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.

RE: My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic

Who do you mean with "him"? Are you attacking my religion? Are you telling me not to follow Jesus?

Or are you telling me not to hail to the king (or King Asshole for that matter).

Well, I watched for a limited period of time (5 minutes, which translates into 300 seconds) and found it annoying. Big time. It just seems like a waste of time. "Oh my god its talking ponies!" - how is that *not* the stereotypical little girls dream (until the pony tells the girl she's fat. That's where the lasagna comes in).

Your quarrel with SV is most entertaining by the way. He does provoke interesting reactions...though he's right on at least one thing, the target audience of MLP was little girls (at least in the beginning).
That has even been stated on wikipedia with citations...(In effect following line: "Despite the target demographic of young girls and their parents,[100][130] My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has become an Internet phenomenon, with many male fans between 13 and 35.[131] ").
I wonder what one calls a "brony" over the age of 35. A weirdo maybe?

By the way, banning people over nothing more than a mere childrens show? Sounds like its become more of an "my opinion is right and if you disagree than you shalt be banned" than an anti-schooling movement.
So basically the same as the people you think you oppose.
