Never upset a web guru or anyone with a huge database or this is what happens...

I'm a follower of a lovely guy called Tom Antion. He was doing web stuff before most of us even had a website.He now has a HUGE following. You do NOT upset someone with a huge following or this is what happens....."I am formally and publicly withdrawing all endorsement of James Malinchak and James Malinchak International. I actually did this nearly two years ago when I sent James a letter outlining the fact that I was appalled at his business practices that are in NO WAY in alignment with mine.To those of you diehard fans I feel sorry for you. Some things you learn starting today and in the coming weeks I feel will be very disappointing to you.To those of you who have put your stellar reputations on the line promoting James Malinchak . . . don't feel bad. I did too for many years and now I totally regret it. I'm suspecting you will feel the same way if you don't already.To get you started on your path to discovery I suggest you start following an extremely tough consumer advocate called "The Salty Droid". WARNING: This guy pulls no punches and the language can be "R" rated.Some examples of his writing are below:"My research into scamming scammer scam face James Malinchak has lasted more than a year.""James Malinchak is a scammer. A dark :: horrible :: lying ::scheming :: life destroying :: money stealing :: back stabbing ::a**hole scammer.""Pretending to be charitable can be profitable :: as long as your a sociopath* willing do whatever it takes on the backend."*For your convenience I am including links to some plain language profiles of a "sociopath" which the Salty Droid refers to.http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.htmlhttp://www.youmeworks.com/sociopaths.html"James Malinchak is taking vulnerable folks of massive five figure sums. We're talking fat stacks :: like in the $50,000 a pop type range. In return for these wads :: customers ...can expect ... well ... nothing it seems like. The Droid has taken multiple crazy reports from sympathetic five figure victims ::nothing but shadows and dodges in return for their money.No value :: no service :: no refunds :: no nothing."The comment below refers to the many references to James Malinchak that are tied to the terms "scam" and "ripoff""There are also hundreds of websites devoted exclusively to the exciting subject of how totally not a scammer James Malinchak isn't"". . . this kind of spam based reputation management is unethical and/or illegal. Like :: just as a for instance :: the FTC . . . ""James Malinchak wants to :: and will :: take your f***ing money.But he hasn't thought it out much past that."You can read and follow the entire thread at:http://saltydroid.info/secret-millionaire-secrets-revealed/I know some of you who James Malinchak has treated nicely will be very upset with this email and with what the consumer advocate above has to say. Please just reserve your ire and judgement until you see all the evidence.Much more to come.Tom Antion"So there you have it - beware - ann Sign up to our fortnightly issue of Powertools; a regular supply of business ideas; business tips and business tools for growing your business and receive a copy of 'What Next?' 29 Successful Entrepreneurs Sharing Their Predictions for 2011 and 2012.
