    Ahahahaha, a member named "Anton Szandor LaVey." That's humourous.

    I too still have newbie status, but I visit MR nearly everyday. Since ~2004.
    Normally,before I am able to post, somebody else has already expressed an opinion similar to mine, or given the assistance requested.
    Meanwhile, coming here has greatly expanded my Mac knowledge.
    Bottom-line, some of us just like to read.

    So many memories. I was first on this site (under a different name, Mac_User) back in early 2002. When we had EyeLikeArt, JefHatField, and a few other older members which nobody on here even knows

    It's like a drug though. I go through withdrawals if I'm away from MR for any length of time! :eek:

    But mac_user joined in Aug 2005 :confused:
    So can usernames be reused?

    hehehe. How to get yourself banned:
    Announce you've got 2 accounts or that you've had an account and previously been banned... :D

    I'm glad that spammer is gone. :p



    Those threads are just asking for a resurrection. I tried, but it won't allow anymore posts since it's archived.

    May also need help navigating the site :p

    Not the best place to post your question mate :) Try the other forums as this is just for site news and feedback....

    Man, memories. I lurked for a year or so before I signed up, I rarely frequented the forums then, just the main site.
