And I learn from them. Including AIWA & ETR.
>> For me, that's the bottom line.
To be blunt, I doubt you're not an AWAI troll. Ford does assign employees to canvas the net for unflattering material, and I'm sure this site has been a thorn in his side for years. It pops up whenever AWAI is googled. Katy Yeakle, Ford's longtime top lackey, even posted here herself a few years ago.
So you're either also a Ford lackey, or you're not a professional copywriter. Those are the two choices. No professional copywriter with experience in the real world of business could read Ford's drivel and not recognize it for what it is -- trivial nonsense, half-truths and self-serving lies.
Ford has never written a control for a legitimate product. I'll say that again just for emphasis: Ford has never written a control -- a sales letter or sales blurb -- for a legitimate product. All his work has been done for his own companies, none of which have ever been legitimate. After the government closed down American Media Group and issued a cease and desist order against Ford, he went to work for Bill Bonner at Agora, and wrote deceptive copy for him, promoting bogus financial products, as usual. Then he came back to Florida and set up AWAI. He's never sold a single hair dryer, mattress, automobile, umbrella or tube of toothpaste. He's never worked for a real company as an employee, contract copywriter or consultant.
There's a certain mentality that respects guys like Ford. The worship of money and self which oleaginously oozes out of his prose finds fellow travelers all too easily. But no honest or ethical person can long be exposed to Ford's scams without recognizing him for who and what he is -- a fraud.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
