Let me try and reword it then

I know exactly what a depression is, and also understand fully why some people kill themselves over this.

I also understand that when depressed you are having a very serious illness.

I dont deny either he has made a lot of good movies and other things, that brought happiness to a lot of people.

My only problem is really celebrating a person who commits suicide.

Since nobody is celebrating the fact that he committed suicide, nor the fact that he's dead, but instead is celebrating the things he did while he was alive, I think your 'concern' is logically fucked.

But whatever, man. You do you.

But here is what i dont get. Today he gets celebrates in medias all over for being such a special person.

Truth was in the end he did the most egotistical thing a person ever could do, kill himself and leave his family behind. On top of that it was no secret he was both addicted to drugs and alcohol several times during his career. So yes such a great person to celebrate. Next thing we start celebrating Putin.


It is well documented that he suffered from depression for many years. Depression is a disease that can cause you to have suicidal thoughts or actions and engage in self destructive behavior. What he did is not much different than a terminal cancer patient committing suicide.

Robin, you self centered bastard. How dare you deprive the rest of us from your jokes. Never mind your history of depression and drug addiction--keep living you selfish prick!

And comparing him to Putin is just frankly idiotic.

I sincerely hope nobody close to you ever commits suicide. Because if that happens what will you do? Call them a selfish bastard at their funeral? People commit suicide for different reasons. It's clear he suffered from whatever demons he had for many years. It was his choice to exit this world. A supremely talented and from all accounts a genuinely good person too. At least give him some dignity.

Robin Williams was my favorite actor. Awakenings and Dead Poets Society were among my favorite movies growing up. Awakenings in fact was the first movie that actually made me cry. This was by far the most personally aggravating celebrity death in my life time. Make God laugh sir.

The Warcraft Twitter account just basically confirmed they're going to do some kind of in-game memorial for him.
This isn't fucking Survivor. We aren't a tribe.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

Rofl warcraft memorial.

Fight the big boos, then right before you kill it, it jumps of a bridge and hangs itself?

Probably something more like this:

There are many, many memorials for players who have passed on in WoW, and none of them are "jokes."

From what I gather, he's been through two hellish divorces, and was about to go through a third. He and his third wife were no longer sleeping together.

So, take a guy that should be worth about 130 Million, but has already lost tremendous chunks of that in two different divorces... has just retreated to working in television because he needs money, and his show's canceled, and wife no. 3 is probably already talking to attorneys... and has a history of depression...

Christ. What a horrible black hole to find oneself in. Suicide's a terrible move-- and I really feel like he had many more years of good things ahead of him, even if wife NO. 3 was about to financially castrate him... but I can understand.

Apparently he was a gamer like us - even named his daughter Zelda after the game. Did he play WoW?

Oh and he loved DnD and other tabletop RPG games too.
