    this feels like common sense, but obviously morons still play it.

    people just don't know how to appreciate their life...

    yeah but it's common sense not to kill yourself.

    Well i was reading one, and it said used a type of manipulation; like it would show you teens committing it, and then stuff like it. Then it had you wake up at 4:20 in the morning. So what i did was make you make irrational decisions, and then it would make it look like that the world was going to shit(Not that it isnt). and so like it would make it seem like the only choice.

    I feel like with something like this, you're drawing more attention to it by saying "Don't do this" than it would otherwise have. I had never heard of this before you mentioned it, and I'm fairly sure the people that would want to do this for whatever reason, wouldn't stop because of a post on a public forum.

    It's fucking fake. These websites are doing it for attention and every pic posted on these pages been known to be wide-shared here in Poland by fake news websites. Just stop believing in whatever you see on the internet, no one can hack your phone by having just a phone number.

    It's fake. Our version says that you need to send a SMS to start playing this game and then x person asks you to send you pics of your cut veins or else he will hack you.

    wery skary, totally true, my ass.

    thats not what is happening here, you download the game from the appstore, then you get the game and play it, there are people who are actually dying from this, one kid did it on livestream. (Havent checked the livestream to see if true yet though)
