    So, what happened to MacDawg??? Is he in the dog pound? Jail???

    This dude posted several times a day. Now nothing? I'm worried. Did one of you hurt his feelings or something?

    I'm still relatively new around here, so I don't know... Maybe he disappears for weeks at a time.

    Any theories?

    He is seeking counselling for his addiction to MacRumors. He should be back soon.

    I've been on the forums for quite a while now and the whole 'community' has changed quite drastically. There is no longer the feeling you are talking amongst 'friends'. It's more like who's quickest to shoot the other down for pissing and moaning about the same thing that's been posted a million times.

    This is the common fate of Internet meeting places. It is our responsibility, as long-time members, to keep the 'community' feeling as strong as possible...buddy!

    Does anyone know specifically why Tallest Skil got banned? I always wondered.

    I mean I know he would often put blunt (and sometimes rude) responses but I didn't know if it was a specific reason.

    And MacDawg is awesome. Hope he comes back!

    i have a somewhat long email from TS i can PM you if you want, he doesn't really say anything personal. he acknowledged his at times flaming responses but he said he doesn't know specifically what he said wrong that caused the ban.

    Perhaps it was his consistent breaking of the same rules that got him banned?

    And I don't really think it's right to be talking about another member if he can't participate in the discussion... Or to be sending out copies of e-mails he's sent to you...

    I have seen him on other forums (MacDawg) so I know he is still around. Don't know why he isn't here thou. One reason might be is College Football isn't going on right now... Second reason, he is still recovering from the terrible season Georgia had and the wonderful, Ranked #1, BCS Championship, undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide had!!! :D:D:D

    That is my theory!

    I can say with 100% certainty that MacDawg will be back. There is no possible chance of any other outcome.

    He must have been arrested like all of the players on his beloved football team.

    Awwwwwww, you missed me :)
    I am touched

    No, didn't have anything to do with my beloved Dawgs... they will be fine
    I actually thought Murray would be the starter over Mettenberger eventually anyway, cause he is a better leader (and obviously makes better decisions)

    Here is the real reason... I started a new job, and it has been demanding

    Actually, I got the call on a Monday and was offered the job
    I started the job on Wednesday
    I signed a lease on a new Condo on that Sunday
    And moved the next day on Monday
    That was about 3 weeks ago

    And I have been in Dallas most of this week... travel will be a big part of the job

    The down side is I was issued a Blackberry (yuk, I <3 my iPhone)
    And I was issued a Dell laptop (at least it is an i7 Latitude with Win7)
    The good news is I was also issued a Sprint Overdrive Mobile Hotspot
    (which I now use with my new iPad)

    My office is next to Lenox Mall in Atlanta (visit the Apple Store for lunch every day :) )
    I am on the 18th floor overlooking Lenox Road
    I have a corner office with windows
    Here is the view out my window(s)

    Anyway... thanks for asking about me... I will be back more when things settle down a little

    It must really suck not to have your little buddy around to do your dirty work. :rolleyes:

    Who cares about that kid? Not sure why people put so much steak in one of the more unintelligent members I've seen come along in a while.

    Yes it was one specific post. He never mentioned that to anyone but me.

    Its around accumulation of TOs and one specific post.

    This is correct. If he is not around and trusted you enough to send you an email, you shouldn't 'kiss-n-tell'.

    I bet you miss him most. Also, unintelligent according to you. I could well say something similar about you and be wrong, just like you are about him.

    Macdawg was gone for much longer (like a few months not that far back until he started posting again)

    Who remembers
    1) Lacero
    2) Tallest Skil
    3) Psycho Freak
    4) Mad Jew
    5) Multimedia
    6) Kati ta achoo

    Those were some of the most prolific posters I had come across. Lacero and Mad Jew used to dominate the forums like nobody's buisness
    Hmm, I noticed you are using his 'tar.....could it be?
