You did start off by literally saying hell awaited him.

I'm sure you're aiming at a more general point, but in this instance, it is six children by two wives, and he will no doubt leave a large estate behind (he likely acted in full knowledge of this). I wouldn't worry about them.


By your own logic (which is absurd, you have to admit), his large estate should have been the emotional support that prevented his own suicide. You can't literally believe that money is in any way a substitute for a father, your post reads like satire.


The logic was fine. I did not claim that money was, by any means, a complete substitute for a father, and I'm not trying to totally exonerate him either, what I meant was that his children are probably provided for. Obviously, I have a more minimal standard of what constitutes parental responsibility than you. I could understand labelling someone a coward for abandoning their own children to a miserable life without financial security or without any parent or guardian whatsoever, but not for the removal of 'emotional support'. I don't think a child's right to an emotional crutch in the form of a father trumps a father's right to kill himself. And, as has already been pointed out, his suicide would suggest that he wasn't able to offer emotional support in the first place.

I specifically said that I sympathise with his struggles and his tragic situation, multiple times in this thread. Who knows what you are even responding to[/quote]
He does not need your sympathy as well. He is dead now. Your sympathy here is for your own self. Don't guise it as an attempt to take a higher moral ground.

His suicide would suggest he was at a particularly low point. The feelings that lead people to attempt suicide may be recurring but they are not permanent. I strongly disagree that a father's right to kill himself trumps his children's right to a father but like you said we obviously have different standards.

Yeah, because everybody shares your nerd atheist tic where the slightest mention of God forces you to regurgitate some snarky r/atheism-tier response. Maybe you should go outside once in a while.

LOL you are andrew level of retarded


:lol: go outside so someone can push you into a locker

What's with the f*cking mania here to derail every thread from its initial purpose?

At the end of the day discussing whether he should or should not have won't change anything, he's still gone.

No one will agree on what answer is right or not so the discussion is fairly futile.

If you feel like posting about it may as well just pay respects to his family and wish them a fast recovery despite that being essentially useless because this is a gaming forum but its nice to voice your opinion sometimes.

Mental illness is a nasty thing but it can be treatable, i'd urge anyone feeling like that to get help to not end up in that kind of situation.

Chester's voice was my favourite sound as a teenager.

What a tragedy.
