On a Lighter Note

Check out the comments on my I Hooked One! post from March 3rd. I'm hooking more on this post than I did on the original.

I'm enjoying it quite a bit. The blog post is really shaking some people up.

What makes me wonder is why on earth are they constantly looking for blogs like this to atack. A bad comment isn't going to change the fact that:

1. The opinion of the original post will usually still stand, and

2. The one who posted the comment is, more than likely, a total moron.

I've been confronted twice about Quixstar, once back in 2005 and once just yesterday at one of their meetings. After the meeting, I looked up some info on it, found some research sites and th Dateline video, and chuckled at it. Chuckled at the fact that I could have thrown myself into an unescapable pit.

Aside from that, yeah, keep it up. I enjoy these bouts, most definitely.

Amway can just go down the tubes, as far as I'm concerned. I don't want the head of that stupid company as my governor either.

Thanks for stopping by X!
My daughter posted about her Amway research and got tons of nasty comments and emails. She's still getting them, 6 months later!
Why they look for blogs that ridicule their "cult" is beyond me.

Squirl, an Amway Governor is a scary thought! Way worse than nekkid Beverly Hillbillies. ;)

Glad they aren't around here...

I may be doing a collegiate competition speech on Quixtar next year, if I can get it approved by my Forensics coach (ADS, or After Dinner Speaking, because a speech with sarcasm is awesome). If approved, you think I could get the address of where your daughter posted her research? That would prove very beneficial.

Thanks in advance.

X, she didn't post her research. She printed it out, and used the information to deprogram her future husband. She had at least 2 reams worth of printouts!
She's moved 3 times since then, so I doubt if she still has it. You can email her at blueapples85@yahoo.com

quixtarinsideout.com is now the "Mystery Link" on my sidebar. Awesome site, truth, keep up the good work. I was just an embedded journalist - you were in the trenches!

This is fun! I've been trying to find a list of companies associated with Amway - I wasn't sure if Melaleuca was one?!! I want to be informed next time I hear someone rave about stuff...

Euro, Candace says Melaleuca is Amway too. I hadn't heard of that one until she mentioned it.

Dang.
That actually makes sense... There was a lady at our church who "started her own business" and was always very fishy about what it actually was. I went to a "presentation" she gave and it turned out to be Melaleuca. I felt at the time that there was lots of helpful info (which is, as was pointed out in the comment section of the earlier post, potenitally bogus) but it also sounded like a "dangerous chemicals" witch hunt.
She didn't rope me in with the products (mainly because there was a membership you had to buy and on top of that a monthly minimum order... yeah, right!). Thank God!

Euro, that's how they make their money; from the memberships and minimum orders. Later, when you can't keep up your minimum order, they hit you with the training seminars(for a fee, of course), motivational tapes, and books.

Whoa! IS Melaleuca Amway-affiliated?!

SME, go back to the I Hooked One post and click on Candace's link. That link pretty well explains it.

I know this is a bit late, but thanks SME. I appreciate the comments and the link.
