          Do my job? What job? Nothing is being sold here.

          If you want to watch the 2 videos, watch them.

          If you don't want to watch them that's fine by me too.

          Each to their own.

        Better than the post you deleted.

        Bob, you're new here and apparently haven't taken the time to familiarize yourself with the sub forum. Normally, people don't watch original post 13-minute videos without a strong incentive.

        So stop being so thin-skinned and accept constructive criticism, okay?

      No, no, no...

      The guy you're thinking about has a big agency job now. He doesn't have time for us little folk here on this wee sub-forum.

    Thanks for posting these, Bob.

    I do all kinds of copywriting jobs, I have turned down only a couple of opportunities because I felt they were unnecessarily exploitive and I was being asked to "fool people" and pretty much lie about the product/service.

    But I try as much as possible to be a "conscious copywriter", in other words, I tend to support those causes I feel exist for the better good, and I will occasionally write for free to help worthy campaigns that need my particular skill and support.

    OK, Bob. I watched the videos. Why is there a crisis of conscience? Is a company asking you to lie? Are you being asked to write copy for an evil company?

    I think I may be missing something here.
