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 lol-ed. 'if he don't straighten up' on top of the can of 'whip-***'....it was too much. I descended into a huge giggling fit that made my cat look strangely at me. >_<

The Mr K guy sounds like he is from S-S.... Suspicious....but really, I am pretty surprised at what he wrote. Kudos to him. Yes
Now, if there are to be more posting things similar to what he did, then humanity gains a few points.

Yes it does. It means Amortisatie's past faith in humanity was at -0.2%

"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."

Hmmm....I read that, too. Why do people always suggest counselors when teenagers and/or children have a POV that is different from the social norm? I mean really; we've all got a functioning brain inside each of our heads, and I think that we can use them just fine by at least 5 years of age. Maybe not be as experienced at that age as one would be the years following, but there is nothing wrong AT ALL with having a dislike for school, even if you're only a five-year-old. -.- & the kid that Amber created is probably older than just five (amirite Crayola?)

Re: Yahoo answers fail

Just have asked a question about graduates opportunity and jobs. Apparently, none of the yahoo folks have answered for the solely reason to keep graduates optimistic and to avoid exposing such reality that pro-schooling folks needs to realize. Someone answer this and let the debates about what kind of jobs are graduates are to expect and why do some think that they should expect some high-paying jobs thinking they're so smart because they knew they pass the degree while having little knowledge of what is the true evidence of the strength of the brain neurologically and the degree doesn't truly guarantee that you know that area of study.

Chances are they'll still think us of low person just like in the day of black people was considered as low back in the day. It's absolutely pointless when they're in total denial.

I lost all my faith in humanity when that homeschooling couple beat their daughter dead because she mispronounced a single word. They were sadistically beating her for hours with a plastic tube. And they adopted her. That is the complete fiasco of everything we have known as "moral", "ethics", "reason" or anything similar. It's hard to believe in anything such as it after you become aware of the existence of such human beings. O tempora, o mores!

Yahoo answers fail

Before Reddit, I started a Quora. I made about 160 answers before discovering Reddit at work. However, I seem to get like a thousand views a week and occassional upvotes so I'm guessing my shit is more long-lasting in visibility there than on Reddit(where after even a day, a post just "stales" as new topics flood).
