[linux-elitists] Help request -- terminology for Caldera FUD tactics

I'm trying to find a good word/phrase to describe what Caldera/SCO and
its press organs are doing currently regarding GNU/Linux and allegations
of copyright infringement.

First it was "favor currying publicity stunts" 

    http://twiki.iwethey.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SCOvsIBMResources#Favor_currying_Publicity_Stunts

Now it's argument by repetition of "What if SCO is right?".  My favorite
response (not sure if it was Slashdot, LinuxToday, LWN, or Newsforge)
was "What if SCO is right about _what_?", given that the story has
changed, and been vague, from day one.

So:  something to capture this whole tarring the GNU/Linux community by
SCO in a topic?

Peace.
