But I know the blog posts of Joel. And I was puzzled when he announced that he shut down the forum on his site. He was very vague about what happened, but one "eye witness" told us what happened.
I don't know what to think about this, I haven't been following this.
Yet, in one of his suicide notes, he posts a couple of quotes. One, I find very interesting.
"Suicide sometimes proceeds from cowardice, but not always; for cowardice sometimes prevents it; since as many live because they are afraid to die, as die because they are afraid to live" - Charles Caleb ColtonTo anybody nurturing thoughts of suicide: Life your life. Choose to life your life. If you think you have the freedom to take away your life, you have the freedom to life your life.

You have the freedom to life your live the way you want.
But life your life. Make it a conscious decision.
