    The one that really got me was when the site that was distributing Naruto fansubs (which is technically illegal but no one cares because they aren't making money off of it) redirected you to a page with the FBI logo and text saying that the site was shut down and they have a log of everyone that illegally downloaded pirated episodes and would be following up on it.

    I don't believe it was an april fools joke. It was supposed to actually die at the end of the month, but was recent;y picked back up.

    The popular PC file download service was closed late last month after its owners, Ziff Davis Media (who were trying to offload the site), failed to find a buyer. Yet no sooner did the site close than, with its value crashing through the floor, it seems somebody stepped in to save it. A message on FileFront's website reads:

    FileFront has been acquired by the original founders of the site and will NOT be suspended as previously announced. This is NOT an April Fool's Joke.

    Several more paragraphs of that make it rather clear that, yes, this is not a joke. As of writing, all "previously suspended" services are up and running, and the new/old owners "look forward to improving FileFront and serving the gaming community for years to come."

    So, you're saying that it was an April Fool's joke?
