freitasm: It's all fixed now!

Actually not. This was a prank we moderators thought about last year.

Here is the tally... In about four hours we let these "Moderators options" showing we had the following "fake bans":

4 freitasm  
3 BigHammer, cgrew, codyc1515
2 sbiddle, scottjpalmer
1 VinLew, aboylikedave, geek4me, hkan008, Ivor, joker97, kiitrc, mattRSK, Mattv, nate, nigelj, reven, samdouglas

What a good bunch you are, not clicking the buttons much!

Most of those must have been me!  I'm sure I did it more often than that too! :D  It was obviously a joke, so what's the harm I figured.  Tongue out

cgrew:
pageweon: lol yup

ive seen some fallout today over april fools jokes.. i'l see if i can get the perpetrator to post about it


Haha it's actually not that funny, (well it is) but not for me at the moment.. I told this girl that I'm dating at the moment that I won tickets to Fiji off the radio station and the plane leaves for 8pm tonight - so I said pack your bags and everything and that's us for a week in a 5 star hotel.

...Turns out when I pulled out the April Fools card she was not-happy-at-all and couldn't believe that I could have done such a thing. And now she's not talking to me at all..

Any ideas people? What should I do?

Ban her.

cgrew: Flowers have been delivered, $70.50 later..

Fingers crossed this works..


If you break up over that it wasn't a relationship that had any future anyway.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you though.

Wow wow wow gentlemen - one at a time please.. lol

Bazzer - I'm almost tempted to now..

Timmay - I'm seriously considering that anyway and cheers ;)

Joker97 - I'm a humorous kind-of-a-guy so she (I thought she already was) can get used to it or get over it to be quite honest. And no way, no holiday for her anytime soon, we've only been dating a couple of weeks lol lets hope though there is no other target.. (If your out there mate, what ever you do, do not pull a prank on her - period)

nakedmolerat - This could quite possibly be the case for her..? (Arhwell)

I've dated my fair share of women (and probably someone elses fair share too), but so far i've mostly avoided those girls. I dated one but she was so crazy and emotional it didn't last long before I offended her with some perceived slight or insult.
