    I was doing some work on the desk, and as I picked up a pencil, the tip brushed the side of my MBA.

    Is there a surefire way to remove the marking without damaging the anodized aluminum?

    Jesus, it's just a goddamned pencil mark. Use a pencil eraser and move on with your friggin' life.

    Don't waste your time or money buying some special "solution."

    lol while I agree with you... you have no idea how deep the ocd goes in these forums and around the world.

    Don't worry.

    There are plenty of crushingly obvious examples of massive, debilitatingly inane OCD here at MacRumors.

    It's sad really.

    But that's the Internet for you. People are more interested in gaudy self-aggrandizement than common sense or the twin tenets of RTFM/STFW.

    Even if we could spoon feed these OCD nut jobs some common sense here at MacRumors, it won't help them deal with the other 99.8% of their lives. These people need professional help to help them with their systemic problems.

    How much do you get paid to contribute to the MacRumors forum? Yeah, I thought so. Me too.

    I come here for laughs, not to play discount psychiatrist. Heck, even Lucy from "Peanuts" charged five cents. And those were Sixties dollars.

    This might be a first-line therapy for some computer-related OCDs.

    LOL, that's funny and rooted in common sense.

    It will never fly with 99% of the OCD addled people here. That Newhart episode is only humorous to well-adjusted people.

    Shall we have this thread made sticky, if only for the "Stop It" skit's sake? ))

    No need to be so self-important. What's wrong with a thread looking for home remedies I might not have thought of? I wasn't sure if the aluminum was anodized, and if an eraser could damage it. Is there something OCD about wanting to remove a mark without doing further damage?

    Spit on your fingertip. Rub.

    Put a drop of water on a piece of toilet paper. Rub.

    Closing as the OP has his answer and the thread is off the rails
