I do not know. FUD is an overused acronym and probably is a corollary
to Godwin's law. It also depends on the tone and how it was said.
Email is not a medium to give tone or meaning to statements.. it is a
medium for partisan bickering. This is not an issue that can be solved
in a one paragraph email. It is a problem that will take a multi-line
sets of emails and people reasonably listening to each other, asking
for clarifications, and working towards and accepting an 'imperfect'
middle ground.
