The only real fact. - Page 3

post #81 of 110
I swear I just experienced deja vu. Was the applenut-all-over-pscates-thing something that happened before?

The lesson here is: don't get emotionally invested in others' words.

How old are the "admins" on this board? 14? 15? Launch a DOS attack, "watch out we know who you are." Gimme a break. I hope that this type of crap is in jest.


The guy's a fake. Wooohooo Sherlock great detective work. Who ****ing cares. The fact that he's spewing out BS left and right isn't enough. By having a public rumor board what do you expect? I expect 99.99% of the "inside" info to be pure crap, but I read it for fun anyway.

I realize that, that's why I had Quotes around "Macinto" because that's all I could quote since it wasn't spell out. But yes, Machintosh is the jerk.

foamy I am 99.95% sure that it was in jest.

I think you're refering to the applenut/Fran441 arguements in my "Mercury Rising (" thread at the old AI. Or was it somebody else?

me and fran441. I had so much fun in that thread. I got so pissed but had a great time. still think I was right but unfortunately he turned out to be right overall.

did anyone save that? I would love to read through it again. I think 25 percent of my 5700 posts at the old AI were probably in that thread

HEY, wait a second there. I said I thought that since he seemed to not KNOW KORMAC he actually lends credibility to his post. I only want to believe him as far as I'd love for faster macs to come out. But, that'd be the case regardless of who said it.

No, I don't think so. I don't recall ever having any sort of running beef with applenut.

Or anyone, really, for that matter.

Mild disagreements, at worst. But, in general, I really don't like confrontation.

No, really! Just seems that way sometimes (if you're a John Travolta fan or something...).

I just went back to the old thread, and didn't you forget SYN? He was all about the wanting to believe.

Nothing against you SYN, but you were all over asking MG for more, yearning -- ACHING to believe he was truthful.


:confused:

in what way does

and my criticism of the supposed iMac price points, which resulted in another member telling me to "lay off" , make me a hardcore believer?

In some of my posts I did ask specific questions with no clear scepticism in order to try and make Mastergateing contradict himself, but I wasn't the one praying for him to be right... or wrong. I'm just here for the fun

SYN was the one who was pressing him the hardest for details in the chatroom. Concrete details regarding the G5's architecture, not foofoo crap.

I had loads of fun reading MG's posts. Damn. Back to work.

Mastergating,

I refrained from posting on your thread because I knew you were full of it. But, now that you have come back to rub it in everyone's face I have to say this is just another childish stunt. You have proved NOTHING. We all know there are people on this board who hang on every word that might be true. The only real fact is that you are an imature jerk. You can go back to your sandbox now little boy.

PS. I don't believe that you won't be back under some other name because this wasn't really about proving something it was for your own gratifacation.

It seems to me that he proved that there are too many gullible people here. Now you're mad because many of you were made fools of. Too bad.

I agree that what he did was a pathetic waste of server space, but on the other hand, many of us were entertained in the process.

No hard feelings here, Mastergateing. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

IT WAS ME!!!

MUHAHAHHA!!!

HAHAHAHAHA... HA HAHA!

Ok it wasn't, but can I take credit for it anyway?

You know the adage, if it smells like sh!t, and tastes like sh!t, then it must be, wait a minute, how do we know what Sh!t tastes like in the first place?

Obviously you've never eaten at my sister-in-laws house.

I agree, stick to the old timers. Sometimes some genuine info comes this way, but it ussually isn't more than a few days ahead of schedule, or it rarely, if ever, has all the details of a major release. Maybe a shipit here and there. We only get scraps, but it can be fun to dream. In the end we don't ever want Apple turning into M$, we like the sense of embattlement, so do you, just admit it! Revolutionary hardware might be nice, but that isn't what makes people passionate about macs.

BTW, this isn't the first time something like this happened...I recall this happened on the old AI at least once...and it wasn't the MR thread...some jerkwad pulled a similar stunt then like 2 days later admitted he was all BS.
post #109 of 110
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

I just remembered something, very faint in my memory, but there...someone did almost the exact same thing before another MacWorld when AI was up before...down to a very similar revealing post at the end...hmmmmm...

Oh, and by the way, I have posted hoaxes before. Anyone remember my iBook one?

'Cept, see, everyone believed that one, even applenut, and I had a picture too.

Not only isn't this the first time this has happened, it's not even the twentieth time. You'd think after dozens of such hoaxes, people would be a little more cautious about some dorkwad posting "I can't tell you how I know this, but you can definitely believe my source's info..."
