Lower your blood pressure immediately! This site "dialectizes" whatever text you cut and paste into it. Using the Elmer Fudd dialect, Peter de Jager's words are transformed thusly:
De bad news, and thewe is bad news, is that in waking up the giant, we awso scawed the wits out of the genewaw popuwation, uh-hah-hah-hah. Genewaw pewception has twansfowmed wowst-case scenawios based upon wack of effowt into inevitabwe, unavoidabwe conseqwences. Oh, dat scwewy wabbit! Any good news which does awise is cast aside as mewewy a positive spin, uh-hah-hah-hah. Bad news is accepted at face vawue. But good news, no mattew what suppowting evidence is offewed, is discounted, ignowed and discawded.

According to the Computing Dictionary, FUD means "Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt." Is that how it is being used lately on the Forum? Sorry for the newbie acronym confusion ;-)
