Someone recently left a comment on this blog about how Amway defenders would often threaten to sue Amway critics. It is true and I was threatened and harassed at one time by zealous Amway defenders because they claimed that I was damaging their business or that a prospect read my blog and decided not to join. I had to LOL at that. Amway zealots would never try to sue a critic for the following reasons:
The discovery process would likely get them laughed out of court or their case would be so weak that the courts would toss the case. I am only sharing my experiences on this blog and my informed opinions. I have a right to free speech as do others who have an opinion about Amway, good or bad. Also, some of the facts I refer to com from Amway.com so what is there to dispute? It’s a fact that most IBOs do little or nothing which leads to my next point.
How would someone prove damages when most IBOs do nothing? How could zero potential business add up to damages? Also, most prospects don’t sign up but it’s for various reasons and not because of some blog about Amway? Many people know others who had bad experiences and word of mouth advertising is pretty powerful. How about stats from Amway that show a tiny fraction of 1% reach any levels that might be profitable?
How many IBIs have come and gone from this very blog shooting off their mouths about going diamond only to be never heard from again shortly after? Yet here is Joecool continuing to post articles so Amway information seekers can gain a perspective from people who participated in Amway, achieved some degree of success and were let down by upline assurances of success. I have nothing to gain and receive no compensation for running this blog. I do it as a public service.
