A few hours ago strange tasting fish sticks posted what was tantamount to a suicide note here on the Café. Is there anybody here who can get in contact with the guy to make sure he is ok?

I saw it too. Anyone know him? He clearly needs help.

I hope he's ok.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

There was a pretty nasty post on a separate thread, after which a load of people put the boot in. I wish Kevin well, and can only hope he stays clear of this bloody place.

Unfortunately, it appears Kevin passed away after making the post.

Oh my god, that is unbelievable. I'm very sorry to see this, and my thoughts go out to his family.

I don't think I'm even going to bother hanging around the Café anymore. It's been worthless for quite sometime. I have no respect any longer for anyone that has moderating powers on TMC. This is beyond sick of them to have deleted the thread that was a cry for help.

I don't know what to say.

Really, friends, there was nothing you could have done. The Café, either. I've been down that road. When the pain is too great, there is nothing...NOTHING anyone can do. Blaming the Café is wrong. We are all friends here, yes. But this is not a mental hospital.

This is not the place to bring the horrors of mental illness. This an internet forum for magicians. No matter how much you tried, this still would have happened. Some things just cannot be fixed.

Cop out, Doug. Magicians are human beings. A little enlightenment in that direction could go a long way round these parts, I think.

Doug, there's no guarantee this would have happened, but there's also no guarantee anyone could have stopped it.

However, I do not believe anyone is blaming anyone here for what happened, but they are are likely correct in lashing out at someone for deleting the other thread.


Let's not devolve into anything typical of online bull **** right now.

Cop out? Never though of it like that...yeah, we're human. Problem is, we're HERE. We can't be THERE to be of much help. I agree with ya. I could use a little enlightening. I've been a bit cynical lately. That's wrong. I need to work on it.

I'm alone most of the time. I know no one around here. I can relate to a lot of what STFS stated about this whole thing. Thing is, I LIKE being alone. That's the difference. STFS needed people to be around. To feel he had a purpose. I know the feeling. As I said, been there, done that. Got the T-shirt.

Forgive me, Laurie, if I sound heartless. Didn't mean to come off like that. I'm as confused as the rest of you...

You don't sound heartless, Doug. I just think people need to pay attention. We can't afford to dismiss so easily, even if, technically, the powers that be are able to do so. The Magic Café can be significant, much as some would like to scoff at the notion.

Oh...I see. I missed a couple things here. A deleted post. OK, yeah. I'm with ya. Not good when the Café does that. Could have been the tipping point, who knows? He did exactly what he said he'd do, too. Told people. Cripes. I'm sick about this.

I need a break. I really do...

So sad to hear that... just after reading the now deleted post, I rushed on FB to see and try to contact some Kevin's family member.. I understand some of his friends reacted and tried to contact him... but too late.

I also believe some member on this forum can be very ashamed now.
