Obviously the dumbass is just looking for sympathy. His girlfriend's response was perfect.

I tell everyone I know I don't deal with suicidal ********. It's cowardly, selfish and pathetic. If you have a problem you need to talk about I'm all ears, but the minute you think killing yourself is the answer then I'm walking away.

So rather than trying to prevent them from really screwing by committing suicide. You would rather leave them in an already dark place with suicide on their mind, potentially the one to push them over the edge assuming they thought they could trust you?
I do agree with your view on suicide however

I tried committing suicide when I was 13.

I stepped out in front of a bus one morning on my way to school. I'm not going to get into the why. Luckily for me though a passer by grabbed my backpack and yanked me out of the street and reamed me out for being an idiot. He just thought I hadn't looked before crossing. But he was right. I was being a total ******* moron, and my problems weren't even problems. They were tiny, miniscule things that I was blowing way out of proportion and they stopped mattering not even a month later.

I hate that I was ever so weak that I thought that was my best option. I know it's kind of hypocritical to be grateful for someone snapping me out of my decision while I condemn them, but so many people are so full of **** when they're "suicidal" nowadays and it makes me angrier than hell that they'd use it so lightly just for some attention.

We are all guilty of blowing things out of proportion, what may seem important today is forgotten tomorrow. The majority of people suffering from depression (of this kind) are generally younger people as well, however they seem to never realise that they have their whole life ahead of them, they have barely lived a quarter and they are already set in stone that it won't get any better.
I can totally understand when someone 'thinks' they need to commit suicide, however I am would always be there to point them otherwise

While I agree on how honorable that is I've been on the internet too long and my mind thinks sick things

Isn't suicidal people just a part of natural selection? It puts them out of the breeding scale and makes the mental illness less likely to be passed on

It's a perfectly reasonable way to look at things, in terms of true natural selection, suicide has been used in the example of mole rats. When they have an infection they will leave the colony to die. However this isn't really the same thing has human suicide. human suicide is based on our higher order cognitive ability, we know we exist, we can speculate about our future and we know that something is going to kill us prior. Although there are animals which display the odd ability, it is still completely unknown whether animals have the ability to combine these to perform an act similar to human suicide.
So as to answer your question, I don't think you could call it a part of natural selection, you don't reach a point in depression where your mind clicks to suicide, rather it is premeditated and thought out, you run out of available options and you seek an easy way out

It's totally understandable, the things that people find the most infuriating are the things they see in other people that are or at one point similar to themselves

Not because it's an unpleasant reminder, but because in most cases you've grown past it and can see just how immature and ******* ****** the whole thing really is

pretty sure the first poster was just being melodramatic after a crappy day at work or something.
