It hit the headlines in 2007 when British man Kevin Whitrick, 42, committed suicide in devastatingly similar circumstances.The father of two logged onto an insults chatroom, as Gregory did on Christmas Day, and was goaded by members until he took his life. Software, also allows subscribers to video chat with up to 10 people for free and hosts thousands of free chat rooms.He had no idea where the Sutton man, from south London, lived and begged UK-base users of the internet forum to dial 999.But the chatroom administrator known as Throat Punch said his attempts were 'futile' as others simply watched the man die in front of their eyes.And the gamble has appeared to pay off for Mr Lerner financially however being the director of a company which has been at the centre of controversy cannot be easy.In 2007, internet safety charities blasted Pal Talk after a 42-year-old man from Telford, Shropshire, took his own life after being goaded by chatroom users.He is thought to have joined the chatroom in the early hours of Christmas Day but instead of speaking, as he usually did, he was silent.
Mr Whitrick was divorced and left behind two children. 'Sitting by watching people ignore requests to call police was truly futile.' Online contacts described Gregory, a regular to the site, as a 'lovely soul', but said the internet chatroom where you got to get insulted was 'not the place for him'.
