First Amendment protects Internet rants

It will cost two Palm Beach County dentists about $20,000 to learn what hard-core bloggers have long known: You can say just about anything you want on the Internet.

In a decision that was lost temporarily in the winds of Hurricane Wilma, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Edward Fine ordered Richard Kaplan of West Palm Beach and Leonard Tolley of Lantana to pay for trying to silence a North Palm Beach woman who started a Web site to blast their dental work.

Fine ruled that the two dentists or their attorneys should have known that Elaine Prentice was well within her constitutional rights to slam them on her Web site. Because they filed a suit to try to stop her from exercising her right to free speech, Fine ordered the two to pay her attorneys' fees.

Why not these businesses fix their practices first?

There were some guys telling you can make millions in mall the other day. That was so reliable! Then they show a video of lifestyle. And tells how bad my boss is. Of course the proof of their profitability was 'none of my business'.

There is a lot of wasted webspace by 'positive' blogs like those of IBOAI kingpins. What do you think about them?

Btw thanks for all the racist comments. I'm compiling a post with all those. Such nuggets make you, IBOs, look real good. You're making it easy for me.

What do you think about Pakistani IBOs? My upline is / was.

Hey Imran, how bout you make sure they're IBO's - hell it could be You or one of your buddies for all we know. The guy admittedly said he didn't even know what "quickstar" was, or what the hoopla was all about?

If you go posting those bigoted comments as "views/statements of the typical IBO", then you're lower than pond scum, and would lose ALL credibility!

You and Eric are a joke!

You're a joke.

And you will not succeed at Amway.

You are the definition of a plugged in Amtard.

Yea, so did rocket - he just opened his mouth and more Sh!t came out!

Take care rocket - I was gonna just tear you a new one, but I won't bother. Cause you're nothing. You're insignificant. You're a litle person with a little mind.

I usually wish everyone success, but honestly... you're just a piece of sh!t. You really are. You're absolutely f#@$ing worthless, other than to convert oxygen into C02 for plants and other scum.

So good luck to you rocket, I hope you make it out of college without pissing off the wrong guy and getting your assed kicked. I hope if you ever get laid off, you find something that will help pay for your trailer.

And I hope your kids grow up to be rich so that someone can take care of you when you're 72 and finally realize that maybe you shouldn't have made fun of all those IBOs, cause your Pension just isn't what you Thought it would be.

Yea, thats about it...

Tony...are you simply...stupid or something?

Who is your upline?

Hey Tony, didn't you say that you were gonna quit posting like a month ago 'cause your "business" was supposedly taking off?

So why does one find Tony's Verbal Vomit (tm) on every blog on the net that happens to mention Quixtar? What's the matter, still making a big fat zero every month?

You really need to find a better pastime than commenting on every "Quixtar Chatter" link. Or else stop talking about how you're gonna stop posting.

Put up or shut up, Tony. Won't be the first (or tenth) time you've failed to do so.

At 11/23/2005 04:36:00 PM, Anonymous Tony said...

Hey Buckfutter, actually No, i didn't say i was gonna stop posting like a month ago. I recently said I wasn't gonna waste as much time posting, I also said I was done posting on a certain blog, and when I tied up some loose ends HERE, that you probably wouldn't see me much Here Either!

As luck would have it, today being the day before Thanksgiving, work is pretty slow, but since I have a JOB and get paid by the hour, I can't just go home since my work is done, I have to sit at my desk until the "bell rings".

So like I said i'm tying up the loose ends.

See you critbots later.

"I also said I was done posting on a certain blog"

Oh, right, 'cause you got BANNED from it! And as soon as you got un-banned you started posting there AGAIN! Wow, Tony, caught yet in another lie.

"when I tied up some loose ends HERE that you probably wouldn't see me much Here Either!"

Well,did you tie 'em up yet? And are you still gonna be spewing your verbal diarrhea on every blog that mentions Quixtar?

By the way, how's the "business"? Making real money yet?

Been out of school for a while now, dude. I was actually one of the guys that would have kicked your ass. I don't have much tolerance for mouthy little puppies who yap away endlessly, yet never really accomplish anything. When you hit diamond, let me know. Until then, you can just shut it, since you have NOTHING to back up your little claims.

Just because Amway is your last hope at accomplishing anything meaningful in life, it doesn't make it so for everyone else.

I can see why you got no other options though, based on your work attitude, to wit:

"I can't just go home since my work is done, I have to sit at my desk until the "bell rings"."

Yeah, that attitude at work will get you far. You should keep in mind that where you work now is helping pay for your little rinky dink business (habit) you are into.

Just remember to shut the grill off on your way out, winner.

How come driving for hours, sitting in coliseum all day, and all that stuff is better than a job? Besides, Job pays!

Make little or no money and teach others to do the same.

