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.

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.

Julian Assange arrested

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11937110
Quote:The founder of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police.

The 39-year-old Australian denies allegations he sexually assaulted two women in Sweden.

Scotland Yard said Mr Assange was arrested on a European Arrest Warrant by appointment at a London police station at 0930 GMT.

He is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court later.

Mr Assange is accused by the Swedish authorities of one count of unlawful coercion, two counts of sexual molestation and one count of rape, all alleged to have been committed in August 2010.

Re: Julian Assange arrested

Not that I am for his imprisonment, because what he did was awesome. But I think he may in fact have sexually assaulted two women....and for lack of better words: thats not cool =(

The rape charges seem to come at a convenient time.

Damn I put american instead of sweden.

It was sarcasm I of course believe they are lying but when you control the courts and I love the use of the word traitor.

Trust me I am never one to overlook government corruption, and when I heard it was sexual assault they were arresting him for...well I thought it was just a pretty desperate scheme. But the women in question whom are accusing him of rape; they are quite convincing.

Its important to get people off a pedestal.

Re: Julian Assange arrested

I hope they realize that putting Assange under arrest isn't going to change a thing. He is not vital to keeping Wikileaks alive. The people keeping up the website will continue to add information, and with the support of the world, it will be nearly impossible to take down Wikileaks or spread information from it without having to completely deny users access to the internet.

As for the rape charges, if he actually did it, then he deserves just as much jail time as the next rapist. However, I have a feeling his charges are going to be blown out of proportion just to get him into jail faster, and for a longer period.

Re: Julian Assange arrested

There's over a hundred mirror websites up that have the same exact thing too... ^

The reason it's being hosted on wikileaks.ch is because they had to change their hosting over to the pirate party to continue their business.
