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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

You seem like a nice enough individual.

Quote:Favorite kind of pie?
I enjoy pies that have chocolate in them, while also making room for pecan, apple, and pumpkin. Historically, I have preferred pumpkin, but things do change.

Quote:Do you like blueberries or blackberries more?
Haven't made an absolute decision yet, although I have more experience with blackberries. So, tentatively blackberries.

My opinion on you is that you need to learn to spell opinion.

Mountainside. Underwater would require much more power just to keep it going, and the potential for leakage is very real. Mountainside is just much more cost effective.

If offered a substantial amount of money to commit a heinous, mind-scarring crime - likely one involving a person you know and trust - would you take it in cash or check?

Never heard of the guy before now. Looked him up on Wikipedia, and I can say I vehemently disagree with his politics. The face that he may or may not be a violent terrorist is also really screwed up. At least Marx never killed nobody.

He also lacks a rad Marxist beard.

On mogget? Not for a day or maybe two I think. I am also banned from #schoolsurvival on rizon.

Quote:Best/worst things about college?
The best things about college are how it's dissimilar to high school. How you're actually mostly treated like an adult. How you are actually expected to be intelligent and take responsibility for your own learning.

The worst part are dorms and the ways that college is still like high school.

Quote:If offered a substantial amount of money to commit a heinous, mind-scarring crime - likely one involving a person you know and trust - would you take it in cash or check?
Our self-perceptions are sometimes worth more to us than money. I perceive myself as someone who wouldn't do this kind of thing, ever. Except possibly under torture or mind control.

Please explain in more detail.

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.
