When you say "it is officially affiliated with the GNU project" that
you are misrepresenting GNU project, and making claims that you are
not authorized to make.

Making those misrepresentation is damaging the intentions of the GNU

It is tort of deceit. And indeed you are deceiving people with your
fraudulent misrepresentations. 


True facts:

- your website is NOT officially affiliated to GNU

- your website is not unofficially affiliated to GNU

- owners of the website are conducting fraudulent misrepresentations
  of GNU project

P.S. I am also maintaining domain with "GNU" inside, and we are
publishing on each page that "We are not endorsed by GNU or Free
Software Foundation" -- we just promote GNU operating system and bring
people to it. Website is NOT affiliated to GNU.
