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.

We Need To Get Back On Our Game!

We can fight them, lets just hope they have decently good paragraphs of arguments.

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

We need to make sure we're idiocy-free before we go challenge the pro-schoolers who aren't. I've detected a lot of bad grammar, a lot of generalizations, and a lot of name-calling in this thread alone. We do not have the good foothold here.

Good point. Guys, we need to work on our english. We'll look like idiots fighting them with tehs and dick level insults. We need sophistication and wit!

Also, I really want some arguments. I'm going soft without any recent conflicts. It could really flare up my hatred again. (I'm not going totally soft. You guys are just making it easier to cope with. Thanks guys!)

There are no rules, which means trolls can interfere. I was okay with it, but you guys do raise some points.

We could either 1. Hope for the best 2. Set up another place to do a more intelligent and civilized debate, because otherwise there will be trolls.

As for bad grammar- there aren't many ways to solve that, unless everyone is willing to correct it.

Though I like debating here best. Biggrin

Or,we go to a place with both intelligent people and trolls,and we all come on at the same time making big old paragraphs on how school sucks. Plus add some stuff about the government.

If the trolls are successful then we are not only because we chose a place where people would be idiotic enough to listen to trolls.

Erm...MentalAnarchist? I'm not sure how to break this to you, but I think you're one of the primary reasons we can't have a civilized debate with pro-schoolers. You don't even space your sentences - if you're at the helm of this whole thing, you might make us all look like fools.

I suggest instead that we go to pro-schooler sites, debate against or troll (depending on preference) them, and NOT tell them that we came from SS.

I recommend the site Derchin posted. It has a special education debate area.

http://forums.randi.org/forumdisplay.php?f=25

Who will start the thread? If no one wants to, I guess I can. But the thread would be pretty simple. So, if you've got something that will really spark a debate, go for it.

Ok. I'll space my sentences twice since I already started spacing them once. Happy? Smile

Also it's a plan that's barely getting anywhere still,an it started of as an idea just a day ago. Actually at first it was more of a rant than a plan.

RE: We Need To Get Back On Our Game!

A day is pretty good considering. Also, I got my flare back a bit. Sometimes, I love the dicks in our school. Really helps the old rebellious juices get flowing again. For some reason, I read everything I type as sarcastic. I don't know why.
