WTB: Macworld magazine from April 1993

 

I'm looking for a print copy of Macworld from April 1993 (with the Color Classic and PowerBook 165c on the cover). A friend nned this and I'm aware it's available as a PDF from a few places online, but I'd like an original copy. Anyone have one they're willing to let go of?

Is there a particular reason

Is there a particular reason why your post is an almost verbatim copy of one I submitted back in 2016?

Perhaps they are a replicant? Relax, it's just a Voight-Kampff test.

 Probably a spammer. This is a creative new tactic, though, to inflate one's post count.

 Yeah, this was my thought too. It's been a while since we've gotten forum spam; most of what I've removed has been in the blogs section.

lyonnnw sent a bunch of users

lyonnnw sent a bunch of users the private messge:

"Have you checked with Malic via xxstardomx @ aol.com,he has a [title of your WTB post] he wants to part with."

I sent Malic an email, inquiring about one of the items. He responded with some photos of the item from an old eBay auction, gave me a price, and said he takes payment via Zelle. I inquired about PayPal, but Malic only has "bank Zelle" because he's "just an old school man". Zelle does not have buyer protection. I asked if he had any other Apple II stuff for sale and he answered "I don’t have other Apple II stuff." even though he'd messaged numerous members offering to sell them the obscure Apple II parts they were looking for.

He said he was in New Orleans so I asked him how far he was from Gretna. He said 914 miles, which is actually the distance between the fake zip code I gave him and the fake zip code he gave me. I told him I have a brother 14 miles away in Gretna, LA (I don't), and haven't heard anything back.

I've messaged the users he contacted and warned them.
