It's me. Again.

Macgeek2004, Macgeek2005, Hobbes54321, Dr. Betruger, Macgeek2009, all of them. It's me.

I just dropped in to say hi, and to say that i've really matured alot, and to ask if you'd consider having me back on these forums.

Thanks.

People who have matured don't tell other people they have matured.

Yeah, it's really me. The green guy in star wars is yoda. haha.

By the way, many of my friends have gotten a kick out of that old thread where you guys PWNED me. Thanks for that. It was hilarious.

Can I please come back now?

Yep, it's really him - confirmed by IP addy.

Final Decision will of course be made in the Moderator's Pub - but I'm curious as to what the membership at large thinks.

So - enjoy this nonbinding poll.

YESSS.... I knew he'd be back. Macgeek threads are made of win.

Make yourself at home, good man... and stay away from the Murbot; I hear it emits microwaves.

You ask me for a hamburger.

Dude, if you are so bent on getting back into these forums, just pick a new name and post anonymously, politely, and intelligently. Announcing yourself like this gets you nowhere.

The internet can be quite anonymous... and you can take advantage of it to get a fresh start. Of course, seeing how you've already abused that system to a T, and ruined many, many "fresh starts"...



I'd be game for allowing him to stay, but not under this name. There's no way people will take him seriously -- regardless of what he says or how "mature" he is. Just start (yet another) account, and see if you can form a positive part of the community, without any preconceived notions.

Besides, it makes for a fun new game: Find the Macgeek.

Dude, Majost... I don't know about you guys, but back in ye olde days I would come home from school and scour these fora, reading new posts by teh Macgeek. It made my day.

You ask me for a hamburger.

Majost is right. If you were serious you would have just quietly created a new account and started posting like a normal person. Instead you're already flapping your arms over your head shouting, "Everybody look at me! Look at me! I'm doing stuff!!! It's awesome when you guys make fun of me!!! Wheeeee!"

As I said, what's the point?

I don't want to be dishonest. I want you guys to decide whether you want me back. That's why I posted and immedietaly revealed myself. I will accept any decision that the mods come too.

Keep in mind that the last poll choice traditionally represents BEER.

Although, note that cumulatively, the "yes" people outweigh the "no" people.

I'm not voicing an opinion here. Just wanted to say that the correct saying is "I'll be darned".

Anonymity would have been better. Now all you've done is paint a big target upon yourself. You're welcome if you have something useful to contribute here.

Of course going down in flames is always fun too.



I'm not crazy over the new name though.

I wouldn't have cared if a banned member returned with a new anonymous name and a new, improved, cleaned-up disposition.

Attention whoring upon first arrival like this, however, invokes quite the opposite reaction and does not indicate a great level of maturation.
