it seems to me that the internet ain't no place to prank for april fools. i've seen several icky things that were meant to be funny and pull people's legs go horribly awry. pranks generating comments numbering in the 70s and 100s threatening to leave communities (not only on lj) and saying really mean things about mods. since there's no tone, no visual cue for people to see to help communicate meaning, as we all know, things get misconstrued way too easily. and apparently people are just feckin' stupid as well. i'm just sayin'. sheesh. glad that's all over and we can go back to lj wank as usual.
