There are essential questions, that arise the second a member of our community decides to end everything. Questions like: Are we too harsh? If the answer is yes, then the next question, the issue of guilt, comes to mind.
Are we guilty of driving members into a realm where they cannot defend themselves anymore?
We can look for very specific cases, like Kevin's case. Or we look for a very broad scope.
Personally I have to shy away from the details and look everywhere at the same time. Never lose the whole picture!
And the first question from a wide point of view needs to be reevaluated. Are we too harsh? The answer is "No". We are the product of a community that is all, but being honest! If we were honest, harshness would not be an issue.
And I wish I would have the ability to put into proper words what is in my mind.
PS: Will the Magic Cafe Moderators finally grow some and leave the thread online? Or will they chicken out of any honest discussion as they have done some many times? We could use more honesty guys. And sometimes flames hurt. And sometimes that is a good thing. Grow up!
