Just a quick post, though an important one with lessons for us all! πŸ˜‰

assholes should own up!
Be a man! πŸ™‚

It seems some people can never make that step to admitting they are being an asshole and they can’t say that word “sorry”, more so to the right person on the right bloody blog. Β You know, if you are gonna do anything then make it the right thing and not half assed.

If you are a “big” person, in his words, don’t blame social media and it’s users for your crappy lame product being slammed, it got slammed cos it’s crap, sod all to do with you being the “big” man there to be shot down.

Making threats is just lame!

Amazing that people can be so dumb and not see the damage they do to their own reputation!

Takes a bigger person to admit they are being an asshole!

Better yet, don’t be an asshole!

Don’t be an asshole, then there is no problem

    Oh, there is no point arguing with Brian. He’s not open to hearing it. You [and everyone else who feels the same way] are just beating a dead horse. If the product [I say ‘if’ because I haven’t checked it out myself] is a piece of crap, then people will figure it out and his rep will get shot all to hell. Personally, after reading his closed-minded comments I have little interest in purchasing anything of his. Not that it matters much to him, but if enough people feel like I do, then it will matter one day.

      He is, he commented on the “link love” post and was I thought on the right path, then he screwed up by blaming everyone else, what an idiot… Allyn nailed it lol.

      While I can see your point if I can help ONE person keep their money in their pocket, it’s worth it. πŸ˜‰

      The whole thing was avoidable, he chose to screw up.

      Now I am off to read YOUR blog! πŸ˜›

    Life is too short to argue. Everyone needs to move on. Get over it. I come here to read about making money online, you have some great blogs on the subject. As a new reader, blogs like this will not get me to stay. I feel like I’m stepping in a large pile of… Not a comfortable feeling.

    Is it really worth it?

      Hi Richard,

      Not arguing with anyone, pointing out some important lessons though. πŸ˜‰

      If you can’t learn from that mess you could just as easy fall into the same mess yourself.

      It’s not a case of “getting over it”, there is nothing to get over, for me at least.

      You mean “posts”.. as blog is the whole of this site.. πŸ˜‰

      The lessons learnt make it worth it yes, though it’s not something I will be writing anymore about, just that others have talked about it elsewhere, that is, they spoke of the post I linked to in this post and interestingly some new lessons were learnt.

      For me, I just say, if a mess is created, best to just deal with it, not make it worse.

      I am not saying I don’t want you here, or don’t appreciate your view, just that what I learnt from it I shared as it IS to do with making money online. πŸ˜€

      Thanks for your honesty there, say’s alot. πŸ˜‰

        Thanks Rob. It just seems to me like there is a lot of negativity going on lately in the community. Everyone is making a stink and getting their feathers ruffled. It’s not helping anyone. It’s not inspiring or motivating. In fact, it’s rather depressing.

        Stooping down to their level only makes you equal. Focus on the positive. Keep your head up. I have nothing against you or Brian. But think about your blog and what you really want to accomplish here. Think about your readers. We don’t want to be thrown in the middle of this. It’s not cool.

        • March 31, 2010 at 5:26 pm

          Yeah there has been some negativity recently but it’s also about people ripping people off, and no-one likes to see that kind of crap, yet if we are in this game, it effects us too.

          It helps people who don’t know to keep their money in their pockets, it shows how easy people can blow their own reputation down the drain too.

          I tried to be positive about it, even went as far as getting Brian commenting here about it yet he still missed the whole point, but hey ho…

          Never mind eh. πŸ˜‰

          I always consider my readers, and the last thing I want to see id them getting ripped off… and I have saved a few of them paying out too, so it made it worthwhile.

          I been at this shit for about 7 or 8 years, seen all this crap a few times, won’t change the fact I will help the readers see it from a different perspective than they already do, if I get ONE person thinking about it, great. πŸ˜€

          Had I stooped to their level it would have been far worse than what you see here, believe me mate.

          Thanks for that comment Richard, food for thought isn’t it?

    I love negativity! πŸ˜‰
    Actually, it just shows that not all the “big gunners” know how to operate a real business or work with real people in the first place.
    many of them are like spoiled athletes who make it big and end up going off the deep end in drugs or crime.
    These big gun bloggers never really “earned” anything in the real world, so in the virtual world, they become arrogant assholes.

