Here's an interesting one

Have someone forward to you their latest Tech Republic "Daily Digest" email.
Open the email, and click on a topic link. Make sure you're not automatically logged into your own TR account. Post a comment. Notice who TR (and everybody else) thinks the poster was: the person who sent you the email!

The April Fool's part comes when you notify TR about this little glitch. Their solution, and I quote: "Go back to the comment, flag/report as spam and the site moderator can remove the comment..."
