That's part of the problem with today's technology based society, it assumes such a lot. There were a few, including the 'joker' who pointed to the thread with its 'solution'. Perhaps that appears the answer, but not if you couldn't actually access the site to see it!

What a bizarre comment. When the pubs reopen next week, if the labelled front door leads you off somewhere else because the landlord is having a joke and you just can't seem to find a way to the bar, what would you do? And who would you be irritated at? The landlord or your own lack of directional sense?

I think that I fell into the midly irritated but not going to lose any sleep over it category. I thought a bath supporter had hacked the website for an April fool, to which I actually thought kudos to them. Couldn't get onto the site for quite a while and only discovered what the issue was when I used another device to try to access the shedweb Web address. Think that the idea was a great one but leaving people unable to access the site and not realising the reason why might have backfired a little. There may be people out there still unable to access the site for all I know.

Life’s too short to get upset about something like this.


Classic ShedWeb contributor resorting to unnecessary name calling/ abuse because some posters have a differing opinion.

As the poll is anonymous how can this be abuse? It was a cheeky poke at those who like to throw around words such as snowflake and woke. Nothing to get upset about, take care everyone.

I believe that it was you who used "snowflake". Trying to dismiss it as a joke is as odious as your first posting which I have already suggested was unnecessary.
For the record I was amused by the April Fool stunt but was annoyed that the perpetrator had not considered not was aware of the consequences.

Not particularly bothered either way, although probably not worth it for the resulting kerfuffle to be honest.

I’m not going to make any judgements on you stevieb but do they have the concept of April Fools in your country?

It was clearly a joke and I’m certainly not the first person to use snowflake on this forum. But fair enough, can’t please everyone. Have a great day.

Sure do. In mine it ends at midday and things revert back to normal.

It did seem to drag on for far too long. Personally, upon first viewing it was mildly amusing. Funny, is a stretch too far! However, as pranks go, I would not give it 10/10. Each to their own. Happy Easter all.
