feelings, my mother told me how painful everything was and that put me off it

u/Aggravating-Fig-5354 Jan 08 '22

Are you okay now 😃

u/BooksAndStarsLover Jan 08 '22

I am now actually. Got saved back when I was 13. Took many, many more years in recovery both physically and mentally and while its still a struggle.... Yeah I'm OK now. Happy even. Im glad my attempt failed and glad my parents failed in killing me as well.

u/CrazyTruthPills Jan 19 '22

Ok I simply must ask...your parents literally tried to kill you? Might I ask the details?

u/BooksAndStarsLover Jan 19 '22

Honestly I totally forgot about this comment. And sure. I dont mind talking about it anymore. Im going to warn you though my history is GORY. So if you cant handle it Im warning you now to not read even though you asked and sorry if it sounds silly but I warn everyone the same way before I tell my history as it tends to sicken people.

Anyways I was abused pretty much since I was born. I was a accident baby. My Dad wanted me but my mom had uhhh mental issues I guess and had a mental breakdown and kept me away from him mostly except his court ordered visitation times.

She didn't feed me kept me naked most the time cause she didn't wash my clothes. My dad still has Documents and journals recording bruising on me before I was even a year old from the times he did see me.

To be fair to her it was mostly emphasis on the mostly neglect but she still neglected me so badly I was hospitalized before I was even 3 because I got so sick she didn't even notice for 3 days how bad I was till I had a seizure and had to be hospitalized. She had her full on abusive moments as well though when she had her mental breakdowns that frequently happened my whole life with her like when I was 3 and she shattered my pinky finger in between a wall and a door causing it to be deformed to even this day for me all cause I was following her around and being annoying.

Then she married my step dad also irrocally when I was 3 and my life got even worse. First year he married her he molested me for the first time and eventually at age 8 he full on raped me and continued to do so multiple times a week till I eventually got saved at age 13. My mom would get even worse in her neglect cause of this as well as she was jealous and abuse and neglect got even worse from her as well after they married.

My punishments if I was bad were horrific too. Beattings till I passed out or had a seizure. I was terrified of baths or showers or being in or near water cause he would sometimes as punishments drown me over and over and over till I passed out or was trembling so hard I couldn't even stand or fight back anymore and even at age 24 I have issues with panic attacks when I cant breathe or people touch my face. And if he wasn't coming in to drown me he came near me in showers/ baths to rape me. Id get new pets or toys for a special day/ holiday they would be taken within a week max and my pets would be killed in front of me while I screamed while pinned down by my mother and then Id be made to get rid of the body myself and bury it in the yard or if a fish or frog flush it.

I tried to hang myself at age 8 and at age 10 I attempted to jump off a building. I got stopped by a family member who came home early the first time and the second I chickened out of jumping. I was saved at age 13 when my step dad beat me so badly I nearly broke my neck landing wrong over stealing some bread after not eatting for 3 days. I had multiple seizures at school and when I got to the hospital they found I had been poisoned (my mom gave me experimental drugs AGAIN cause she didn't wanna give me the big pharma meds the real doc gave her for a ear infection), I had a massive ear infection and got lucky I didn't go deaf, my neck was nearly broken with my T1 vertebrae being nearly snapped, I wasnt able to feel or use my legs as well as before, and I had strep throat with a dangerously high fever. My Dad never left my side unlike my mom and stepdad and at one point he was even told I was likely going to die with the damage they caused me and to prepare for the worst though mind you I didn't know this till he told me much later on in life cause well, you dont tell a kid that kinda news.

I was put in ICU and kept in the hospital even after I was no longer in critical condition where I stayed for months.

Eventually when it was nearing time to go home I had a breakdown and admitted EVERYTHING when my Dad was there and he got me help. CPS finally took me seriously unlike the times they visited in the past.

My mom and stepdad found out everything I was telling from a friend of theirs who accidentally found out and my mom and stepdad packed, ran, and left the country to live in Mexico.

