Say NO To Posts On Self-Harm & Cutting

"
What do you do with an addiction? Do you feed it or do you try to cut its very source? Do you nurture a cancerous tumour? Nope! You dig it out of the flesh right from its very roots. 
 Regretfully, there are no rehab clinics for pathological liars and hopeless attention seekers online. I have frequently noted some writers here, perpetually professing to be in emotional distress and posting disturbing content including pictures of cutting themselves with blades. 
Any rational, sensible user would discourage them for two reasons: 1. If these are attention-seeking tactics then these should be rebuffed enmasse for obvious reasons. These are fakes, snowflakes and emotional leeches addicted to online attention. They’re just trying to feed on you and drain you of your positive energy. 
2. If they’re really sick then they should not be capitalising on it as self-harm/suicidal behaviour is encouraged, triggered by high levels of online attention and aggrandizing of it. So instead of unsettling others with gory pics & tales of self-mutilation, they should be directed to seek proper help in the right forums. Moreover, it gives wrong ideas to all other youngsters online. 
 My suggestion? As responsible writers on this forum, collectively shun all self-harm & depression posts. Do NOT review and appreciate them as it could be criminal to encourage them. Just message them gently, firmly to STOP IT and seek professional help. Who knows? You may be saving yourself from legal prosecution for abetting suicide/griveous self-harm. After all, its a global village now and the long arms of law may just wrangle you into a messy, bloody case. Take it from me. Self-harm is no joke. 
 SO BEWARE! SOMEONE TOLD YOU.

I certainly agree with your opinion here, Pestonjee. Having studied both psychology and psychiatry at an extensive level, i can attest to the dangers of self harm from the fragile of mind. It is very disturbing and becoming increasingly common. It should never be objectified in a positive light and any such people having thoughts of self harm should seek immediate medical attention. I appreciate you shining a light on a very serious issue.

gotchaaa! .
I can't disagree with this at all.
The site itself should police any writing that advocates self-harm, especially as mental health plays a massive part in everyday life now. More positivity needed, not less.
