Dharun Ravi was a stupid kid who made a terribly stupid mistake without realizing the ramifications of his actions. As if none of you have ever done anything stupid or prankish to your friends or someone you didn't like at that age? Wait! I said "didn't like", not "hate". And who is to say Ravi hated or didn't like his roommate. He'll serve his 30 days, terrified every moment of them, I'm sure. Hopefully, he will be unmolested in that county jail and then start his life, even with the stigma that he have to deal with for the rest of his own life. And hopefully, he, as well as others, will realize that this kind of behavior is unnaceptable.

As for you people screaming that he should have served time in prison, that he should be raped in prison, etc., give us all a break. Again, as if none of you have ever done anything like this in your past, computer or not?

Please, stop the hatred. There are clearly more questions than answers. It is a sad fact that this young man committed suicide regardless of the reason. The invasion of privacy committed by the defendant here is despicable. Regardless of the sexual orientation of the partners, nobody has the right to film and post such personal material without permission. Hate only fuels hate. Lets try some education, empathy and compassion. This is a very sad story no matter how you look at it.

To respond to all the worthless and ignorant comments I have seen here already:

1. It was his dorm room, his life. Having "buttsex" as you eloquently put it isn't contagious. I'm sure his roommate had straight sex there, why couldn't Tyler do what he wanted? And check your facts. Him and his date kissed, nothing more.

2. Ravi invaded his privacy. Would you like to be videotaped doing something intimate and then it broadcast?? I'm guessing no.

3. Suicide is definitely not a rational choice but that's beside the point. Ravi broke the law by invading privacy, that's what he got the 30 days for. Yes, the media has focused on the fact that Tyler killed himself, but that's independent of the point.

4. This sends the message bullying isn't ok, and it isn't. It's 30 days he's losing, Tyler has lost his life. Maybe in the future, a life will be saved because Ravi won't act so ignorant.

There had to have been many more instances of bullying in this young mans life in order for him to take his life. He had to have been depressed beyond most peoples comprehension. But to solely blame another young man (who acted completely idiotic by video-taping what was clearly a personal situation) is not 100% fair. YES, bullying over the years has gotten completely out of control and hopefully by serving 30 days and probation for what he did might actually teach others to know that there are actually consequences for stupid things you do to other innocent people. NO ONE should be bullied for their sexual preferences just as no one should be bullied for being handicapped or for liking a particular music or clothing style. This is a horrible situation and I truly hope this young man learns from his behavior...

Suicide isn't generally a "rational" choice. Impossible to draw straight line from one singular event to a suicide

I know I'm in the minority here but if the victim hadn't committed suicide, I highly doubt that there would have been any criminal proceeding at all. And, in the end, the only person who can ever be held responsible for a suicide is the person who commits the act.Edit
