That dude looks so fucking weird and wrong, on so many different levels, that I didn't notice what looks like a tumour growing on his bicep. That shit ain't right. I can't understand any who thinks that shit looks attractive.

um.....You know that it is photoshoped clearly? look at colors, the size is just wayy off..lulz

Wow, it's nice to find a site that apparently has people that are so aware of the marketing tactics out there. We need to seriously spread the word. Especially in this economy it bothers me how many people are being scammed out of their money by shady marketers. The "non-lies" but "misleading" advertisements, fake testimonials, blah blah, the list goes on.

I know that's not what this site is ALL about, but I'm glad people are bringing this subject to light! Keep up the good work! I'm definitely going to spread the word about this site.

cool man glad you like it..  call-em-out is definitely one of the most important aspects of this site.. the more people become aware of shady tactics/scammers & the more people unite against it, the better the s&c industry (or any industry for that matter) will become. As much as this subforum attacks the scammers, the "scammed" often need to be blamed.. looking for quick fixes & miracle magic is what puts scammers into business in the first place. We have to educate on both levels.

:F

peace

All we want you to do is give DH a prominent and positive image online. When you see an article discussing DH principles, or a post on a message board, your job will be to represent us in a positive manner and drum up interest

dunno, seems pretty shady.  Hes basically asking for a bunch of bmullys/psychotic trolls to run around forums and spam his product when its discussed.
Relax.

saw this on another site today in reference to the spammer scam ^. made me lol.



   g uyz, you will be happy to know that I have applied to be the official shill for Carb Nite TM on the SS forum.

    http://www.dangerouslyhardcore.com/2...cle-apply-now/

    Application:
    Mark Carpenter
    Male
    ********@gmail.com
    I've done it all

    Mr. Kiefer, I have not tried Carb Nite TM yet but I have been doing something similar for about a month now and it's going pretty O-K. I recently heard some of your podcasts and I was like "I've got to get on these guys nuts STAT".

    You are interested in people who have a lot of spare time, believe me Sir, I have time. I really can't wait to start working for free, to be part of the "inner circle", and to finally belong and feel accepted. I look forward to the semi-private meetings where I can ask you what exactly to put in my coffee, every day.

    I have vast experience in consuming social media and dealing with message boards. I believe the SS board in ripe for Carb Nite TM. It's members are clueless about nutrition and are mostly obese do to being given certain dietary advice that I won't get into here. Given the chance, Sir, I will be pimp Carb Nite TM harder then a 9 year old slumdog, and they will fall all over themselves trying to get on the bandwagon.

    Mr. Kiefer please send me a copy of Carb Nite TM and Carb Backloading TM so I may properly study the products in depth and be able to answer questions regarding them to the marks.

    I really feel in my bones that the whole Kiefer TM/Carb Backloading TM phenom is about to explode. I would also humbly suggest raising the price of the e-book from $89.99 to $189.99, while adding in a bonus chapter about Backloading on vacation. People rarely notice such subtle changes.

    Yours in the proper use of carbs,
    Mark

What will you need to do? It�s easy. All we want you to do is give DH a prominent and positive image online. When you see an article discussing DH principles, or a post on a message board, your job will be to represent us in a positive manner and drum up interest. With articles, you�ll start and coordinate discussions in comment threads�and when you find an article, you�ll log the link in a special Forum area and email it to everyone. You�ll join and participate in various forums, and you�ll share DH content via social media.

There is, however, a surprising—and highly controversial solution: nicotine.
