Hilarious!

Looking at the html behind those options I think it is real, no April Fools. Many be there was an automatic update to something last night?

I hope this gets sorted soon! I've spent the last hour or so removing the ban status on users. And there are more to go! Stop pushing the "Ban this user" link please people!

I've started filtering out the user banned moderator notifications, my inbox was getting too full of them!
