    Wow. Happy April Fools fellow smamers!

    Somebody is either pulling my leg hard or the dude really is just this insane. I woke up to an email from APK this morning. He picked up right where we left off almost FOUR YEARS AGO. I checked the headers and compared them to his last email thinking this had to be a joke, but other than a few weird things like his timezone changing from -0400 to -0700 but his originating IP still being from NY, there is nothing odd about it.

    Wow. What a psycho. I basically told him to get bent. I imagine this won't go over well. Ahhhhh well. I was wondering what I would spend my time today doing and I guess screwing with APK just shot to the top of the list.

    How is everybody else here doing?

    I’m really, really hoping that your story about the email is an April Fool’s joke. :0

    Actually it wasn't. I responded. Not in kind either. Haven't heard anything back :)
