    Man, is he rather upset by all of this; entirely with his unstable ‘ex’ “friend” THs and his twin, unibrow….

    LOL, you are SAD. You’re how much older than me? 20+ years? And yet you resort to grade-school bullying by calling me names centered around my appearance, like “unibrow”? Oh, but you’re one of the nicest posters on the forums! Of course! You and your minions are a joke.

    Hey everyone, I can’t believe I’d missed this thread until now.

    My name is Tom. I’m in my mid 20s and from Australia. I am a Primary Teacher (Elementary) but have a strong interest in all things GoldDerby.

    Movies I enjoy are The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Walk the Line, Avatar, Inglorious Basterds and Spy (pretty much anything Melissa McCarthy is in, I even enjoyed, but didn’t love, Tammy). 

    TV Shows I enjoy are Oz, The Sopranos, The Shield, Modern Family, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife and Shameless (US).

    Music I like – Adele, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift, Florence and the Machine and Maroon 5.

    I love to travel, having seen many places in Western Europe and the UK as well as Southeast Asia. Looking forward to travelling to New Zealand, America and Eastern Europe sometime soon. 

    It’s nice to read all of your stories. 

    Wow welcome Tommy! It takes a very special person to teach grade school.

    Nice post.

    [quote=”melobruceiam”] I worked as a social worker for 35 years and have recently retired. Mr. Melo, it is even more important after the tragedy this week in Vermont to congratulate you on your retirement and sincerely thank you for your lifetime of service to the most vulnerable in our society.

    Thank you.  That was shockiingly moving.  No one has ever said that to me.

    This bullcrap was supposed to be over, but no, you have to carry it on, don’t you?  Maybe this is one of those things you should stay out of, as you are out as you are in over your head.
    Who is the minion here?  hypocrite.  You can stop the bullying right now.

    As for the unibrow comments, you probably have a high neaderthal DNA count, you lucky bastard. (from the Geograhic Program:  Everyone living outside of Africa today has a small amount of Neanderthal in them, carried as a living relic of these ancient encounters. A team of scientists comparing the full genomes of the two species concluded that most Europeans and Asians have between 1 to 4 percent Neanderthal DNA.) 
    Just accept your heritage and be proud of it.

    This blather was supposed to be over, so get over it.

    [EDIT]

    I apologize for my original post in which I told the above user to “shut the f*ck up”. Instead, I’ll exercise my right to shut them up myself by ignoring their posts from here on. On a more sincere note, I actually apologize for this stupid personal issue carrying on and poisoning this thread. Babypook laid out the bait and I bit- then Melobruceiam did what they usually do and jumped in when it had nothing to do with them because they have a problem I guess, I don’t really know. Anyway- it won’t happen again.

    Name: Karen. I’ve been here quite some time but I rarely post anything. Just through the forums and predict

    Age: 26 for two more months

    Location: Reykjavík, Iceland

    Occupation: I’m a teacher, my pupils are teenagers from the ages 13-16

    Education: I have a B.ed and a M.ed in compulsary school teacher education with speciality focus on English and social studies. All very tedious. My dream is to be a published author and one day I will be

    Orientation: Straight and chronically single

    Fave Food: I love traditional Icelandic food like shark, whale, meat soup but I also got a taste for Catalan food when I lived in Barcelona so a good escudella and esqueixada are on that list too. 

    Fave Drink: Water. I know, boring but it’s the beverage of the gods. I’m also all for a good champagne and vodka if I want to have a headache in the morning. 

    Fave TV Series: I have an affinity for British panel shows like Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and QI so most of the shows I watch are similar to those. But I of course watch scripted shows, a lot, but don’t really get attached to them. Maybe X-Files, Friday Night Lights, Community and Veronica Mars would fit the bill as faves

    Fave Movie: I watch almost anything except movies where cars are featured. Never seen a F&F movie for example. But I’m such a girl tbh and romance movies always get me. While You Were Sleeping, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle top that list. Also Beetlejuice, Batman, Batman Returns and Mermaids

    Fave Music Artist: The Libertines, Blur, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Nirvana, Amy Winehouse, The Beatles, Daft Punk and Roy Orbison

    RANDOM FACTS:

    – I suck at math and I to me the numbers 3 & 8 and 2 & 5 look basically the same. 

