Does the existence of this article make it less likely that the hoax can be perpetrated?Rathfelder (talk) 23:32, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Semantics[edit]

If something is true it is not a hoax. This is a meme or trend, or prank if malicious, but it's not a hoax. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.225.85.233 (talk) 06:59, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

It is a hoax in that it is meant to fool people. Mezigue (talk) 08:07, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
