You idiot.  Putting the word "official" in front of something doesn't
mean it can't be FUD.  Especially when it is written by people such as
yourself.  Have you not paid attention to anything happening in
politics around the world during your lifetime?
And yes, actually, the dash after FUD was where I was going to link to
a definition of FUD to show I really meant to use that term.  It
doesn't appear that you believe anything that isn't on your own effbot
site, however.
