Even though I was nodding in agreement for part of this ("i cut bcuz its the onlee pane i can controle"), I got to the line "People who truly want to commit suicide don't post letters all over the internet and brag to their friends about their plan." and really strongly disagreed. She seems to not really have more than a little bit of experience with LJ.

There are a lot of people who legitimately use LiveJournal as an outlet for the things that they didn't have anyone in real life to talk to about. Though one of the things I've always wondered is whether the emo is something that people are more comfortable expressing through LJ, or whether it's something artificially constructed because they have a medium to express through. I kind of think it's a little of both.

Yeah, I should've mentioned that I thought her conclusion about potentially suicidal friends was irresponsible...like technopatra said, with friends like Lizzy, who wouldn't be emo?

With friends like her, I'd want to slit my wrists, too. What a horrific lack of compassion.
