Anyone who has been to Fool's Paradise will not know it until someone has burst their bubble and the illusion is all over. Surely we have all had an occasion in our lives when we are been blissfully happy living in a situation which we believe to be true only to find it was an illusion in our head ... that the people around us were not as good and special as we thought there were ....... the promises made to us were never ever going to come true ......... we were in fact being cheated and living an illusion based upon a lie. Yes Gem, I have lived in Fool's Paradise but can assure you that I packed my suitcase and left from there a long time ago !!

Fool's paradise is an illusory state of well being. The management is thinking that with new features introduced every thing is right with the forum but all is not right. There is lot of bitterness, lot of a b u s i n g going on.
