That could skew credibility of the article if 4chan (or similar) members did that at release, including some of the quoted responses. 4chan (or similar) is so large though it would be difficult if not impossible to know whether someone is just messing around or the response is true. Might have some of my friends who are members of 4chan do some searching to see if anything was mentioned about doing that.