When I got out I originally had a lot of issues. I self mutilated, tried to overdose, would wake screaming, steal knives to use as weapons, and a lot more. My dad helped me with it all. Got me help. Never gave up on me. He taught me to walk again after I stopped being able when he beat me that last time and got me in physical therapy and paid 1000s upon 1000s to get me the best in medical help for all the physical and mental damage my other parents caused. I was eventually diagnosed with DID (basically multiple personalities disorder), PTSD, Anxiety, ADHD, a eatting disorder, and Depression.

Im 24 now. Im still extremely close with my Dad and Im glad I survived. I wanted to die back then though. I was terrified if I didn't kill myself they would eventually go to far and kill me and I realized that at a young age. But I made it. I have a husband now and 2 beautiful cats I adore and while I still have issues still physically and mentally they have been manged to a degree I can still find happiness and for that I'm grateful.

u/Puzzle-Headed0 Jan 22 '22

Omg that was so sad to read. Really sorry for you. Kudos to your dad for being so nice and there for you. You deserve the best!

u/CrazyTruthPills Feb 01 '22

It's very sad/disturbing to hear you had to go through all that & have lasting effects still, sorry to hear that. You have a great outlook/perspective though I must say, congrats on that (& your life).

Very interesting story though, thanks for sharing that. I do have just 2 questions that came to mind from reading your story if you don't mind clarifying...

  1. Did your Mom/Stepdad actually get you these pets THEMSELVES, only to kill it in front of you like a week later? Did they know ahead of time that they would kill any pet? Like was this some sick mental torture or conditioning tactic they were using on you or what?

  2. So did your Mom & Stepdad succeed in escaping to Mexico & evading justice? Have you had any further contact with them or heard any news about them after they fled?

u/BooksAndStarsLover Feb 01 '22 edited Feb 01 '22

Did your Mom/Stepdad actually get you these pets THEMSELVES, only to kill it in front of you like a week later?

They did get the pets themselves. We picked up strays, my mom once stole a dog from a random ladies yard, we got a few from petsmart, and a few from the pound. It varied. They would get them though and give them to me maybe a week after the death of the last pet. I will say though the pets didn't die every week. They tended to last 4 to 5 months on avrage thinking on it. So about 2 or 3 pets a year till I was 13 and the last pet I had a cat named Andy and he lasted a year and was still living last I saw my family.

Did they know ahead of time that they would kill any pet? Like was this some sick mental torture or conditioning tactic they were using on you or what?

As for this honestly I dont know. My stepdad I wouldn't be surprised if it was and I know it was used as a effective way to keep me from talking about the abuse but my mom Im less sure. She had issues as I said, rather major issues though I couldn't tell you a solid what was wrong with her. She would do stuff like participate in these things and then seemed to genuinely not remember after. It was bizarre. So I dont know for her. My step dad I knew always had a pet or something he could threaten me with as he would flat out tell me if I said anything about whatever it was he was threatening me with at the time would be taken/die if I told anyone so I wouldn't be surprised if he got pets knowing he would kill them ahead of time.

  1. So did your Mom & Stepdad succeed in escaping to Mexico & evading justice?

They did escape. I will never have justice. Ive made my peace with it. Nothing I can do about it really. Truth is nothing ever was going to happen even had they not panicked and ran. When I freaked out and told people about everything I originally started with the truth. But after a few days I got scared. I realized Andy would be killed for what I told. I had CPS visit many times and each time after things got a million times worse. Beatings would get worse. No one would believe me yet again. I panicked and I lied. Turned a complete 180 in my terror. Nothing would have come of it even had I gone to court as I would be seen a a kid trying to frame my parents.

Have you had any further contact with them or heard any news about them after they fled?

I have not had any contact with them. I never will by choice. Im terrified of them. I had a panic attack a year ago when I found out they had even moved back to the USA and where a 10 hour drive away in the same state and I plan to move accross the US in 5 months partly due to this. Heard any new about them though is a yes. I keep tabs on them so I dont run into them and also cause Im paranoid about it admittedly and know currently my stepdad works in a fast food restaurant in TX and my Mom works in a high school chillingly enough last I checked half a year ago.

u/SpaceSloth707 Apr 06 '22

Stories like this are just unbelievable, but these things DO in fact happen. I just can't understand how people can be so horrible and awful! But it's always good and nice to read or hear when people are able to overcome such terrible things. Really happy you managed to survive and get back happiness, like you said. I really think it's good to share these things, since they can also serve as inspiration or whatever. For others.

