I am always pleased to learn something new. Today I learned about the
acronym, FUD. Wikipedia has an article about it:


So now I have a name for the tactic that anti-DU, anti-nuclear, and
anti-dentite ((:-) the last is an attempt at Seinfeld humor) activists
primarily use to promote their agendas.

Maybe you already knew that the tactic had a modern name (FUD) and maybe
you didn't. But we know.
