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.

Paraless Wrote:Listen, Bobby, you have to realize that these troubled teen camps are not as ubiquitous as you think. Why are you obsessed with them, anyway? Most of the teenagers attending these places are addicted to drugs, violent, or sociopathic. Their lives are already ruined; desperate circumstances require desperate measures. Many of the stories about what goes on in teen rehabilitation camps are sensationalized to begin with. Yes, sometimes things go wrong. However, if you actually give a damn, then go do something about it instead of whining on an internet forum. We can't stand to hear your petulant ramblings anymore. Since when are you the arbiter on who should live or die, besides?

Where's your evidence that most of the teenagers attending these places are addicted to drugs, violence, or sociopath? There's plenty of people that are sociopath in this world not caring for other and some few rich people is evidence of it along with people who gets a lot of cash in order to get himself/herself pleasure while not giving a damn to give a gift for other.Boot camps are correlated to the school system and there's more than 5 percent that goes into boot camps due to their grades and rebellion against their oppression. The students that rebels because they feel oppressed the school system and some of them often ends up in boot camps simply because people can't take control over them and they got no choice but to eliminate him/her. You honestly don't know their future and there is plenty of people who uses drugs at a young age having great life. Heck there's evidence of people dropping out early being more rich than an average graduates.

lol oh wow, sorry big man

It must be great holding a title, but barely living up to it. All the while you can flaunt your position to other people to blow up your ego.

It also amuses me how you compared yourself to me. I'm just here to talk about ideas and blow steam. Now go back to NYRA.

Re: Hey, assholes,

It's more than he's done Wink. In any case, I also forced through several policy changes at my previous school, and I'm starting a NYRA chapter at my new school.

Re: Hey, assholes,

It has served us well, this topic of mine.

What have I done? I've actually tried to spread the youth rights ideology. Instead of sitting here, ranting about what I hate, I have actually done stuff, which a good portion of you guys have yet to do.

Now that's progress.

I haven't done much of shit because my focus is more on gay rights currently.

Student rights is the sub-movement of YR that I am most active in.

But like I've said, I haven't done shit.

But I'll throw in that, really, I haven't done anything for the Youth Rights Movement, considering evidence is constantly being blown in my face by youth THEMSELVES that they need to be controlled.

No, it's not "evidence". Those that see it as evidence are fucking idiots. It may make it seem that way, but in reality it's not "evidence".

For fuck sake, the train thing might even show the authority's weakness.

Oni-Chiisu has a point here...

How are we supposed to accomplish anything if the non-thinking youth majority doesn't change?

Where did you draw to that conclusion? If anything it was her pro-school friend that hated her, or are trying to spend bullshit, as usual? She never hinted that she hated her pro-school friend.

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

Re: Hey, assholes,

I'll concede a point: if they like school, let 'em like it. But they shouldn't feel the need to change what we like or dislike just because it rubs their dicks the wrong way. Scenario time:

A, B, and C.

Person A Dislikes school.

Persons B and C Like School.

Person C is trying to force Person A to like school and fit with his views, and is suddenly blaming Persona A for all the problems in their friendship.

Person B is apathetic about the whole thing.

Cookie if you can find out who's in the wrong.

You're missing the fact that he haven't mentioned hate his friends, but his friends decided to ditch him for one day because of it. I have an couple of experience of people ditching me when I told them my views are entirely different than the majority of people.

Re: Hey, assholes,

Every now and then we get some pro-school users. One of them (Killjoy, aka mrwensday) is infamous but luckily isn't active anymore; also he actually used to be antischool.

Any other pro-schooler is usually a immature crock with flawed-ass arguments. Paraless, though, isn't that bad of a guy.

There's nothing wrong with debate, ya know?