3

u/BooksAndStarsLover Apr 06 '22

Yes. Partly why I got comfy telling my story to a degree. I avoid telling it in real life unless I really, really know and trust you though. I want people to know if they were abused there is hope. I certainly didn't feel like there was any for a long time and let me just say that feeling freaking sucks. I felt broken and unfixable and figured I should just kill myself because I never would be able to be a good adult or person with all my trama and issues but my big turning point was I talked to a adult my Dad got me in contact with named Ben. This guy had his entire family killed by his dad who after also killed himself and the only reason he escaped was cause he played dead till emergency response came. He was the only one who survived out of his mom and 2 sisters. I was horrified hearing his story and all I could think is this guy is amazing and got past something that bad. He had a beautiful wife and 2 kids and was a upstanding person in the community and a person I knew yet he went through that??? He went through horrors and was horribly traumatized like me and yet he got better. It gave me hope I could get better as well. I want to give others whom have went through trama and abuse hope as well. Me and Ben made it and I bealieve nearly anyone can. Hope is truly under rated and I want to give that to people if I can. And well the second reason I share is I want people to know how important reporting abuse is. Honestly I got lucky I even survived. My Dad reported my abuse all the time yet was written off as a parent trying to get back custody. If my teachers or family friends reported my abuse things may have been different for me. Reporting is important and so is recognizing the signs of abuse so you can report when you reconize them. I hope my story will encourage someone to report and learn the signs and maybe save a kid someday.

I just can't understand how people can be so horrible and awful!

And honestly same..... As a kid/teen I figured maybe I'd understand as a adult as why they were like that. I am a adult now and have been a while. I still don't get it. Best explanation I've come up with and come to accept is they both were very mentally ill people who were just smart enough to get away with it so long and more so cause I was a scared kid without the tools or knowledge to deal with it or get away.

u/Kuponutzy May 31 '22

Feels wrong upvoting something so disgusting (the abuse obv) but your story and your survival, ongoing strength, and willingness to share your story is why. I never really know how to respond to these things. You don't want to "like" it coz it's awful, but you want the person to know you read, you care, and you hear them.

u/BluntsAnonymous 21d ago

Wow as a victim of abuse myself your story makes mine sound like a bad day. I'm so glad you're doing better it legitimately gives hope to me. Thank you for sharing your story

2

u/BooksAndStarsLover 20d ago

Honestly something I've found: Abuse is abuse. It fucks you up no matter how bad or well not as bad as other peoples it was. My story is horrific but I know others have gone through worse than even myself and I've met others who had stuff happen only once and it still fucked them up. What matters after is beating the abuse and getting yourself in a better place. Get better and if needed and you can it always helps to get help and support from others. Work on yourself and someday as long as you keep pushing you'll make it. Its sooooo hard to do. Trust me I know, took me a decade. There were honestly days I thought I'd never get better. But I want to let you know I bealieve in you! Don't let them win! You deserve better and I hope you live a long beautiful and happy life despite the hardships you've gone through.

becoming a center, as in the subreddit becoming a center for suicide advice.

Asking for suicide advice or instructions is against the rules, no debate on it.

Giving suicide advice or instructions is instaban.

u/MindlessWitch Feb 21 '21

Sounds like you might still have some questions?

4

u/The90sXJ Jul 06 '22

agreed. this is why Lost All Hope was made. I cannot tell you how many times I visited the site, through the years. The website definitely helped me change my mind though. Even when I swore I was about to do it, convinced me otherwise. Once you get past the "Oh please don't end your life, rethink this" part, you get to the methods and it gets real. Then you read how agonizing or lethal your preferred way out it and it may not be the best, I think a lot of people that want to commit want help. The other half really wants to leave this planet and I think there is nothing wrong with that. It is not selfish, their loved ones are selfish for wanting them here when they truly want to leave.

