I would argue the opposite -- that suicide is so hard to do, that a forum about suicide is pointless.

It's like having a forum about alchemy or something. It's about as hard for a hopeless loser and fuck-up to successfully kill himself, as it is for some medieval dude to turn lead into gold. There are only about 50,000 suicides in the U.S. per year; you gotta figure, probably more than 50,000 people realize every year that they're hopeless losers, but only a handful actually are able to find a way to kill themselves.
