    Just checked a few articles on EzineArticles and found out that their dates of submission were all :


    Article Submitted On: December 31, 1969

    Could this be a bug?

    From the who.is of Ezinearticles.com, I got this:

    Creation Date: 1999-11-19

    Can someone explain pls.

    May be a bug. It is surprising to note that ezine of a great calibre has a bug like that.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    Unix and some databases store their dates as an "epoch date" which is the number of seconds since Jan 1, 1970.

    It's just a bug in their system.
