You are, it's called /. -- It's about the furthest thing from Fox you can find.

And if you wait a few moments until the global news oligopoly passes the story to all the other rags it owns, you can read the exact same text elsewhere too:

Google, Submission AdSense and NoFollow Letdown 104

John Battelle is reporting on his blog that word has leaked about a possible new API from Google that would allow sites to distribute AdSense earnings to individual members based on submissions or participation. From the article: "To toss a bit of cold water here, however, I've never seen UGC sites as the least bit driven by money. They are driven by pride, the desire to be first, reputation, whuffie. But dollars? That often screws it all up. I guess we'll get to see soon enough..." Relatedly many users are calling the 'nofollow' tag "Google's embarrassing mistake". Justin Mason is just one of many to take a look at the current status of nofollow and what may still be in store for that particular tool.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
