I am a lot better now, but nine months ago I attempted suicide in part due to environmental guilt(fish to be precise). So of course, I found that topic rather concerning.

The question is; where shall we draw the line? what debates would we censor just to reduce the suicide risk of a potential depressed lurker?
Meh, I think there's a pretty clear difference between talking about overfishing with someone thats depressed about it and actively telling someone who says they're going to kill themselves that they should do it.
