Thus condoms, and the not so shockingly discovery that the semen from people who are UD can still be infectious. 

Please correct me if I am wrong, thank you :)

Yep, you're right but now the scientists are starting to know why and how. Until there is greater clarity over these questions, then scientists won't have a complete picture of HIV. So while the article may be pointing to the blindingly obvious, the research is actually starting to colour in some of the picture that was a blank.

only in theory. recent studies demonstrated that people on treatment and with undetectable virus levels are practically unable to transmit the infection. if there's no enough virus present in semen transmission cannot occur. the partner study demonstrated that very well.
sign the petition launched by the aids policy project addressed to the nih aimed to increase the money needed to find the cure:

we can make a difference and we need to fight. please support them! it doesn't cost you anything. they need it now more than ever!
