(Hopefully someone who matters will see this, eventually.)
Please just STOP these April Fools stories, lame or not.
With the other site's US focus, one can hardly complain. But if Soylent would rather not have the same US-centric focus, then maybe Soylent should understand that not every country make a big deal out of April Fools' day.
It is downright annoying to have the news site you frequent to become totally worthless for a whole day every year due to it being totally filled with fake news that pretend to be funny.
Instead of trying to see which ones are fake and which ones are real, I just skip the site for one day every year. If Soylent follows this tradition, then I just also skip Soylent for the same day.
Actually, I was involved with this bloody procedure, IPv4 was not happy, at all. It was quite bloody, but we got it done.
PS: It's true, I swear.
"Look at them, bloody IPv4 users, filling up the bloody address space with bloody devices they can't afford to bloody connect.""But what are we, dear?""IPv6, and fiercely proud of it!"
It would be easier if you just gave in and started making a big deal about April Fool's day yourself. Start spreading the tradition in your country! It's fun and harmless and an opportunity for people to test their humour and wit.
We're all gonna make is bro.
