Buy it right away, but don't tell anyone for a couple weeks. In the mean time, slowly start removing the most annoyting posters, and a few of the good ones to really confuse the heck out of people.

Tell people that they're banned, but that you won't ban them if they can guess why they're being banned.

You should make the AO cutting-edge and add things like +1 and 'Like' buttons all over the screen!

Make it really easy to accidentally click the buttons too, especially in career threads.

That's how it works, right?
If two other people win, you get 20/22 of the prize instead of a third. Definitely worth the extra $19.
