You misunderstand my response. There is nothing emotional about opposing
fraud and deceit. Your calls for document forgery, product
misrepresentation, consumer fraud, and other trickery is definitely
anti-truth. Trying to trick into accepting your position goes against
everything that freedom, science, civilization, Extropianism and
Transhumanism stand for. These are not the methods of someone who really
believes in Truth.

I have years of security consulting experience with the FBI, DoD, CIA, NRO,
DoJ and the Pentagon. I know what disinformation is. I also know what
truth is. It is not possible to the former to further the latter. They are
mutually exclusive.
