ZDNet posts CRAP Demon Story

Oversells itself in dodgy headline shock horror

from the increasingly accident-prone ZD Net UK, has the hallmarks of a classic sub/copy-editing error. It looks like the journalist's tagline was imported wholesale into the space reserved for the headline in ZD Net UK's content management system. The floating "Kris" -- and the real suggested headline ("When it rains it pours for Demon") below -- also support this inference. These things happen. But then the piece was published! And archived! These things should not happen. ®

Notes for editors

ZDNet changed the headline of this story to: "Demon Internet services affected by office flood." An hour after we published this article.
