Why is this archived? Do we not want to give The Onion hits?

I can understand wanting to archive some pages (like Reddit or Buzzfeed) but I think linking the archive thing has gone a little nuts here.

It's the non-participation argument/movment, but it's misplaced here I think.

Most every other news source you can link is owned by a massive parent company. People hate corporations, but they still fund them for some reason. The non-participation idea is that the internet can keep the MSM out by only funding sources that meet their values. In other words, it's a dollar vote system, and people are starting to care who they vote for again.

The Onion however, is privately owned and does a lot of good. They deserve our page-views, in my opinion anyway.

Yeah, as soon as I saw that it was archived, I immediately went to the actual page. I like the Onion, they deserve my page view.

It's almost like it's some SJW false-flag troll, like that by running the link through an archive site, some people might not realize it's The Onion and might come in frothing at the mouth like it's a real article. At least, that's the only reason that follows any kind of sense or logic that I can come up with as to why this wasn't linked to directly. That and "The Onion" isn't actually /v/news and why should THAT stop the poster from getting upvoats?

Why is posting Onion articles allowed in /v/news? Funny article, but not even close to news.

At first, I thought I was back on the "Not The Onion" subreddit; this definitely suits the spirit of that.

Wait you mean 20 articles a day about how Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are really taking on the big banks isn't news? Next you'll be saying Sanders isn't going to sweep the election!

Sources confirmed a separate donation has also been made to provide a safe space and counseling services for straight white men at the college who won’t shut the fuck up about how they’re the real victims on campus these days.

Haha this was the best part

Are Onion articles really allowed in news? Is this a mistake in posting it here, or has shitposting here really at this level?

I'm wondering if the sidebar needs an additional rule 0: Submissions must be news.

Probably. This is being upvoated like crazy, probably from front pagers not realizing this is the news category.

Its starting to look like a karmawhoring problem over here.

The onion isn't news, it's satire. Real news articles wouldn't be so explicit.
