If only publicly verifiable/falsifiable predictions were permitted, would you have stuck around?

I think the issue is not about allowing/disallowing such predictions but having good tagging that tags all those predictions with "private life" and then the option of people to block that tag the way you can block tags on stackexchange.

0[anonymous]5yNo; that's too restrictive. It just needed more moderation and a lot more love.
2MathiasZaman5yRather than simply forbidding them, I'd suggest having various sharing options ranging from "public" over "people I invite" to "just me."
