David Stanley, RIPChris | InformationLiberation
I'm not quite sure how to say this, but I've just received word long time InfoLib poster David Stanley aka Dave has reportedly passed. His girlfriend says he committed suicide two days ago on Wednesday, February 1st.
I didn't always understand his posts, but he loved the site and with 4204 comments he was our most prolific poster, he had a lot of friends who posted here as well.
I'm absolutely devastated by this news, he's been posting since 2007, he was posting just the other day on 1/19, I'm not really sure what to think...
RIP, Dave, I hope you're in a better place now, you will be missed!
- Chris, InfoLib
Update: Here's a poem in Dave's honor from FriendStacy:

poem for dave
threats and intimidation are the only weapons bullies have.
those threats only work to control and manipulate us if we become afraid.
it's all the same,
whether it's the government and their armies.
the bankers and their money.
the church and their divine punishment, hell, or karma.
the courts and their laws.
they demand obedience, OR ELSE!
only cowards could support a system based upon fear.
a system based upon threats and intimidation,
punishments and rewards,
a system designed to prevent people
from thinking for themselves
and making their own decisions.
it was real hard to talk about things
that disagreed with the mass mind-control propaganda,
the so-called "public opinion" created by media
and schools and churches
and all the other abusive institutions of societal control.
but dave wasn't afraid.
i'm not afraid anymore.
