Mixed bag, I'm afraid. Many will actually be crying out for attention while others are crying wolf. It's hard to tell the differnce sometimes, and there lies the rub. When do WE take it SERIOUSLY enough to act upon someone's statements? I have seen it go both ways. Personally, I would err on the side of caution, and would reach out to someone with suicidal ideations posted (even in veiled terms) on this board. Most of us get to "know" the major players here, so we know when to worry. However, there have been several "falling outs" when "friends" have called the 5-O when they think someone is in danger of a snuff, which, of course, resulted in MUCH embarrassment and anger for that person. No way to win, just be consistent.
