    Again sad news. Cornell was a great singer. Unique voice and great style. I always found his work to be very exciting and enjoyable.
    Another good one "left the building". RIP

    No Idea? WOW. YOU have no idea, anyone who could do this to their family,friends, and in his case, fans is a loser. nothing more, nothing less. I have personal experience, and a lot of it, been through the entire ordeal more than a few times. But overcame the Loser's way out, That's all it adds up to. Not nice? Not fair, Oh well this life is neither and never will be. Loser/Coward that is all. People need to get over themselves. Oh well.

    EXACTLY! we are all humans and most times can get a different opinion and insight on life. Care about yourself and others. There's Always another way. Talk to others.

    Depression is an illness, that can't be seen ... and sometimes, that ends with suicide.

    It's not as easy, that one can call it "looser" ... these people are ill!

    Funny, my son did this in 2008 and I don't call him a loser. So clearly I do have an idea of what it's about. If you have been through it as you say, you've learned nothing from it. You would know that calling people losers is wrong. It's actually the opposite of helpful, it stigmatizes all who are touched by it and discourages healing from happening. One day you'll grow up and understand that mocking this is not the way to heal it.

    Do you see what I mean? Now will you stop? Please?

    Okay, so thanks for the sympathy, but why did you persist after the first time I mentioned it?

    Exactly, because depressed people already are stigmatized, before suicide happens. And that is the reason why it happens. So again ... it's a mental illness.

    My first love I met after she attempted suicide and my best friend from 8th grade shot himself at age 22. I still experience bouts of weeping every year or so when memories of him hit me I don't see how you can write something like the above and tell others to "get over themselves" but I guess I'm more sympathetic to losers and coward and slower to judge them.

    We all have moments of being losers. It's part of what makes us human. Anyone who thinks their a winner all the time is kidding themselves and when they fall, they will fall hard. As I see it life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it. Lucky I have learnt from being a winner and being a loser at different times in my life. Not to get too deep but we all have parts of ourselves we don't like and the first step to overcoming that is to acknowledge those shortcomings, and then you have a chance of changing or accepting those things. Who would truly appreciate the sun, if it never rained?

    Yes, sure, but that has nothing to do with the illness "Depression", which is a totally different thing and the main cause for suicide.

    But sometimes there are different reasons ... for example a friend of mine, who did it after he became to know, that he has cancer and will die very slowly and painfull. Was he a coward? I don't think so.

    Calling someone a coward or looser is just too simple thinking, sorry.

    PS: But Hitler was coward, but he was also a madman.
