Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

WTF? Chris McKinstry

The photo has been removed, along with all references to ?off:

NOT cool.  ?off was a major part of the attempt to save the guy's life.  Wikipedia is full of dicks.

True, but we failed.  And even ?off has been disowned by its creator.

WE know what happened that weekend.  I'd forgotten it was only January 2006 -- it seems so much longer ago now.

I think we should come up with a standardized entry with the references to ?off restored, and then begin a campaign of editing until we're all banned from Wikipedia for setting the record straight.

Then we can get on the news and bitch about how Wikipedia is run by frauds.  It's a popular thing to do.

Don't worry, the link to Matt's site is still there & that's all that really matters... Well , unless you're Flasher in which case the link should be to Antyx.net.

Matt. You know. Matt. British guy. Runs Dashslot.co.uk. Looked like Jesus, shaved his head, does coke, probably works for Joost now, got a blowjob from a woman the weekend before her wedding, is enamored with some chick from NY and wanted to visit her even though she was married.

Weren't you the guy saying it was a desperate plea for attention & that he'd be back in 6 months under an assumed name?

It's Mat Hall. He was working with Joost when he last posted.

Well, it WAS a desperate plea for attention.  So that's half-right.

Bah.

He didn't ?off himself until the next day, so from that perspective the whole online show *was* just a plea for attention. Perhaps he didn't get enough of a response, or was shamed enough by his own actions and the reactions of some close to him (e.g. the whole girlfriend thing) that he got more serious about it the next day.

(...or his mindwave experiments found out something about Putin)

That day gap is a point that people always conveniently forget, ignoring that a person with a long history of "attempted" attention seeking "suicides" obviously wasn't on his deathly overdose, and after all of the theatrics it wasn't until the next day that he really did it.

Call me insensitive, but calls that he was being a drama clean were proven out to be correct.

isn't 'drama queen' the definition of the average suicider?

that doesn't make it any less of a tragedy.  or any more stupid.


meh.  the thing to do with suicide threats is ignore them.  the problem always goes away on its own.

+1 wSV. A public suicide note to a forum, a mailing list, and his blog - and waiting around for an hour or so for responses proves that he's a drama queen.

What I'm saying is that muppet shouldn't be so up in arms that Wikipedia discounted ?off's attempts to save his life because he not only wasn't part of the effort, he was actively working against it.

So uhm, I'm guessing that the fact you guys noticed means that Joel was right.

What, are you checking his Wiki entry every day or getting email notifications?

The picture dropped off 6 months ago.

Joel was right about what?

Some of us occasionally look back and remember the time we tried to save a life.  Interesting times. And Joel wants to wipe every trace of it off the web because it might show FagCrap software in a bad light.

Joel was right about what?

That his off topic forum became overrun with mentally unstable losers.
