The u6 numbers have value, but you just have to understand what rate you're considering.

The u6 numbers are always higher. That doesn't make them false. What is false is the idea that the the trend the u6 numbers show us radically diverges from the trend in the u3 numbers. The trends are moving pretty much in sync.
