    Never heard anything bout this guy, but when i see the picture u posted, i get the feeling, hes was already gone there.
    Cant realy explain it in english, but that smile looks... forced to himself.

    I wont say im sorry for him... cause im sorry for everyone else. Its always the same, soneone dies (after strugling for years, screaming for help with everything except his voice) and everyones like: poor guy/girl. But why now?
    Now they are free. And were left here, with more and more unempathic (is this a real english word? xD) people.

    Biggest problem of the world: today communication is 100percent talkin...

    Depression is a serious illness. If you know someone or if you are suffering from depression, please seek help. My condolences goes to Erika's family.

    This is repeated everywhere and has never helped anyone but it sure makes you feel morally superior, doesn't it

    I never watched any of his videos, but I heard about his "suicide note" video from my brother who does. It's always a sad thing when someone dies young even if I don't know them. But even more so knowing that it could have been prevented. If only he had told someone so that they could get him the help he needed.
    What makes it NSFW?

    He had the courage I did not back in my day.

    I understand him. May he find gis place wherever or whatever world he is on now.

    Never saw his videos, didn't even know he existed until this news broke.

    Yeah ever since Youtube changed its ways it made him emotionally ill. Thats just how it is to some ppl Youtube is like a stock market or a long term job, but they keep treating content creators like trash.

    >>Depression is the inability to construct a future<<

    He seemed like a likable dude.

    Still. Same as with Robin Williams. The people that seem most happy/golucky are the saddest clowns inside.

    Bizarre. Unreal.

    I'm waiting for the scientific proof on that xD (Unless we're talking friends/family)

  12. Your opinion here is completely irrelevant and means absolutely nothing. The youtube channel doesn't belong to you,it belonged to a dead man that deleted it before committing suicide because he no longer wanted it to be on the internet. The fact that you wish to override a dead man's dying wish really makes me question the content of your character. How entitled do you have to be to think that your opinion is worth more than the opinion of the person that actually owned the channel?

  15. It's not your content,you have no right to it at all. I am not sure why you are failing to grasp this. How about we make a petition to change your mom's will so that someone else can inherit her estate? You can't just make petitions to take other people's stuff. That's just not how things work. I am not sure why you think you can make a petition to own someone else's things. Imagine if people could make a petition to steal your house. Society doesn't work that way and I have no idea what your parents taught you to make you think that is how things work.

    LOL that's entirely different, we are talking about a deceased person, not a living one, that will be a violation about his person's rights, so the only way you can stay in a disscusion is to mention the other person Mom? wow...

    364K and rising up...

    I never heard of this man before yesterday. I send my condolences to his family, friends, and fans.

    Sad to see someone go, but ultimately it was his choice and he felt that there was too much pain for him to want to continue in this world.

    Anyone that says suicide is selfish and that the person should think of everyone else is truly the most selfish thing. When someone is so hurt that they consider ending their own life and others are more concerned about how they feel instead and how it affects them are part of the problem and why people do decide to take their own life.
     
  18. I'm not sure if you are trolling right now or if you really lack the capacity to reason this through. The content belonged to a dead person, said dead person deleted HIS content because he did NOT want it on the internet anymore. It is NOT your content for you to decide what happens to it. How would you feel if someone made a petition to remove you from your family's will so they could keep your property? You can't just make petitions to steal other people's things.

    Ok, so once a person is dead we are allowed to go through their pockets and take whatever we want? I know that is not exactly the same, but it is still not showing respect for the deceased person. Stop thinking about yourself and what you want. This was this mans last statement to make and it should be respected.

    Not troling, just facts, i was a great fan of Etika, i watched every video of him, so... were you a fan of him...? you can feel his loss? i'm pretty sure you aren't.

    It's not disrespect, he had problems, mental issues, i respect his final words, it is not something for maliciousness, it is something to remember his legacy, what he was. Showing no respect is the memes around the ''Smash Ultimate Hell'' Facebook group, that disrespectful, this is not, is completely the opposite.
