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.

Absent did make some points, but potential was squashed with the excessive cursing (Makes a point less valid or one worth listing to) and him dodging the question where the poster brought up the point of the teachers and what they have to go through on a daily basis .

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.


If a teacher you don't know tries to bust you for something, just tell them "Jsem výměnný student, nemluvím anglicky. Tak jdi do prdele ty posranej hajzle, tvoje matka je kurva!", then send me money.

Asder Miller, why the fuck are you still here, seriously? For the good of all of humanity, I suggest you to shove a rocket launcher up your pathetic, miserable filthy ass and return to eating cock.

Funny thing? I got in trouble for saying oh fudge when my recorder broke in music. 90% of them acted like i had yelled "JESUS SODOMY" in a catholic church. I heard them mumbling and it was hilarious. "Whats he in here for now?" "Well, he said fudge." "Ohhh, i see."

Only the secretary (fairly level-headed) didn't understand at first. "Okay, he said fudge." "Yes but he didn't mean brownies." "Oh. OH."

"Ask them no more questions, never hear them lying"

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

I bold those because, yes you can give up some alternatives, but its not a guarantee it'll work.

WTF, that's so messed up. That's the POINT of substitutes like "fudge," so you can avoid cursing in class... it's supposed to prevent you from getting in trouble. What about if you said "Ugh!" instead of "fudge" (or god forbid, "fuck"), would they behave the same way? Because then "ugh" would be a swear word...that's so messed up...because then you wouldn't be able to say ANYTHING...hell, even your SILENCE would take on the value of a swear word, just like "fudge" did....theres no escape.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

RE: If you say your gonna do it, do it then.

Wait...so if the foam is eventually cleaned up, does that mean we can sack all the firefighters? Yeh...didn't think so.

Besides, speeches are powerfully effective and keep big companies locked into a kind of prisoner's dilemma. It's called advertising.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.
