Mental health for teenagers has come into focus recently following the suicide of a 16 year old girl in Durham, North Carolina due to depression.

Depressed kids commit suicide every day; no offence, but why would this particular kid be a special case that attracts national attention?

Also, I think it'd be awkward for Cooper to just call this girl "this girl," so I'm going to take the liberty of giving her a name.

Iím not trivializing it or saying itís no biggie or that it doesnít matter - only that the fact is that these things are unfortunately very common, and the reality is, one kid committing suicide is never this big of a news story. Perhaps it should be - and Iím not arguing that it shouldnít - but the fact is that it isnít, and thatís what I was saying. Unless the circumstances were extraordinary or highly unusual or something - this would not be a national story and would not warrant a visit to the suicidedís parents by POTUS.

This game dead, once and for all, then? Kind of disappointing, but I'll take some of the blame if it has.

This game dead, once and for all, then? Kind of disappointing if it has, given how far we'd gotten (myself in particular - no offence to anybody else, but I'm the only one who played from start to finish) but I'll take some of the blame if it has. Either way though, given that it's been over 2 weeks since anything was posted in either thread, pretty sure it has.

Still planning to get posts in on my end, eventually. I'd expect them soon.

Any updates on this?
Anyway, I honestly do think, whether you post or not, this game is dead...I myself don't post very much on the forum of late, Ashton's not been active here either, and most importantly, GoTfan seems to have quit as GM for real this time (and I take all the blame for that - though I did try to persuade him to stay on temporarily).
