Our expert says:
Its probably safer than the world outside, I do understand how shocking you found the unsympathetic messages, clearly from people who found then unusual series of suicidal message on Blue Monday morning, unduly upsetting to them, for personal reasons.
There is evidence to support the extent to which, as a depressed person becomes suicidal, their thinking becomes constricted and increasingly negative ; the notice and remember only the most negative aspects of life as they experience it or have experienced it, and don't notice or ignore any positive elements. They tend increasingly to discount postive possibilities, and "see no other way out" --- not because in reality there IS no other way out, because there are always other ways out, but because they don't SEE any alternatives.
Being aggressive towards people who feel in this way is of course cruel as well as unhelpful, as it confirms their unrealistically negative view of life. Notice how those responses demonstrate how one person's suicidal ideas actively threaten and frighten someone else, provoking in some cases the hostile responses.
But you will know, from experience that this is generally one of the safest and most supportive places to share feelings of all kinds.
