Yeah, at first I thought it was a total April Fool's hoax also, but considering it's well after April first, it can't be false. And if it is... that's grossly unfair. April Fool's Day is supposed to be just that. A day.
As for the people with the trolling usernames, well, they have all of April to change it. If they don't, well, they kind of deserve the virtual pie in the face for not paying attention. XD
