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.

School Computers and Wi-Fi Networks

At my school, the tech office sees EVERYTHING WE DO on the computers. Everything. Also, when we log onto to the wi-fi network we are still blocked from numerous sites, and I'm guessing we're still watched. I understand the school computers are their property, but they are watching us on our devices.
It just really bothers me that they see everything you do, it makes me feel like I'm being stalked because there's always a pair of eyes on your computer.

Boot up Ophcrack LiveCD and decrypt the admin hashes.

That or just use any Linux Live CD/USB and enjoy the freedom.

RE: School Computers and Wi-Fi Networks

The same thing happens at my school. Whenever someone connects to the open wifi network at my school, before browsing to any page, you have to enter your student username and ID number. The admins will watch everything you do like hawks from that point onward.

I just browse on my phone's data connection at school so I don't have to deal with this.

I often forget about the existence of the thanks button on these forums...

If my writing happens to be too sporadic, too brief, or missing information, call me out on it.

Yeah, boot a Linux live CD and see if you can get traffic through an SSH tunnel.
