Wait, what if the mods aren't lying, but Patman acted mean as a cruel april fools joke? And he just assumed the mods wouldn't ban him?

Also, I know that this is going to sound weird due to the fact it is over the internet, but Patman was one of the people that you could trust in. He is one of the few people that doesn't completely hate the newbies.

Ok, now I'm sure its a prank. LadyM would never ban Gunner over that.

Also, is posting for a banned member against the rules?

I'm not banning Gunner, that was a joke. I do make them sometimes ;) Pat is not a joke.

Well, if this is all acting of them, it's a lot of acting, and a planned path would have been crafted. Pat would never say some things he said back there... I hope.

Also, though I'll guess we find out tommorrow, more evidence of a prank:Patman is still on LadyMpire's list of site writers.

Edit:Additionally, it says that one user is hidden.  I realized that that is one way it could be staged.

I don't believe it.

I mean, it's Pat. Sure, he may be a bit arrogant, but he'd never do something stupid enought to be beanned.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Well LadyMpire is a separate site from GS, so him breaking the rules here wouldn't necessarily mean that Lady M doesn't want him adding to her blog anymore.

Hidden users, I'm not sure what that is but I'm sure it would be easier for pat just to use a different account. I'm still waiting tomorrow for a final verdict but if this is a prank (Lady M  chimes in and says it's not) this would probally top Kaze's confession of being a boy.

Did Patman have his own forum?

I agree. Along with Daxx's tendency to slash into bad grammar and errors.

Neah, then we'll get banned if it's real.  On the other hand, would I get banned for posting an "Epic of Patman" detailing his rise and death in six months or so?

Actually, scratch that idea. Lets just wait for Patman to figure this out. This is weird, its like a mod getting banned.

Wait, wait no. This isn't happening its April 1st, just gotta keep telling myself that....Just a big prank that a bunch of other random not mods seam to know about...
