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.

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. 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 be honest, I don't really care what I share, I do however make sure I remove names, and provide names that are...not as real if I must. So yeah

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

Not as helpful. The whole reason I made it was to try and help me get the stuff I wanted to get past behind me.

I meant as a more secure alternative.

I'm a bit late here, but can you specify what exactly is your friend? "Communist" has been too much of a vague and general label for quite a while now. Is he Marxist-Leninist (Stalinist euphemism for Stalinist/Hoxhaist/Maoist/other crappy people), council communist (Of the Anton Pannekoek/Paul Mattick/Otto Rühle variety), Bordigist (As in the tradition of the theoretical contributions of Amadeo Bordiga, somewhat of a Leninist from what I have so far read about him), Trotskyist, some sort of ultra-leftist, again, what is he really?

If he really is some sort of communist, the best thing you can do right now is to encourage him to look into the history of labor movements (ex: Haymarket riot, the Spartacist uprising), various interesting people I will list soon, and (the dreaded) RevLeft.com, though I wouldn't advise your friend to register/post there immediately as I suggest a while of lurking.

Actually we don't talk much anymore so I don't really know.
