Yes, it's that time of year again where nothing you read can be trusted and you have to wait an entire day to see whether some news you heard from a friend is real or just them trying to "fool" you.

And who are we to buck that trend? This year's change of rule leading to yet more banning followed by the puke-coloring of our moderators was such a "joke." But without Reck's outrage I don't think it would have been sold at all. So I appreciate those willing participants in April Fools, particularly Reck's.

As always, apologies to anyone who was legitimately confused and upset by the April Fools.

Colors and what not will return shortly. The rule will obviously be re-revised.

Like the thing I don't get with these pranks: who is having fun?

Like a good prank should be like, it makes me angry in the moment but then I can laugh along once the curtain rises. This just leaves me tired, confused.

Building something on fake animosity is just eurgh

It was a fun drama
There's nothing that says that a fake can't beat the real thing.

You must not imagine that for beings like you and us there can be laughter. The low men laugh, and we envy them. But for us, the higher ones, there is no laughter, only an unending vigil, purely serious, stretching on into the night.

The bans were pretty funny when they first started.

I didn't stick around to see how it finished.

Imgur has a stupid game going on for 4/1 that is essentially "shitpost and bury all the content in shitposts" as sanctioned by the site.

It's super annoying and makes me not want to visit the site until it's over.

And when I say shitposts I mean unfunny shitposts.

Funny shitposts are okay but that's not what's happening.
