Terribly sad, if this were no accident it is tragic this lady felt this was her only way to end what ever she was struggling with. Thoughts not only with the family and friends but also that poor train driver and anyone who was there on the train/platform. RIP.

We were on the train, when this tragedy took place, the guard came through the train and his face said it all. We were all shocked once the train got into Trowbridge and were told what had happened. Pray for the family of the deceased, the poor driver and emergency services that dealt with this incident. May God's peace and mercy be upon the Dear Ladies family and Friends at this sad time. Let's all vow not too take life for granted.

So sad for everyone involved. Hubby is a train driver but thankfully hes only had one incident but that was a dog and he said that was bad enough. Thankfully although he thought the dog had been ran over it mustve moved and his engine just clipped the back of him and he was fine after a trip to the vets. Hubby however took a few more days to recover. Rip whoever you are x

Crass and insensitive maybe, but hardly offensive. Being offended is subjective - what one person finds offensive, another doesn't, so who decides? and in my opinion being offended on someone elses behalf is ridiculous.

What I find offensive, however, is the idea that should we read something we don't like we must go running to the police.

It's not a case of being offended "on someone's behalf" (what an odd statement!) but by what you read, see or hear. It is subjective and does affect each individual differently. But to say that it's ridiculous to be offended by what happens to/is said to/is done to another is in itself ridiculous - hopefully that's not what you meant. This lowlife eejit was making a remark to cause offense. He succeeded. The remark was removed. Job done. Not one for the police, though, you're right in that respect.

If you feel that calling a lowlife eejit - (who behaves like a lowlife eejit simply to be as offensive as your average lowlife eejit) a lowlife eejit - offensive - feel free to campaign to have my remarks stricken from the records. If you could then point me in the direction of anyone YOU consider to be a lowlife eejit I will endeavour to ensure any future references to "lowlife eejits" are made only in relation to those people.
If you don't like the use of the term lowlife eejit, and think it odd - I will try to care a little more than I do currently. I may not succeed.
To all those I have offended with the use of the term "lowlife eejit" I can assure you that it was aimed only at lowlife eejits. To any lowlife eejit, (inc. the original poster to whom I made the original remark ) who may have found my remark offensive - stop behaving like lowlife eejits.

Not only is being offended subjective but offence can be taken when it's not meant. How do you know "the lowlife eejit" as you call him/her was intending to cause offence? It may have been just an inappropriately placed dig at First Great Western, which hardly qualifies him/her as being lowlife.

I wonder if the person who complained to the WT was personally offended by the comment. If so, then so what? Or did he think the comment would be offensive to those directly involved? If so, then he is claiming something to be offensive on behalf of someone else, as well as dubbing himself an authority on how people feel.

"rip my dear" (??) - the poor woman is deceased - why address a remark directly to her?
The majority were involved in a discussion - "was a particular comment offensive, or simply crass and insensitive?" - and the impact of such remarks on people SUCH AS the family of the deceased, and those reading these comments.

This is not true you may have imagined it. I've seen about 1 complainer of grammar lately and this person was the subject of ridicule.
Also, university is no guarantee of good english.

It is not about emotional correctness. What seems to be an abject failure is that there has been a loss of life. The person that died was a daughter of someone, perhaps she was a mum herself.We just do not know. There should be discussion as to how we can reach those in society that are vulnerable and socially excluded. This is real and we need to accept situations can lead to tragic consequences. If only people could find someone to confide in.Maybe their lives would be different, as might ours if we listen and hear the needs of others.

If only people could find someone to confide in.Maybe their lives would be different, as might ours if we listen and hear the needs of others.
Accidents happen - regardless of the attempts to "iron out" all risks in life with the use of the law.
Suicide also happens. DESPITE attempts by families, friends, professionals - some people are so lost to any kind of assistance we just can't reach them - they succeed in ending their lives.
And if you'd check your sneering condecension for just one moment - you'd see that there ARE forums, think-tanks, discussion groups etc., etc., working DAILY to try to find answers/medication/b
etter support for so many "at risk" groups within society.
(Do you have ANY idea many of the posters here are connected to these groups, or indeed to the lady (or her family) that died? An obvious NO)
In your OWN words: "This is real and we need to accept situations can lead to tragic consequences"
You appear to be the only poster here that can't. The only poster that believes we should feel guilty for our lack of maudlin angst. Does it make you feel better to point the finger of condemnation at strangers? It shouldn't. It's ridiculous.
"None of you were on that train. I was and will not forget the experience"
It's not actually about you.
Your presence on the train does not make you an expert in the matters of accidents, suicides and psychology.

With all of the ones going on about what is correct or not, a woman died at the end of all this and i do agree with the person on the train, it cant be nice to be on a train where someone had died as a result of being hit by it, the poor train driver must be traumatised, all of you making these nonsense comments have seem to of forgotten the tragedy behind this,i hope the ladys family are being given support and also the people witnessing this especially the train driver, RIP unknown lady ****

my memory is perfectly fine trowbridge52. surely it is not necessary to keep referring to an event to show that you have not forgotten it especially within a short timeframe of 7 days.
You have not accused the WT of forgetfulness despite a week's absence of information.

A comments section where sad people argue over who's grammer is far superior and if your grasp of the english lanuage is not quite University level, you might as well not comment or face complete ridicule from pompus/stuck up commentators. R.I.P to the woman involved in this tradegy.
No - I've looked twice and can't find it. "A comments section where sad people argue over who's grammer is far superior and if your grasp of the english lanuage is not quite University level" I just can't find those comments. And I will not ridicule your comment.
HA, the whole thread is full of people correcting ones comments. Including yourself, ""rip my dear" (??) - the poor woman is deceased - why address a remark directly to her?" That is you correcting ones grammer, no???


And for you to respond in that sarcastic manner, did i touch on a nerve??? Which one are you then? Stuck up or pompus???

In today's world we should always be there for the vulnerable, homeless and
the less fortunate. We all need to show compassion. The lady that took her own life must have reached a crisis point but we will never know what her reasons were. All we can do is reach out to those people, that are going through more than they can cope with and try and be there for them. It's not enough to be wise after the event. Do all you can for those suffering around you. Try and get help for them. Please don't post negative comments. Imagine what her family are going through.

Where are the negative comments?
The only tasteless remark made was removed.
No - we're not all full of maudlin faux sympathy - that doesn't mean that no-one here cares about the desperation behiind her actions.
