Update: Slashdot Acquisition Rumors False
Fake News written by on Wednesday, August 19, 1998
Last week Humorix reported that sources speculated about a possible Microsoft acquisition of Slashdot. Our sources were wrong. Microsoft has no intention of acquiring Slashdot or other related sites.
In related news, Humorix editor James Baughn spent the last weekend attending a Microsoft "re-education" camp. "I love Big Brother Bill," are the only words that can be coaxed out of him. Unconfirmed rumors indicate that James may have been an involuntary beta tester for Microsoft's new ActiveLobotomyTM 98 product, to be released in 2001.
