That is how I felt as a person who talked him live, as other members of the podcast, for well over a year every Sunday for two to three hours, it makes me wonder, accident or not, if there was something I missed.

He told us a few times in the preshow that he would take a short cut across the tracks because it was almost an hour difference to get to town. He even said that he had a close call once because he was listening to his MP3 player and almost got hit. Didn't hear the train coming untill he could feel the rumble. I see teens walking on the tracks to get to the mall near my place almost once a week.

Having to deal with depression my self, I can get the sence of when some one else is going to that dark place. I never got that vibe from Dragavon. He still had passion for the things he wanted to talk about on the show. Talking about what's happening in fictional characters' lives becomes unimportant when your feeling down and out. His last shows had a few good rants. Granted, I stopped being able to hang and talk after the show awhile ago so you guys might know some thing I don't. But based on the info I have plus personal experience, I think this really was an accident.

yeah I'm in the same boat as you prozacman, i can tell when others are in the type of head space that htey'd kill themselves. Drag never seemed like that. He was genuinely happy with life.

being genuine here, is it respectful or dis-respectful to continue posting in a thread that Dragavon created?

What is the policy? What is the opinion?

Talking about a passion to online friends is one thing. Once the mic is off back to real life and that is when issues can be real again. This talk of catching something and fixing it is utter bullshit. Parents lose kids to suicide all the time and are blindsided by it. To think that a few online friends talking comic books could see a suicide issue? Just no way and if you are beating yourself up over it knock it off and go volunteer at a facility for at risk youth and make up for it.

Might I cordially suggest you take this line of debate to pm? This thread is not the place for it.

Final word on this: no you weren't. You were debating a statement Prozac made in reply to someone else. Best leave it now, IMO.

to me that's a way to honor them in a way... i don't think he'd want us to NOT continue talking about it
