But seriously, I'm not really interested in debating the character of individual Babblers- I was just saying that feeling guilty about making fun of someone who sadly seemed to be "asking for it" when we also weren't aware of the full extent of his issues isn't productive.
Look, it's natural to feel guilt when somebody dies who you didn't have a 100% positive relationship with, even if you never met them in person. I just don't think it's a flame that needs to be fanned. If anything, one of the takeaways should be the importance of normalizing frank discussions of these types of issues and even more importantly, encouraging folks with these issues to seek help. It sounds like Adrian got this feedback but tragically only after it was too late (and also got diagnosed relatively late as well, as Paul pointed out)
