The above post is correct in many ways. Everyday I open my personal and business and message board emails. A total of 6 email accounts. WOW, some days unbelievable! From all over the world, the prince, the kings, the western union managers, the attorneys telling me I have 100 million dollars to be forfeited, and countless other things, almost everyday. Then all the blind solicitation, etc., etc. Years ago it used to cost either stamps, printing and stationary to do all this or labor and phone calls, expenses. Now it is all computer, type a letter and mass email. Sure there are some expenses, but not nearly what it used to entail in fixed costs and labor, etc.
SO we get conditioned, I believe is the proper word for it. And many people carry over that conditioning into all aspects of their life, work and existence. BOOM!
However, on the other hand, I do know the power and the opening up of a coach, a person that has been down the road, someone with something that they earned, sweated to obtain and took years to perfect, etc.
Can there be honest, hard working, experienced players, good or worthwhile teachers-mentors-coaches, etc., on here or other forums or websites offering their services? IMO, sure, why not. Are all of them great, successful, guaranteed to make you all kinds of money? I highly doubt it. But, when money is involved there is always a lot of jealously, over zealously and resentment by the majority of those exposed to the solicitations, no matter if that is in the way of a print ad or a sponsorship or a indirect solicitations/offer on a message board.
And therefore, I see no magical solutions to weeding out immediately who knows what and who knows how to make others money. However, if I did teach someone something and they told someone else, quite possibly that person they told it to, would say I was full of garbage and conned them, for whatever reason.
