Really sad to hear about Robin Williams, it's being reported everywhere now it seems.

Yep. I'm depressed as hell now...


Yea, well, don't go killing yourself. Cowards way out and I am more pissed than sad.

You are a sad ignorant fuck. Mental illness is as real as cancer.

I have been very unfortunate to have to walk into many suicides - and had to help the family in that situation. Ignorant fuck? I think not. I see a ton of it. The swath of devastation runs very deep and lasts many years and generations.

Because your reason for deletion is the act of insulting another poster. It shouldn't really matter if you insult said poster once, twice or however many times, unless your rule says "after insulting a poster more than once in a single post, that does it".

Anyway, in the end it's all right. The guy pissed me off with his stupidity and it set off a wave of emotions in writing with me. I understand you removed it, but again.. Well.. read the above.

Which is exactly what I did. And yours was the post that got deleted as a result. How exactly to you think you've been singled out unfairly?

Blue, I gotta urge you to be less selective in removing comments. I know I'm not always being politically correct enough, but come on! Scroll down just a little and realize that if my comment is being removed, so much some others. Or, better yet, if some others aren't being removed, neither should mine.

There are four simple rules on the forum, don't put it on me if you can't follow them. Specifically, you could have found a way to express your difference of opinion without saying the original poster was "acting like an angry 15 year old," and calling him "retarded" and "a dumb fuck."

You really needed this spelled out for you? Really?

I'll post what I've wrote earlier again, but I'll try not to convey how I'm actually feeling.

Alright, here we go. xXBatmanXx, saying something as unsympathetic as that really makes you look like an angry 15 year old. You're pissed he committed suicide, and that pisses me off. I know gamers can have a reputation of being completely devoid of compassion, and although I'm always combatting that image, people like you make it damn hard to do so.

That people are driven to commit suicide is a very sorry thing. Saying that people who do so are cowards is insensitive and an insult to your own intelligence. Many would agree when I state that depression is one of the worst illnesses out there. Look it up.

If your incompassionate remark is born out of weird dogma of belief, then I can only say that I feel sorry for you. If it's not, and you're just being inhumane, then... *sigh*... what can I say?

Robin Williams was a great actor and he warmed my heart with every performance he did. I feel his loss profoundly. He must have had a troubled soul indeed. He'll be missed.

The last time I've been this upset about a tragedy striking a public figure was when Terry Pratchett announced he was diagnosed with an early onset of Alzheimer's. I don't care much about public figures but when they bring genuine laughter to the world then it hits me. Laughter is a rare commodity these days, and people who manage people to laugh with genuine happiness even rarer.

I can't even start to imagine the dark pit of pure despair and pain he had to be in to do this, depression sure is one of the worst diseases out there, it's so fucking insidious that it destroys us thoroughly from the inside and usually without anyone else noticing it before it's too late.

i won't dispute there are occasional legit reasons for suicides, but no one will ever convince me alcohol is one of them.

No one will convince you that alcoholism influences people making poor decisions? Seriously think about what you just said.

Things like this remind me how much the world can suck, one of the warmest and funniest people out there takes his own life. You'll be greatly missed Robin

I can't believe Robin Williams is gone. I haven't felt his upset about a celebrity death since Chris Farley. Robin was one of my heroes growing up, I loved all his comedies.

This sucks, I'm really upset.

It's weird, as soon as I heard this news, I had literally 10-15 scenes from his movies over the past 30 years replay in my mind. That's never happened. I haven't felt this shocked since Stevie Ray Vaughn died. He was a very special and unique actor, irreplaceable really. Such a shame.

Oh Captain, my Captain...:(

Yeah, it's hard to know what was going through his head, assuming it even was suicide and not an accident. When you're afflicted with mental illness (severe depression) paths out become impossible to see. Horrible actions invert and appear to be kindness to others. It becomes not a conscious decision, but the terminus of the disease. I've been consumed by this news since hearing of it, but I can't blame him. I have to think that nothing could have changed this. Because nothing did.

A shame too, I imagined he'd live well into his 80s like his role model Jon Winters did. Here's a clip of the two of them messing around.

Then your'e just another ignoramus. Do you believe that the mind cannot have defects as real as the rest of the body? The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It has far more ways to go wrong then any other individual organ.

Heard about Robin Williams at a dinner party tonight. So depressing. 63 is kind of young now, I had hoped he would be making movies for a while to come.

I've been watching a lot of Near Death Experience (NDE) videos on YT lately. I'm not 100% certain it's a true after-life reality but hopefully Robin is in such a heavenly place now. A recurring theme seems to be that those who suicide often have to repeat a life here until they 'get it right' but there are exceptions to that too. Either way, he'll be missed.

There's no heaven or hell, that's all jive. If there is more after this than the Hindu's are probably on the right track with a sort of reincarnation type deal. Energy is neither created or destroyed, only transferred. Out constituent atoms and molecules get re-used over and over. The most fascinating thing to me is though that we basically replace every molecule in our body about 6 times over the course over the course of an average life span. Yet, the essence of who we are remains. And we are also all unique with unique physical characteristics. Why all of that randomness and diversity if there's nothing more? Or as always, Picard said it best in Where Silence Has Lease....

Jean-Luc Picard: Considering the marvelous complexity of the universe, its clockwork perfection, its balances of this against that... matter, energy, gravitation, time, dimension, I believe that our existence must be more than either of these philosophies. That what we are goes beyond euclidean or other 'practical' measuring systems... and that our existence is part of a reality beyond what we understand now as reality.
