What does that have to do with what I said? I think the manner in which you made your point has too high a chance of being misinterpreted to be acceptable here, which is probably why it was being downvoted.

I get your point, yet somebody misinterpreting a joke should have no impact on the company...

Unless the company actually had inadequate reserves to meet customer withdrawals, thus leaving the solvency of the company at risk of a good old-fashioned fractional reserve style bank-run...

Oh, I could care less about the company, but I do care about the integrity of HN as a whole. That doesn't mean I don't like the occasional joke on here either, but since that story seemed a bit light on details and people were looking for information, posting satire that looks very much like valid information can be unintentionally misleading.
