counting 0-pt infractions, subego has 5 today, and it looks like starman had 6. I see them on your profile page.

I must have deleted one of the PMs. Six, huh? Not bad after 16 years.

This reminds me of a kid talking back to a teacher after walking at graduation (because I saw it happen last night).

One of the previous ones was a joke, so I think I may have somehow guessed correctly.

I remember one was rescinded. I'm not sure how that shows up backstage.

49 infractions, the first of which, in 2008, was ironically in a starman thread called "Bringing the Lounge back to its former glory." That thread is a sea of pink deleted posts.

And I remember that thread. That's about the time I almost checked out of this place because it was no longer fun for a time.

The first one is marked as a "Test infraction" in the comments. Other than that, I think that the points just expire directly instead of after two weeks or whatever.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

How about Gossamer? I retired that username after 4999 posts.

Can someone make my post count 100,000? I just want a taste of those colored stars.

edit: I think I gave the password for Gossamer to Dakar one time for use on April fools or for kicks. That sounds like something I would have done.

I remember now. It was like what just happened where I set myself up for it.

I'm pretty sure I asked what infractions looked like on the CP.

Which brings up a good question - how many people had multiple names (not Ca$h, we all know that).

And of course, Dakar had like 5 (?).

Scandalous Ion Cannon had a good number.

Ugh no, but I can imagine.

It's been bad enough in here with the console fanboys/haters. I don't want to have to "debate" Macs and iOS all over again.

Also.... if it's possible to backup/restore and host this same forum somewhere else, that would be awesome. (Of course that all depends on who actually owns the 'bits').

I wonder how much space it takes up after so long.

That's not what I'm talking about.

I'm talking about the ads. All. Over. The. Place.

On the left side.
On the top.
Sliding in mid-read.
Mid-thread.
With audio, without audio.

It's awful. Just go to android central's forums and you'll see.

Of course if the new version was invite only, the owner need never know.....
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

From what I can see, Dakar had at least 6 including the Hetfield one, Kevin at least 11, bstone around that number as well and Rob's were too many to list. Other than that, there are a lot who changed their name once to avoid a ban or because they wanted to distance themselves from an old persona.

2 infractions totaling 12 points. 1 week-long vacation from the PWL. Not bad for 15 years given all the battles in there!

I've had a MR account for ~9 years, it isn't the same. The forum is too large so there's no sense of community... The problem with any Mac site now that Apple is popular.

If you're feeling left out, I'm sure any of the Mods would be more than happy to drop a hammer or two on you, if you ask nicely.

Yeah. it's like this place is obscure enough for the "true Apple fans", yet might have become too obscure.

It wasn't quantity. The ads made sound, or were offensive, or scroll themselves down the page...

I'm more than willing to Adblock-whitelist sites I want to support, but not when bullshit like that happens.

Maybe we should go out with an infraction earning party?
