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.

IMPORTANT: Here are excellent and free scans of the real books of all the volumes:

Scroll down, there should be a list of links to PDFs.
Get them quick. They might be removed soon.

I am on my phone at school, pretty much looking at a couple of threads and I have been considering reading some Marxist literature or whatever which I rarely do.

The Better Blog

When I am bored, I sometimes like to look at old websites and look for who still keeps them online or contributes, or just continue browsing through them. I used to do this much more often 1-3 years ago, but I have had more things to be interested in recently.

I found this blog while trying to look for another weird and dead anti Bush site:
http://anti-bush.blogspot.com

One of the first blog posts shown, there was apparently a change of software in 2003 which he started over from:
http://anti-bush.blogspot.com/2003/11/wh...s.html?m=1

While doing a little searching on Hayes, I learned that local news did an article on him in 2004:

Quote:A campaign veteran at 13: Mason's youngest Democrat


Susie L. Oh
Sun Staff

January 25, 2004

Caleb Hayes of Mason County knows more about politics and current events than most people his age -- or any age.
He is a veteran of the last presidential campaign, has been to the Washington state governor's ball and runs his own political Web site.

He can discuss the national debt, the war in Iraq and the Democrats running for the presidential nomination with equal ease.

He is 13.

Caleb became a political activist at age 9 when he collected 2,000 signatures for a initiative against inhumane animal trapping.

That led him to work on the Gore campaign in 2000.

"I became addicted to it," he said. "I was at the campaign almost every day, making phone calls, going door to door ... I was only 10!" he said.

Although his candidate lost, Caleb's interest in politics did not dwindle.

A year ago Caleb taught himself computer programming language and started his own Web site -- http://www.anti-bush.com. On the site he says, "I built this site to be a source of information about our appointed, not elected, president, George Bush Jr."

Caleb is a self-described "hard-core liberal Democrat."

One of Caleb's teachers, Nancy Synder, said that although Caleb has his own political bent, he strives to be factual through extensive research and reading.

"I've taught social studies for a lot of years and never had a student who could discuss on an adult level some pretty complicated issues," she said.

Recently Caleb endorsed John Edwards for president.

Although he likes the politics of Howard Dean, he doesn't think Dean is electable because of his liberal views.

Caleb would like to run for office someday, but worries about his own electability for the same reason.

Lisa Hayes, Caleb's mother, is socially active, particularly on issues of homelessness. She said her son's activism has been both good and bad. While the losses of the Democrats, especially Gore, have been hard for Caleb to take, the recognition he's received for his work has allowed him to feel like he's making a difference.

"A sense of community contribution is something every parent wants their kid to develop," Lisa said.

Caleb doesn't know why he is so passionate about politics.

"I used to be into sports," he said. "Then it became politics. Instead of ESPN, it became CNN."

Caleb understands most teens are just not interested in politics to the degree that he is, but he made an impassioned plea.

"No matter who you are or how old you are, now is the time to look at what's happening -- the war in Iraq, major tax cuts for the rich, the first steps towards the privatization of Medicare, the economy is being trampled," he said. "Now is the time, while our country is falling apart, to get into it!"

A factual liberal?

Anyone who learns the facts, should recognize how pathetic the party system is, and how categorization of political theories is an absurd practice.

What kind of facts this kid getting? "liberal" ones?
