Post Re: Jason Burns Threatens Suicide?

If someone believes Jason is going to commit suicide or harm himself, they should be getting in touch with his family, not taunting people on YouTube with it.

He's obviously seeking attention, and has found it's a lot easier to get negative attention by poking at the atheists who have found him on YouTube. That doesn't seem like healthy behavior. Perhaps hanging out with other Christian YouTubers will give him more positive attention that he obviously needs.

Greetings,

Aron, has Sam confirmed that someone named Jason Burns phoned him to complain about you?

Kindest regards,

James

Wait did he really just apologize for saying crazy things? Understatement of the century.

You mean he didn't really write to his prime minister, and my president, in order to get both of these world powers to defend his YouTube ministry against me and DPR Jones? I suppose you expect me to believe that he didn't really call Sam Harris on the phone to complain about me either, right?


Hard to believe ain't it?

Either way I wasn't referring to that stuff, since that is very clearly bollocks ..like his "paper". It's the "other stuff"

Post Re: Jason Burns Threatens Suicide?

[quote="Dragan Glas"]Greetings,

This is one of the reasons why YouTube should have a psychological team to monitor users who are unstable - like the late manic depressive user who killed a girl and then committed suicide.

I still don't know if there's a way to contact YouTube in these sort of circumstances.

Jason is not someone who should be encouraged.

Mad dog Burns is text book bipolar in my opinion. If you watch his videos in sequence you can see the bipolar pattern with the big highs and then the big crash.
I have told him many times to see a doctor and get treatment I don't think he is suicidal (even if he was he never ever finished anything) He went on hunger strike and that was from lunch till dinner and he made a video of himself eating a McDonalds. He is an attention seeker but I don't think he is suicidal.

Greetings,

Collidingmembranes, I still wish YouTube had specialists to monitor and intervene when people who show signs of psychological instability start posting such videos.

The last time this happened it resulted in a murder-suicide - how many times does this have to happen before somebody does something to prevent it?

Kindest regards,

James

When you're quite done with generalising disparagingly based on the opinion of one member you disagree with, let us know.

It is not youtubes responsibility to vet people. People who have mental problems need to be helped by the people around them and not stigmatised by youtube saying they are not fit to post.
This is jasons only way of meeting people (apart from street preaching) it is his life, I wouldn't want to take that away from him just because he is a bit nutty, jesus Christ half of youtube are fucked up in the head.
People with mental problems will find someway to act out, if you take one thing away they will use another. You will not cure someone by take them away from youtube (and it may do more damage) If you wish to help Jason, tell him to see a doctor about his bipolar disorder, that's all we can do.
You may want to right all the wrongs in the world, but you will only stigmatise and bury the problem.

Probably because it's a valid comparison. Mentally unstable religious fundamentalist, who makes a hobby of harassing atheists in a consistently unhinged manner. It's not wholey a million miles away, and while Jason isn't going to pop round someone's house and shoot them, someone with that level of mental instability is potentially a risk to themselves, and I say that as someone with mental health issues.

While I'm not in the camp who's worried about Jason, (melodrama is his MO, and this suicidal attitude thing is but hearsay), it's worth keeping in mind he clearly does have issues.

The only person responsible for jays mental health is jay.

If this dumbnuts is going to post his inane & often hate-filled (has he implied anyone might be child abusers recently....?) he gets exactly the response he deserves.

You're right - it's g00gs (aka G00gle) responsibility to care what is going on, enabled by their plattform-offer.
And the least they have to provide is an easy way to address them and a handfull of people to check it and to pass it on to some appropriate team.

But apart from that it is you and I who could call on the police if we encounter an urgent threat. I have never met one until know, except on another forum where the admins took care about this to pass it on.
