Now that OS 10.1 is OFFICIALLY out, when will someone delete the lame ol' threads about "GM"s "builds" and "release dates" -- it makes it hard to sort through presently valid topics.

Just a thought ...

Yeah....create a brand new topic in which you complain about how obnoxious "irrelevant" topics are.

Brilllllllllliant.

You were complaining about the number of irrelevant threads -- NOT the number of irrelevant POSTS within each thread.

Sounds like you're trying to make an argument where one doesn't need to be. I made a LEGITIMATE suggestion: that threads which are no longer read or of interest to members be deleted to make it easier for people to find what they're looking for. If you have a substantive reason why you don't think it's a good idea, fine. No problem. But it seems like you just feel inclined to rag on someone. Incidentally, my comment was not irrelevant, but your reply was non-productive.

You're the one lobbing accusations at me. I simply pointed out a humorous irony of your posting.

Anyway, try this for an argument as to why your suggestion is a bad one: maybe people like to examine how the rumor mill is, how accurate it has been in the past in terms of predicting product updates correctly, and the evolution of new products by build.

By the way, who cares if a person's reply was "non-productive"? Rumors sites aren't really designed to help people do their work "productively" anyway.

LOL

Take a look at this WHOLE thread and you'll see that I simply posted a comment and you then proceeded to rip me instead of providing constructive comments ("Brillllliant"). Do me a favor and give it a rest, have a heart. I like you john, but at times you can be such an ass. I have seen you go back and forth with people between being productive, informative, intelligent, pleasant, and then at times become sarcastic, judgemental, and basically a jerk (not to mention yor own erroenous statements -- after all, we are all just human). So just let it be -- I was just making a comment/suggestion. Ripping people for simply making suggestions is not the most product thing for any forum -- it, just like dead threads -- just takes up space.

Taliban people!!!

Why you both are so conflictive? Man, if you are that agresive in a forum I can not imagine you both driving down town.

No, but it's fun. :)

And anyway, when was I *ever* erroneous????

Don't think it's happened...not here anyway. When I was five, I may have made some mistakes. You know, advanced calculus and stuff like that.
