    April Fools is offensive and lame. Thanks, WordPress, for adding to my already high level of frustration.

    It is funny because the joke has backfired…WP obviously didn’t think about the difference in time zones…the joke doesn’t count after mid-day!! Had me fooled though…but i’m guillable anyway ;)

    It’s April Fool’s.

    Is this how WordPress is run as a firm? If it wants shareholder value in the $$$$$ millions with big global companies in the future? It is incredibly immature of them. Like boys and girls playing in the sandbox.

    Lol, really? Immature? I don’t think anyone who has stock in WordPress is going to think that this was immature. It’s not like they were going around deleting blogs or something that is hurtful to people.

    Will you please click into the OP of this thread and mark it “resolved”? Only the person who started the tread (you) and Moderators and Staff can do that.

    Lots of people have blogs as a part of their real works and monthly income, so don’t play with this.

    What’s even funnier is that now people are turning on each other…go with the flow…we’ve been had so take it on the chin and laugh it off ;)

    Haha, wow… @canalblues, like I JUST said, it was completely harmless. Annoying, yes, but it will in no way affect anyone’s life. Get over it :P

    @janvtala, I agree :)

    I’m thanking you in advance for blogging off now and choosing not to tell others what they ought to think or do, lest we respond to you in kind. Do read me?

    I hope you do read me because this is a technical support forum and exchanges lead to a bad place, whenever someone has the temerity to tell others what they ought to think, feel or do.

    Thanks for the alert! After refreshing the Stats page on my blogs, all seems to be back to normal. So as the police officers on UK tellie programmes say, “Nothing to see here, move along”. :)

    @ timetheif… This is also not a place for ranting. Silly me, I thought we had our own personal blogs to go talk about how much we dislike a little prank WordPress pulled today. I was just being honest; someone spoke their mind, and I did the same.

    But thanks for the advice.

    When you hover over April 1 on the stats bar graph is displays, “April Fools!” I got a kick out of it…thanks WP for the chuckle.

    Hey, my income DOES depend on my blogs, and I thought it was funny. After I picked my heart up off the floor :(

    Well it took them long enough to add the “April Fools!” to the stats graph! Just saying. ;-)

    I was not amused. In addition to my normal blog (which only gets 15-25 views on any given day), I had just started a new blog about adults with Asperger’s, which I am hoping very much will be of use to people within that community. I was naturally quite excited to see that it had jumped from 2 daily views to well over 100, and while I figured out pretty quickly that it must be a joke, I have to agree with several of the previous posters –

    It wasn’t funny.

    For those of us who are saying something we desperately want to be heard, it’s less than amusing to think that we’ve been heard, only to discover that an April Fool’s joke plus a spike in spam visits means that we have not, in fact, been heard at all.

    Thank you, WordPress for having a quirky sense of humor. I enjoyed the joke. As I tweeted earlier today “Ha, thought Huh? then laughed out loud after signing into dashboard of my blog. @wordpressdotcom playing #AprilFools prank” Did not want to give it away

    I also noticed when I hovered mouse over graph, the correct stats for each day appeared. Only graph was tweaked for April Fools effect
