Yeah, this year's April Fools gag was a lot more obvious than usual, but I wanted to keep things very tongue-in-cheek to avoid any actual confusion (aka legal issues).
It would be cool to have a sole sponsor for the site, but that just isn't the way to do it. The user backlash on IGN caused them to revert back to their original format. I'll attach a screenshot to this post, so you can see just how truly horrifying it was. :)
Yeah, I read you, man. As it happens, I'm not a uthor of these great thing, merely a intense fan. That includes fanfiction so if you haven't left in disgust by now, http://www.outpost-daria.com/ep501.html happens to display a actual episode from a then-popular show detailing this kinda nonsense. Further, this was amplified in Choice of a Skewed Generation , which was insdpired by a real-life sell-out about as bad as your own example, Tom. I give there, that the world may know, however sweet it makes itself seem, until this ends, it will continue to *SUCK*. The pic is, by the way, of me so hitmen and groupies may find me. I work Fast Food. I wouldn't mind either.
