Isn't the hoax notable if it got in The Register?

It is a reliable source isn't it?

Even with Orlowski and Metz writing there?

Then there should be a "Jarno Smeets hoax" article, no?

Yes, as we all know, The Register is an important part of the mainstream media.

And Snopes is probably a reliable source too.
