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.

I kinda know about the Middle East though I'm limited.

But yes, Brain needs to post his walls of texts about this.

Pfft, aint no wall. Maybe.

Basically, the AKP pushed a bunch of bullshit to get Erdogan the power of a single executive position i.e President which would technically give him significantly more power. The referendum for the new constitution also introduced some stuff that sounds nice like younger age limit for MPs(18) and expand the number of MPs. Plus some other nice sounding laws that are more like frosting on a shitpile.

The executive will not only be head of government and head of state, he'll also have the ability to retain party leadership(thus control the party he is a member of). Ministers will be more easily chosen, the president can declare state of emergency, and can suspend parliament.

Basically, he's consolidated power in the executive branch, taken control of the judicial branch(with his overarching power to move judges around without waiting for parliament to get involved), and has cut down the power of the parliament significantly especially if the ruling party is his party. Throw in the fact that his supporters are as mindless and idiotic as Trump supporters here in the US, and you've basically got a government being run by an authoritarian on a whim and who has guaranteed his position by getting rid of any threat parliament could pose to him as long as the AKP remains within the 40%+ control spectrum.

I personally didn't vote. If I had, I'd say no, but it seems like there's already reports of voter fraud being investigated so it's not like it'd matter. Plus, my hands are full with Trump here in the US. It's fun being a dual citizen of two countries run by egomanical lunatics bent on greed and corruption and supported by a rabid crowd of stupid fucks.

Brain I'm gonna assume a number of those said egomaniacs live in your neighborhood.

10 bucks says Le Pen and AMLO win their elections respectively.

French elections can be tricky. They've had times where one candidate looked like they were doing good in the first round, then got utterly crushed in the next round.

Yeah they have that weird run off because they're a multiparty system.
