FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.
Spew = to vomit, utter, ejaculate(verbally).
(FUD is often created by companies, marketing, media, or fan boys to bolster some view, product, belief, law, party line etc. or discredit another without any _tangible_ basis other than possibilities or fractional percentages)
FUDspew (aka FUD Spew)= Uttering, repeating, or creating FUD.
Often times, shallow gossips are unknowingly responsible for repeating FUDspew and it gaining traction without verifying the facts. News or information that is propagated with little or no value but perpetuating FUD, untruths, lies, or POSSIBLE problems (not actual realistic ones)
FUD (and therefore FUDspew) is part of the problem with society being afraid of everything. FUD has sold in the past...but is losing traction as more and more people become aware that the vast majority of negative news is FUD simply for lack of better input.
Did you read the article on "##########"???
I might not buy/read/do/vote for "########" because of everything being said about it!! It sounds like it's awfully risky.
"In reality, while all those things MIGHT happen, you might also get hit by a tractor trailer also. If you believe their FUD, then they've effectively won. Do some real research and find out the facts."
"FUDspew kills more companies/products/reputations than all legitimate complaints combied."
