That's where the song by the Boomtown Rats comes from.

You have that on the site, don't you?

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. That's the whole point behind "copyright trap"?

Come on, Snopes! These folks are far too busy trying to get a message out. They don't have time for things like "creating their own material" or "ethics".

Oops. I clicked New Posts and didn't check where this one came from. :o . I plead the aftereffects of 30 minutes on the phone with Brahm's Lullaby playing as the hold music. (no, I'm not kidding)

Sorry, snopes.

Wait, how is the site offending? Isn't the site just summarizing what happened?

Yes, but with exactly the same text as the snopes article. Paragraph 5 down to the first sentence of the last paragraph on A Cat Named Easter's link to the main site.
