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.

The News for Real Men

This isn't really a blog, but it seems like every time I make an actual blog I make five posts and them proceed to never update it again. It's a character defect, and I've just recently come to terms with it. In fact, admitting that I'm an awful blogger is rather liberating, and maybe in a few years I'll be able to finally admit that everyone else is stupid or that my friends are all assholes.

In the mean time, I figured I'd just keep all of you updated on current events (that's "news," for you rednecks that do not understand modern English). The current events I plan to educate you on, I have decided, will be the exact opposite of what Bill O'Reilly talks about. I'd like to avoid getting into arguments with black people over stuff that only black people actually care about.

Take affirmative action, for instance. Yes, white people care about it (i.e. they think it's stupid), but white people are too busy mowing their lawns and watching Antiques Roadshow to worry about affirmative action too much. It just isn't that important to them. In contrast, black people wouldn't be able to walk on the streets at might without affirmative action protecting them. Apparently institutional racism is built into our society's infrastructure.

That's another thing that bugs me, the word "infrastructure." I'm smart, so I know what it means after I stare at it for about ten seconds to five minutes. The really dumb suckers in this world are, unfortunately, too dumb to know what it means even when they use a dictionary. We should shorten "infrastructure" to "infras," so that idiots can pretend to have enlightened conversations about potholes and the Brooklyn Bridge.

And that brings me back to blogging. You see, blogs are like the potholes of the internet. You don't want to hit one with your browser.

Where will you be getting your sources from?

If you're reading this, I killed myself.
