Aye.
Never, never call them on it in a public forum. Privately, if you must, but
even then I'd hesitate. I've been faced with this situation before and I
opted to simply cut ties with them and decline offers of assistance - at
that point I gave them the reason. They offered to pull the false
information at that point. I simply said "You made your choice, I've made
mine."
