It always strikes me as odd when people comment on the dickishness of public suicides. Here's a comment from the Wired article:
wow what a dick why would he stream his own death? if he wants to kill himself...fine, but those people watching who probably assumed he wouldnt do it could be traumatized. Its his life, he can do what he wants with it but dont mind fuck other people who still have the balls to go on livingSee, if you're going to commit suicide, you should be thoughtful about it. I much prefer the well-adjusted, clear-thinking suicide types.