      Love negativity? Surely not? πŸ˜‰

      That spoilt athlete analogy is a good one and fits it well.

      They are like fake it till you make it types at worse, once made it they forget completely what it meant to get there in the first place.

      Thanks for the comment Al, spot on as usual! πŸ˜€

    I agree that one should avoid being an “asshole,” as you put it. I do think with the amount we interact with others online, mistakes are bound to happen, and one really needs to learn to back down and apologize.

    We should be getting thicker skins online, but I’ll be the first to admit I need to be a lot less whinier and sensitive, and I’m not sure when that’ll change.

    Hi Rob Sellen, looks like karma is hitting Brian Clark overtime, all these bloggers are now talking about him and exposing him for the misogynist coward he is. Funny how he won’t say a peep to the droid. LOL. Have a good weekend, bro.

    • November 4, 2010 at 4:06 pm


      Thanks for your comment but I must ask you something, if ok?

      Do you see the irony in this? πŸ˜†

      Not having a go, just something for you (and others) to think about…

      I don’t like the “name” you used, salty don’t mind that shit on his, I do, more than that you are being a bit hypocritical, no?

      Calling someone a coward while hiding behind anon crap like that is ironic to say the least.

      While I understand people may wish to stay anon for a reason, it must be a good reason, else it’s just cowardice on the anon’s part.

      If we are to really make changes and stop these assholes, we should man up, not hide behind crap and bash with no sense. (Again, Not having a go at you personally)

      By all means… call someone out on their shit but do it as a person who stands behind it.

      That will make the difference, people relate to real people, not stupid monikers like that one you posted here, you could be ANYBODY. By that you are nobody.

      Something to think about.

      You will notice there are plenty of us who have commented on salty’s blog under our real names, wtf do we need to hide for?
      We don’t, that’s fear, fear of nothing .

      We are not scared to man up, we see no reason to be. πŸ˜‰

      Now, to answer your comment, no Brain won’t slam salty or anyone on that blog because people like him pick certain battles cos he IS a coward and a bully, that’s what they do πŸ˜‰

        Hi there.

        I followed you over from Lis’ blog and have to say you just earned some serious respect from me. Here I was thinking you were a would-be bully, but really, you’re the opposite. While you and I most certainly do not share the same opinion regarding Brian, you take a high road with your dissent. I can appreciate that.

        Anyway, just thought I’d let you know I stopped by. Have a nice day.

        (PS: You are not going to stop Brian. Only Brian will stop Brian. There are too many of us who love what he does, which makes stopping a ludicrous idea. Would you stop doing what you do because someone you didn’t know said you should? Me neither.)

        • November 4, 2010 at 8:19 pm

          Hi Jess,

          I certainly aren’t anything like a bully, I know what being bullied is like. I am not stupid. πŸ˜‰

          I am a tell it as I see it person though. πŸ˜€

          Saying that, sorry for the tough love on Lis’s blog but I stand by it if it means being true to myself, and to you.

          I hate to see people with blinkers on and I felt by the way you addressed yourself in that comment you indeed had blinkers on. πŸ˜‰

          As Bertrand Russell said… “Most people would rather die thank think, in fact many do”

          I am not taking a high road so to speak, just being honest and straight. How I am, myself. πŸ™‚

          I certainly know and agree non of us will “change Brain” but people CAN be straight with people and if people like Brian are willing to “blinker” people, they should accept people will be vocal, rightly so. πŸ˜‰

          I don’t give a toss who likes him or whatnot, nothing to do with me, as that’s a choice others make. It doesn’t even matter to me because it’s not my money they are wasting, only their own…

          What does matter is people like him make bullying comments, taking the bullying attitude and thinking people should just “like it or lump it”…

          You choose to like it, I choose as many others do to stand up and say, “Hang on, you cheeky bastard bully” … and stand by it.

          Would I stop what I am doing because someone I didn’t know said I should?

          Not sure what that refers to? Where did I say someone should stop doing whatever?

          But for me the answer to that is I wouldn’t be doing crap… in the first place! I wouldn’t treat others like he did, does.

          Thanks for the comment. πŸ™‚
