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.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

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. My contact details are here.

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.

God doesn't exist in the classroom. Therefore you can't be like god. It's impossible.

You should definitely tell him that. That would fuck him up.

You should probably not fool with his religious beliefs, and respect his self-worship.

Re: my teacher called himself god

i dont beleive in god anyway. never mind in the classroom.

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
-Ben Franklin

Re: my teacher called himself god

He just made a joke. It wasn't that funny, but all the man did was make a joke comparing his power over the students with that of God. I wouldn't make a big deal out of it, and it barely even merits a discussion.

Re: my teacher called himself god

No, you happen to be obnoxious. The words are highly dissimilar, I suggest you check a dictionary next time you make a post.

Moderators, please move this into the voices in your head forum, or school talk or something that isn't a philosophical discussion

Re: my teacher called himself god

Sounds like something my history teacher would say. Normally I'm not one for "OMGF, my math techer is evil!!!!!!!!!!!"-type posts, but that guy needs to die in a fire.

Even if you actually aren't, tell him you're an atheist.
