what the fuck would quinlan know about it?


#886

Is it relevant, he’s not wrong.


#887

He’s only a tramp.


#888

Is he wrong?


#889

Yes.

Does he know the guy personally?


#890

Most likely, he played against him.

Again, irrelevant, I believe it does no good to continue to fail to report suicide as what it is.


#891

he doesnt know it was suicide

i assume the media have protocols in regards to what to report to prevent contagion


#892

If it proves to be the case, we’ll revisit this. In the meantime, I’m happy to leave it be.


#893

The reason suicides are generally not reported as such are that it can lead to an increased number of suicides. Its why suicides tend to happen in clusters. http://www.samaritans.org/media-centre/media-guidelines-reporting-suicide/suicide-reporting-10-things-remember


#894

That’s happening as it is.


#895

Life insurance companies wont pay out either.


#896

I don’t think that is true unless policy taken out within 24 months of the death or failure to declare any mental or other health issues when policy taken out

Maybe because they don’t know they err on side of caution but unless an overdose or car accident then suicide will be obvious


#897

Correct


#898

Natural selection at work here.

Thats a particularly nasty comment. I hope you’re proud of yourself you cunt.


#900

It was some black humour. Aimed at a well maligned County. Not a biggy. Nothing like the sort of nastiness you or me or others on here are capable of.


#901

+1. Pure cuntishness.


#902

@Juhniallio 's edgy rebrand isn’t really working


#903

He had well publicised mental health issues in the past and is as entitled as anybody to comment here, kid.


#904

He is speculating about somebodies death and calling on the media to go against the protocols set out by prevention of suicide organisations
