i dont know whether or not ramseames thought you were cirticising it or just posting it out of general interest, but it's a pretty 'hot topic' at the moment, and i guess people are starting to get defensive or whatever.
i mean, as a 19y/o student (ie prime demographic for this nonsense) i know plenty of people who've been doing it, and have done it once myself, but the worst that has happened is people throwing up. all the controversy surrounding necknominate stuff is pretty ridiculous. people have always played stupid drinking games, and some people have always paid the price for taking it too far or doing it somewhere stupid like next to a river or train track or whatever. i'm sure people have probably died or been seriously hurt after playing kings/ring of fire and other similar stuff, the only difference with necknominate is that people are recording themselves doing it, which gives the media a chance to jump all over it like a bad rash. i won't deny that necknominate is stupid, but for most people it's just gonna be a bit of fun, and not really any different to what most people were doing anyway, but now it happens to include a name and a camera.
