I also find it amusing that you've added this post to several lists that
didn't get my original post, and to which I'm not subscribed. This seems to be
a common tactic,
grandstanding in ways that don't allow rebuttal. Reminds me of "The Great
and Powerful Oz."
I simply replied to all on your post -- the fact that your post was sent to
lists you are not subscribed to is hardly my fault. You can avoid that by
writing your own spam rather than using other people's posts as a springboard.
In fact, as anyone can see, you have done it again. Your post to which I
reply now was addressed to the 1811 list, so my reply would go to that list but
for the fact that it is my list and I know you aren't on it so I removed
As far as the legitimacy of the PPL organization, let me just suggest that
anyone who wants to look into it Google Pre-paid Legal Scam or Pre-paid Legal
For you, Rick Gurlley, and anyone else struggling with the pyramid concept,
here is where a law firm explains it:

You're correct about one thing - you're not an expert on pyramid schemes,
and I doubt that your evaluation is going to be useful in their defense, whether
or not Rick Gurley concurs.
Still, I do not really care. You have been pimping this product at every
opportunity for quite some time now and I haven't seen fit to say anything. If
investigators want to buy it, they should be able to research it - or they
don't need to be investigators.
What frosts me is the fact that you are the opportunistic promoter that
would use Ma-Bell's problem as a launching point to push your product as if you
could have saved her if you had sold her -- BULLSHIT.
Do you know what pre-existing means. Read your own contracts. It is not
when did the suit get filed, it is when did the aggrieved act allegedly take
place. Ma-Bell Michelle was using that name and web site long before you
talked to her so even if she had bought into this, they would not have helped her
defend the suit.
In other words, you created a connection that didn't exist as a way to pimp
pre-paid legal and make a buck - using my post to launch it.
THAT is what I objected to.
Cheer up, with Rick Gurley on your side, how wrong could you be?
