RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

I'm sorry, the message can be as true and valid and amazing as the author had intended it to be, but frothing at the mouth and tossing insults is not the way to draw adults' attention.

This shit belongs in a journal, not in the open internet where people can read it and then claim that, oh, how should youngsters be able to drive and drink if they can't even express themselves civilly?

Internet celebrities aside; the reason I disagree is that it isn't from adults that change is going to come, but from like minded people and the students themselves. Also, there's merit to galens rant. Fuck what the adults are saying. They aren't listening to reason, they are trying to keep their power. They aren't going to give up their power just because we write a couple of logical arguments. I mean shit, we've written and talked reason for over a decade, and hardly anything has changed.

oh and also No one has any rights. We're free, rights create invisible restrictions. But we live in a society where the majority accepts rights to be true.

O_O
Wow, I'm disgusted that people like those mentioned exist......fucking disgusting. What where these people thinking when they thought about having kids?! That,"Hey, someday, lets throw them into a camp merely because of their age!"

This has left me feeling angry and depressed and I kind of feel bad now for being 17. I know, that's stupid, I just get like that.

I'm so glad my parents are normal, sane, nice people that understand kids are people None

EDIT: that was great against those kinds of people though.

RE: Single greatest rant ever

Putting pro-drug/alcohol stuff in there decreases the credibility even while it's a solid rant other than that.
