The very fact that people egged him on during that is fucking pathetic. You would think that even teenagers, when seeing that someone was GROSSLY endagering their life, would try to stop that. But I am, as usual, proved wrong in such matters...heh, I'm only 20, why listen to me and my views?

Regardless....I must commend the efforts of those people who tried to stop "ripper" from ODing, and who tried to get him to call the police and Poison Control Center.

It is regrettable, indeed a tragedy, for this to have happened....but perhaps this will give more people a clue regarding the real world that kids grow up in these days.

Dumb? Yep, definately. Still tragic though. He was someone's son and brother. I hope the little shits that were egging him on in the chatroom are haunted by this for the rest of their lives.

I'd like to wish that as well, but the very fact that they egged him on shows that they won't regret or be haunted by this...the ones that tried to stop it may, and it may teach them a valuable lesson...but the rest....don't think so

Hopefully Karma will rear it's indifferent head and strike those who thought this was funny and egged him on... immature people always feel the need to be in the spotlight and to garner all the attention... maybe this story will wake a few of them up to reality.

From scanning the log a few times I see a total of one person egging him on, and everyone else telling him to stop being so stupid and call the police / the hospital / poison control.

In any case, dying from a self-inflicted overdose is hardly a new phenomenon, and he has absolutely no-one to blame but himself.

"Everquest killed my son".
"IRC killed my son".
"Computer game violence killed my son".

Bullshit. Your SON killed your son.

Sorry if that's overly harsh, I can't find a cigarette ANYWHERE.
