Monday, June 04, 2018 (PW) — This is June 2018, so let’s glance back at our New Year’s predictions, and see how much has come to pass. Let’s start, shall we?

Thank you! I read your thrilling article that you wrote on 7th of January 2018 as a response to my article “WHO REALLY CARES FOR THE NEW YEAR, 2018”, in which I foresaw what the New Year would look like.

Indeed, I must say, you had a very strong argument and I enjoyed reading it. Kudos!

Some people who read your article in response to mine — especially the part where you branded me as a “reactive individual” — had tried to attack you in their responses. On their behalf, I must apologize and tell you that you should not take anything to heart.
