Well, Renegade started it, so I don't really have any originality to defend here. But I guess it would be fun to see Floorfiller react to the news...
I started it intending to get a couple of laughs, never to have people take me seriously. The fact that we could keep this shit up as though we were serious for 10 pages with more and more people piling more and more crazy shit on top as the thread progressed should really tell us something about the people we were imitating (we were taking the piss, yet we were obviously fairly believable so far as fundamentalist Christians, Muslims and templar knight activists on the internet go) and the people who believed us (in all seriousness, how the fuck did literally no-one catch on?).
I don't know what happens from here, because I obviously didn't intend for it to get this far. We could reveal the joke to them (I'm not sure there's much point given the lack of activity in that thread, though the reactions would be pretty damn funny), we could actually start debating properly (which would probably prolong the life of the thread) or we could just habitually emerge in our alternate personas any time a thread about religion / aliens / templar knights is posted until we're exposed. Personally I don't mind, although, in any case, I've sure enjoyed the past 24 hours or so...
