From the tidbits I have been hearing and reading about, the entire things seems rather weird to me. :?
On the issue of suicide, I used to think, as many do, it is a selfish and cowardly act, and to some extent it is. There's a side of it though, that many don't experience firsthand, which convinced me that the majority of people who have reached this point are no longer in a rational state of mind, and although it may be selfish and leave a huge wake of destruction (ie family and loved ones dumped suddenly into a cauldron of emotional turmoil), the suicide committer is usually not cognizant of the damage he/she is doing at the time. It's a real drag and a stupid point of no return, but there's not much rationality or thought going on at the time. It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
I'm not referring to the multitude of "suicide threaters", but the real deal.
