I had somewhat similar experience with Spoony. His uploads went to a halt and when I asked why, people told me that it is because of his bipolar. I felt sorry for him until I learned about his interactions with fans. Then some asshole shot a church in Texas and his reaction was something like "lol, God didn't save them" which killed any shred of sympathy I could've had for him.Not gonna lie
YandereDev. I used to look at videos on him and think "why won't people leave him alone? He just wants to make a game." It was until I decided to actually WATCH a video on him...
Except for Terry.Hello Spergatory!
To answer honestly and politely, none. I do not feel bad for a single person labelled as an lolcow on this site. People who make assholes of themselves on the public Internet are tailor-made to be laughed at and ridiculed.
Yeah I felt bad for him. I really hated how some people encouraged his more extreme schizo behavior. He needed serious help and his parents were too old and frail to provide it.The only person I felt bad for was Terry. Most lolcows suffer from some sort of mental illness, but it's such a light flavor that you can easily get help, but they refuse to do so. Terry on the other hand had something way worse, and he had people still trying to help him up to his death. Plus before his schizophrenia got worse the dude was fucking talented at coding, and it sucks to see such skill getting pushed aside because of something not his fault.
But Lord Elliot is still alive and modeling for Polo Red by Ralph Lauren .Not exactly what the thread is asking, but had Elliot Rodger just killed himself, I would have had a lot of sympathy for him and his struggles (Even though they are more like delusions).
However as soon as you harm someone else, especially people who had absolutely nothing to do with your problems, you lose all sympathy points what so ever. This also applies to William Atchison.
Fuck Randy Stair and the Columbine dudes though. They were just total irredeemable assholes regardless.
