Hi all - I found this at MacRumors:

Here's mine, running Leopard:

Anyone know if there are ways to change the system theme? Thanks.

I'm adding every screen name to a new AIM account and spamming them endlessly with sek slander.

And the Seinfeld/Gates MS ads.

I reported it 3 hours ago . The mods either disagree, don't care, are lazy, or aren't here.

I haven't used the new iMovie yet, no. Am I to believe there's a new version for download at Apple? Not that it matters since I never use it but, you know, why not.

The real iMovie he's talking about is the old iMovie.

I just noticed I'm almost 10% of the way to a new account. My PPD is the same as the last one, though.

So...you keep apps you never use in your dock? That's horribly inefficient, and I hate you as a person because of it.

I feel like our banter is going to trigger another "Get rid of the Lounge" feedback thread at any moment. Bets which loser makes it?

Usually it's someone I barely even recognize that posts in the lounge sparingly, or at least not enough to appreciate our cheeky humor.

To be fair it is the ONLY item I have in my dock that I don't use...in fact your berating has actually made me take it out, so well done......ass.

So did the mods move this without reading the content or is this some kind of passive-aggressive version of locking?
