But as you can imagine it has to do with something currently running
that has to do "something" with me and my brand.
I have seen people doing that in the past. That's OK.
It's good to have people mimic what you do.
But I am thinking...
When someone goes beyond the "acceptable borders"
- both legally and ethically speaking with emphasis to ethics.
And what one should do when seeing one walking across
"Shoot" him down? (metaphorically speaking of course)
"Leaving him to his destiny" (since karma pays back - always)
"Call the lawyers?" (nah... or ...?)
As said my considerations have to do with the ethic part.
I was wondering what makes someone to be called a "man"
according to the Old School's marketing ethics....
The term of "man" here can be applied to women too as
the one that....
It's that "that" that I have not concluded yet....
Is it his tendency to be sincere?
Is it his habit to be a gentleman?
Is it the vision one carries and being straight with it?
Is it not saying lies to people?
Is it "not doing everything for money?"
Is it to have a good memory and give credit to those that worth it?
Is it to NOT CROSS BORDERS??
Or... is it useless and time wasting indeed to even think about ethics
in the New World - in the New Online Word of Internet Marketing?
Are we free to do anything we want in the name of the dollar?
Copy ideas perhaps?
Ideas do not bear a copyright...
Even Gurus say "get something it works and make it better."
I can accept even that...
But I do not feel convenient if/when says that "Eureka!"
was spelt for first time by his own lips...
...because I KNOW that Archimedes said it first...
...thus making history.
I do not feel proud of dealing with Internet Marketing either when
I see ironed wealthy Gurus to "discover" (or should I say "rediscover")
the "revolutionary ways to do things online" when a fellow marketer
(actually one of the best affiliates of that ironed Guru) had first
introduced that revolution to people... and especially when the
"man" in promotion seems to be born today.
Because even 1 day of additional life would make him not a "Man."
Because "Men" have a memory indeed.
Men respect people and colleagues.
Men apply ethics in business.
Men do not cheat.
Men do not lie.
I have the desire to delete everything I have written so far...
I am not sure what's the purpose of this thread anyway...
I think I am talking to me.
Or to few - very few - "MEN" I met here back in 1997.
Those can "understand."
And that's what I need.
In all cases the commercialization of Internet Marketing will burry
this thread to the 1234th page soon anyway...
However we are humans.
And mistakes are made by humans.
And this thread may be characterized as a mistake.
A Turbo Mistake.
Either a mistake or not, I just wanted to publicly declare that
I have NO association with ANYONE that believes he rediscovered
the wheel and also baptized his rediscovery with anything similar
to me and to my works.
And of course, I know that bad publicity is publicity so the
"man" will smile when reading these lines.
I'd advice him not.
That would not be a masculine smile.
Because "men" prefer to die instead of being dishonored.
p.s. I have no intention to follow up here.
Mods can delete the thread if you feel it offers nothing to Warriors.
However I have seen worst threads surviving.
