What would you call someone who is the opposite of Golden?

Asked by josie (30931points) July 18th, 2010

I commented on a reference I saw in a thread, regarding Flutherites who are “Golden”
Some people are obviously not comfortable with the discussion, and a few doth protest too much methinks. But that aside, maybe the problem is one of fairness. Maybe there should be a name for the “Not Golden” referring to those who are likely to get modded. Like the Sweathogs on Welcome Back Kotter. Any suggestions?

Technically on the color wheel the opposite of yellow or gold is purple.

So I say call them Amethyst.

Seriously, there is no golden group. Whether you want to believe it or not. Are you really that upset because you were modded? Was there something in particular you felt should have been modded and it wasn’t? If so, did you flag it? What’s with this sudden obsession about a non-existent group someone mentioned as a joke?

George W Bush!

@BoBo1946 Not bad. I just might start referring to a non-Golden Flutherite as “a Bush”

Methinks this is a very artificial and meaningless concept.

@dpworkin is someone that freely admits to being the most modded ‘golden’ out there.

So let them be named that, in honor.

gailcalled's avatar

@Keysha: Please, no. Don’t complicate things even further. And we still don’t know who “them” are. That implies an “us”. which is a very divisive concept.

A severed head wrapped in golden paper is still a severed head.

I vote for the Brackish Undertow.
