Some of us even went to two MPAA sites.

Bullseye, that was a very official looking document, probably would have got me to but not Bear, he is wiser.

I have to give credit to my bride for that one. She does website designs and rerouted the GTOL forum's index page for me to that graphic. I probably should have put it up for the whole day but I figured three hours should be enough to pull off a good prank. I received some great emails that's for sure. Thanks to all who offered their heartfelt support. About the only way this could have been more believable would to use the BATFE logo but I didn't want to overdo it. I figured that some folks would wonder why in the world ICE or Homeland Security would seize this website and figure out the joke. A few folks did but not until after sending me inquiries about the website.

Thanks to all and I hope you had a fun April Fool's Day.

R,
