Just noticed the date... presumably this is an early April Fool's Day prank ;}  Yep - see e.g. http://www.techinsider.io/googles-mic-drop-april-fools-2016-3
A little scary how many people seem to want this to stay around, though. (Please. NO.)

Use a different email interface for today.  See if the annoying "trick" is gone tomorrow. Yahoo's thunderbird seems to work pretty well.
