threatening to kill yourself if you don't get what you want always seems so counter productive to me.

If the target of the blackmail doesn't comply, you kill yourself and their problem goes away after all...

 

Of course most such persons never follow through on their threats to kill themselves, and this being the internet you'd never know if they did or not anyway.

Even if they disappear from sl and you never see them again, that most likely just means they created a new account...

 

Mute them, maybe file an AR (blackmail is a TOS violation after all), if you own land put them on the banlist, and that's it

Obviously, I can only quote my own experiences, but having recently lost a friend to suicide I can say, there was no warnings, he never threatened it, he never told anyone how low he was feeling, he was just here today and gone tomorrow. That was the hardest part to deal with, wondering if I had missed some kind if glaring sign. The Nurse at the hospital said 90% of the time if someone makes a big song and dance threaten to commit suicide, it never happens, that person is crying out for help. Not sure how true that is, but my friend never said a word.

Your friend doesn't have a good grasp on boundaries, or personal privacy.  Why in the hell would some kook on the internet's MOM have her phone number?!  

 

Geez louise, people bring this drama onto themselves.

why put this here?.. don't make sense

Where do YOU think it should be put?

I don't think these forums have a "Suicide & Blackmail" section.

You didn't understand the question.  It's not about what section to put your post. 

 

It's WHY did you feel the need to bring this nonsense to the forum?  What is your purpose of posting your friend's clueless behavior?   Or, of the unhinged blackmailer/would-be suicidal person?

 

Your friend could have filed an abuse report on the person, but instead they chose to play along.  So, it's really not your business.
