SMH Pull Erroneous Story About Gamer Suicide

Nice to know that the SMH will actually take action when someone points out that one of their web page's front page stories is full of errors.

This whole scenario was shocking and sad, we don't need the media hyping it up and distorting the facts.

Your posting
http://smh.com.au/news/games/gamer-webcasts-his-own-suicide/
2006/01/19/1137553695846.html
contains a number of very serious errors.

Firstly, his nickname was Kuja, not Kudjo; but more
seriously, Mitchell did not broadcast himself over the internet via a
webcam. No forum members thinking he was joking, no rambling for six
hours. This is a complete fabrication.

I think you should take down this story immediately and post a
correction.
