For the record, I hate April Fool's jokes. People are gullible, and conning people is never funny. If someone got hurt by a con, nobody would think it's funny, but the same methodology to make people look or feel stupid is revered as humorous. I think that's hypocritical. And it's not because I may or may not get caught out on a joke. It's got nothing to do with that.
It's about trust. Cons break that level of trust.
The world already does everything it can to take away our faith in each other. I don't see any reason to add to it.
