I think a better question is why did the poster known as Big Paul revive a post that is from 2012 and comment on it?

It is sad regardless how she died.

In another, the girl just took a really high dose (for some reason), perhaps she was suicidal or just not thinking straight.

In many cases, others are involved, but i don't think it's right to totally blame other parties, unless they really pressured her to take it/force-fed her of course. Taking any kind of pill is risky, so you should be prepared of the consequences.

Of course any death is tragic, but I have to admit I can't help but feel a bit less sympathy for these cases than those who say died as a passenger in a car accident.

There's a flood of tributes.etc from friends when this happens, and they always talk about what a kind, friendly, generous etc person she was. I mean they kind of have to, I suppose, so to be honest I do wonder when they say things like that. Not EVERYONE who dies a tragic death is some saint in life. NOT to say that taking drugs makes you a bad person or if you take drugs you deserve death, but it's treated as a tragic accident (I suppose in the case of ecstasy it kind of is, since it doesn't usually kill you, but the risks are there) when it's really the responsibility of that person.
I have 0 sympathy for someone like that. I know its mean, but she didnt die of natural causes or an unfortunate accident, she willing took this drug, so she hqs to be accountable. If parents were doing their jobs, then maybe this wouldnt have happened. I liken it to thinning of the herd. The smart survive, the rest...well, dont.
