How fucking gullible can you be?

I'll admit that I thought I was banned when I tried to post but to think that you planned to change the site for good never even crossed my mind!

I think we need more Chinese-type laws where you're not allowed to breed unless you pass a test.

It's not that people are stupid, but alot of people forget about April Fools Day. It's like Saw, "You must never forget that you are playing the game" or some crap like that lol sometimes we just forget.......ok i'm shutting up now XD

I think the reason so many more people got tricked this year was because of the filters, April Fools to China Rules, was brilliant. Really confused the noobs because it was a lot harder for them to find clues letting the nooblets know it was April Fools.

Even then I'm still kind of stunned that people could actually believe it, lol.

I didn't think it would get much better than the McDonalds one from way back but this was pretty epic.
Good job guys!

it was honestly a good April Fool's prank--except for the color scheme. ughhhhh, that killed my eyes.

next time you do that kind of thing for an AF prank, at LEAST keep the color scheme bearable. yellow on bright red was murder.

It was really funny that the communist from Canada complained about not having freedom of speech.

So fucking hilarious. Definitely the best April Fools joke I have ever seen and probably will ever see. It was not only funny, but had an underlying message and hopefully increased awareness of Chinese censorship and the importance of freedom of expression on all forms of media.

You really outdid yourself this time Tom!! Also, it was awesome and pathetic to see all the people who never quite caught on. You must've received more PMs yesterday than ever before.

It's going to be near impossible to beat this next year though, good luck.

I think the real reason why it was reblocked is because of me, look at this!

I had a feeling it was all an april fools joke. Could've ended worse tho. I did however think that it was an impressibe april fools joke tho, the flashes, the design, it was all a perfect joke and it certainly did have its effect. Genius is all i can say. just genius

When I couldn't watch flashes or post in the forum, I had to figure that that was their April Fool's joke. I'm not surprised at the reaction to it as well.
