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.

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.

Since some weeks ago, I've been seeing this "platypus1917" website about leftist stuff or whatever on some of my searches. About an hour ago, I decided to skim through what this other leftist thing said about them:

http://www.leninology.com/2013/06/open-l...iated.html

Basically, these Platypus weirdos apparently want to "INTIMIDATE THE (rest of the) LEFT TO ITS LONG DESERVED DEATH UNTIL IT'S ONLY US SO WE CAN MAKE/HAVE A PERFECT MARXISM" or something like that, which is pretty weird.

^ Sounds exactly like the "leftist unity" bullcrap on NationStates; some influential groups are trying to turn the entire political left Marxist just because they lost some influential players to the moderators.

NSG Senate was fun for a bit, but I gave up on it after awhile.

I don't think Platypus is aiming just for a generally Marxist presence over the left, what I remember reading was that they are trying to establish tendencial orthodoxy to their specific interpretation of Marxism or some other leftist thing across the entire left, which to be honest was pretty characteristic of a sizable chunk of the left historically, but circumstances today makes it seem weird, and their, uh, method or whatever to debate the left to its end sounded pretty petty from what I have read.

I was looking at Wes' signature and I am assuming that my presence here with my obvious fascination with revolutionary leftism was a factor in this being added:

"Economics? The study of allocating scarce resources is clearly a fascist bourgeois plot to oppress the common man."

I have a few things to type at the moment:
First of all, I have nothing to say on the definition of economics provided by Slavin.
Second, I'm assuming that "fascist" and "plot" was used here to imply that Marxists have always theorized that the existence of capitalism was inherently reactionary (It is more accurately summarized by various revolutionary leftists that capitalism was revolutionary during 18th century France and capitalism was reactionary during the 1918-19 German Revolution). I do not yet know of a single Marxist who has concluded this. I'm also assuming that "fascist" and "plot" along with the vague populistic phrase of "oppress the common man" could possibly mean that this is more of a snark towards (a stereotype of) left-wing leaning students and hippies of the counterculture movements of the 60s than ideologically convinced revolutionary leftist theorists.

It's actually more of a jab at our wonderful anarcho-primitivist comrades. They always struck me as the silliest of all the leftists. It's been in my sig at DnE for ages.

you always make me wonder, with those puns you make that no one else gets but us, if you are serious about your feelings because I think there's a pattern with those puns and something else with your post. I don't mind the dumb weirdo above, because I think you're Cole-M [you'll get that Wink ]

Sey, this is a really thoughtful post. I appreciate how you've never been mad at me as much as I have been mad at you, and how you can still positively comment on me and with that really funny pun (that no one else gets, but us, hehe), too, after all that happened yesterday. I apologize, Sey, I apologize for all of it. It isn't even Alive's fault for my aggressiveness these past months, it's just mine, and it was all "justified" through pettiness and exaggeration, simply lies. Thank you, Sey, for saving me from myself many times.

Anyway, Sey has been inactive from almost all of the groups we're usually both active in for a reason that he hasn't specified yet.
I'll update on this when necessary.
