Tell me about it, i spent hours confused!!

THen i figured out it was english, just scrmbled.

THEN i figured out that it's not scrambled, just written BACKWARDS!

Frustrated at first, but now i see the humor!

I just realised it is April Fools, but feel it is irresponsible for a site like this to play such a 'game'.

For a mom coming on who has postnatal depression and is looking for advice, or for a new mom struggling to breastfeed, with a baby slowly gaining weight and is being pressuered to bottle feed, they will spend longer looking for advice.

Wasting peoples time like this is NOT a joke!:

is the intuitive reply thing a joke too?
I was a little taken aback by it, but if it's for real it's the stupidest idea I've ever heard of.:

I agree, this is so lame. And I can't even see most the forums on the main page. When is it going to end?

If I was a first time visitor, I'd never return

I agree. Surprised to see it on a site that has so many rules.

Seriously, it's April Fools Day fer crying out loud. Don't you think it's ok to lighten the load and have a little chuckle now and then?

Guess when your 31 weeks pregnant trying to search for help on mothering about your hemorrhoids and can't find a flipping forum that your looking for nothing is funny.

I think it's funny. I especially like the way they made the first letters of the sentences about the Intuitive-Auto-Reply function spell APRIL FOOL.

As if the "Happy April Fools Day" at the very top hadn't already made me suspicious.

The intuitive auto-reply feature is not a joke.

I didn't like the joke, even though I figured it out, personally. Maybe a post or two having to do with April Fool's, but changing the whole front page to something very confusing is a bit overboard, IMO.

Yeah, no shit, you can't make a joke about sex, but they can screw with your whole freakin' day :

Another pissed off pregnant chic here. I'm 40 weeks 2 days and was coming here for some hugs and support, but screw it :
