    Everyone,

    I’ve decided to start out the New Year with a major change. I’m finally deleting my Goldderby account. This is indescribably difficult for me since I love making predictions and have met some legitimately cool and decent people on here, but I’ve had enough of the people who I’ve even had on ignore, for they have just become overwhelming for me.

    The banning of Gucci just felt so random to me. I’ve seen people say the most condescendingly vile shit to others (yes at times including me) and yet they have managed to stay on simply because… they don’t cuss quite as much while being disingenuously slanderous or hypocritical or just flat-out disrespectful in their criticisms of me? Not of my opinions about works of art, but about me personally mind you. Oh, so if they don’t swear directly at other posters then they must be alright!

    I don’t engage in direct personal attacks with people anymore, but if I see people being rude or acting unjustly self-righteous in how they come at others (once again, including myself) I will be real with them and tell them to knock it off or to look at themselves and re-examine their own behavior. People are often too damn sensitive about shit that doesn’t matter in their lives just as people in this culture at large I feel tend to often be completely insensitive about shit that does in fact affect their life. I’ve got feelings about certain movies and awards and if others can’t tolerate those feelings not even directed at them personally in a mature and polite manner, then I sadly don’t feel safe as a part of this community anymore. Ultimately, life is too short.

    This has been such a long time coming to be honest. I could go on and on but… I think I’m just gonna say that I am proud of my past predictions scores for the most part and while I doubt most of you will miss me, I know I’m definitely gonna miss some of you (Mukund, Vinny, Eden, PJ Edwards, Eastwest, Macca, etc.) for your friendship. For the past 4 years I’ve been on Goldderby, you have helped make this experience more fun and less stressful for me. Thank you for that.

    Good luck with 2019 everyone. Here’s to surviving and hopefully thriving as well as we all can in these strange and unpredictable times. Please try to treat each other far nicer than I was treated. Be grateful for your loved ones, you don’t know how long they will around on this Earth for, along with every other pleasant element of your life.

    Sincerely,

    Teridax

    Sad to see you go, Teridax. You’re intense, but never out of order or disrespectful. Hopefully, like Sasha said, this is not goodbye, but see you later.

    Agree with what the others have said. You talk utter nonsense sometimes but it’s gonna be weird not having that in the forums. Have a nice break and then do come back to us for Emmy season

    Thanks to everyone who posted and liked these comments. I’m not very emotionally secure on these forums. Ditto pretty much everything I had said above in my original (what had been intended to be permanent) goodbye. This has got to be it for real though. This was never going to last and I am fortunate it lasted as long as it did, for over 4 years.

    I feel I ought to mention that I simply cannot hold any long-lasting hatred or grudges against anyone else here who I’ve gotten into beefs with publicly on these forums, no matter what they choose to think of me. They know who they are and I sincerely want them to know I hold no hard feelings. Life is too short for petty grudges, including against those you don’t know personally, who have been repeatedly disrespectful.

    Good luck to you all on your predictions and I sincerely wish you all a pleasant and fun rest of your lives.

    Sucks to see you go! I always enjoyed your analysis even if I didn’t agree. There are much worse people on the board than you and hopefully they don’t get the honor of being able to write a goodbye post before their exit.
