Do I know you? Or are you another dumb alias?

BTW I am not the one that usually hijacks threads. That would be the fanboys like ZX.

Get a grip.

BTW you know it's against the rules to make threads like this right?

Which would make you just as bad as the stuff you are trying to blame on me.

Congratulations.

Thanks chate. I really didn't mean for that to happen.

If you'd like to start your own thread about it, I would stay out of it.

no, that's ok. This just prove the whole MacOS X theming subject is still well alive.
By the way, i'm the writer of the GUI Customization booklet. It badly needs a major update. I've been pretty buzzy with Unifier and Sidenote lately, but i'll try to work on it next week. Maybe you would like to write an article on applying themes manually and without SS that i could put inside it !

PS: my login is "chatelp", not chate, and it stands for Pierre Chatel. So just call me pierre.

This is an old bait and switch trick that people have been pulling in here for years.

They start flaming someone, then when said person replies, they go off on a tangent how they just hijacked said thread by replying.

For example

Poster: I think Apple shouldn't do <insert whatever here>
Flamer: OMG who cares what you think? Stop posting here bothering people yada yada I hate you.
Poster: What, what are you talking about? Why are you obsessing over me?
Flamer: Oh everything is about you isn't it? You turn EVERY thread into a thread about you!!11


Of COURSE it couldn't be their flame posts that started.


This did work at first.

Then the mods became smart to the ploy, and now pretty much ignore it.

I'm truly hoping that, in typical Zimturd style, he will quote each of my comments and give his incredibly insightful and amazing interpretation of what he thinks about what I have said.

I mean really, isn't that why we are all here? I used to think Shapeshifter was a great program, but I have since switched to only using packaged GUI's. Why? The all knowing Zimturd says they are much better than SS. I've given up on using Smooth Stripes because Zim's version, Simple Aqua, is superior (Even though it has been left on the side of the road to obscurity for dead)

Take the hint Zimfire - Your continuous diarrhea of the mind has no place here at MacNN. People are sick of your opinions and self absorbed delusions.

If someone has to call you out in such a fashion, can't you get it through your head that maybe you should back off a bit?

Anxiously awaiting your "quote every sentence", incredibly long winded response.

... and the delicious irony of that response!
Michael: Hasn't everything been sort of discovered now by like Magellan and Cortez?

Buster: Oh, yeah yeah, those guys did a pretty good job.

i think everyone should calm down Even if i am the one that should have been annoyed the first place, i don't think that Zim deserve that!
People have different opinions, some express them in a annoying fashion, but you can ignore Zim posts if you dislike them.

I'd get that taken care of ASAP before someone eventually has to shoot you down from a water tower.

What is funny is, the author of said application has no problem with what I did.

Why you bitches still have your panties in a perpetual knot is beyond me.

I wouldn't have HALF the post I have if it wasn't for my fanclub.

It seems to be getting bigger too.

I should be raking in the dough with members fees soon.

Thank you!

And you show so much class too. Some class that someone like say, gdiddy should learn.

You've gained my respect.

You know, part of being a grown up is learning when to just shut your mouth. You obviously have a long road ahead of you to adulthood.

Eh, when being attacked with baseless accusations, it isn't being immature to defend oneself.

Posting personal attacks about how one should grow up out of the blue, when you really don't know that person, is not only immature but pretentious also.

See how silly that is?

Not that I believe any of it.

Just quit the silliness.

You are older than me also, you should know better.