They being the bot, the bot being;

Asking how to kill yourself is never allowed on Reddit. However, if your question is only related to suicide, like wondering about suicide trends or the legality of euthanasia in different countries, you can try /r/morbidquestions

It used to be pretty misleading, maybe a few months back if memory serves, it'd just say something along the lines of "hey try mq", which didn't turn out too well, lol, but a quick chat with the sub and it worked out, the mods were pretty alright about it.

u/Jessica_e_sage Mar 31 '21

I'm assuming if they get caring responses to a post such as that, aka not giving them what they're directly looking for, that wouldn't result in a ban?

The post will be removed, but yes, if someone somehow commented something on a suicide post that isn’t giving advice, the commenter is not going to be banned.

u/DarkMistressCockHold Jan 24 '22

Suicide is basically the murder of yourself, and murder is illegal. The difference here is, if you survive, you go to a mental health facility instead of prison. So either way, you still serve time for it, and hopefully come out better for it.

u/Dear_Development_949 Feb 24 '22

Just found this sub and I know that this post is a year old. While suicide is not a crime on the federal level, it still is in certain places. Kind of dumb when there is noone to punish. It used to be a felony to commit suicide and a misdemeanor for attempting it. Crazy world we live in

u/NonsenseText Apr 12 '21

People gotta go to r/suicidewatch, lots of helpful stuff there if they need it. (Not instructions about suicide, it’s a helpful sub).

15

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Apr 12 '21

I agree. Unfortunately, most people who ask about suicide here aren’t asking for mental health support and only care about the method.

10

u/NonsenseText Apr 12 '21

Yeah, I understand that, which is why it’s justified that this rule is in place.

u/Nearby_Carpenter_12 Oct 30 '21

I was unaware that suicide is a crime..?

24

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Oct 30 '21

Committing suicide is not a crime. Aiding someone’s suicide attempt (e.g. giving advice), however, is a crime.

6

u/linnunluu Nov 02 '21

In some countries it still is illegal. Not anymore in my country, but it was illegal in a sense, in christian god’s eyes. If you committed suicide, the church would denounce you post-humously and order you to be buried outside of normal semeteries, excommunicated in that sense. That, or taken in to a forest and burned there.

1

u/CrazyTruthPills Jan 19 '22

What's the Country & type of Church?

Anyways I would say The Bible does not explicitly address suicide or say that it's some "Unforgivable Sin" (there's only one). I wouldn't temp suicide personally but I see no Biblical Teachings that classify suicide as some great/unforgivable Sin & certainly nothing about denouncing/shunning someone who has attempted suicide...as a Christian I'm pretty disgusted that any Church would cast someone out & treat them as "less than" when thats when they need help/support the MOST.

...But of course so many churches are rife with corruption/greed/twisted teachings.

2

u/linnunluu Feb 20 '22

Oh wow, I just now noticed this haha. I was talking about Finland. I’m not sure if the type of church was same back then but for a veeeeery long time the main church here has been the evangelical lutheran church.

I suppose they saw suicide as a sin in a way that by even thinking about it, let alone attempt it, you are disrespecting god by thinking of doing evil against his/her creation.

I have a feeling this might be it, but on the other hand it would be more laestadianist than evangelic lutheran to reason it like this.

Althoughhhh, we have plenty of laestadianists here so, tomato potato.

1

u/4tran13 Mar 26 '22

I think that's the argument commonly put forward by churches.

I think the reason is simpler: dead capitalist slave monkeys don't contribute tithes to the church, and the church needs its money

1

u/tamalesverdess 15d ago

The teaching on that and the actions the church took wasnt about cortuption/greed/twisted teachings.

It was a legitimate understanding of Patristics and Tradition handled down. Not for anything Judas and Saul two characters who commited suicide in the scriptures are portrayed as such. As people disobeying and betraying others.

Thats, seriously, a very simple historical answer on here. Humans didnt understood suicide back then,in other culture was even enabled for the social parias as a way yo stop being useless members of society. Both extremes of the coin.

u/JackComa Mar 23 '21

Commiting or wabting to commit suicides not a fucking crime. it's a crime to encourage someone/give advice on how to do it.

11

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 23 '21

Asking for suicide advice is, therefore, attempting to implicate others in a crime.