Isn't this a pretty accurate summary of what happens to most IBO's, including our friend Tony?

Sure, some people do make money but it's at the expense of the majority who do not.

And please don't compare quixtar to college because colleges don't recruit people by saying they will be wealthy with residual income and more time to spend with family.

Ha! If I could make $50,000+ working a grill, I just might. That might be cool owning my own restaurant.

I take my job very serious and I do a damn good job! Don't try to imply otherwise! I told you, it was the day before Thanksgiving, the office was practically empty, my work for the week was done, but I couldn't just leave, so I took a little time to post. What are YOU doing!

Hey Imran, in a JOB, I don't choose my hours, I don't choose anything. Why is drving for hours and sitting in a collesium all day better than a job? HELLO? We do that like 4 times a year! i'd rather do that than sit in a cube for 45 hours a week!
I'd rather be a Diamond drving miles, and doing seminars when I want to, and have the freedom to take a month off if I felt like it than make $100,000 but be married to my job! But hey, to each his own!

And Joe, why do you INSIST on saying the on saying the only people who make money at this do it at the expense of the majority who don't. HAve you forgotten retail customers. Have you forgotten the lady I told you all about who made $65,000 from corporate Gift Albums acounts in 1 year! She had NO downline and made $65,000 in her 1st year!!

And once again, stiop assuming that every IBO was like YOU, buying 7 CDs a week and paying thousands of dollars to FLY to functions! Most 4000PVers are MAKING decent money! My sponsor has a 4000pv maker over $1200/month, not bad for a little side business! My upline ruby, made $14,000 last month! NO tool money! This is a guy I talk to every week! My mentor's mentor. He's been to my house, shown plans for me, made calls for me, and he made $14,000 last month!! No tools, just Quixtar money, and he's barely a ruby!

I'll be making money this month too about $300, and with $112 in expenses you do the math.

So am I part of that majority losing money or not? Still don't get the concept of working your way up huh Joe? Don't understand investing in yourslef to geta return down the road... just like college. And YES I WILL compare it to college.

You say "colleges don't recruit people by saying they will be wealthy with residual income and more time to spend with family."

Well no sh!t Sherlock - that's because they can't! Wanna know how colleges recruit. By telling you to work hard and get good grades, so you can get a good job!
But what they don't tell you is that there's no guarantee you'll get a job in your field, there's no guarantee you'll even Get a job, and no guarantee that you'll get to Keep it! But you guys expect some kinda guarantee from this.

Alan always talks about how he was Valedictorian of his HS and graduated Cum Laude in college, but STILL got laid off after 1 year of his engineering career!

Some good his college degree did him there, I thought he was siupposed to be OK. He did what the system taught. He believed what a college degree was supposed to provide, how he was Recruited by them: go to school, work hard, get good grades so you can get fired 1 year later!

So don't b!tch to me about us saying you can be wealthy with residaul income... because you CAN! Alan, Doug, Joe, Larry, etc, ARE wealthy with Residual income! Just because YOU didn't do it, doesn't mean that it Can't be done - it HAS been done! and IS being done!

Tony, I say that the few make money off of the majority who don't because it's true. You claim you're working your way up. Fine. But working your way up is still losing money and the fact that more that half of the IBO's drop out each year indicates that they's chasing a pipedream.

And if those handful of diamonds you mentioned are living off residual income, why are there some diamonds who quit and left the business? Seems like the diamonds are just as busy as people with jobs, they just work later hours instead of the day shift.

You may achieve residual income for a while, but as IBO's quit, they have to be replaced or you fall out of qualification. Just like how you hit 1000 PV but aren't doing it every month.

Well, I'm over it this month! And here's a newsflash, when you build it right, and ethically with the Right People, they don't quit. My sponsors #'s keep growing. Sure some people have quit, but I see our meeting and our nightowl getting bigger. See when you find the right people they don't quit.

Joe Markiewicz doesn't have to worry about replacing his group cause he found leaders who are building their business right. Joe has 10 Platinums and above - 3 personal Diamond legs! That's residual income whether some new guy quits or not.

You keep talking about diamonds working just as hard, just doing it 2nd shift. Wrong, they don't work just as hard! They don't work as many hours. Sure Joe or Doug, might still show the plan in the evening, but its on Their schedule! Most of the time Doug and Alan are out on the Lake! So what if Doug does a board plan at night or flys to Michigan to do a seminar - he has the freedom to do it when he Wants, or not to do it at all!

If a Diamond wants to go to Europe for 6 weeks - HE CAN! Most people with jobs don't get to do that! People with Jobs don't get all-expense paid trips to Orlando, then Hawaii, and then Peter Island, all within 3 months! I'll take that "2nd shift job" of being a Diamond, over any other "normal" job Anyday!!
