...but not their life.

Paul Tilley, the ECD of DDB/Chicago, apparently took his own life Friday night. [AdAge, Adweek] There has been all sorts of conversation on Twitter about whether a Feb. 18 post on the anonymous ad agency gossip blog AgencySpy was at all to blame.

A long time ago, I saw a quote from Wonkette herself that changed my blogging:

[I]t's OK to ruin someone's day but not their life.

The intensity of our industry is not proportional to its importance. Play hard, but play fair. Life is short. My heart goes out to Tilley's family.
