I will correct a few wrongs as well. He claims I own Tripso.com which is not true. I write for them and I also am a volunteer administrator on the forums. He says that my petition stated that YTB was "illegal" and that is not true either. You can read it and see for yourself. Finally, he went on about how I edited the comments on the petition. Again, not true. I did delete some names that were obviously false (Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck) and I also deleted "signatures" that did not relate to the cause. You see, what Earl Allen does not get, is that a petition asks for support of an issue. The wording was clear. So it made no sense for someone to sign a document in support of a position and then utilize the comments to essentially negate their signature. If you want to argue, do it on a forum or in a blog. Here is an example of a comment that was deleted:
Hi John, Why are you such a hateful man? I guess you just can't accept change. Industries are changing on a daily basis. YTB gives a chance for people in this country to provide a better life for their familys. Online travel was here before YTB. Brick and mortar Travel Agencies have been shrinking for many years. The world is constantly evolving, Accept it John. I think the bottom line is that you're just mad at the world, and taking it out on MLM, and YTB. I have news for you John, MLM continues to grow at a rate of 150,000 people per day globally, and this will continue to increase. I'm also involved in another MLM that has had over 500,000 people join globally in just 4 months. We YTB RTAs, and all the MLMers in this great big world of ours really do love you John! P.S. Just remember, YOU put yourself in the spotlight. Now we are going to spread the word to the global MLM community about your hateful actions my friend. You will be able to read about yourself, and your hateful ways on the internet. PeaceSo, with that type of reaction from the MLM crowd, I do not think I was out of line. There actually is another petition that I did not sign supporting the MLM model.
But enough of my commentary, please enjoy the fourth part of our series.
