I've been reading the posts on the site and noticed something that is different from most other internet sites I visit: posts are insightful, articulate, and there is a civility in the exchange of thoughts and ideas.

I assume the correlation is to the overarching topic (I might be mistaken.) But, I wonder, is there potentially causation? And, if so, which is the independent variable?

Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for making this little corner of the net a little more enjoyable than most.

This site deals with a sensitive topic. Perhaps that is why people here at least attempt to articulate well their thoughts.

We respect the deeply personal nature of the problems expressed here, and understand the inanity of trying to fix other people's personal, existential shit.

The only other thing to do is listen and talk as equals. Something most are too uncomfortable, or otherwise unwilling, to do.

It makes me think that the world would be a better place if more people seriously considered suicide. Ironic, eh? But then again, if more people considered it, then the world would be better, which would lead to less people considering it. Hmmm. Now that seems like something out of a Joseph Heller novel or MC Escher drawing.....

That's a good point. Personally, my reason for wanting self-deliverance is serious chronic health issues. Before I became ill, my life was great. So I have to admit that I don't have much common ground with people who want to go due to "depression" (which I realize is a problematic word). But despite not really understanding them, I can accept that their pain is real and just as severe as my own, just in a different way.

I used to really believe in the power of empathy. I used to believe that if everyone just tried hard enough to understand each other, humanity could create a better world. But not anymore. Now I realize that we can never know what it's like to be another person.

G.I. Gurdjieff was a spiritual teacher from the early 20th century. He had an interesting idea. He believed that the only thing that could save humanity would be if everyone "grew" an extra "organ" that would constantly tell us, "You are going to die someday. You are going to die someday." He felt that accepting the inevitability of death was the only solution for creating awakened humans.

Interesting concept to keep the focus on the present and what we know we can affect.

I think that religions focusing on the afterlife are counterproductive to a meaningful life and healthy society.

Well, you have to be a heartless monster knowing that a 4/5 here is suffering and wants to kill themselves. Also, find this forum is very difficult, I don't think anybody wants to risk their accounts of a site with a lot of information.
This site is interesting for pro-life, pro-death and pro-choice, all of them with different reasons

Since we've resurrected at 6 year old post, I'll add my two cents as I have noticed the same.

I think the biggest thing is age. Many of the people on this site are older. FAR above the average age for social media. We're less impulsive, less emotional, more exposed to language and know how to articulate our thoughts, and we respect the seriousness of the topic. Also, we're kind of united in the "us against them" mindset of this is our one place to express ourselves and we all know that.

I also feel like this site is very civil and insightful, never did I feel pushed to CTB. The hate online (you know which video I mean) seems to be pro life propaganda to me. People act all liberal, but then they want to deprive us of our most basic choice, because they don't want to recognize our suffering. As long as they can pretend that the wish to CTB is always irrational, they have an easy way to delegitimize the pain we are feeling.
