I think it is time to calm down, because there are some misunderstandings concerning the Rollei Redbird film and the links to flickr.

I've done a search for the postings in the german forums. These misunderstandings, especially of the named photographer on flickr, are based on wrong translations from German to English.

Nobody have written that these photos were made with the Rollei Redbird film. Neither the people from Rollei-Film nor other photographers.
In the discussions in German forums the question occured, what Redscale technology is and how it looks like. Because lots of "classical photographers" know anything about this technique.
I've looked for the discussions in the mentioned forums as well and I can confirm your findings. In the original thread Mr Junghans give full quotation of the source, and it is there clearly said that the pictures on flickr are not made with the Rollei Redbird.
Therefore it is absolutely wrong to say the people at Rollei-Film are liars.

For those who are interested, here are pictures with Rollei Redbird:
