btw imho ymmv

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.

Dude, did you see the "announcement" that the BBC had replaced Russell T. Davies with Rick Berman? People went apeshit. And JJ Abrams making a prequel for Babylon 5 starring Jessica Simpson? And JKR writing a new Narnia novel?

The entire Internet was on crack all frakking day yesterday.

No, all I remember last year is the Archaeology website proving the existence of zombies throughout history, and the Star Trek website announcing something dumb for the upcoming movie, which later turned out to be less dumb than the truth.
