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.

UK Pirate Bay Block Backfires, Easy To Get Around

HO HO HO THE PIRATE BAY!!!



Quote:Shiver me timbers!

If like me you're one of Sky's four million UK broadband customers, yesterday you'll have found that you were unable to access legendary filesharing site The Pirate Bay. That's because they've blocked it following a court order obtained by BPI, the record industry trade association.

Sky's block follows Virgin Media's and Everything Everywhere's earlier this month, with O2 having until June 13th to deny their customers access to the site, and TalkTalk and BT likely to follow shortly after.

Unfortunately for the big corporations who are trying to censor the Web, the recent blocks seem only to have increased The Pirate Bay's popularity.

Earlier this month a spokesperson told Torrentfreak blog that the mainstream media's huge amount of "free advertising" had driven millions more visitors to the site. They gleefully claimed that,

Thanks to the High Court and the fact that the news was on the BBC, we had 12 million more visitors yesterday than we had ever had before...We should write a thank you note to the BPI (British Phonographic Industry).


Equally unfortunate for big businesses such as BPI is the fact that the block is incredibly easy to get around.

Anyone wanting to access the site can do so by using a proxy - general proxies can be found by simply searching for "proxy server" - or visiting the dedicated TPB proxy set up by Pirate Party UK.

Happy seafaring, me hearties.
