It's not a New York Times article...
It clearly says YEW NORK TIMES
Why don't people read the thread and the link provided in the OP?
ATS has issues... and It's not with pulling April fools pranks...
It's the sheer ignorance and gullibility of many of it's members and the inability to actually read the thread

I understand exactly what you are saying and I even agree with you about the gullibility of members here. However, that does not change my opinion at
all. SO and company have violated their own Terms and Conditions. This joke (and it is funny) was placed in breaking news where it remains still, not
in general, skunk works, or HOAX. It is in Breaking News and is being put forth in a manner to intentionally deceive others. Granted, anyone with a
reading level above the 3rd grade who actually takes the time to read the "article" linked in the OP will see its a gag, however it still goes
against the T&C of ATS.
How many of us here go nuts when our own government violates the constitution and goes against the will of the people? So when the government breaks
their own rules we are ready to fight them and each other, but when the ownership of ATS breaks their own rules people star, flag, and give them pats
on the back. I just dont get it.
