Link up and Die

Consider this from Reuters Health:
The growing popularity of the Internet could lead to a rise in suicide pacts in which several people kill themselves together, a leading psychiatrist in Britain said on Friday.

Four men in Japan were found dead last month in what police suspect was the latest in a series of such pacts that have claimed dozens of lives in the past two years.

Sundararajan Rajagopal, a psychiatrist at St Thomas's Hospital in London, fears it could be the first sign of a growing trend because the Web gives people access to others who think along the same lines.
Could this be what happened to the DNC on November 2?
