A number of my readers told me I should post the message on the Warrior Forum ... so I did - but ...
Being an old man ... about as computer literate as an ol'yella cat ... I simply copied the email and posted it with the ad copy at the end.
When I got Ken's email telling me that my post had been deleted and advising that it was because of the ad copy at the end of the post, I thought he meant I should post it again without the offending ad -- so I did. I simply misunderstood.
By reposting a deleted post, I violated the rules and was justifiably banned for a week -- BUT ...
Below is the content of my original post because I believe it is information Warriors should consider.
"As the pendulum swings ..."
Have you ever wondered why there is a proliferation of "get rich quick" crap on the Internet?
Well, it's nothing new. I've watched the pendulum swing for 50 years.
Here's how it happens ...
Back in the mailorder days, there would be a number of articles about how much money could be made selling "how to make money" information products - and- how easy it was. Then, someone would write a book about "making money with how to make money reports." -- Then another, and another, and another. Then came the "plans & programs" that promised to make the money for you ... all you had to do was pay them to do it for you.
In the beginning, the books were written by real people who were actually doing it and the books explained in great detail how to do it. -- No hype. No B.S. -- Then, the research writers wrote books. Then pure amateurs rehashed the same thing; again, and again ... only repeating what they had read.
Then the readers of those books, of course, created a whole new generation of "how to make money" books, booklets and reports.
In a while, the "opportunity seeker" market was saturated. More and more "how to make money" reports ... most of them crap ... being sold to the same audience; cutting the market into smaller and smaller pieces. Fewer orders for each marketer.
When the "crap" purveyors saw fewer and fewer orders, they moved on to greener pastures - and - the unfortunate beginners never made enough sales to continue in their efforts.
Soon, the pendulum had taken a full swing and the only ones left were the "real" people with the experience to back the information in their books.
But, then again, there would be a spate of articles about how much money could be made selling "how to make money" information products and the whole cyle would start again.
I've seen it happen too many times in mailorder. Now, it is happening on the Internet.
Until the pendulum takes its full swing, expect more and more crappy "how to make money" information products, plans and programs on the Internet.
P.S. -- I will continue to recommend only those "how to" works written by master craftsmen who are worthy and well-qualified to share their knowledge with you.
Hope that doesn't get me banned again.
