Yup. Social experiment over. I'm actually banned now. This isn't an April Fools joke.
Contrary to apparent popular belief, I wasn't banned for the whole "Banned." user title experiment. In reality, the ban was warranted by something far more idiotic and easily avoidable.
I suggested in a thread regarding April Fools jokes made by other websites (i.e. Google) that one should go check out a certain shock site involving naked, saggy septuagenarians to go see their "hilarious" April Fools prank and I forgot that it counted as telling users how to find porn. Unfortunately, despite editing my post, I was banned by JackalUK. He probably saw the unaltered post before refreshing the page and inevitably brought the wrath of his banhammer down onto my ban-nail head.
Well. I'll be back in the Pit in a month from now. Until then, I can concentrate on more important work. I actually was thinking about requesting a ban recently for this reason. Despite this, I'd still be glad to have an early unban, because to be frank, I'm always reading and rereading the rules to remember what's okay and what is nay, and I still can't believe that I was banned for, I repeat, an action this idiotic and easily avoidable.
Moral of the story kids? I'm an idiot that made a really dumb yet catastrophic mistake. That, and that you should always think about what you're gonna say very carefully before actually going ahead and saying it, 'cause ya might end up dragging a tin cup across them metal bars like good ol' uncle Wolfie, ya hear? (cue sweet-ass blues guitar solo)
I'm still lurking as an unregistered user on the Pit just to get with the times, that way when I make a comeback, I'll know what's been going on. Also I'll be UG's perverted voyeur for that period. Ladies?
UPDATE 4/3/2012 - Damn, the mods don't check the FotB very often
