It's simple, if I walked up to you and said "Hey, would you like to join Amway?" you'd start thinking soap, getting people under you in a pyramid, etc. But if I told you "Hey, I joined this business club where I get products like KoolAid and Rice Krispies Treats and Famous Amos cookies at wholesale prices and they ship them right to me so I don't have to fight the crowds" you'd be a little more receptive. Big names like Herbalife and Amway and such have changed dramatically from what they used to be. But some people still only see what their mothers and fathers and grandparents knew. So when these companies make major changes for the better, they use a different name to pique your interest. Of course you know Amway sells soap (and no, I don't work for Amway.) Did you know they sell motor oil? Did you know they sell Garmin GPS systems? Did you know they sold air purifiers? They have changed drastically in what they offer. In fact, from what I've heard, they may even sell things like life insurance through Wells Fargo. So why the secrecy? So people don't have preconceived notions about a company that's changed quite a bit.

| 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!!).
