Yesterday I did a minor SOH April Fools prank where I replied "This user is currently being ignored" all over various polls, hopefully tricking at least one person in the process. Did you notice my prank?

I was fooled! I kept thinking "what the hell could F1Dan have done to get shut down?"

Yes, and it struck me as odd, due to the fact that I can not recall a time where we had a back and forth, and I would ignore you, it stood out quite a bit.......

I noticed, but I also noticed - because I looked - that your earlier comments were still readable.

I *almost* reported it to the developer, to ask if something broke in the software such that only new comments were bleeped, and existing comments were unaffected. *Almost.* I wondered if it was a prank - almost sent you a message to ask - but decided to wait until today or whenever I noticed another comment from you, in case it *was* just a prank.

I also wondered what you might have done that got you bleeped, since I don't think of you as a user who posts abusive or otherwise SOH-rule-breaking comments.

I knew that anyone who did a little digging would be able to find that something was amiss as it wasn't a fool-proof plan. Honestly, if that one would have fooled you, a SOH Hall of Famer (lets make that a real thing), I might have had retire April Fools pranks altogether because I couldn't beat it. I hope I didn't cause you *too much* of a headache.

I noticed, but I also saw where you were making normal comments.
You have commit to an April fools joke to make it work!

I made one "normal" comment as I was voting on polls yesterday and immediately said "oops, damn"
