And one more thing...
You know, cutting through all the words, all the emotion (mine and others)...my message is really pretty basic, but perhaps it's not clear:
At the end of the day, life is the single most precious thing humans have. It should be celebrated, always. Death is permanent, and never should be considered an acceptable alternative to life.

You can't talk about gangsters this way. They killed him for sure.
“When there is promotion and marketing and in some ways acceptance, yeah, it does drive people to reach out.”
I have personally experienced suicide (4) times in my life...the OTHER side of suicide! The survivor's side.
she's going to remember that moment, and she's going to resent and hate him for it. When she stands in front of the mirror
Suicide is for SELFISH COWARDS!
Perhaps you could call it a deterrent
In other words she will be mature enough to accept thats it not all about her selfish needs.
it is pretty amazing that we need to emphasize the banal - yet ultra important - fact that suicide causes harm to the people who were personally attached to you.
And as the survivor you react with hostility because you are left with unanswered questions, as if the survivor has more claim on an autonomous human beings will. You sir are a bully if you think that calling the victim a coward will somehow reduce the incidence of suicide or make the survivors feel better.
As someone who studies the brain, and can pinpoint which parts of the brain mediate attachment relations, it is a cruel thing to commit suicide and leave those who are attached to you to suffer with meaning of your action.
it is obviously this: you will be hurting the people around you.
This is co-dependence.Responsibility exists in me to those who are attached to me; and the same applies to them vis-a-vis me
And what about striving to live with reference to the significance of your existence to other people i.e. attachment relations?
its focus on what it fears and finds painful.
Satanism is a mental virus. Basically any conceptual system which focuses on 'rebellion' will likely hurt the rebelling mind in the end,
particularly the 'self-focused' spirituality which puts feelings above reasoning, are definitely being led astray by new age fantasies like "you create your own reality"
there is a 'responsibility' of celebrities contemplating suicide to the people who see them as role models.
Painful yes. Do you think the person committing suicide in their despair sets out to be cruel to the survivor?
I'm unsure what you mean; co dependence is viewed in a negative light by some.
