I think the depressing thread should be locked/deleted. It seems to me to be a place for people to post suicidal ramblings, not sure that's really appropriate for the site.
I happen to agree with you about some members really posting way too depressive things. And some posts do scare me a bit. Maybe a split?

I guess the depressing thread encourages negative thoughts more than anything and such thoughts can affect others and their mood, which I can see as a potential problem. I still think people should have a place to air their grievances, but displaying it in a public thread seems quite redundant as, like said above, it's much more appropriate to handle such manners in a private fashion as this helps both parties a hell of a lot more.

I think the word "depressing" leads to this more than anything, so maybe a change in title?

It's not people airing their grievances that I find a big issue, it's the fact that it's full of people saying they want/plan to kill themselves that I think it becomes really inappropriate. I agree maybe a different name would help, who knows though.
Yeah I see what you mean. Honestly I don't want to say "don't air your grievances" but I think it's much more appropriate to handle it in private conversations and such as suicide is a very... very personal issue and term shouldn't be used lightly. Yeah and I guess seeing suicidal thoughts in a rather friendly discussion section isn't exactly healthy for the forum.

Clearly, the solution is a ZD Festivus Thread.
