Of course he'll quickly abandon that "make an example" shebang once his suitability to being a judge gets scrutinised...

How could they turn down so much money?

Remember how I used to have this habit of ticking almost everyone off?

As in, everyone besides Yuu?

Well, now a compatriot of mine of DeviantArt's gotten around to thinking the same about himself, though it's not true. None of us over there can seem to get through to him, and his family situation is just unacceptable. His stepfather pulled a gun on him once while the poor guy was in a fit of despair from being used and abused by his mother.

I don't know how I can help with this guy's trust issues, or if I even can... but I was hoping some of you might have some advice. The more any of us over there tries to help, it seems, the more he withdraws. A couple members of the group actually lost their patience with all of that today. It wasn't pretty. Now he's gone and posted this poll: http://cqmorrell.deviantart.com/journal/poll/2970589/.

I know I probably can't do much, so I'm asking you. What can I do to help?
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Be there for him. In any storm of sufficient strength, it can be hard to see more than a few inches in front of yourself. The same can happen if you have severe low self-worth, or when stuck in a depressive state of mind/life. It can have a blinding effect. The best thing you can do to counteract the poison in him, is to simply be there for him however you can be. That alone provides doubt to the mantra of "I'm worthless". It's impossible to force clarity and confidence on others, but they can learn it in time, if given a little backup. It's gonna be a long fight, but as long as he has a little backup, it'll be far more survivable.

You never pissed me off Gnoll. Not that I recall, anyway  ???
Not really much you can do, when people get like that. As Gauph said, be there for him, but that's all you can do, really. I would, however, tell him to get a hold of social services and report that twit stepfather of his for aforementioned gun pulling.
