FUD, n. -- something bad someone says about something you like.

That's not what it originally meant, but as you can see with Alex here
that's the meaning it has taken on over the years.  Basically, gymsmoke,
the best technique is to ignore anything anybody says when they use the
word "FUD".  It is a literally meaningless term these days.
