The only real fact.

post #1 of 110
Thread Starter 
I am not an insider. I have no accurate information. I am a liar. I had you all hanging on my every word, pathetic. Unbelievable really. Future Hardware my ass. I will never post again. I have already prooved that the only real facts are real facts. Apple will amaze us in a few days and I wanted to show you all that speculation is just that,speculation. Apple may even out do my WILD, OUTRAGEOUS, CRAZY specs.

You might think Im crazy but i dont even care, I know whats going on, I know its hip to be a square.

LOL this whole thing was fun. You want to know who I am? TOUGH!

Bravo! Do you troll on /. too?

Yeah...right on your every word. Nobody ever suspected a thing...

Someone close this thread.

what a surprise

happens everytime and people fall for it everytime.


BTW, normally I would be completely against publishing "private information". But I would really like it if one of the mods or Jonathon could tell us who this really is and then ban his ass

My guess was pscates from the start.

Everybody has a right to post whatever they like here.

I can understand how you'd get frustrated, but come on guys? We've all been here long enough to know that we can never know for sure what's going to be released until the actual keynote.

Now find something else to do until Jan. 7 when we'll know for sure and stop working yourselves up over all this.

Except for you. This is your first post. Any reason you had to create a new member just to say that?

Probably Mastergateing trying to save his own ass, lol.

Actually the mods have a pretty good idea of where he's coming from... And he's not the only from there spreading shiite on these boards...

for a member to create another name and then try to make asses out of his fellow members is really low in my book.

as for we never knowing what's going to come out? never heard of workerbee?

I KNEW someone would take the bait. Actually, I've been a member since the old AI forums (before this last update) with another user name (which I still use). Know this:

1) I AM NOT Mastergateing -- the Admins can verify that, and are welcome to.
2) I'll still usually post with my other user name.
3) I won't make predictions or the like -- only be the voice of reason when it seems to be lacking (no offense to anyone, we're all human)
4) I'd like to remain anonymous with this name.

Three thoughts:

1) No one can make an ass out of you unless you give him/her permission to do so.
2) Had Apple legal not stepped in and workerbee not been as reasonable, he would have been the same as you all see Mastergateing.
3) A certain fahre451 has posted info on another thread. Aside from Apple Legal not stepping in (yet), several on the boards are taking him quite legitimately (as workerbee was taken).

Haha - sounds like fun, Peacekeeper....it's a hard thing to do, so good luck.

For the record, I do think that Mastergateing deserves a ban simply for abusing the forum and its members through fraud for no other purpose than his own amusement, rather than actual interest. He's turned the forum from an outlet for real hardware speculation and discussion to a rant on his illegitimacy.

Not quite. Workerbee had information on specs and design. Mastergateing claimed to have prices as well and only a select handful of people have all the information. There are many people, maybe 1000 or more who know things about the upcoming products but its segmented. Some have the specs, some have seen the the designs, some have the prices. Very few have all of the above. VERY few.

OH SHIT, IVE SAID TOO MUCH.

nah, in reality, we don't really care. Obviously Masterbating was nothing.
post #27 of 110
Aaaaaahhhhh, so it was one of the ADMINS trying to toy with his forum children. Who else would pick such a stupid name as Mastergateing? It's referrent to...well, you know, AND an admin could be considered the MASTER GATEKEEPER to the boards. Hence the name.

Tsk tsk, boys.

No beer for you, sludge-nuts. By the way, I seem to recall a fair majority of the people who responded to your post / claims. Like me they all thought you were full of shite. Now be off with you, pansy-ass.

It would be nice if AI did a little thing like they did with the Cube again. That was two days before MWNY, right?

How soon you all forget the words of the anti-mastergater. This thread does nothing to cast doubt on the Pi-Mac, Pi-Book or PiPod!!

Seriously though, what in the hell am I supposed to do now that the Mastergater has revealed himself to be a pubescent wanker (only a teenager could find such a scheme amusing)? My work is done for now. Maybe I'll wait for the next dorsal-wannabe-chump to show up. Then you'll all see the light and the Pi-Mac will be revealed.

Why is everyone getting riled up about nothing? So, he made stuff up. Big deal. I didn't believe him (much ) in the first place, but apparently some of you did, seeing how angry you are at him.

as I said, AI is a community. a very good community. any member who creates another name to try and make us out as gullible idiots should no longer be a member.

it's not whether you believed it or not.
