Trolls and the Suicidal Come Together, Face the Dark Side of Publicity, at 'Avatar' Website

“When I woke up this morning after watching Avatar for the first time yesterday, the world seemed… gray. It was like my whole life, everything I’ve done and worked for, lost its meaning. It just seems so… meaningless. I still don’t really see any reason to keep… doing things at all. I live in a dying world.” This from Ivar Hill, a 17-year-old Swedish game designer, on the Avatar forum page. Apparently, many Avatar fans have been feeling suicidal? But help is on the way. “And even if the CNN article does lure trolls here, it sure makes people who also are suffering from the pandora syndrome come here,” wrote one forum poster today. Also: “The dark site of publicity… It will go down after a while.” Yes, that’s what she said.
