I laughed at myself and enjoyed the ruse at that time. Swore I'd never get tricked again.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. It really only worked because it is so out of character. Google does something every year, and you learn to look forward to it (Google Racing? - 10/100 was the tip-off there), but here?

Its funny, but Ive got a feeling there are going be an awful lot of people that wont see the funny side at all
It's such an inflammatory topic, I was also surprised they would play this card. Sort of like joking about a terminal illness to me. "Ha ha, I'm not dying" .. ha ha?

As a happy aps-c user it was transparent enough not to anger me, but I know the angry ones are out there..

Equating Pentax FF with a terminal illness? I know you have more sense than that.

I agree on the plan part, after the price increases this week I'm not sure everyone will be happy
