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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

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.

He actually does. Your boss is the one providing you money so that you can pay for food and your own well being.

That's assuming the money is used for that purpose.

The money can be used for anything. Thus the boss has no relationship with food & well-being. The money the boss gives for services rendered is gives the ability to care for your own individual sustenance and health, but there is no clause that has the boss responsible for that duty. The boss only pays what is owed. What's done with that payment is an individual choice.

However, when parents become responsible for kids, it is their duty to properly handle situations. Children are investments. If you treat them the way Fox treated Firefly(screw up the show and destroy it's chances of catching a wider audience, then blaming the film for it's failure), then the fault of the child is in fact the fault of the parents. Thus a child who is failing, means the parents are failing. Failure to decide what is really important in your child will only lead your child to failure, whether it has to do with grades or even life. Treating failure with punishment is another failure, a failure to deal with failure, because it only makes the problem worse by not providing a SOLUTION, thus showing a weakness in the abilities of the parents who choose to put the blame on the child(through punishment) rather than find a solution through understanding and compromise(and acknowledging their own flaws)

I banned stephen926 a while ago so even if he logs back in he can't post.

I wish we had someone like him though. He really riled up the forum and started a good old shitstorm. It was fun.

Yes I am.

And yes he put on a hell of a performance. Greatest pro-school troll to ever come on here IMO.

He even visited us during the Great Rift. He must've thought we were insane.

There seems to be no plausible arguments coming from you. The only ones you give are fallicious in nature. The only arguments you pull out are anecdotes and "you need to grow up". Sorry, but people don't fall for rhetorical fallacies anymore. How about I make it easy for you.

Did you know that 27% percent of accepted Stanford applicants are homeschoolers while only the traditional applicant goes at a whopping 5%?

Also, what's more is that even M.I.T explicitely states that they don't require a high school diploma or a GED from their applicants. Simply stating that it's never going to change and thus you must deal with it is somewhat of an appeal to tradition.

You don't even need to have a Computer Science Degree to become a software engineer at Google!

If you want to keep using your fallacies, then fine, but do not use them on the well-informed.

Ohh he's banned. Well, it's fine he didn't even bring arguments that were compelling.
