BS - Revisited
The other day when I checked my
email I got another BS email that
claimed - 50,000 people
can't be wrong - is why
you should be interested in this
thinking - what a crock of crap -
well then what happened to the
millions that claimed the Earth was
flat and many people were executed
for saying the world was round.
Were the millions right? Obviously
For example, in 1327 Cecco
d'Ascoli noted as an astronomer,
was for the at the time - Earth
was round theory - and other
controversial results of thought,
which brought him under suspicion
of sorcery. He was driven from
his professorship at Bologna and
burned alive at Florence.
Nor was this all his punishment:
Orcagna, whose terrible frescoes
still exist on the walls of the
Campo Santo at Pisa, immortalized
Cecco by representing him in the
flames of hell.
Needless to say that after
reading this "50,000 people
cannot be wrong" statement I
reached for my mouse and then the
The only reason why I am writing
about this folks is to alert you
to the BS and Rhetoric that
commonly is perpetrated by some
Internet Marketers and others
trying to convince you to buy
something or give something up of
value - in this case cash because
50,000 other people did?
What a lame tactic. Meet Bernie
Madoff, he has an investment for
you that several thousand people
took advantage of - and they
can't be wrong, can they?
Really folks, when you start
seeing tactics and rhetoric like
this - hang on to your wallet and
run for the hills because your
about to loose what's in it from
a BS Marketer or possibly more if
its a Politician!!
There is nothing wrong with a
little hype, many times it comes
from justified excitement, even
over a product or service. But
this kind of tactic crap as
mentioned above, we can all
certainly live without.
As I have said in the past for
many of these types of deals with
tons of hype and rhetoric,
$10,000 sales letter for probably
a 10 cent product.
