Two thoughts.

First, the girl was mentally ill and if this didn't push her over the edge, something else would have so Potter is not to blame.

Second, now we finally see some of the dangers of internet piracy!

Certain things are worth suicide and certain things are not? If you fall for one of the not worthy things you are mentally ill and something else would have done you in eventually?

basically, yes.  suicide is a person choosing to exercise their ultimate right to death.

doing so for the sake of an imaginary character in a book is either evidence of mental illness or great stupidity.

personally I think PE was being unnecessarily generous.

My first impression reading this was "someone made up something to get hits".

On more important matters: So was the widely linked digital pics of a book thing actually all a fake? If that's true, then that is absolutely awesome.
