Abimommy & Jacque played the April Fool's Fairies and dusted everyone on the April Fools Thread in TAO that day with a silly 'banned' title. Some members loved them so much they kept them.

They do something different every year. Getting 'banned' was quite a surprise!

Yes beware, getting to senior member and not picking a title may get you banned!

I was banned for suggesting a McDonald's thread...that was funny, and probably so confusing for anyone who didn't read the thread

What's up w/ quite a few members having "banned for blah blah blah" in the "title" area under their user name? It seems like an in joke... :

So, if we have "senior member" status, how exactly do we pick our own slogan before we're banned?

Abimommy and I were trying to find the perfect April Fools joke and I suggested we place 'Banned' under a few well known members names. I went to the grocery and when I came back she had banned half the members in TAO

That makes more sense! I saw all the 'banned' titles, and thought "Wow, this board must have hard core mods!"

I thought they were all written by people who had been banned on TAO and were poking fun at the mods!
