mr apple was a user most notable for the events following his automatic ascension to Gold Membership in March of 2011.

In the run-up to the date of his ascension, Golds in the GMF derided his posting habits and declared him unworthy of Gold Membership. When he became a Gold Member in March of 2011, he was ruthlessly bullied by the other Golds. In May, three consecutive versions of the "☂ Kill Time Topic" were titled "Fuck Off mr apple."[1][2][3] Gold Members hacked his Facebook account and harassed his mother.[4] garry initially banned several Gold Members for their behaviour, but then conceded he didn't know "who the main assholes are." Instead, he decided to make mr apple a mod so that he could ban anyone who harassed him further.[5]

mr apple quickly got to work, banning 21 Gold Members, of which 6 were permabans. Jaanus reversed some of his bans and was demodded by garry. mr apple, saying that he "didn't want a mod to get demodded over all this" offered to permaban himself if garry would remod Jaanus.[6] garry agreed, and so mr apple committed suicide with the ban reason "How do I ba-". mr apple's bans were not reversed however, with the exception of Jimbomcb who was silently relinquished of his one-month ban.

mr apple later on was unbanned, then requested to be permabanned in 2012. He was then unbanned again in 2013.
