    Little surprises me. Anyone that brags about what they know or how much they make has no credibility with me. Real millionaires and real gurus don't brag.

    lol...Don't sweat it. Frank has taken everything he has ever done in the past from concepts shared by his own guru mastermind group. The only difference is that now it is happening to him on his only original concept and he doesn't like it.

    Just steer clear of the drama and friction he is causing about it.

    This just further proves that karma is a bitch and he is now getting a little of it back.

    WAAAAH! It must be a conspiracy!

    If that was my site I wouldn't be posting the URL a week late..

    Lets not upset the Kern fanboys.. they tend to get paranoid.

    Nah, he's fine to do business with...he's just typical guru. PRobably making all the fuss due to getting more attention to his site. He loves to study and work marketing from every angle, why not use old hollywood publicity tactics.

    They still say " Even bad press is still good press, as long as it keeps you infront of the people " ...however , I think Tiger Woods and Jesse James would disagree...HA!

    Uh, it wouldn't matter, even if he was. He gave a link to a valid source of information, regardless of if it's his, his friends, or his mothers.

    Not everything is an inside job.

    Thank christ for whois.. now all conspiracy nuts can go apeshit checking all URLs posted on BHW..

    That is, until they find one with private domain registration.. then it's time to break out the tin foil hats again

    [​IMG]

    Anyway here's the "mysterious stranger" (something else Kern ripped off via Mark Twain)..

    Registrant Name: Jarret Minkler
    Registrant Address1: 346 Crosby Ave
    Registrant City: Kenmore
    Registrant State/Province: New York
    Registrant Postal Code: 14217
    Registrant Country: United States
    Registrant Country Code: US

    So there you have it, now the conspiracy nuts know exactly who is writing nasty things about their messiah.. go get 'em.. go stand round at Ground Zero waving banners saying "List Control Was An Inside Job"

    Lol, in the Karma List Building Video, he said they paid a programming team 12 gs to get the software done.

    If this story is true, I would tend to believe that their coder ripped them off.

    Either way stealing is naughty. Passing it off as your own is naughtier.

    That's why I'm urging everyone to stay out of the download section of BHW..

    ..so it gives me a chance to grab all that stuff, rehash it through article spinners and sell it to DP idiots.

    Look like Frank is a marketing geniuos or a so none-eve person that relies on all of what his "Tech elancers" do.

    Outsourcing is great, I am not a programmer or and in-depth Tech-Guy, but there must be some kind of boundaries of contracting special services like software development that has to be addressed very carefully.

    Did anybody read his "disclaimer" about this particluar software?

    lol the article... heres the word from the inside(or so i heard through the grapevine)

    Dammit.
    Actually, 10,000 DAMMITS!
    On Thursday, we discovered that the outside development team who built Good Karma List Machine might have used some source code from another (unrelated) application ...without authorization.

    (Thanks, insanely expensive development team!)

    And we also found out that some users are still having problems with it.
    So we've done the only logical thing we know to do in this situation: SPEND MORE MONEY!

    We've hired another firm to build a new version, from scratch, with more features. (As in integration with more Autoresponder companies, WSIWYG page creator, cool templates, and so forth.) and it should be ready in about a week.

    We're also making it where you don't have to install scripts on your server ...we'll be hosting them for you. All you gotta do is install the opt in pages and stuff.
    Sorry for the hassles (wiping egg off face...).


    -------
    ok well to me it sounds lke he got popped ripping off software, and now hes going to fuck over his clients by forcing them to host their email list on his server. glad i can code my own shit.

    if your following the course, and you have a site with cp@nel then you probably have some kind of list manager software built in.

    for me, he is a king of bullshit guru. what this guy knows is nothing more than how to positioning yourself (you learn it from his campaigns, not his course).

    if you guys have been doing marketing for awhile, then you will know from where he rehashed the information that he sold to you for ALMOST 2k.

    and you know what.. you can get it with only $200! :eek:
