Your saying you wouldn't bottle it at all or you wouldn't rack from the bottom?

Shooter is saying that if it's fuzzy like mold, and you're pretty certain it's mold, then dump the batch.

Yep!

It's possible you could safely rack it all from underneath, but I leave that call up to you. Personally, I'd be worried about any bit of mold sinking back into the beer and coming along for the ride when I racked. An active fermentation has probably kept all the mold bobbing on the surface, but mold is one of a few things that would likely cause me to dump a batch.