    – I am my parents only child but both my mom and dad have other children with different partners. So I’m both an only child and the youngest of 7. 

    – I almost always have a lot to say but I fear other’s peoples reactions so I almost always stay quiet.  

    – I taped every Oscar ceremony from 1999 – 2009 and then I realized the internet is a marvelous vault of everything and I shouldn’t really bother.

    That’s right Denis. Hardys is a terrific poster and not on the edge of psychosis, while I am a freaking bitch. Let’s leave it at that shall we?

    I’m going to say this after all of this crapola. Because, if you trace back, I’ve hardly said anything about this so-called situation. Just a few, ‘rebuttals’ of the critical but true kinds which have been jumped all over upon based on ‘backstory’.

     

    I start out by ‘liking’ everyone here at GoldDerby. I dont have an extremely short fuse or an emotionally screwed up personal life and I am not paranoid by dictionary standards. I give everyone a fair shot, and then some. Noone has to like me, and I’m fine with that. I generally stay true to myself.

     

    It’s when they begin “hate-stalking” me by email, facebook, and private messages and over a long period of time that I will fight back. When they start by ripping apart my personality, which they think they know, saying I am the worst thing on the planet earth, which can get to me after a long while.

    And then there are the SF loyalists, who blame me for his leaving.

    The ones who truly get me however, are the ones who act like innocent lambs when in fact they are the aggressors, sometimes using subterfuge but often outside of GoldDerby, they’re the one(s) who can go fuck themselves.

    And believe it or not, TomHardys is not at the top of this list. He got dragged into it by his BFF’s, who have used strong, racist, misogynistic and personality assassinations far far worse than Unibrow, which is an apt descriptive.

     

    lol. Ok. I think that’s it. I’ll just consider this a codicil to my bio.

    See ya around the boards my friends!

    I’m pretty much over this place because of certain people, but I’ll just leave this is as a final word- one of the last private convos I had with Babypook/Teri that made me decide that I didn’t want to have any personal contact with her. I have never had any vendetta against her (and despite her immature name calling, I STILL don’t), I have only engaged with her on these forums because I was either defending myself or someone else on here from her hateful words, even though she likes to twist other’s words around and act like she’s somehow always a victim and that the people who dislike her don’t have any reason. Silly, silly stuff.

    Anyway, this is my last post on this subject, and if anyone wants any further proof of how bizarre Babypook’s thoughts were about our friendship and her constantly accusing me of being a follower of SF or something (which I absolutely wasn’t- I haven’t talked to him since he was banned, and besides, he and I had harsh words for each other on more than one occasion, though I came to respect his opnion and knowledge of film), you can PM me- there’s plenty. 

    The saddest part is that I genuinely appreciated Babypook at one point in time, and the nice things I have said to her publicly and privately still stand- she was a solid friend here on the forums when I had some rough times, and I will always appreciate that. But this new thing she is doing where she is just going out of her way to try to sell some bold faced lie about me has got to stop (I’m speaking for no one else but ME, I don’t know what everyone else’s stories are). 




    This exchange is circa December 2012/January 2013 and hasn’t been altered or edited in any way- the dates and time stamps are wonky because this site’s messaging system, like everything else, is buggy as fuck:

    That just might have been the straw that broke my back Tye. I’ve always liked you, but I’ve also wondered at your support of others against me. I’m not talking about disagreeing either. If you like, I could do that to you, but I never have.

    I hope we can work this out, but if not, that’s the end of whatever cameraderie we’ve ever had here.

    You actually have no idea what I’ve gone through with “Icky”. If you’d like to side with him, and Renaton, please be my guest.

    You are right- I have no idea whatsoever about what you might have been through with Icky. I only laughed because of the context of the post, and the last sentence or two. I wasn’t even entirely sure that you two were being serious or if you guys have like a sarcastic friendship or something. There was absolutely no intention to hurt you. 

