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.

Politicians (AKA Scumbags) wants to create law in Brazil that makes violent video....

games criminal.

"It is not the first time this issue is being addressed in the country, but now it can get really serious, it was approved with the Constitution and Justice Commission of a law that makes it a crime to sell, import or distribution of games that government considers violent or offensive.

To make matters worse the law is poorly explained, which would allow almost any game to be banned in this country, because it does not say exactly what is forbidden, making room for different interpretations.

The law, which now only needs to be approved by the Senate to be worth, is causing outrage companies and gamers all over the country, because once again the politicians are playing with a theme that know, trying to create an unreasonable law, for games are regarded as cultural products and could not be prohibited. The government could only advise the population on the consumption of games.

"We also need to consider two factors: a constraint in this way would constitute a violation of freedom of expression and also open the door to even more piracy of games," said Association President Commercial, Industrial and Cultural Games."

I've said it before and I'll say it again.
Politicians are opportunistic mother fuckers who are only good for taking a bullet to the face.

Why would they even want to do this? What's the purpose? Violent video games never cause a person to become violent themselves unless they're fucked in the head. That law is incredibly retarded and unnecessary. These politicians probably haven't ever played these games themselves anyways, so IMO they shouldn't be able to control it like this.

It's my country. Sometimes, Brazil does good things (Not saying that criminalizing homophobia is a true way to go) and does shit like this.

sarcasm? I can't really tell and you're new so you could be the "bomb dem sand niggurs" type
But if you were serious, it was just some guy online. I was browsing through the comments on some war related story and there were a lot of stupid comments and this one shined (shone?) out through all the bullshit.

No, this is Patrick.
