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.

... that's disturbing.

Rebelnerd Wrote:and i don't think africa pours it's money into aids cures. in fact, i think it's the opposite. some tribes still believe that the only way to cure aids is to have sex with somebody who doesn't have it so it will leave them. the governments of most third world african countries like sudan and the congo don't give shit about their people, in fact they've comitted mass genocide against them for years.

well, judging by the amount of corruption that we DO hear about (everyone guesses there's a lot more that doesn't get uncovered), i suspect much of our taxes goes toward financing new cars and mansions for the politicians and all their little friends.

and yeah, apparently lots of people with AIDS believe that they'll be cured if they have sex with a virgin. so they go rape babies. Grindteeth

BigWolf Wrote:Also, next time you're listening to your radio and you hear a commercial, listen for some sort of background sound. A cell phone ringer, a siren, something that will grab your attention. Radio commericalists know that people practically ignore those commercials, so as underhanded as they are, they add these little sounds to grab your attention so you'll listen a little more, then while you listen for sirens ot your cell phone, your mind takes in their advertising subconciously.

i don't listen to radio anymore, but i remember those from when i used to. and it's not like you can mute the ads like you can with TV, if you can't hear it, you don't know when the ads are over :(

that genocide, i had no idea that was happening, and i live closer to Sudan than you guys do... Uhoh

i think SOMEONE should intervene, not necessarily the US though, because of how they tend to handle things like that Razz
