My, how time flies.

I almost didn't even notice until it seemed that several people were taking a turn for the Borge.

Several bits of it were, which I knew was going to happen beforehand. It made me giggle a little, and that is all anyone can hope for. My giggles. Nobody elses. You have to hope for mine.

What's worse is that they keep changing. Also, 0 now becomes zero.

Ah, so it was a mod prank. When I first noticed posts being changed I thought someone might've been hacking.

Quoting someone's post doesn't remove the ballsweat, though. Everything's still filtered. So even when the madness ends there'll be posts that don't "change back" to normal.

This is annoying and s t u p i d.

It's not a prank, it's a chance for mods who work hard for y'all year-round to fool around for a few days. You can leave for a few days if it bothers you so much, but stop whining about it.

Normally I love the madness because hitting a filter is like uncovering a shiny gold nugget and it's awesome-fun, but the nūmbers thing affects almost every post here (including most of those, for example, in the science, māths, logic puzzles and mafìa subfora, where nūmbers are vaguely ìmportant for understanding), and that's already got tired for me. :?
