Falun Gong creeps me out; so do their enemies

I was doing a vanity search of myself on Google. My profile appears on a whole bunch of social network and websites. One entry looks suspicious though. I appear on what looks kind of like a news website, for some critical comment I have made against Falun Gong sometime ago. Crap, poor judgment of me to offend a religious group. Told you to keep your big mouth shut on the net. Now they are going to want my head.

facts.org.cn? What the heck?

This is a piece with me in it. They have done a brief search on my background, lifted a picture from my website, and paraphrased my criticism, though not very coherently. Who is www.facts.org.cn? My first impression says it is yet another Falun Gong media. They have whole bunch of low quality, pseudo journalistic websites. They were mad at me for saying unflattering things about them. It takes a while for me to see this website is perhaps a critic of them instead. Without my knowledge, they pickup a comment I have made sometime ago and portray it as a voice against Falun Gong. The website is ambivalent and low quality though. I am not pleased that I appear there.

TL;DR My original comment: Fei Tian Academy is an art school setup up by Falun Gong backers. I don't have a problem with that. I just urge them to be upfront with their religious affiliation while they are aggressively recruiting children. The comment can still be found on socketsite.com.
