    Such sad news. RIP

    Yup, honestly so sad that Etika didnt get to go headfirst into the hacking scene. He was so hyped and had a 1.0.0 system too and was so ready for all of it.

    Sad to see it.

    The sad thing is, this news has such material to make a crack about how "NYPD didn't care" or "Nintendo job", but... I can't do it. I never even heard of the guy, but from what I'm reading of those that claim to, this was someone I wish I knew, and this news probably would have hit me worse if it did.

    My condolences to his loved ones and close friends. I can't imagine the pain they must feel right now.

    This is unbelievable. Man I loved his raw interactions and passion for his community. Always wanted to meet with him in NYC. Thoughts and prayers to his family and close ones, Rest Easy.

    I totally don't feel sorry for him, you cannot help someone who doesn't want to be helped. He took his own life and I will never feel sorry for someone who does that, I think is so selfish taking that way out... not caring about how your family your friends and in this case, your fans are going to deal with you doing this. I truly feel for the family and his friends, I can only imagine how horrible this must feel for them.

    Hope this sends a message to all of those new youtubers out there... being a public person is not easy, many people cant handle it, specially with platforms like YouTube or any other social media network... Internet is a pretty new thing people, there is just not enough data or statistics about how the virtual life affects or mental health...

    Love you all, if you think you're going thru depression or something like that please seek for help, reach out THERE IS ALWAYS a way out other than taking your own life, nothing can be that bad that can make you feel like you need to terminate your existence.

    Is there a way to for me to remove this from my own personal view from the front page? I dont mean to sound disrespectful, I'm just a really empathetic/emotional person and reading this kind of thing really brings me down and makes me anxious.

    After all the times he cried wolf, I have no sympathy for him. Pity his family has to deal with this though.

    I've never heard of the guy as I don't consider someone on YouTube a celebrity, but jumping off a bridge probably wasn't the most wise decision. Condolences to his real friends and family.

    Ok I think we need to talk about mental health. I myself suffer from some mental illnesses I'm not an expert though but I will say it's not as simple as taking it seriously.
    I believe the way we deal with mental health is incredibly shallow as a society. Mental Illness is a societal problem as well as an individual one. Sometimes people who are mentally ill don't get the help they really need even though they seek it, and the help they find just isn't enough.

    Now I agree with the overall of your message and I'm not blaming you or anything it's just that someone like me that does struggle with these issues it's not so much as they aren't taking seriously it's just that the help there sometimes isn't enough and suppression which some help boils down to isn't enough and people in the end just want it to end and they take their lives.

    Then why did you read and then comment on it? I suggest reading on how to properly deal with negative emotions and until you can limit yourself to exposure, but don't count on others to support negative actions like censorship.

    Don't take offense. I said nothing wrong. I'm easily affected by deaths. it's sad, and it affects me to read. I'm not asking them to remove it, that wouldn't be my place. I'm just asking what can ***I*** do to remove it from MY view on the front page, if anything. I know forums often have customization options. What I asked is COMPLETELY okay, and there was nothing wrong with asking it. The fact that you're getting offended by what I said is immature and silly.

    You could use an ad blocker like uBlock Origin to hide the front page news column.

    Edit: And also change the recent content column to something like blogs so recent posts from this thread don't show up.
