Mess April Fools Pranks in the 'Famous Threads' forum?

A failed experiment whereby board users were invited to advise the Senate, and instead attempted to replace the Senate.

That was what was supposed to happen, but Ozymandias made a mistake and accidentally deleted Spamworld. It's permanently gone, along with all threads that were there, unless they were restored from an old backup. Not happening, I think.

Why is it so goddamned hard to get little assholes like you to admit it when you fuck up? Is it pride? What gives you the right to have any pride?

To clarify: Ozymandias is Ghost Rider and not Nitrum?

Although if you really want to do it, I can give you the SQL to extract just that forum (or thread, with a little more effort) from the old database image and merge it into the current database.

Baucus cuts $600 billion in subsidies from health care bill
I would nominate this thread for the famous thread forums simply on the virtue of the information that it contains. It is short & sweet and to the point, on topic and it would be a good thing for people to review in the years to come.

Apologies for the slight necro.

The poster known as Xalev is a master archivist. He has achieved great reputation among many SDNers with his uncanny and vast repository of posts, chatlogs, images etc. Virtually everything of note that has happened in the SDN world is safely stored by him. So maybe he could asked about the lost threads ? There is a good chance he has a copy saved somewhere he can provide back to us for restoration.
I have to tell you something everything I wrote above is a lie.
