Thanks, but I am, and already was, well aware of the uses and effects of propaganda. I have flagged such use here on at least one occasion in the past too. I did not, and would not, have posted such an article (the one about the 5-parent family) as part of a debate about the merits and risks of multi-way relationships. It was for illustration and general interest only, interest because such a family relationship is so rare that most people would never have encountered anything of the kind before. And I fully expected everyone here to take this as my intention too.
