You pretty much covered it, thanks.

I'm not saying the claims are not true, but I think most of us probably lack the information to make a judgment on it. That the rabid group wanting hockey eviscerated from Arizona (the thread in the BoH section was sad to read) is harping on those talking points probably makes me even a bit more skeptical than I normally would be.
