Not lying; just misunderstanding his documentation.
-c means to generate context diffs, which are acceptable
-u means to generate unified diffs, which are preferred
The default is to generate "normal" diffs, which are useless as patches.

Most versions of diff, including the one in question, default to using 3 
lines of context in both unified and context modes.  However, they still 
default to normal mode; you must use the appropriate switch to select a 
different mode.
