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.

He has a point. He's not saying it because you're a kid, but because you're on their forum.

Wouldn't teachers benefit from a student's perspective?
I would love this in context, but I doubt it will help!

Well it's pretty much bullshit, if we go and try to argue on their website, they could just ban us without a proper reason or just ignore us BECAUSE we're "kids" Noo

Kids? Seriously, that's insulting.

How would he like it if he came here and we said "No, I'm saying that your opinion doesn't matter because this is a students' forum and you're a teacher. I think you should post with your own age group."

Probably not quite as bad, because 'teacher' doesn't sound like a derogatory term when used in a sentence like that. So it can go both ways, but it's not quite the same both ways.

Re: The most retarded thing I've ever read.

Indeed, the opinions of "kids" mean nothing is a very redarded and disgusting viewpoint, but whats even more disgusting is that this kid of idea is just all too common.

Re: The most retarded thing I've ever read.

I'll agree with youvebeenthunderstruck however I'm offended with the use of the word 'kid' displaying ageist attitudes.

However, while they don't have the right to zip your mouth, don't expect them to listen or consider it since its their forum.

If its public in general, I would have clocked their face.

Just because he's on their forum doesn't mean his opinion doesn't matter.

Re: The most retarded thing I've ever read.

I guess I can kinda, just kinda understand why the teacher would say that seeing as how it is a teachers' forum, but the fact that the teacher dismisses dissenting arguments just because they came from a "kid" makes him a retard and a pussy. Ten bucks says that he wouldn't have said that if BMP agreed with what they were saying.
