The way she worded it was well and far away from how it should've been put, imo. While I sympathise and understand how bad her mental health is and the fact that she herself admits in the DM's right there that she is suicidal, the way she went about putting it into words wasn't in any way appropriate or necessary. In the context of the conversation, Azakalea and Mindgate were not exactly just chatting, the conversation seems to have been quite heated so Azakalea having dropped such a piece of information like "im downright suicidal smiley face" at the point in the conversation just after being told she was in the wrong and getting scolded by lore boy, it could easily be misconstrued as a veiled threat of self harm. Past that, it's a whole fucking lot to just drop on another human being like that, and while I fully support being there for each other and your pals, in the context of the conversation that was (and please don't take this the wrong way) kind of a shitty thing to do. I know Mindgate, I know how he is, and that's a lot of information to drop just like that on the poor fella when he's been stressing about this whole mess and the topic of the conversation. You've just gotta come at it from all angles and see all the possible ways someone could take a statement like that, man. It's kinda fucked up when you think about it.I’ve been observing from a distance during all this, but I couldn’t stay quiet with the accusation of suicidal threats.
I believe this is the quote where Aza “threatened suicide”? I asked and she assures me she never did once. So this clearly must be the blurb that’s being referred to. If so, you’ve wrongly twisted her words because there’s clearly no threat there. She first stated she was leaving and then stated she was not in a great place mentally, explaining that that’s why she was leaving.
I hope this wasn’t what you were all referring to, because twisting a persons words into a “suicide threat” is extremely low and despicable. Not even a “oh we made a mistake” is redeemable, because a decent person would double check before claiming something like that.
Anyways, let me know if I’m wrong and if I am bring a quote.
p.s refer to my previous message about the accusatory tone
