Duh, it's fear mongering pure and simple to make folks afraid to even try it, because there's no proof, which you insist 'any one' should have (back into that thought control box, little doggies--never think for yourself, only believe what we, your all knowing 'superiors, tell you).
It's a tactic straight out of you guy's hand book. People are brain washed to accept the word of any one who sounds like an authority and obey. Even against their better judgement.
And not dense--just bribed. Which can look very much alike.
