They have not.
The piece remains prominently displayed on the Internet. Although it is placed into the context of actual historical events, it is a hoax, from beginning to end. Anyone familiar with its context should have been able to spot it. Nobody has.
It has my name on it, and it is in a place where my material is commonly found. I even told it, word for word, beginning to end, in a talk at a major conference. Nobody spotted it then either; or if they did, they didn't say anything to me. This kind of blew my mind a little. It was even videotaped and streamed to the Internet.
I will give an exquisitely appropriate gift to the first person who emails me and correctly identifies the hoax piece. But to discourage random guessing, you must provide a citation showing that the piece is a hoax. (You may have to prove a negative here, so anything that thoroughly discusses the context but makes no mention of my hoax will do.)
If nobody emails me with the correct solution before January 1, 2014, I will at that time reveal the hoax piece.
(To save you time, this is NOT one of the joke videos I've made or anything that presents itself as a joke or a hoax, notably the Death Valley videos made with Richard Saunders, nor was it the SkepticBlog post promoting John Rael's obvious hoax Bigfoot film.)
Hint #1: The setting of the hoax was outside of the United States.
