Ha Ha very Funny team MacRumors.
You have destroyed my faith in humanity....

So why don't you just come on over to our forums and ask people to jump ship for all of us to see?

Like I'm doing right now....

Fellow Folders on the MacRumors team....come on over to a team who wouldn't even think of stooping to the levels of trickery that team MacRumors has shown it would do.

And after all who's closer to being the #1 Mac Team anyway?

Think about it!

MacAddict4Life Team 18 (http://macaddict4life.tjprevite.org/)

What exactly are you talking about? I have absolutely no idea.

Did someone hack your site?

That about sums it up.

At least Team MacNN joked about doing it but never did....

And I don't blame any one user or the leadership, but somebody did it?

That would be a no.

I'd like to know exactly what happened and not stir things up any more. If something not quite right happened, we should know about it.

Ah
From there site
"Thu Mar 27, 2003


Our trust is shattered!



I left this site wide open on our very public forum, because I had a sense that people into Folding@Home wouldn't really care to play childish games with this information.



I was wrong....it seems that MacRumors.com being the childish cretans that they are, decided to make a change to the team website and attempt to direct potential folders to their team instead....



Feel free to blast them publicly...I intend to! "

Um... I don't think were so stupid to publicly do that.
Why would we do that? At all...?
Were gonna pass you... who cares, its about helping people god damn it.

No one here would do that to you.

Ah, that is truly unfortunate. I hope it doesn't cause any problems now that its fixed.

I had no idea about it, but I'm not really in charge of the folding here. I'll discuss it with the organizers and see if anyone knows anything.

Please accept an apology for the prank. Do you know how long it was up and if anyone signed up for the wrong team?

Thanks,

D

hmm...thats going to far guys..

its kinda funny if you look at it from a neutral side but it is way out of line.

But the fact is somebody did, I feel the same way you do.....and I was quite surprised that anybody would do it.

You guys will do everything I see? That makes no sense, we would have to do it before you could see it done my friend, though its obvious you want us to start some kind of immature board battle, its not going to happen. The Macrumor team doesnt make a habit of flaming the other teams boards.
Do we? Perhaps I'm wrong, heh.

MrMacMan
Mar 27, 2003, 10:56 PM
Anyway, no one is stupid enough to take members from a team that seems to be having their own problems.

As one of a good 100 active members of Macrumors team folding, we send our sincerest apologies.

No only LWD came here and posted, we never really did anything after we passed them. But whatever...

We don't retaliate.

Edit: I'll check what happens overnight...
Lets all try to get this resolved... lets not get a flame war...

Now THAT makes no sense... anyway...someone from this team...I don't know who...decided to "edit" our website. It happened we all saw it...and it was squashed pretty quickly..won't happen again...but it deserves attention...that's all I gotta say!

Maybe so, do you have a screenshot because obviously no one saw it untill you posted this...

And if you read his whole post that would have made sense.

BTW, why not put a password on the site? Wouldn't that have solved everything...?

That system seemed very open according to what your saying...

Does it really matter? We will pass you either way.

We are completing about 25% more WU in a week then you.

If anyone would do this, I would guess it's LittleWhiteDog who are sore losers.

Then again, ScottieTheKing from MacNN wasn't too happy the other day.

Alright hopefully this puts an end to it.....

mc68k is right, it's pretty trivial, especially since it wasn't up there long. 4 of our team members saw it, one of them (not me) changed it back.

It happened, it's not cool. It's not what I, and judging by the sensible posts in here, you, would expect from fellow Folders.

I apologize for coming in all guns blazing...I've toned down the website.

Great! :D Sorry again about this little fiasco - but if it had happened to us, well, we'd probably act the same.

As for folding? Well I consider us all to be winners.

*cough* *cough*

SETUP!!!!

what whiners. a good three days after it is posted here that we are gonna pass em, they set us up with some bad publicity. then they try to ignite a flamewar and stir up controversy.

whoever you are macaddict4life, crawl back into the hole you came from. you aren't deterring us.

why don't you post us the server logs and have everyone judge for themselves?

Mr. Anderson
Mar 28, 2003, 08:48 AM
ok, come on guys, this is ridiculous. Its over, stop trying to make something of it, you're only going to cause problems and then I'll have to shut the thread down :rolleyes:

Hardly! I can honestly say that I or anyone on our team is aware of what gets posted in here.....we really could care less if you pass us or not....just ask Team OSX....not even a whimper out of us or gloating from them.....hell we've even had some nice conversations with them just prior to them passing us


why don't you post us the server logs and have everyone judge for themselves?


They're generated at the end of the month, but you know what, I'm not going to waste 1 more minute of my time with this BS. It won't happen again....so that's it. Fold on!

Hopefully we can all move past this without any more bickering back and forth.

Yes, it's unfortunate that you got hacked. No, there isn't proof that it was someone from MacRumors.

No harm, no foul. Let's play nice! :)

Oh my God what a bunch of freaking geeks. Who gives a flying fck about folding anyway except for acne-inflicted, life-less geeks with nothing better to do with their computers but surf for porn while whacking off and try to hide it from their mommies. Oh, thats right, I forgot. AOL chatrooms.

I think folding is great to help with the medical/scientific industry, but arguing over who's team is the best, or who is cheating or whatever is the LAMEST thing I have EVER seen.

Sorry, but I HAD to say it.

:Mime stare blankly:

Bah.

Whatever, this wouldn't of happened if you just put a pass on the site.
a) probably not one of us
b) if it was, obviously the person is cowering in a corner.
