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.

Ads In Schools

I think that can be easily turned into a very, very, bad thing.

I highly suggest Mobb Deep's albums The Infamous and Hell on Earth, if you have not listened to it yet.

Of course, they've got a captive audience, literally, so it was only a matter of time until they started with this shit. It's like that Channel One shit I have to deal with. It's bad enough I'm forced to watch it, but the news is so dumbed down and biased it's not even funny.

I guess since the entire point of the place is to rape kid's minds anyway, they figured "Why not?". Plus they sure could use that extra money to add in an electric fence and guard towers!

the thing i hate most, now put them together.

school and ad's. Ad's are so irrelevant, they ruin such great buildings and places.

No, it's not real. It says under: "Artist conception of future education" or something like that.

And even though I ride the bus to school, and it has some advertising, it by far not as severe as this one here.
And have you seen those statistics on how many ads children see on TV every year?! Damn this is just so messed up. Does your government have some sort of secret brainwashing agenda? Biggrin

True that. But I meant because there is such a large amount of advertisement, it must be driving you nuts. Also, my brother has started to believe in this whole "the world is run by some secret society which ages back several thousand years etc, and they use subliminal influences on you without you knowing".

So I was just skeptic.

Re: Ads In Schools

I already have ads in my school.

The Anarchist revolution is near! We will crush the evil government by drawing the Anarchy symbol on school desks, listening to alternative rock, watching Loose Change, and shouting:"Anarchy rules!!!".

Re: Ads In Schools

Excluding a yearbook, that is really bad.

What kind of ads?