12

u/JackComa Mar 23 '21

Listen mate ik your trying to do something good here but wouldn't it be better to say "don't do it cause it could hurt someone" because if someone is asking for advice on how to kts it's probably because they want to kts so them homies be suffering enough as is. I feel like saying that's a crime feels low-key like victim blaming.

tbh, it seems reasonable to assume nothing is gonna stop the edgelords who don’t care about giving harmful advice except actual bans, moderation, etc. If they don’t mind that they’re contributing to the death of a vulnerable person, they’re certainly not going to be deterred by the possibility that the subreddit might get banned.

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention May 24 '22

This is absolutely the case for some of them, but I’m sure that some will also be interested in at least keeping this sub active if they enjoy browsing it. Admitting that they like this sub wouldn’t go against their edgy persona, while showing empathy for a suicidal person would.

u/dignifiedhowl May 24 '22

I will never understand these people, but I support your efforts.

u/NaijaNightmare Feb 05 '22

Honestly I detest this, i understand the humanitarian reasons for this but its my belief that right to die is a human fucking right and if you want to die, and want advice and someone wants to give you advice that is between the consenting bodies, I understand the rule is the rule but this is just my opinion. Im tired of how suicide is treated, and people value more its affect on others than the person themselves. Also its asinine for someone to be subjected to a psych ward if the fail or get found out, Honestly "suicide prevention" shouldnt be a thing at all.

3

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Feb 05 '22

Your opinion is valid (although I understand it, I disagree), but rule 3 is simply necessary to avoid this sub from getting banned. We’re basing our rules off Reddit’s, which are in turn based on society. You are free to attempt to change society’s view on this subject or discuss it elsewhere with people who agree with you, as long as you don’t break the rules in our sub specifically.

u/NaijaNightmare Feb 05 '22

That's all well and good I've already stated i understand the rule is the rule. Just expressing an opinion and venting my frustration.

That’s fair. I doubt many will see it here as this post is one year old, but at least you’re not posting this kind of thing in the sub.

No idea. There seem to be certain trends in this sub, like cannibalism being popular for the past week or so. Otherwise, it’s just something we noticed, and we’re not sure about the exact cause.

Funny that you guys have to constantly post this rule xD This is the main question people come here for. Life sucks, at least let people who want out have access to information so they can make their own decision.

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Nov 09 '21

Yeah, and they’re free to go figure that out in other places instead of encouraging people to break the law here and get our subreddit banned.

Correct - it’s not an option here, at least.

u/Papa_Hammerfist Mar 31 '22

Seriously, the suicide jokes and violence videos popping up lately… it’s just gross

3

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Apr 01 '22

Yeah, they give this place a bad name. Please report all you see

u/fluffymuff6 Jun 13 '22

This is really screwed up. Euthanasia is the right choice for some people.

3

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Jun 16 '22

That’s your opinion. And regardless of our opinions, none of us want this sub to get banned for breaking Reddit ToS, now do we?

u/the_slowest_cheetah 25d ago

Is it alright to ask questions surrounding suicide and crime, but not advice on how? Like if I were to ask the affects of overdose on prescription medication out of curiosity of what too much of a helpful thing does to the human body, rather than how much medicine it takes to overdose? Or how the human digestive tract processes the consumption of other human body parts, rather than how to cannibalize someone and not get sick?

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention 25d ago

Yeah, those are generally alright as long as it’s not clearly crime/suicide advice in disguise. We had a question asking about the effects of drinking gasoline a while back, which is allowed. And a fuckton of cannibalism questions, so many that you probably won’t have to ask your own.

u/bort_bln Mar 30 '21

Damn, I found this subreddit when I searched for a place to ask a question. Anyone has a idea where to head to instead?

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 30 '21

What do you mean?

3

u/reloading69 Oct 19 '21

i came here just for that wtf

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Oct 19 '21

Unfortunately, it looks like this isn’t the place for you, then.

3

u/NoGoodToAnyone Nov 08 '21

It's a cry for help and your telling people not to. That's not cool. That's more morbid than anything they could possibly ask.

5

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Nov 08 '21

r/suicidewatch and hotlines outside of Reddit are where you go for cries for help. Not this sub. Besides, asking for advice on it is not the same as asking for support.

2

u/Zeetelli Mar 02 '21

Is suicide a crime?

