I would like to appeal that you flag all uninspired april fools pranks until april second.
The truth of the matter is that april fools (Which I think some have called the "hackers holiday") has been ruined by oversaturation
and PR departments. Instead of being a funny unexpected string of pranks and absurdism, the experience has become a droning hum
of buzzing marketers and disrupted services.
By keeping the front page pure, it may be possible for a few good pranks to actually surprise and entertain.
