Give me a nanosecond while I zip back 1 year in time and tell the CSR members how you feel. If I'm successful, you'll never know it happened. If I'm unsuccessful and I damage the fabric of time, it might result in the end of universe. Wish me luck!

I came to this site because I have an inherant drive to help people, I have a lot of experience in the ability to solve sometimes with a hard search on my experience to be able to do this.
I do not like to be made a fool of, our mods did this, it hurts, you can delete and hide behind your assumed powers on this site; again what you did was wrong, and you can come up with any excuse you choose, it does not solve the equasion: What you did was wrong.

If I may- the emotion needs to be taken out of the gag; it was a prank, and nothing. Nothing was a personal attack, nor was the joke demeaning in any way.

Nobody is hiding anything, nor is there and power primadonnas in the mix of BOC staff. Just a bunch of normal people that are dedicated to making this the best site we can.

Have fun!

Ok, so you didn't appreciate the prank, we get that. I am sorry you feel hurt. However, it was not done as a personal an attack on you or anyone else. It was an April fools prank, that's all, which some found very funny, others not so much. Time to move on and let it go............

I was not an Aprils fool thing, it was a HOAX, it far went beyond the April fools day. Stop making the mods look good by your we got you, it was far too elaborate and hurt and upset a lot of members; there was no consideration given to the implications of the April fools day HOAX on this streight up club, now they cover it up by deleting their indiscretions!

It was not a prank that should ever happen on this site. I will never forgive them!

They can delete this, but, we will remember!

It looks like they are trying to delete the HOAX from the internet.

So, do you plan to "occupy" the site next? Egads- let it go, man.

I remember, years ago, a radio station here in Seattle said they were switching their format to country. Man that really sucked, I HATE country first of all and my favorite rock and roll radio station was totally going away.

This here was a great April Fools Day prank you guys. Nothing more and you pretty much "HAD" us all. My feelings aren't hurt, well.... but the world is good again and we're all still here. (Be glad I didn't buy the SKS)

The Weather Network aired one today. University students were besieged by Canada geese. The geese, who established a perimeter and were communicating amongst themselves, held one student hostage in the library. University staff and the local police were all playing along. Pretty good one.

Dude - what is your endgame here ? Ok, we get it, you didnt like it, that sometimes happens when elaborate jokes are played. It cant be taken back, it is now history.

You are right, it was a hoax, but all practical jokes are.

You have 2 choices at this point, one of them is to just move on, the other is to be envious as heck, then move on.

I made my point, many others did not think it was right, but the mods are still laughing and trying to delete all they can to remove it from the internet.
I wonder how many potential members we lost.
I will let go, it happened, but I will never trust our mods again.

My objection was that the mods ripped Sarah's left green thingie from its rightful place, dangling below her ID.

Sure, they waited for her to apply her anesthesia of-choice, from the trama of today's events.

Where is the outrage over that?

Did that assault cause her voice go up an octave or two?

Now that the "War of the Worlds" hoax is over its been replaced, but will she ever be the same?

The only proper solution is to banish the mods.

By the time I checked yesterday the writing was mostly on the wall that it was a prank - problem was it wasn't April 1 yet.

If doing an April Fools Gag - try to get the day right. Even an elaborate setup of this should have been better contained and with Mods/Admin doing this they have power to delete/adjust as needed to keep things contained.

I am all for a joke/prank but this was very poorly executed and I think that given the response from those that were pi$$ed about it there need to be some apologies. The big yellow box at the top screams - F you if you were duped and we are still laughing at you for falling for it.

People donate a lot of time to help people they don't know or barely know to keep them out on the water safely and affordably and for the people running the site to not acknowledge they made a mistake and apologize says a lot about character.
