    Look at this link. Clearly, the person asking the question has given up and is going to become "an hero" soon if they don't seek help; they think suicide would be a relief. The person who answered has a history of depression and suicidal thoughts. Was it ethical to answer the person's question? What would you do if a stranger asked you such a question on Tumblr?

    Totally ethical. It's reverse psychology. That poster is not suicidal.

    It's not reverse psychology. Reverse psychology would be to egg him on and say "go ahead, kill yourself.", which wouldn't work anyways because of the asker's state of mind.

    Sometimes you're really stupid, Paul.

    You obviously have no idea how reverse psychology works. It's not always clear to the average person. icon_wink.gif

    Isnt the poster claiming to be depressed? If he's not depressed he's just being a jerk anyway, so by definition its not ethical, since being a jerk by definition is not ethical... Ive been told a million times by doctors... you act like a jerk, you get sued...

    Erik Rhodes is completely psycho. I know people that have lived with him and dated him. He is NUTS.

    I am not surprised he answered the questions. He only posts suicidal shit to get attention and press.

    I dont personally think he is a bad guy, but he does need help.

    The original poster said nothing about killing himself. He did however hint at something drastic (Bullshit).

    Persons with suicidal tendencies don't share them if they are serious.

    Besides he's asking for 'sad' and 'depressing' music, why not just answer the question? Emo much?

    My recommendation:

    Mindless Self Indulgence : You'll Rebel To Anything (As Long As It's Not Challenging)

    key words:


    "It's time you invested in a bottle of poison
    So we don't have to hear about you bitchin and moanin.
    You think you could afford a fuckin bottle of asprin.

    Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose live's a piece of shit
    And yet miraculously somehow we all seem to deal with it.
    Did anybody think that you would really seriously slit your wrists?
    In fact I think that everybody thinks you're seriously full of shit."

    I guess Paul doesn't want to explain why it's reverse psychology.

    He wants to show Erik what a negative impact his choice of music has on his fans, and what the result will be if he doesn't find a way out of his assumed depression.

    PS. I aced psychology with ease, and was begged by the professor and the dean to change majors to psych, or at least have it as a minor. I told them I'm not fucked up enough in the head to do that (professor was a bdsm fetishist - got that out of psychoanalyzing him, and he admitted it in private). icon_lol.gif

    Or people who enjoy that type of humor... I'm a huge fan as well, and I actually live above ground.

    Honestly, if he was going to kill himself he wouldn't be blogging about it he would have already slit his own throat. He's just trying to get as much attention as he can. He was in porn for gods sake. If that isn't a call for attention I don't know what is

    I do not see anything unethical about his response. The poster ask if he knew any really depressing songs and Erik told him. I am always baffled by others judging people who decide or think about committing suicide. I think it takes a brave person to take his or her own life. I wish people would learn to live there lives and stop trying to tell people how live theres

    Oh, so you're saying the asker is the one using reverse psychology.
    You could have mentioned that in the first place. icon_neutral.gif

    The guy just wanted to get some attention from Erik Rhodes. He's probably fapping right now.
