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.

Here's your American America hater!

I have been losing all of my faith that this country will ever be as great as it was in the 1800's,oh and I'm new.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

RE: Here's your American America hater!

yea, it seems like it was a lot better overall back when we didn't have things like the internet and filesharing...this wasn't a sarcastic post by the way, I agree that things were better before filesharing, but i do also agree that we shouldn't have to pay for as much as we already do.

"free speech under the constitution only guarantees the government won't stop him saying it and does not guarantee his right to say things and have no consequences at all as a result. also i completely doubt that he is motivated solely by "i'm saying it because i can" and is probably motivated by a more shitheady motive like "i think it's funny to annoy people and Rustle Le Jimmies™ and is just hiding behind the first amendment to try to deflect any consequences or make you realize that being allowed to annoy people is a superior moral right. you can still disdain someone for doing things for dumbarse wankery purposes and you have evne more right to ban and insult them for it" ~Trar's friend about Potato.

Thanks for the diploma… can I have my childhood back?

I don't like america because of their politics, their way of behaviour and their way of thinking, their place in the world, their sly/evil way of controlling the rest of the world, they are a super-power, their "I think I'm smart and best". They act and do not think. Sorry if I'm insulting anyone, that's how it is. How I feel it. They'll have to do something very special to reformat my brain cells back to America is OK.

That's exactly the way America is and if you deny it the consequence is being bashed to death.(In a scaling way not just being bashed to death.)

^ I deny it, to an extent. The United States of America is, without a doubt, the greatest nation in the entire world, but I'm not a patriot or a nationalist. I say it because it is true, but say it only because every other nation sucks so much that even the U.S.A., hotbed of political corruption and moral degeneracy, can clinch the top spot.

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Every nation has power. America probably has the most. That's bad.

it was shit in the 1800's, with slavery through most of it. During the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, living conditions were really poor for many (pretty much like sweatshop workers now in China, or even worse)
The government here was always shitty, just often less so than elsewhere.
