    Any chance of a link to a screen shot?
    I missed the original.
    Sounds like I would have fallen for it too.
    I was having stomach problems this morning, I surely would have lost all control and soiled myself!

    I opened the page and saw the announcement.
    It looked very real! I was about to pay the $20 to visit the page but I dont carry my AmEx with me. On the way home it came to me that it might have been the April Fools Day joke. I hoped it WAS a joke! Now I know it REALY was!
    I wonder how many people tried to pay the $20... Did you take it?
    Anyway: Great joke! And scary too. Congratulations! I love you Guys!

  3. Yes, excellent question. How many people actually went and tried (succeeded?) to pay?

    Please give us the answer!

  7. There's a bit of a thread on it (the $20/year fee) at another BBS.
    THEY thought it was real, and were laughing about how many users we'd lose.
    I didn't have the heart to tell em otherwise

  9. On 04/01 I asume every site I visit is equal to a exploding cigar.

    It was intersting but would have figured a logo on the webpage from the MPAA etc saying the site is down to ... fill in the blanks.

    Was nice. Beats the junk over at /.

    Now how many clicked on the dont agree button?

  10. I just went looking for it, and couldn't find it.
    PM'd a mod, and he (bashfully) said it had been deleted

  13. I told couple of my friends about this and they too had a good laugh. Sure got me fooled for some time. Dont do this again or i may have to get a pace-maker installed.
    When I was born I was so shocked that I could'nt speak for 18 months.

    I am glad that I missed it. I would have been catatonic for awhile and then soiled myself. I don't do mornings well

    Thanks for the link SM

    I saw it, and I was 50/50 as to whether it was an April Fool or fair dinkum. I was fence-sitting because it wouldn't surprise me (or bother me, mind you) if here went to a user-pays society. I chose the 1 week free trial
    If in doubt, Google it.

    I will admit that I was fooled.

    But I later in the day I wondering why I was still able to access the RSS feeds and the tools that were linked.

    But of course it wasn't till today that I realized it was just a joke.

    Baldrick, that was a good joke.

    Does this mean the $20 will be charged back to my card soon?
    Nothing can stop me now, 'cause I don't care anymore.

  22. ViRal1, your $20 is having a well earned rest. The
    holiday schedule includes a number of European
    destinations, all visited in first class.

    In fact your $20 is having such a good time it may not
    want to come back.

    I think the word he was looking for was '*******'



    Do you take personal checks?
