Does Apple own MacRumors?

I just read something and realized that MacRumors is partially owned by Apple? But the founder is Korean I think (land of Samsung Galaxy phones). How does that impact the discussions? Would Korea benefit if Apple fails? Or would MacRumors benefit if Samsung fails? Just wondering how you draw the line if this was true.

You've been a member here for 5 years. You should know the answer already. From the Forum FAQ:

Who are the MacRumors staff?

Arnold Kim (user arn) is site owner and Editorial Director.

Please stop posting dubious material. Your last few posts have been proven to be ridiculously untrue, yet you keep promoting dubious discussions, and when someone disagrees with you, you just reach another dubious conclusion.

Are you really gullible enough that you believe everything you read on the internet and repost it like fact, or are you trying to troll or something?

My guess is that he's posting merely to draw attention to his own site that's linked in his signature. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together and access to Google would know all about Arn and MacRumors in just a few seconds.
