Haha.....

Well my friend, it is better to feel angry than feel sad and depressed.

At least we know he was just a dick. Think of it this way, you put many of us at ease.

Thank you for doing all this. Really appreciate it.

Thank you for your efforts in this matter, Ehndras. It shows that players are willing to go out fo their way to help other players, and that's something to feel good about. As Lapallanch says: Better to be angry than sad.

"The real Slim Shade, please stand up"

Great story at cost of people who care. Just wondering if it's real and he just opened the door and "BM? Nah...". At least that would be a story, at all.
Now with the Skovgaard Family... and it's gone.

Could all still be true, but for whatever reason he changed his mind and then felt a dick when the police turned up so was all "who me?" about it.

Don't blame you for being angry, but this story could have had way worse endings. 

You have a good heart Greg.

Son of a BITCH! I can't believe I took this [email protected]#$%^& seriously. This is what I get for being so stupid. I did something I can't take back. I really thought this was legit. :( [email protected]#$ing [email protected]#$... I can't believe someone would be such an inconsiderate douchebag, putting people's emotional stability at risk. [email protected]#$ing [email protected]#$%^&!

You did a good thing here. Never forget that and never feel bad about it. When I logged in and saw that message in game (many hours after it had been posted) I thought it was real and got that icy chill on the back of my neck, thinking there was a distinct possibility that we'd all read a real suicide note, or at least a cry for help.

Never feel you got played here. You reacted as a caring person would do and you were in a position (and presumably the right country) to be able to chase it up with the Lake Havasu Police Department. If it was a bad joke or a hoax, or what ever we want to call it, then you're not the person who should feel bad.

Hopefully we can all rest easy knowing that you cleared this up for everyone who was worried or concerned. I also very much doubt that the Lake Havasu PD has a bad impression of you for reporting it.

You guys are right. Thank you.

Honestly, it could be either or. I was reported once, years ago, for a suicide attempt. I obviously played it off, having spoken to a close friend who convinced me it would be the utmost sign of cowardice to throw my life away, and pretended I had absolutely no flaming clue what they were talking about, that someone must have misconstrued my words or understood something I didn't intend to express. They were a bit skeptical, but without just cause, had to leave my property.

If so, I'm just glad he's okay. If not, then I still think the hoaxer is a colossal [email protected]#$%^&, but remain glad everyone's okay.

Admitting to suicidal tendencies is BAD in the US. Hell, if you call the suicide hotline the police show up at your door and try to force you into treatment in some cases. Its fairly ridiculous, but I guess better safe than sorry... Its a surefire way to ruin someone's life, but when someone's life IS what's on the line, I'd rather jeapordize a career than sit quiet as they lay dead and bleeding.

Is what it is, I guess. Glad all this ended on a good note.

Ehndras,

You did a very good thing. I am glad that someone looked into it. It is an immense tragedy when cries for help like this aren't acted upon because someone thinks it's a joke. Taking it seriously is the only thing that should be done. I commend you and thank you, for your efforts.

My pleasure. :) I wouldn't be alive if someone hadn't taken a stupid teenage cry for help seriously years ago, so I try to repay the good intent. No threat must be taken likely - nor the hardship of our fellow human. You never know what someone's going through.

When I see someone upset, I try to understand them and console them in whatever matter seems necessary. If someone's angry, I show kindness - sure, it pisses them off even more, but they'll appreciate it later on when they've calmed down. You never know if that "[email protected]#$%^& driving fast" or that "douche who bumped into you on the street" or the impatient guy who jacked your taxi is in a colossal hurry because his wife is giving birth, his kid is sick, he just lost his job, he's late for an interview and has a family to feed, or is otherwise having a very bad day. If it was that important to me, I'd be the one driving fast, walking fast, or taking the first opportunity to move. Therefore, its better to understand and empathize than immediately demonize.

A little life lesson I learned over the years, but only recently experienced: I can't count how many times this year I've been that one [email protected]#$%^& driving way too fast, and for a damn good reason. I had a guy block my lane and slow me down to 15 under the 65-mph limit when I blew out a tire on Route 78 on my way back from Pennsylvania this summer, on 4th of July actually. My cousin had just drunkenly backed up his Ford F150 (or 250, not sure) into my car, demolishing it. All my tires were bald because I can't afford to change them, I was low on gas, and my right front rim was damaged from the impact, compromising the integrity of my tire - and thus my control. Because of that dick not understanding that I needed to get near the shoulder as fast as possible and not be in the tiny under-construction-with-concrete-barriers-on-both-sides 2-lane with no embankment in sight, and his dumbass slowing me down as I tried to keep as much distance between myself and the horde of cars behind me as humanly possible, I very nearly caused a massive pileup when my tire exploded and I spun out. Thank god I decided to do something incredibly stupid and irresponsibly risky - my car is one of those fancy new ones that tell you your tire pressure. When I saw it hit critical, I switched lanes, cut off the guy next to the douche, and blasted to about 110 miles per hour til I got just near the start of the embankment. As I slowed down, POP. At around 70, I spun out, fishtailed across the beautiful, amazing, incredible, [email protected]#$ing-god 3 or 4 lanes and managed to hit the embankment going about 40, maybe a bit less. I skidded to a halt just beside the central divider - nice steel-cord between concrete mini-pillars, sure to annihilate my car and prevent me from killing anyone by flying into the opposite side of traffic. A very, VERY nice PA state trooper even stopped to help me change my tire! Apparently someone saw me and called 911, saying they're pretty sure I need an ambulance and am severely injured. Somehow, I managed not a single [email protected]#$ing scratch. Thank embankment saved my life - and that pissy douchebag who tried to slow down Mr. Speedy Gonzales? Well, he would have been responsible for my death, and the injury and damage to a good 30 cars behind me.

Lesson? Get the [email protected]#$ out of the way, because you don't know whose about to die, give birth, having a heart attack, about to [email protected]#$ their pants, or lose control of their vehicle. :)

I spoke to him a fair bit when he was playing Erasmus, seemed like a normal enough guy. I dunno - he did have a sort of twisted humor though. I'd be sad if this was more than that
Definitely had a twisted sense of humour, and I found him to be untrustworthy IC and possible OOC. Would not play with him again.
Taselak is Best-elak.
