Thought so, I still think putting a donate button at the top of the page would be a good idea.

A donate button would be a grand idea! Great prank though! Glad it's still free! I don't have the cash! honestly.

Good job. It had a lot of folks scratching their heads, wondering if that was for real.

I knew it was a joke right when I heard the tweet. Good one, though.

My reaction to the first announcement was surprise that Blind Bargains did such a common April fools prank. I was on to it. The additional FAQ post was a brilliant touch. I really started to wonder and get concerned at that point. I don't think I've seen a site take that particular routine that far. Very well done.

Silly me! I was fool enough to believe you. So glad it was a prank! I love your site and can't really afford the fee but was still considering it. Thank you so much for all of the information you provide.
