Okay, I give up. SUP, you have officially lost me. Either this was:
a. real and you withdrew it due to reaction,
b. it wasn't real and was to split attention between basic account and interests, then give us one back so we would be fooled into thinking you listen to us,
c. this is a test of your local broadcast system just to see if we'd notice,
d. really weird accident of some kind.
e. social experiment! (by trobadora)
No, seriously. That's just odd. Anyone have a guess?
(Thanks to amireal for the heads up.)
