I agree with this. Something went wrong.

Asserting that the problems are FUD does not help anyone resolve this.

I'm sorry you didn't actually read what I wrote. I did not refer to the 
problems as FUD.  I called one specific statement by LD FUD and hogwash. The 
statement was an attempt to use an emotional response to an unlikely or 
improbable action by the IAB sometime in the future to gain an outcome (e.g. 
don't let this dangerous precedent stand) that matched his personal belief.

What would you call it if not FUD?  Never mind.  Substitute "an emotional 
appeal" for FUD and "This is an absurd extrapolation of what the IAB may do in 
the far future" for hogwash and see if you like the text better.
