Sorry Jim, what you are seeing is severely clouded. They are liars.
It is an explicit part of their policy and the documentation for
their tactics is available for those that wish to read it. One of
the most famous quotes from these groups is "the life of a rat is 
equal to the life of a child." These people are frightening.