    As for my “support of others against you”, I have no idea what that means. I don’t have anything against anyone, even when I disagree. No one has done anything to me to make me hate them. I certainly haven’t conspired against anyone, least of all against you. 

    I’m sorry you feel this way and think that I’m doing something behind your back. That’s very disappointing for me because I thought that we were cool with each other and that you got me more than you obviously do. 

    And really? “Siding” with Renaton? Look Teri, it’s cool if you’d rather not be cool with me anymore. I’m not going to fight for your friendship. I didn’t think I’d have to.

    I am driving home from work now, so if I don’t write back right away it is because I am on the road.

    I’ll admit to being overly sensitive Tye. I am stressed right out, and you know why.
    If I didnt want to remain friendly, I would simply have put you on ‘ignore’ and forgotten about it. But I felt compelled to tell you my feelings, as crazy as they may sound to you.

    I’ll also tell you something else. About a year ago, I got a pm from someone who wrote me at home, especially to let me know that …..someone who is ‘friendly with me (sic)’ wrote to them and said that, any hostility between he and I is unimportant to them, and that any relationship built would have nothing whatsoever to do with my own feelings.

    Hahahaha! I just read that over and I have to say, it’s difficult to state without just stating it.

    Anyways, about Icky. A few months ago we got this letter from the big guy saying that as moderators, it was our DUTY to report (that little shit) if he makes an appearance again; that he doesnt deserve to be here because of the many personal attacks he made against him in the threads.

    But, at this point, Icky had already written to me telling me he’s been banned, and wanting me to advocate with Tom to let him return. Seriously. So, I did. And then, I protected his irritating ass for months. Of course, he doesnt know that. And I’m not telling you this because I think I’m some kind of freaking hero. I just dont like going after anyone, believe it or not. I believe in second, third, and fourth chances. There is afterall, such a thing as redemption. I wanted to give you a peak at one of the sources of my irritation towards Icky, who revealed partial truths in his post (which I started, granted) and revealed things which shows what a classless jerk I think he is. And, you laughed with him at me.

    So while I’m being honest, please dont mistake my reaction to any disagreement between us about films. That’s ridiculous. But you do and have supported others directly against something I’ve posted. I’d rather that you disagreed directly to me in the threads. I can take it, and I’d far prefer it because that sparks conversation, and you and I have had many many of those. 

    It’s hard to describe because it’s not like I’m objecting to anyone or numbers agreeing about a film that I dont happen to share the same feelings about. This is a subtler thing and has prompted me to write to you about it in the past, although, not as succinctly as this.

    Also, I’d fight for your friendship, whether I’d ‘have to’ or not. There’s a vast collection of fools and ignoramouses here, and we sane folk need to stick together.

    What’s up Tye? Will I get any kind of response, good or bad from you now?
    December 31 at 04:44 pm
    Tye-Grr
    Sorry, I’ve been working all day (I just got home and I’ve been up since 3am) and I haven’t had the time to articulate the kind of response I wanted to give you. In short, to my knowledge, we’re fine. Obviously I’ll talk about it more in depth later, but I guess I just don’t understand what happened. I like to avoid drama at all cost, and keep in mind that I am not saying you are drama, I just don’t know how any of this came to be. I come on these boards, I post about movies and music, and I keep to myself and either agree it disagree with other’s opinions, never having a bias, unless someone gives me a reason to dislike them. I don’t form alliances, I don’t have a clique… In fact, you are the ONLY person I even message privately on these boards (aside from an occasional random message here or there from a few other posters). I’m still confused as to why you went off like that, and though you explained yourself, I don’t know… It was all just very weird for me. But anyway, I like letting bygones be bygones, so I’m just willing to move on and carry on as things were. Thank you for responding and caring. My quote earlier about not fighting for a friendship came out wrong- I guess I meant that I wasn’t going to beg you to stay my friend on here if you didn’t want to. I’m just not the type to do that.
