There's a woman on the news right now being interviewed about dangerous mixing of multiple pills for weight loss. She did it without a prescription, didn't tell her doctor, and didn't read the directions or safety info with the drugs. Instead of focusing on this moron NOT talking to her doctor and combining epilepsy meds with online-purchased diet pills to lose weight, they're talking about the doctors and drug companies, and treating her like an unfortunate victim.
Just because someone is capable of using the internet, should the be absolved of responsibility for things like this just because they're too stupid to think about the consequences?
In my opinion, no one is to blame but the idiot who took the pills herself. I agree - a victim she is not.

That's my opinion also. There is a reason they have warning labels, people. She is just a victim of her own stupidity.

IMO, personal responsibility becomes a thing of the past immediately when someone thinks they can sue for a large sum of money. They don't care how stupid they look in the mean time, they see themselves laughing all the way to the bank just a skip down the road. Sadly, because it costs so much to sue someone, many companies that get blamed for things like this will settle out of court and she will still get her payday, instead of the neon blinking idiot sign that she deserves. We have programed people into thinking that you can get rich fast and easy and to a degree, it's not that far off base. I wonder how many 'slip and falls' are actual accidents and how many are planned strategically for the best camera shots.
