It's a selfish coward's way out and I have no sympathy for anyone who commits suicide except for folks in extraordinarily bad situations, like people suffering in third world regimes and certainly not anyone who has the privilege to access a computer.
i would go as far as to say that there are other things that would be considered 'extraordinarily bad situations' that could constitute suicide but those are far and few in between.
