[Misc.] April Fool

In April Fools' Day, 2003, I joked my reader. I pretended that my blog was cracked that night. It's quite successful -- many readers supposed that there was a critical security vulnerability in Movable Type, even half year later.

It did affect the reputation of MT and my blog. Suddenly, I lost. I know that my readers will no longer read my blog as easy and comfortable as before.

This thing was mentioned all the time in my presentation about blog. I explained how important role does trust play in blog. Further more, I made two decisions: first I added a category [What the F**K?], archived all things shouldn't be taken serious; and I stop play April Fool in next several years.

No, I don't drop my humor. But I now understood that real humor won't hurt people's trust to you.
