Good news...

Yes, you read that right. Good news. And you'll be surprised. I sure was, pleasantly so.

I'm happy to report that this site is now the #1 search result for "he'd sell a rat's asshole to a blind man for a wedding ring." I cannot think of a better phrase to be tied to the Pyre in google searching.

In other good news, did you see the wonderful disclaimer on Pat O'Bryan's new internet marketing coaching page he just launched yesterday? Really. I am not being sarcastic. I think it's a wonderful disclaimer. And I think the marketing for his program is rather honest (from my limited viewpoint as I've never participated in his coaching program). It doesn't seem outrageous. It seems like he's promising some things that could actually be delivered.

Contrast it with the outrageous promises and no disclaimer on the Awakened Millionaire page, I think Pat is showing signs of doing the right thing.

Maybe he could have a conversation about how doing the right thing doesn't hurt so bad the next time he's sucking Rocky Patel with Mr. Fire. (Yes, I know that sounds horrible. But really, I've got to do something to entertain my "audience of one.")

If I see a prominently placed disclaimer on other sites, say for example, the Hoshun site, I might have to stop pestering them about their business practices. Like maybe you could do a disclaimer saying that Hoshun is for entertainment purposes only, that when you buy the wish dolly picture your results are up to you and that getting whatever you want is up to you, too and that Hoshun isn't going to make it happen, but he might remind you that you've got a plan for making it happen.

Then we'd be getting somewhere.

See, I'm not a "hater," Pat. I have a sense of humor. And when I see people talking about recyclable laxatives and wish dollys sold for $40 a pop, I'm going to take a shot... or 40. Sometimes it's going to be funny. Sometimes it's going to be indignant. Sometimes it's going to be harsh.

But when I see responsible marketing, I can acknowledge that, too.

  1. LOL about good news item #1. And ditto on good news item #2. Disclaimers like that *are* responsible marketing, IMO. As your "audience of one" (or so I assume), I applaud you for taking the time to point out the good as well as the bad and the just plain silly. And I applaud Pat too.

    And hey, if this guy Rocky P. is cool with being sucked by those guys, it's not for me to judge. What people do in the privacy of their own private clubs is not my business.
