> while I find it frustrating that we can't do more to help on Babble, other than inform Dr. Bob or try to get a person to reach out in real life, I also find it the very thing that allows me to be active here. If I felt like I could do something for suicidal posters, the responsibility would overwhelm me.
I've been wondering about trying to enable concerned posters to notify a suicidal poster's Internet service provider. So it wouldn't depend so much on my availability. It would of course need to be set up carefully. Information that identified the suicidal poster wouldn't be disclosed to the concerned posters, for example. What do you think? Would that be overwhelming?
