Foolishness

I've seen a lot of posts on my friends list this year with warnings that the posters don't like April Fools day and will not appreciate any pranks. I'm rather saddened that people need to make these kinds of posts. Do otherwise sensible adults really think it's amusing to play cruel pranks on their friends? Spoof news articles is one thing, but actual personal pranks seem like the kind of thing that belongs in the realm of primary school bullying.

I'm rather relieved to see that LJ is doing something obviously silly, rather than anything actually annoying or deceptive. Considering that they announced the introduction of ads as a past April Fools joke, and now they're actually in the process of introducing ads, anything on the level of some of their past unfunny and vaguely plausible pranks would be in pretty poor taste.

Anyone like to restore my faith in humanity?
