NYT accidentally publishes Ghislaine Maxwell obituary ahead of schedule

OK Karl, it is satire.

The BabylonBee.com is satire.

This is the second time you've publicly commented on a satire article as though it is not satire.

It is a good lesson for me here - some people are not able to distinguish satire in the written form, and also fail, repeatedly, to actually read original articles (with dozens of BabylonBee.com articles posted, evidently Karl (but the individual is not the issue here) has not actually clicked on even one, or if he did, he  still  failed to recognise that this site is a satire site.

That is actually counter productive for all of us, and in a very real way dangerous, since then it appears that a lot of falsehoods (which are simply satire) are being spread and read as factual, rather than the dry satirycal commentary on certain of the problems in our broader Western community today.

And that, is not good.

I take my duty of care to us all, seriously.

So Karl, I hope you are now under no illusion about the many links I have posted to the BabylonBee.com.

As an evidently necessary precaution, from now on I shall either pre- or post-fix such emails with "[SATIRE]" or something similar, in an attempt to avoid the real damage that may arise when folks are for whatever reasons not able to identify satire as satire.

Karl, I hope there is a positive (or "constructive") lesson here for you, perhaps in relation to "believing everything your superiors say to you" - in this case, what you read as "true" was actually just "shit posting" with the intention to point out how stupid some parts of our shared reality are.  Take care and I hope that you will no longer be mislead by what I mistakenly thought was "obvious to see, must be" satire.

We are in precarious times, and, for example, Juan's no nonsense straight talk may well be a more functional (for everybody) approach.  We certainly do not need exaggerated falsehoods to be amplified, far from it!

Take care everybody, and let's look out for one another, these are challenging times...

(In case it's useful, the satire might highlight that her life may be at risk - she's in the same jail Epstein was "suicided" in.)
