Out of the Blue

MrsBlue is off to her new job today, and with no ties remaining to Disney, I no longer have a potential conflict of interest to disclaim related to reporting Disney-related game news. With their disinterest in the PC platform there was nothing to be conflicted over during that span anyway, but it makes life easier for everybody if there's no potential for that to worry about. She is back with a more traditional book publisher now, so there is no gaming connection to acknowledge going forward.

The only thing I'd add is that anyone considering suicide to the point of going through with it probably isn't in a state where they can logically choose the method that is best for society as a whole.

Exactly, which is why complaining about someone else's "inconvenience" by the deceased's choice of how it was done seems so petty and classless.

This. When someone decides to do it, no matter how or where, they are now in such a mentality that they no longer care about anything, they just snap and do it, period. Deep depressions, worse if associated with incurable physical illnesses, often make a person simply no longer be aware of anything the moment before he or she does it. They no longer have a grip on themselves, they simply do it to end the pain, taxpayer's money be damned.

The truly sad and horrific thing is that society at large still treats suicide as a fucking taboo and putting the blame of it entirely on the one doing it when they should instead be looking for the warning signs and getting them to help ASAP if it's a depression or just giving them comfort that whatever they do they will always be loved if it's a physical illness that's beyond any cure.
