    My answer to the poll is a mix of two of the choices. I’d definitely “spoil” a prank if the prank is mean-spirited. As for other times — sometimes I would and sometimes I wouldn’t. It all depends on the timing. Sometimes a prank isn’t mean-spirited, but the timing is just wrong; in those cases I’d spoil it.

    By “spoiling” a prank I mean anything from telling somebody outright that it’s a bad idea (in case of the mean-spirited prank) to quietly saying something like “I know you didn’t mean anything bad by this but this is not the time and place” (in cases of bad timing).

    I loathe April Fool’s Day – a day designed to prey on one’s trust in another person, and to mock them for that trust.

    I just assume they’re all pranks and do my best to not respond so I don’t give the pranker the satisfaction of a reaction.
