The bottom line is that we all need to keep our brains in gear. The whole point of this particular forum is gossip. The fun is in the speculation, as no one knows what's really coming. We need to process what we read and be sure it makes sense before we take it seriously - and even then, we shouldn't take it too seriously.

Macintosh, I hold no hard feelings. You've done publicly what others have been doing privately for a long time. I agree with you that we need a reminder now and then to keep our credulity in check.

However, we've now had our lesson - we don't need any more of this. If we get a bunch of juvenile smart-asses posting nonsense constantly, this whole forum will fall apart. </strong><hr></blockquote>

I agree that the point of this forum is gossip, NOT LYING. What Macintosh has done is juvenile, but of course, he is a juvenile.

Macintosh - thanks for fessing up! You had YOUR fun at OUR expense. An apology would now go a long way for getting over this.

BTW - geezer1 - are you telling the truth? Or at the right time you'll own up? It takes a long time to earn respect, and just one moment to lose it.

Not at all. Isn't it possible that someone might think stunts like that are pointless, even someone who wasn't deceived in the first place? And this guy patting himself on the back and congratulating himself for the "intelligence" he exhibited, is pretty weak.

jwdawso, telling the truth about what? Own up to what at the right time? I don't understand you.

Come on! No one got hurt, Macintosh owned up, there's now no reason for the gullible suckers to get sore and high and mighty.

Macintosh, you hang in there. You did well on many counts, if I was grading you on your little experimental 'lesson' you'd get an A+. You had me, because of the iMac - almost! I wanted to believe but I've learn your lesson long ago. Keep it up, and as the saying goes 'don't let the b******s get you down!' </strong><hr></blockquote>

he never fessed up. he screwed up, gace out way to much info to be believable and then the mods gace us a hint to who it was. then he went on to this bullshit about how he did it "for the better of us" and to "teach us a lesson".

the kid is dillusional.

oh thank you for fixing my typo. no one would have ever figured it out had you not done that.
post #51 of 63
yea that makes sense. they'll have the fastest chip in the dual config.

do you even pay attention to what goes on anymore?

the fastest clocked chip is always in the least supply. why would apple have that one as the dual config?

think a little

Are you telling the truth about what you originally posted. My point is - how am I supposed to know that what you posted was the truth, if apparently it's okay to post untruths as long as "when the time is right, [untruths] are put right"?

"Come on! No one got hurt, Macintosh owned up, there's now no reason for the gullible suckers to get sore and high and mighty." AI gets hurt - the incentive to come to AI is the hope of learning new things about Apple. "If we get a bunch of juvenile smart-asses posting nonsense constantly, this whole forum will fall apart"

I'm not saying that there are not lies posted, and that Macintosh is/was the only one doing it. But we all are hurt.

WOW the more bizzare it gets the more I like it.... I am NOT Macintosh! I am ME, geezer1! OK? :o

The over-reaction of some of the people got me going, that's all. Macintosh pulled a fast one, but if we consider ourselves friends here, that's all it was. No reason for name calling.

But I still think that kind of jiggery pokery should be punished - moderators should take away Macintosh's username and let him start again - with the choice of only one name, something like IamJustANaughtyKid.... No hard feelings Macintosh, but we need a deterrent!

I guess you all know that I am gonna have to ride off into the sunset about now. All of my believers, I feel bad that I am not real too. I think I should let you in on one last secret before I go though. I have come upon a tantalizing little tid bit of information.

The people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.

And no Applenut I did not just now figure that one out. I know the Think Different ad by heart. Too bad all of you have no understanding of what it means to certain people to be able to see other peopls reactions to all aspects of a topic.
