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.

Honestly, they could do such a better job. They say "WE GON HELP THE POOR" but all they do is just throw money at the needy and ignore the root of the problem. Don't they realize that we need to attack the root? I just did the math, and it would cost 35 cents per person to day to have free pre-school for every kid in the country, which is shown to have a ton of good effects. They focus on a war on drugs when more people are in jail for pot then any other crime and cocaine's illegality drives the drug trade. They focus on healthcare when what we need is free college for real equality. Those fucktards are just republicans who appeal to a different audience.

Also the title was mostly for attention, I don't hate Democrats, I just think that we have no one to vote for.

Why are all Democratic Politicians so stupid?

Why do we vote for politicians when there are so many humans to choose from instead?

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.

Except no Republican would be caught dead giving someone money they didn't earn, and for good reason.

And free education? Really?

Do you even cost/benefit analysis?

Schooling of any kind is ineffectual. Pre-schools and colleges might not be the abominable institutions public schools are, but children and adolescents are still better off without them.

I have to agree with IamNoone on this one. If you wanted to be, say, a physicist, you would have a very difficult time trying to get a job without a college degree. While I agree that pretty much any form of school is stupid, free college is something that is definitely needed.

Polictical parties are dividing America. I wish they were abolished, honestly. America, is now being dividied more by partisan bickering. I think we should just vote for individual people not people from political parties. It sucks- you could either vote for the Republicans, the angry white christian men or the democrat the crazy, pot using fucked up hippie. There needs to be more moderates in politics. I could never vote Republican, which leaves me with democrats. It`s too bad the libertarian`s are not a strong party.

Vote third party. No way I'm throwing a vote to either of the big-government parties.

Republicans are just as bad, on the opposite side. Course, they aren't really in power so it's easy for them to blame it all on the democrats and rant about how none of this would happen if they were in power(which is true due to the fact they just screw up the country in another way).

We need a radical communist party to rise up and burn down the Capitol Building because of getting so excessively drunk(their blood alcohol level was so high, they all spontaneously combusted while debating who had the cooler beard between Marx and Engel, causing the nearby unfinished bottles of alcohol to also combust).

Or the American people need to get off their lazy ass and get politically active. A superpower with the lowest voter turnout of all Industrialized Western Democracies sort of depreciates the value of "super".
