    "Mac users are nuttier than a fruitcake," Andy said.

    here we go again... if this [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] would kindly flush himself down a toilet, then i can get back to work instead of sitting on mac rumors sites all day.

    Since it's a hoax I'd settle for just setting this guys testicles on fire. ;)

    Don't want to go too far with punishment of a silly joke/excuse.

    Well I don't know about you, but this is what I love most in the world:

    1. God
    2. Family
    3. Pets
    4. Musical Instruments
    5. Macintosh

    So smashing Dalmatians with a club would be terrible, painting guitars pink and cutting off their necks would be horrible, and, uh, gutting a G5 and placing crap PC parts in the case would be awful.

    No wonder this guy got 1,500 e-mails. We Mac users aren't crazy -- this guy is! Nobody cares if a Dell gets gutted. Why? Because nobody cares about Dell!!! Do you think anybody would put a Dell computer on their love list below pets???

    Jared

    P. S. Just want to make sure you all know that I never e-mailed this guy myself. I would never stoop to that level. But I can't help but feel slightly sympathetic with his detractors. :)

    I must admit that even if I love my new PowerBook, I don't think a person deserves to die, have his testicles burned or go to hell, just because he destroyed his own Dual G5.

    Stupid, yes. Worthy of damnation, no.

    This hoax person certainly is entitled to laugh at the "insanity" of some of the Mac-zealots' mails he got.

    My ONLY 2 Cents:

    What PC is in display at the Museum of Modern Arts? That's right, NONE. Macs? The G4 Cube. I love to tell that one to Wintel Freaks. They have NOTHING to come back with: because they do not appreciate Art, or don't even know the MOMA exists.

    We got what he deserved. :) I still think his "explanation" is more of a cover to get him out of this jam. Don't mess with the Mac community. :D

    This is a reflection on Mac-users

    If the stereo type fits, wear it. Everybody dismisses Mac users as "zealots" and all those people who freaked out on this guy were lemmings falling into a trap. He exposed those Mac users for what they are, and in the process helped to further a stereotype and his agenda. Good for him, he totally won. The losers are the Mac users, especially the moderates (and the sane, if I do say so myself), for they now wear the same hat.

    But, back to reality, I don't really give a crap.

    My Macintosh has crashed once (700mhz iMac). That about wraps up every possible argument with a PC user. :)

    "I'm a parent, and if my son did something like this (hoax) I'd kill him."

    I didn't send him any e-mail since it was his own choice, even if it was a stupid thing.

    If this is a hoax that means the G5 in the first picture is safe, and that's all we want :)

    Well I'm totally against violence so that whole kill him thing is all wrong to me, but if his first story is true, he isn't the brightest person in the world. I mean I paid for all of my eMac. If someone was lucky enough for their parents to GIVE them a dual g5 is just a wet dream to me.

    Oh well it is sort of funny how we all blew up. Go macs though. I'm not ashamed to say I love my computer.
