I certainly am not condoning or supporting these sites by any means, but if these individuals had tried to commit suicide previously as is suggested here:

Then the likelihood of a completed suicide in their future increases significantly. Suicide site be damned. They can ban the site to their heart's content, the poor guy would likely have still found a way to end his life eventually if that is what he wanted (unless he was receiving proper treatment, and even then it would have been a difficult battle).

As harsh and ignorant I may sound, I actually agree with you.
I've been on medication, had therapy and still I get suicidal every now and then so ban a few or more sites won't make a difference, besides, suicide is a personal choice, some people really can't cope anymore, even if they tried.

omg I had no idea these sites even existed. Yes I think they should be banned. Fancy having these sites there for those who are vulnerable to taken there own life. Shouldnt be allowed.
As for the young man who tried a number of times to kill himself Im afraid to say he was going to do it any way.
Terribly sad he didnt ask or get the help he needed.
So so sad

I agree. I might not like these sites but I do not think a mentally well individual who has no thoughts of suicide is going to attempt suicide by looking at these sites. These sites, as much as I might disagree with them, are for audience of those already seeking to attempt suicide and people will still do it even if these sites do not exist.

yeah your right there going to kill themselves anyway but if these sites werent there maybe it wouldnt be as easy. Its like click a death wish on line.
The sites sound like they feed so much negitive information. Omg the site sent him a package goodness know what was in it could have been poison for all we know.

I think for many, its easy to blame a site. If that site did not exist Sally would not have killed herself. This is easy to do but what is hard is to think and really be honest, was I there for Sally. Did I miss the signs. When she called me crying that she was depressed and I brushed her off, if I would have talked to her or got her to seek professional help, would she be alive? I am no saying loved ones are responsible for the suicide of anyone but what I am saying is that its easy to blame a site and not look at ourselves to see if we could have helped. Could we have helped to prevent this.

Sometimes no matter what we do or say, the other person will end their lives but often times, having someone, getting professional help will prevent it and these people are crying out for someone to listen and its possible others were too busy or did not care enough to see it and now want to blame a site.

yes i agree totally with everything your saying they could be using the site as an excuse they didnt see it coming. Thought these feelings there child was having would pass. Shame the parent who son had tried to kill himself before didnt get all the help he needed.
I just dont think they should have these sites there for people to just look up. Just to me seems so wrong

I never knew such sites existed! How utterly disgusting. They should be banned.

I agree with the others that "where there's a will there's a way". However, sometimes, when a person is in pursuit of something, they need to feel they aren't alone in their thoughts, or that their thoughts aren't 'wrong'.
Certainly such sites encourage them; give them the company they are obviously seeking - (or lets face it, they wouldn't be there in the first place. )

These sites need to be done away with. Plain and simple! And I mean Now.

Oh yeah, I do agree that the sites aren't good and are bad but banning them won't stop the depressed people because I've had depression since I was a toddler and I never started using the internet actively until I was like 18 or 19 but still, back then I never knew such sites existed and I already tried attempting suicide back when I was in high school.

I only recently discovered those sites myself when I found out about some guy filming himself committing suicide after talking to people on a suicide forum but even then, websites didn't make me suicidal, life did.

I suffer with depression myself; and suicidal thoughts from time to time throughout the years. I understand completely. (I'm in treatment)

I do agree these sites don't make the person suicidal, they already are. However, some may be too chicken to do it on their own and such a site affords them the company and encouragement they are seeking. ' A certain comfort in their presence. (or why even be there? Why didn't they just go ahead and do the deed on their own? See what I'm saying? )
I do believe absolutely some may not have committed the act without such a support system.

These sites should not be legal. They should be prosecuted as surely as any accompolice in a murder would be. (suicide is murder of self)
