I think there are two different issues here. The quantum suicide issue is
whether the quantum suicide experiment can actually give evidence for MWI.
I basicly agree with Jacques here and think the answer is no.

The quantum immortality issue is basicly a matter of definition. Should
someone consider himself immortal if every possible future version of
himself exists but dwindles out in measure as subjective time passes?
(And of course it has to dwindle out, otherwise the total would add up
to infinity.) Does it really matter? If so, in what way?
