Erowid in the news

Not as bad as the shroomerys recent event, but it probally brings us 1 step closer to net censorship.

Shroomery got a bit of press in regard to Ripper....No big deal though Thor handled everything with his usual class and intelligent manner.

How did the media pick up on ripper? Was it the rest in peace ripper sticky? Was it on a national wire? Are there links to the story? I'd love to read it.

Search alll forums for the user Rich, who is Ripper's brother. He, and Thor(so you can ask him too) created a webpage in Brandon's honor. It is pretty sharp, a fitting memorial. Anyway, it has links on there to various media stories. Somebody posted one this morning that was in an English news paper. For better or for worse, the story is spreading.

Oh My God. I knew that Brandon (ripper) died. But I never inagined he did it in the shroomery chatroom with assholes egging him on. Is that what this community does to hurting people. This is supposed to be for informationand support to stay safe while having fun. These people in chat helped this guy kill himself. It made me disgusted to read that and now my feeling toward the community are angry that they helped kill someone like that. A man was dieing and someone joked that if he dies his drugs are mine. It's just disgusting.  :mad: :mad: :mad:

I know Jammer, I actually got a bit TOO wrapped up in the events going on in the mod forum over the last few weeks. I won't let that happen again, it's no fun.
