OK, so, here are the rules for the Life Sucks (Rants) forum.

1. KEEP THREADS ON TOPIC

** BELONGS HERE **

Does your post talk about how mom and dad are always harshing your mellow?

Does your post talk about how Sally Stinkfinger won't give you the time of day?

Is your boss screwing you over? Did you just fail your school chemistry test?

VS

** DOESN'T BELONG HERE **

Are you upset because the latest Daft Punk album didn't meet your expectations?

Do people in your neighborhood wear their pants lower than you would prefer?

Please limit threads to real problems, not trivial first-world problems.

2. NO SUICIDE (OR "CUTTING"/SELF-HARM) THREADS. If you're thinking about it, telling us forum members isn't really going to help your self-esteem any. Read UberSkippy's explanation below, stick around, laugh at some others' misfortunes, but DON'T POST THAT FUCKING THREAD.

From The Desk Of UberSkippy: We here at WTF.com are subjected to roughly 2 or 3 suicide threads a month. Mostly these are seen as pathetic cries for attention. Once in a while it's a real thread. Either way we get a plethora of dumbshits posting things like "DO IT LOSER!!!!!"

Here's the deal: because nobody here is qualified or certified to deal with threats of suicide, suicide threads are prohibited. All such threads will be deleted on sight.

If you really are contemplating suicide please pick up a telephone and dial:
1-800-273-8255
or
1-800-784-2433
or

Whatever your problems may be, it's not worth offing yourself over. Suicide destroys the lives of the people that do care about you. Life is hard. But it's not worth quitting.

3. If an offensive post is seen, REPORT IT. Tattle, N.A.R.C., blow the whistle, rat-out, whatever. Just tell a mod of that forum, and leave it alone.

I have a few things to remind you of. The first being that in no way shape or form will violence towards others or comments condoning violence or non-consensual sexuality towards others be allowed. If you suffer from a violent situation,or you have problems with violence in your life, please feel to talk about it and we may be able to help you.

Family is one of the most important things that we have in our lives. For good or bad, we learn what we may want to be, but also what we never want to be.

Nobody has had a perfect life. Some of us struggle with cruel siblings, and some of us are the cruel siblings. Others have been abandoned, and some of us wish our parents would get out of our ass. This is where we can talk about how fucked up our family is, and maybe get something good out of it. At the very least, a release of all that frustration that we can not release anywhere else.

Violence is not the answer. It never is. It causes you as much pain as the other.

If you feel that you need help with a violent situation, and do not want to create a thread, please feel free to PM one of the staff and we will listen and help if able.

Seeing as this forum can occasionally deal with matters of the heart, there obviously needs to be a note regarding how we should deal with people asking for help. Sometimes people post in this forum requesting advice. We do try to help here so posts saying stuff that is not needed or can be seen as to offend the thread starter may be edited as we see fit.

Constructive criticism is allowed, but consider making it somewhat useful.

Some people come here after being in a break up/or their partner being unfaithful, or any other reason. So to kick them while they're down, this is not the place to do it. Taters & Haters is for that. ;)