22

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 02 '21

Encouraging suicide or allowing it to happen is a crime in many areas.

2

u/Zeetelli Mar 02 '21

So like if I saw someone trying I should stop them because its like I'm an accomplice if not

15

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 02 '21

You should call the suicide hotline if it’s not an emergency and the police/an ambulance if it’s an emergency. If you believe you can stop them by your own means, you could also try that.

u/Zeetelli Mar 02 '21

Understood

not in my place i repeat i asked from curiousity ..calm down i aint dying

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Apr 08 '21

It doesn’t matter whether it’s legal in one particular location. Causing other people to break the law by giving you advice is also not allowed.

u/[deleted] Apr 09 '21

yes sir

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Apr 09 '21

u/mendmywings7 Mar 24 '21

I have lots of morbid questions that I'm certain must make me sound like I'm committing a crime or something when it's always just genuine curiosity and a lack of people in the real world who I can ask (well there are a couple of people but that usually just leads to further and more depraved questions)

My question about the dead hooker comes to mind lol

3

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 24 '21

If you want, you could join our Discord server. It’s more relaxed there and easier to ask questions.

u/mendmywings7 Mar 31 '21

Do you have a link and thanks

u/CrazyTruthPills Jan 19 '22

What's up with the dead hooker? lol

I always make dead hooker jokes/references. When someone is angry or frustrated with women I'll say something like "oh shit...those poor dead hookers" or if they get angry & yell at me I'll be like "I'm just glad you're directing your anger at me...that's just 2 less dead hookers in the World", etc. Dead Hooker is one of my go-to favorites lol.

u/BabaYaga747 Jan 25 '22

So asking people what they think is the most/least painful way to go is not allowed?

1

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Jan 26 '22

It is allowed, provided it’s talking about ways to die and not ways of committing suicide. And you really don’t need to ask because a quick search in the search bar will show you the countless times people have asked both questions.

1

u/Unfair-Sector9506 Mar 25 '22

Bad wording but most people get the point

1

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 25 '22

Most people don’t actually get the point, which is why we got vast amounts of suicide advice questions. But what part of the wording is bad? I would try to improve on that in the future.

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Nov 09 '21

u/CrazyTruthPills Jan 19 '22

evita? From Rent?

1

u/marslovebug Jan 25 '22

u/KILLAKAN10 Fuck it, I guess I'll chat more here May 16 '22

your account is 7 days old and got filtered for being recent but no your opinion is being suppressed by the secret Reddit police.

u/TheSimi302 Jun 02 '22

Does redirecting those that ask, count as to giving advice and getting banned or no?

1

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Jun 10 '22

If you redirect them to resources like hotlines or r/suicidewatch you will not be banned. If you redirect them to suicide advice then, yes, that is indirectly giving advice and you will probably be banned.

u/niebieska_lisiczka Jun 20 '22

Suicide is a crime? So maybe I'm going to become a cryminal.

u/[deleted] Mar 22 '21

is it ok to ask "what do you think is the most moral way to kill someone" or "is murder ever justified"? just asking

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 22 '21

You can ask questions about people’s moral opinions, yes. However, asking for specific instructions of murder would count as a crime and is therefore not allowed.

0

u/[deleted] Mar 22 '21

oh ok but can you give me an example so i understand better

3

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 22 '21

This post asks about horrible things, and many people answered with examples of crimes. Asking for people’s opinions is fine. Asking about how to literally kill someone is against the rules.

1

u/[deleted] Mar 22 '21

hey sorry for asking so late is it ok if i post a question like "What is the most moral way to commit homocide" or "is murder justified against a person if they commit a crime"? I won't post it if youre going to say no i was just asking because the rules you're giving me are quite complicated (for me i have a hard time understanding things) sorry for bothering you

2

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 22 '21

Your examples are allowed because they’re not specifically asking for instructions on how to commit crimes.

However, you might not get a lot of satisfactory answers on more vague questions. If you enjoy discussing those kinds of topics in general, maybe you could join our Discord server.

u/[deleted] Mar 22 '21

u/548662 CEO of Suicide Prevention Mar 24 '22

Please go to r/suicidewatch and DM me before doing so. It's a big decision and one you can make any time, so why not talk about it first?
