BleepingComputer didn't get hacked, nor was there any April Fools. What happened is that a user (flagged as spammer, and now banned) posted in various Windows threads (with product keys involved) links to an online shop for Windows product keys (illegal). The user got banned, and their posts were deleted, hence why you don't see anything in these threads.
