Actually, ahem, the fact that such people frequent Mac-dedicated forums and no one has launched an OS X virus specifically to target them is really quite a testament to our community. ;)

In other news, Symantec reported indications of a new virus that exploits a security hole in all web browsers. It seems the virus only acts when the caps lock key is used in a text box within a website. The website can be any kind of posting mechanism or forum. No patch or workaround has been been established as of yet. :D

I think I did that ONCE, but not on this forum. Something really amazingly spectacularly fantastic happened but I can't remember what.

The interpretation should be something like: People who throw rocks shouldn't live stoned in their houses. :D

From the BSD fortune file:

Welcome to UNIX! Enjoy your session! Have a great time! Note the
use of exclamation points! They are a very effective method for
demonstrating excitement, and can also spice up an otherwise plain-looking
sentence! However, there are drawbacks! Too much unnecessary exclaiming
can lead to a reduction in the effect that an exclamation point has on
the reader! For example, the sentence

Jane went to the store to buy bread

should only be ended with an exclamation point if there is something
sensational about her going to the store, for example, if Jane is a
cocker spaniel or if Jane is on a diet that doesn't allow bread or if
Jane doesn't exist for some reason! See how easy it is?! Proper control
of exclamation points can add new meaning to your life! Call now to receive
my free pamphlet, "The Wonder and Mystery of the Exclamation Point!"!
Enclose fifteen(!) dollars for postage and handling! Operators are
standing by! (Which is pretty amazing, because they're all cocker spaniels!)
