    "secret sauce"

    [​IMG]

    Might as well be named "snake oil" because that's all it is. Why are we allowing people to sell this?

    What he said above, furthermore - you can sell pretty much anything, it's the buyers stupidity if they buy something because of it's secret sauce.

    Secret Sauce = three Fiverr gigs. Secret sauce just sounds better than "I am going to blast your website with shite from Fiverr".

    So why are we allowing it?

    Allowing it only makes this community weaker.

    It ranks your site. It makes you money. It feeds your kids. But I'm not going to tell you what it actually is.

    No..

    I am in the lounge bullshitting with my friends and community members. If enough people feel the same as me I will then take the time to suggest it to the forum.

    I tend to not buy anything with "secret sauce". I like people who are straight up with me without any bullshit.

    CosmicSoundz dislikes Veyron, Veyron dislikes CosmicSoundz, now we have to deal with all your drama. How about I send you both on a little vacation?

    I agree with the sentiment against 'secret sauce' but I don't think anything can be done about it. If some action is taken, it'll also have to be applied to anything that qualifies as 'proprietary', 'trade secret' or anything on those lines.

    Edit:

    'Secret Sauce' is just a tastier term for 'proprietary'

    I wonder where that vacation spot is exactly...

    If I start adding Secret Sauce to my art, I don't think people will like that.

    You can sell shit if you package it right, you can also have a hard time giving away gold if you cover it in shit.

    when i see a bst saying they have a secret sauce, i dont buy it.

    you choose what you want to buy, if you decide to believe in the seller, that is your problem.
