Yeah, reader submitted stories are never biased. I don't sell Amway or Herbalife, but as I posted elsewhere, if someone came straight out and told you that's who they were, you'd say "no thank you" before even seeing they have new products. Amway sells air purifiers, motor oil, cookies and other snack foods. That's not soap, but if I said the name Amway, that's what you would think if you didn't do your research. As far as all this bickering back and forth, stop being children. This is a website for grown up adults looking for a business to start. If you have experience with the company, then give your opinion. If you don't, then keep your opinion to yourself. I used to be in Amway but I left because I was 18 years old, didn't have business credibility and couldn't afford the products for myself. I'm now 37, which means I'm older, wiser, and giving serious thought to Herbalife. Since the 90's, demand for healthy alternatives has increased. That is why Walmart and GNC and places like them are expanding their supplemental vitamin sections all the time. Research the business, think clearly when you go over your research, don't pay attention to the hype where they try to get you excited, go over the FACTS and make a truly informed decision. If your decision is to "go for it" then really GO FOR IT. Nobody gets rich without drive, determination and desire. (Except for celebrities who sponge off the success of their parents who had drive, determination and desire.)

| 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.

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!!).
