We had a small spike in traffic today here at DLMSY. This was due to referrals from NewsToday.com, to a story we wrote in April: Iran Nukes Holland. European Leaders Warn Against US Overreaction. Apparently an automated news feed on the NewsToday site (the one they call "PBS") took that as true and "broadcast" it. A human must have recognized the goof and removed the link, since there's no trace of it now. Computers can do a lot, but spotting satire isn't their strong point.
