They've updated whatever it said now and added an apology - anyone care to enlighten those of use not quick enough to look, what it said??

The point is that you can get to any Indie article with whatever URL you choose, as long as the article number at the end is not changed.

This one was a made up URL by someone making that point, not something the newspaper themselves ever published (at least according to their update).
