One minutes of silence. Anakkin has left us once again. Though this time, for good.

I'm sorry to annonuce to you all, that Anakkin is not returning. If circumstances has allowed it, he is already dead.

He decided to commit suicide on the 22nd of August, which is the day after he returned to his military service. The reason to this, is that his life was being torn apart by his military duty. I, personally, do believe that he's seen and done many terrible things during his time in the military.

He informed me of his suicide plan just before he left for the military on the 21st.

He's third last thing he ever said to me (query message on the IRC), was a note to the MBN community, which reads:
Quote:

I suggest we hold one minute of silence, and wish Anakkin that he will rest in peace.

And no. I'm not kidding.
Secondly, I'd like to excuse for possible oddness of this thread. I'm extremely tired, and I should really go to sleep. I really just had to post this, before I went to sleep.

I'm sorry for our loss.
Thank you.

We're trying to find out whether he really did it. I refuse to feel terrible before I find out. (I already sort of do, though...)

I am desperately trying to find out more, if you can help, please do.

His name is David Guerin or דוד גרא (http://forum.magicball.net/showpost....postcount=2079)

Here's CB's log http://jakob.alminde.org/.anakkinlog

I talked to Homeless and according to him Anakin did not mention suicide.

For fuck's sake, let's work on this and find out what happened.

Anakin, either dead or alive, you were a great friend to me back in the days. I really miss those days. I was planning on establishing a greater contact with you while you were back from duty, but unfortunetly I was not there at that time. However, you did get ahold of me before you left.. for whatever you left, Israel or... At that time I didn't have a clue it could be the last time I would ever speak to you. I wish I had talked to you more that day, we had so much more to talk about.

Anakin, David, I hope with all my heart that you are still alive. Though, if this has really happened, I must respect and accept your choice.

Now, people, let's try and trace Anakin with all we've got. We need to confirm this. We cannot fully believe this until we've got 100% confirmation.

Holy fuck his convo with CB is scarily sincier. Allow me to say the following -
If this is a joke, I can say we will jointly kill you for making us feel bad anie

If this is serious, yet you havnt done it yet, then TALK with us, and others, and dont do it. Seriously man, after every period of difficulty theres a period of ease, regardless of what your life quality is like at the moment it could be a whole different world tomorrow if you really want to turn it out that way.
If you have done it already.... then ill save my words for when i really believe it. I hope you dont do anything silly man, cause your a cool guy, and it aint worth wasting your life like that, and we like you!

Morshem, pick up a phone book, and call people with his last name. Dosn't matter if theyre the right people the first time, untill you getto someone who does now him. Internet suicidal notes SHOULD be taken seriously, because Anakin may well have been serious. Morshem, if you manage to get into contact with anyone related to him (make sure they know who your talking about, explain some of his attributes clearly), ask them of his health (if he's fine, apologise but explain he spoke of suicide on the internet, and close the phone, dosnt matter if you look stupid, you did your job. Just make it clear in some way that he made a list of worrying suicidal messages).

I wonder, but could you call the army up and ask them if he has come back for service?

I think his family is in Switzerland now, so I don't know if he has any relatives in Israel.

I personally believe theres no harm in trying. Also, seeing as he has to go back for military service, im sure his family would have had plans to return as well, at least with him.

This is fucked up. Is it certain that it is really him @ IRC?
Btw CB, your part of the conversation is odd.

This may not be April 1st, but I may suspect CrazyBee is still joking. One alibi: There is no such name as Anakkin. He even put that name with double K in the quote.

Either that, or he doesn't know that Anakin is really spelled like that.

In IRC he uses this, because apparently "Anakin" is always taken.

Anyway, if this is a joke, it's a really disgusting one.

Same,but why would he do that when he himself made it clear he cant stand people who try to gain sympathy. I just dont see a motive.

But, for the sake of it probably being true, were the only people who know? (Unless it really did happen, then his parents/family/friends would know). So I believe we should just make sure.

Anakin, if this aint true, please make it clear. We'll be lineant

The problem with these matters is that it is almost as hard to believe he would joke about this, as it is hard to believe it is real.

Perhaps he was drunk?

I read the log, and there's something going wrong. It's listed that 'Medur' changes his name to 'Analkin', and this Analkin writes the last messages. Something.... won't fit....

Medur wouldn't pull shit like this.

01:18:17-!- Analkin [~fsf@194-53.0-85.cust.bluewin.ch] has quit [goodbye forever]

That's not medur's hostname either.

And why would Anakin be under a Swiss IP, if he's supposed to be in Israel now?

I can tell you all that this cannot be a joke from CrazyBee's side. I know him very well IRL and he would never do such a thing like this. If it is a joke, it is indeed on Anakins part.

As far as I know, and judging from what CrazyBee told me, Medur and Anakkin was messing around with nicknames. That is why he had the nick Medur for awhile. Also, it seems like he was currently under a Swiss IP since he was still in Switzerland by that time, and was just about to leave.

Hell, I really hope Anakkin was just joking around about taking his own life.

If he is still alive for some reason, I promise to go visit him in Switzerland as soon as he comes back from his military duty. But currently, I have very very bad feelings about this. Something tells me this will end up nasty. :/

That day (the 20th) Anakin and me joked changing nicks for a while. I changed my nick to Silverfish, Anakin changed his to Medur and somebody (I don't remember who) changed his own to Anakin.

Yet, the Anakin in the log is the real one:

1) Anakin (then disguised as Medur) changed his nick to Analkin because his real one was taken.

The nick-changing-thing only occured AFTER the conversation previous to the one where a nick change can be seen.

The real Anakin had thus already talked about suicide and he was the only one who knew about this; how could an impostor bring that subject to CrazyBee?

2) The hostnames prove all conversations were real. Anakin was the only person with a swiss hostname to ever enter the #LBA channel.

-

Morshem, the last conversation occured on the 20th.
Anakin was in Switzerland for a three week vacation. He presumably returned to Israel on the 20th or on the 21st.

There're many ways to prove the vacation Anakin was the real one. We don't even have to go to IRC: check the MBN, or his last.fm page.

-

Just to clear some things up:
If this is a joke, Anakin is the one behind it.
For god's sake I wouldn't joke with something as serious as this.
Anyone who knows me remotely well knows I wouldn't do it.
CrazyBee wouldn't either, because he knows the consequences of this would be very serious for him.

So Anakin is the only one who could do it. However, I can't believe he'd make so many people worried, bring concern to so many friends just to have a laugh. It just makes no bloody sense.

This is real. This is fucking real and our focus should be on finding out whether he's alive. I really thought of him as a friend and I don't know what to think of all this shit.

-

Now, I believe what happened was this:

Anakin decided to commit suicide. He didn't want any interference, and he wanted the forum to know what had happened to him, so he revealed it to someone who he knew would not try to stop him.

Had he talked to Lenny or me, I'm sure we would've tried to talk him out of it in any ways possible, and we sure wouldn't have kept quiet for three days.

Anakin is/was very intelligent and slightly manipulated CB to fulfill his purpose. This sounds just like him.

-

So again, I believe this is real, and the most important thing right now is FINDING OUT WHETHER HE'S STILL ALIVE.
