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.

spain having a potential veto on decisions involving gibralter isn't the same as literally giving it to the spanish as you implied in that thread. i seriously doubt this will go ahead anyway (it does say it's just a draft document) and as the falklands war demonstrated, britain is really fucking fussy about its overseas territories. not to mention there will be zero popular support
Quote:Gibraltarians, who number about 30,000, rejected by 99% to 1% the idea of the UK sharing sovereignty with Spain, in a vote in 2002.

but then again they might be more open to it considering:

Quote:Following last June's EU referendum - in which Gibraltar voted by 96% to 4% to remain in the EU

but i still think patriotism and dislike of spain will overrule their pro eu feelings or whatever the fuck. i'm just guessing rn tbh

Independence?

They voted to stay in the EU because of that.

I await Scotland's independence and Northern Ireland's economic crash preluding a unified Ireland.

Name a country that has gained independence and initially not struggled financially. It's not fucking South Sudan, markets rebound and they will recover eventually. In the long run they'll be less decadent for it.

Sturgeon is still going to pull through with the Scottish independence though.

As much as a united Ireland gives me a boner I struggle to imagine them unifying. They still hate each other right? Northern Ireland will probably economically stagnate somewhat as I believe they were quite reliant on EU funds (or was that wales? or both? i forget (or am i simply misinformed??))

scottish independence seems to be shot down by parliament every time the question is raised, so. sturgeon is persistent yes but she does need the british parliament to allow another referendum for it to happen (i think) and if theyre against it then...

idk wtf will happen with gibraltar. maybe some fucking fancy concessions to them to make up for the loss of the single market and w/e other fancy shite the EU provides. fuck if i know. i don't follow brexit please tell me all my ideas are wrong and explain why i'm begging you

you know what. fuck all this britain should submit itself to new zealand's rule tbh

kiwi empire is coming, "lads"

They'll be a force in rugby and soccer at the same time that's for sure.

Not too familiar about the NI situation but if they really do feel that marginalized than there's a sliver of hope there.
