As I remember, it was a poll to determine if you (or I) were the most annoying leading to a cul-du-sac dead end. That's when it came to me it's April Fools Day (right after I checked my nicked avatar at gravatar.com). Apparently we do have some fools onboard. However, they don't restrict that to just April 1, but April 1-30th, and ever other month. They have the sense of humor of the Tasmanian Devil and are almost as funny as the cartoon version, but not quite. I feel pity, oh so pity.
Damn, I missed the thumbs up, thumbs down joke.
