    Regarding "Jason Windsor"

    Hello, my name is Michelle Ackerman, Tommy or Thomas was my step son. You don't know me but you my have known Tom by his screen name "Jason Windsor." Well, he's no longer with us.

    For the past 5 months Thomas was becoming very reserved, very distant. I rarely saw him eat and he'd stay up until odd hours into the night with the lights in his room on, hunched over a sketch pad. He would just stare at blank pages for so long, with the pencil point still touching the paper where he had broken the tip off. He didn't have a girlfriend and he stopped hanging out with his friends. He said he didn't care anymore if they came around the house and once he screamed at me, telling me to not let one of them in when they came by. It was really hard to see him like that, rocking back and forth on the floor, in the corner of his room with half a broken piece of charcoal in his fist. His knuckles would turn, so white.

    His father had divorced his mother 7 years ago and I welcomed him into my home like his was my own son, god bless him. Last November his father passed, heart failure. Tom seemed to take it pretty well, he tried to keep active, he would go to the park trails with his friends and ride his bike. He started going out with his friends less and less lately, he started watching a lot of Pixar movies. When he got home from school he would just go straight up stairs to his room and shut the door, without saying a word.

    I confronted him about it 3 months ago, we had a huge fight, I decided to make him go to see somebody, a specialist. He said he didn't want people to think he was some weirdo that would shoot up a shopping mall or an emu, or emo or something like that. I didn't understand why he was so angry when I asked him about what was going on. I drove him myself to 5 therapy sessions, he fought me before every trip into town to see the doctor.

    I asked him if it was helping once, he just told me that the doctor was too old to understand the world today, that nobody would understand. I found him on this website once at 2:30 in the morning, I was very curious to know what he was absorbed in, why he wasn't in bed like he should have been. He told me he had found people who finally would understand. I had no idea at the time what he was talking about.

    The note he left said that the world was against artists, that they were freaks or something and there would never be a place for "his" kind in the world.

    God, I hope you helped Tommy at least find some peace. Thank you for being a friend to him.

    M Ackerman

    Gee, he was posting only a little while ago, too. I was reading posts, I don't recall saying anything. My prayers are with you, and I do hope he found peace.

    I probably shouldn´t stick my nose out here, but I have to say what possibly the majority here is thinking. This post is a fake. The guy was bummed because he got banned and wanted some sort of revenge.

    Why would a grieving stepmother take the time to get a user login here and post this? To thank the community? I don´t buy it one bit.

    The incredability of that stands for itself, but also the fact that the language is very similar, and the attitude of said person seals the deal for me.

    Sorry for being cynical, but I think it is despiccable to fake such things, and I need to say so.

    Jason, you're about as good a writer as you are an artist.
    Say goodbye to "Jason Windsor," "Mrs. Ackerman," and "pencil.pusher," everybody.

    I have to admit, I hoped that person was actually telling the truth. o_O I didn't want to think someone was going to do something so pathetic, so I put my words down JUST in case. -_-

    Wow, doing something like this is the worst. I actually took the post seriously. To whoever wrote this - aren't you ashamed of yourself? Asshole, seriously. Think about what you're doing to people who actually have the slightest bit of sensibility left.

    That's really sick.

    I could tell by the end of the first paragraph that you were a fake (rocking back and forth sentence called bullshit). And it amazes that you would stoop that low to attempt to have people feel bad for you getting banned off a Internet forum. This is insult to those who actually are suicidal or have killed themselves over the same problems you pathetically made up.

    You did stupid shit to get banned. Get over it, move on with your life, stop with the cheap tricks, and grow a conscience.

    Just as sec guys, I mean, I can see where you all are coming from, but you ever think its possible that this could be a cry for help of some sort? I mean, yeah, its low to come on here and fake something like that, but maybe this is the type of stuff he is going through and this is his way of telling us? I know I often tend to be one of the worst assholes around here, but I think that on this one we might want to figure things out a bit more before beating him while he's down over something like this.

    Nope.

    Maybe a cry for attention but that's it.

    So, let me get this straight, the art student who used intelligent coherent words, reaching out for improvement and then back handing our advice because he didn't want to spend the time away from his video games just killed himself because he couldn't take it anymore? Yeah that sure sounds real.

    Go friggin draw for once.

    Superbly low-class.

    Tomy/Jason, be aware that your future employers read these forums. Don't get yourself blacklisted, m'kay?
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Thread started on the 14th, he's reincarnated today (17th)

    could it be that ... on the third day he rose again, he ascended to Massive Black where he sits at the right hand of Jason Manley. He will come again to judge the active and the lazy.

    I believe in the artistic spirit, the artistic Massive Black, the communion of artists, the forgiveness of lensflares, the resurrection of the banned and of creativity everlasting,

    Amen.

    didnt you get the memo, Carl? there was a mixer thrown to welcome Windsor down at St Pete's on tuesday. water became wine, bread and fish aplenty, David brought the mood with some A-class harp, Moses parted the crowds with his staff to get to the snacks table before they ran out of buffalo wings, Noah managed to block the toilet and flood the place... it was a blast! dont worry, you'll get an invite to the next one

    I think this is sad...
    Such a pitiful behavior can only be inspired by a lot of sadness and hate, this is the best possibility? Otherwise it's a dirty minded act, and it's worse to my eyes...
    I think this story do not deserve to be discussed anymore, because irony could make him worse than he is already...

    'Hello, my name is Michelle Ackerman, Tommy or Thomas was my step son. You don't know me but you my have known Tom by his screen name "Jason Windsor." Well, he's no longer with us.'

    Kinda gave you away. Dont give the plot of your story away in the first paragraph, save it for the end for an extra punch.


    anyway, GFTO.
