Coax the Bunny!

Yes, it's true, CFB has been sighted:

Get rid of dryer sheet reference

Apparently he's lurking, and only posts if he feels an urgent need.

Can you post something that will coax him out of hiding? Use this thread to take your best shot! A big prize to anyone that can get him to post a response (PMs don't count).

There is a recent thread asking for advice on what brand of laptop to buy, and asking what brand of microprocessor it should have. If didn't suck him in then I am at a loss.

We have also been waving "bacon!!" at him in various threads.

Guess he's busy. It would be great to hear how Gabe is doing these days.

I bet sgeeeee could do it. Somebody get him back here to post a detailed description of why investing in the market is a better plan than accelerating paying off the mortgage.

I think "pancakes" may work better.

Would that "big prize" be Nord's bunny (after his demise, of course) suitably preserved for display, including a pancake on his head?

If so, count me in!

He ain't coming back. Not until some wide spread malware takes all the Apple/Mac/OSX computers hostage ( I used all forms in case he's 'searching' ). He's been waiting ten years to say "I told you so!".

Even then, I'll probably be able to say that my Linux machine escaped unharmed!

Seriously, it's nice to be able to have a serious discussion when someone asks about Apple computers, rather than his cluster-bomb FUD attacks.

Yes, I know I'm in the minority on this, and I'm OK with that, and I'm also OK with you pointing it out. I can laugh at myself, too.

I guess I should go post to the "Say something positive" thread now


Although (getting serious now), my comment did have a positive component to it - the people with questions on Apple computers deserve to have an intelligent response, and he often shut that out from them, or got the thread shut down with all his abusive statements. It was really silly. Let the person ask their question w/o calling them an idiot.

Wow, I'm tempting fate now

I swear to the heavens I will not eat another piece of bacon, will use my dryer sheets only once, will not show my current shade of lipstick and will not utter one sexual innuendo until he posts again

Well, that does it. I'm going back into exile until the sexual innendo returns. Sheesh, what is this forum coming to?
