Conspiracy Exposed - BOFHs Get BOFH'ed
News just in: The workings of cartel comprising nearly all the major IT related companies has been exposed. Its aim was to claw back the many millions of hours spent reading The Register instead of working.
Allegedly; large sums of money and other inducements such as alcohol and bacon was offered and speedily accepted by the Registers management. A spokesman for one of the cartels members claimed "they bit our hands off".
An unknown source told us that a young team of inexperienced website designers was given a brief to upset as many of the core readership as possible with a new plausible but awful website makeover.
Sources also say that senior Register management are drinking their favourite solvents and patting themselves on the back at their choice of design team. "They are naturals at this bullocks" said one.
Meanwhile hundreds of commentards, mostly waving flaming pitchforks and many with murderous intent, are gathering vociferously at the Register Forum. Collaborators are quickly voted down without mercy.
This could get ugly" an industry insider told us. "Of all the groups of people a technical website should not upset is a group of intelligent know-it-alls that contains many apprentice and fully fledged BOFHs. Just imagine how they will react when they work out that they have been BOFHed by journalists?".
