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." Gold Members hacked his Facebook account and harassed his mother. 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.
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. 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.
