From Arasta, regarding a recent story about a gamer's suicide: i read the story as AFP ran it originally and thought it was sad. now it turns out most of the story was fabricated by one of Agence-France-Presse's journos. it was quite a widely reported story so that to now hear it was 85% or better a fabricated story and not true is both an insult to the family of the deceased but also to gamers who have once again, been painted in a less than healthy light. sadly the part of the story that WAS true is that the bloke did suicide.
