I haven't read a single "HP promotes witchcraft" article that wasn't full of similar errors. It has to make me wonder if half the people writing diatribes actually read the books.
Right in one, sir or madam. The basic factual errors and misspellings in the plot 'synopsis' I documented sure indicates a second-hand retelling of spoken rumor to a Web Person/typist to me.

"Blast and balderdash! Our petty cash fund is running low - I had to threaten to excommunicate the pizza boy to get him to leave the bread sticks this time! OK, here's what we do: This "Larry Patter" thing is popular now, right? My second cousin's brother's milkman's kid once read one of those books, and I saw him with an OPEN safety pin around his nose the other day. So, that's how we spin it - Larry Patter is Satan returned, the stories tell the kiddies how to turn Mom and Dad into snail darters, blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda. The marks'll eat it up and its cha-ching! time at the bank!
OK, bring in that little wastoid and get him to give us a quick synopsis of the Patter books. I'll pay the bill so we can put up the web page again ... damn it, WHERE'S THAT PHONE NUMBER?"
