The truth...

is that this got boring. Arguing over nothing is a nice way to spend some lazy summer afternoons, and spikey and kela were quite amusing...but that can only go so far.

I also got pretty frustrated at so many of the rumors being...well...deal wrong. I began to adopt a "wait and see what comes and don't think too hard about what might come" approach, and I think I'm happier (and certainly much more sane) for it.

It's nice to see that the boards are still alive and well, though.

since you have left, this website has become much more than a rumors board...general discussions is our "nothing related to mac rumors" discussion board and it is a lot of fun

we need your ivy league input...but since you have been gone, a dude from a baby ivy, ftaok from drexel univ. in penn, has come onto these boards

so you must enlighten us regular minds;) :D

oh my

thanks for the link to the old thread. i first saw spikey while still a lurkster in december of 2001----but never did i see a thread like that.

it was like jefhatfield innocently stumbled into some bizarre self-serving performance art ( and somehow escaped, intact ).

Oh please...

Ivy league? Haha! I wish.

I imagine I said something like that to upset our friends Spikey and Kela!

Oh, someone who likes to argue... welcome back.

I'm salivating. I look forward to some good intellectual discourse.

(I just like to argue, that's what I do for a living)

There hasn't been a good arguement in a while, has there. I was sort of hoping to see more from the Cleo - mymemory post-off, but that never really materialized, mymemory never came back to back up his side of the fight.

Hopefully that will change soon.
