Other then John's post these threads are useless cynical rubbish. Give us something of value about postcard profits. I don't want no indepth bs about IP Addresses etc. Instead has anyone else moved forward with this?
Seriously, it is so hard to dissect the garbage from the truth and all your tainted remarks about scam in a can etc. are just ignorant and coming from someone(s) who have been burned a few times. Wipe yourself off, it will be ok. Please just write something based on actual knowledge. It saves us all a lot of time.
John, I'd like to know how things have been progressing. I did very well with direct mail marketing but decided I needed (instead) to start marketing online. I have since discovered that everyone is fighting to compete online where offline is once again wide open. Postcards are effective and I want to learn from success.
ps. It would be great if Luke Janten weighed in on this Forum. I personally wanted to ask him what a reasonable starting budget would be.

| 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!!).
