I wonder how you will live your irrelevant lives knowing that your stupid actions induced an extraordinary, brilliant and ETHICAL human being like Aaron H. Swartz to commit suicide. Whatever the mental condition he had was only a vulnerability to toxic creatures and institutions like you.

That should mean something.
