While the recent GM add depicting a robot contemplating suicide might have been in poor taste, at the time it came on I didn't think it to be that big a deal. As someone who's been touched by suicide, and one who supports AFSP, I understand the point, but that doesn't mean we all need to be walking on eggshells here. And now there are a lot of trolls out there who are probably just having a field day on this, that AFSP is being politically correct, overreacting, etc. etc. To turn Kurt Vonnegut end up: "I don't believe that, too."

At least GM responded as quickly to AFSP as a corporation would, say, for some right wing Christian fundamentalist group complaining about seeing a little nipple.

If FB decides to reinstate the account of the former "president" tomorrow, I expect an uptick of activity here for random updates ...
