EQ Suicide?

Rumour has it, some teenage girl got so attached to EverCrack that when Verant took away her moderator (guide) status, she apparently committed suicide. Here’s preliminary coverage, followed by evidence of a hoax, followed by another post about the matter. People who reach this sorry state (be it truly suicidal, or with intent to perpetrate a hoax) require a different kind of attention that an online community is a poor substitute for. It’s certainly not Verant’s direct fault.
