I don't agree here.

The Nazgul at this stage were aware of the trechery of Saruman (regardless of which version of the story being referenced). If I were in their shoes I would most assuredly not...

I'm so glad I didn't let news of his participation get my hopes up.

It can be assumed that he objected to the inclusion of all the bordellos.
