That HP setup was indeed a hoax, and I fell for it all the way. I didn’t set it up, but it ensnared me rather easily. Looking back, it’s laughably obvious that I should’ve been much warier and wiser. I should recognize such fabrications. Regardless, I accept full responsibility for my egregious mistake and sincerely apologize for it. I’m sorry, everyone. I got duped.
Update: Thank you all for the support – most sincerely. =) Pony fans *are* the greatest people in the world. I’ll carry on, and I’ll enjoy the ride with all of you! For now, Tek out.
