Putting aside the fact that I hate being played for a fool (It makes me cynical and distrustful of people)... I didn't actually read this until Tuesday afternoon (Even adjusted for the system being on Japanese time) so you caught me COMPLETELY unawares (I tend to simply disconnect my computer for April 1).
Could you folks do me a favor, please? Next year should anyone decide to pull a prank (Which I don't mind at all), would you post a "This was an April Fools joke" sometime early on April 2nd so that I don't fall for it and get bitter at you? I work hard to avoid folks on April 1 so I don't get played for the fool (That makes me -I feel rather understandably- bitter, and in this particular instance I feel suitably rebuked for extending a kindness and attempting to assist Ken). If you will just keep me from falling into your trap on April 2nd, I'd appreciate it. Should I fall into your trap on April 1st (Even with Japanese time), it's my fault and I will not hold anyone responsible, I promise.
I understand that I don't really have much of a sense of humor about it. I'm sorry. But I do the responsible thing and remove myself from being in the situation on April 1 because
I know that I have no sense of humor about it.
