    If people can believe it, once upon a time this forum used to be normal and civilized. We still had jokes and bitchy users but we just wanted to talk about awards. When I first got here, I could never have imagined forum drama would be this prevalent.

    We used to have people like Forwardswill and Jasonface and lovelylovely who were respectful and didn’t stir anything up. We had discussions which were lively but were always polite. Now we have Thatcher and Kord and their million accounts, Pulp being involved somehow, Ayanami and Babypook’s weird stuff, and four freshly banned users.

    The people I bring up as being “normal” are still here, but they are now much less active. I can say the same for myself. I can only speak for myself but I can imagine that those people I mentioned are deterred from being as active as they once was because this bizarre drama has completely taken over these forums.

    I hope the moderators are listening. It’s not that these normal people left, but we have been drowned out by the chaos and lunacy that still hasn’t been stopped. Those of us who simply want to talk about awards are waiting for something to be changed, and I for some sincerely hope it will be.

    I’m sorry but if you read through my forum activity, the majority of my posts are meaningful discussions particularly in the music threads. Attaching me with someone like babypook who only stirs up drama is an inaccurate description of my character.

    I would love to stay drama-free but I need to defend my name if I want to stick around these forums and not get banned by Tom.

    Babypook makes groundless accusations towards users she doesn’t like. She is not credible. I have not made any offensive remarks towards her in our direct messages, contrary to her accusation. I have not “stalked” her. Babypook and I have no contact outside this website, nor have I attempted to extract any kind of personal information from her.

    She has accused me of criminal offenses on this platform. Yet the mods choose to do nothing to mediate the matter. I have not committed any crimes of the sort. I shouldn’t even be having to prove myself because the onus lies on the accuser, not the accused. But we all know the biases the moderators and editors on these threads hold towards each of us individually.

    I will probably be banned soon despite my meaningful contributions and funny banters on this website. It was fun while it lasted and I look forward to keeping in contact with other users in future. Just not on this website when Tom decides to ban me.

    Have fun you “normal” users.

    Pulp being involved somehow,

    I didn’t even do anything lol. I’ve been here almost as long as you and this site has always had messy shit, especially when there’s not a lot to talk about awards wise. Things will be more normal after globe, sag and critics choice noms give everyone something to talk about. Also none of the stuff you’re complaining about is stopping anyone from discussing awards.

    You’re absolutely right, Miles. I know a lot of people are going to be bothered by your post and try to be rude, but that’s their own problem. Sometimes the truth hurts.¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I’m not sure what’s happened over the last year, but this site went from a functioning forum with real debates and on-topic conversations about awards to something completely unrecognizable. Sure, it’s always been messy, but at least we all had fun with it and enjoyed conversing with each other (for the most part). But it’s not enjoyable or fun anymore. It’s not even coherent half the time.

    We were told there were going to be actual moderators stepping up, something A LOT of us had been requesting for quite some time BECAUSE of stuff like this, and yet ??? Where are they? Not saying or doing anything and allowing this to continue is what’s driving rational (and even semi-rational) contributors and users away.

    @tomoneil @chris-beachum Please don’t take this the wrong way, because I certainly mean this in the best way possible, but I sincerely hope this site goes through some serious changes and gets cleaned up. It desperately needs it.

    Girl, seriously, what the hell are you talking about? Those conversations are still happening, it’s not impossible for the forums to be fun/silly but serious at the same time. I really think you guys are overreacting and like what are you even referring to specifically? Thatcher? The yalitza movie? Why is any of that stopping you and miles and the rest of you who act like you’re too good for this site now from having serious discussions?

    How “normal” is the OP ? Who starts a thread like this? What’s it like coming back after years long absence to find THIS?

    I don’t think you’re being condescending enough. Try again. Not enough righteousness.

    I missed the mess. Hard agree though. Where is the class? It’s ironic that what’s keeping me here is the prediction center. I was so against nuGoldDerby initially bc I was a child who didn’t know how the world worked (putting it into context on how the business of running a website). I loved the conversations about awards and I thought the bells and whistles took away from it. But with most things concerning change, I adapted. There has been a shift that has made it just the pits to be on here. Like how Twitter has become the depths of Hell, so has here. And while I’m forever grateful for the opportunities the site gave me, it’s just not fun here anymore. Hopefully that will change, but until then consider this my dramatique final post lol.

    Well the fact that this thread even exists means it was right of me and others to stay away from this hellhole a bit more. It seems with every passing moment the average IQ of this site goes down by 10%

    This thread reeks of boomer-ism.
