    Came across one of my old campaigns and I lol'd. I took this campaign pretty far by creating a fake criminal complaint which was viewable on a survey/petition site which then redirected to the survey offer. The campaign actually converted ok but was no better than just doing more traditional ones, so I abandoned it.

    I've said this numerous times, you have to think outside-the-box and experiment with completely crazy stuff sometimes. Although this campaign didn't convert that great, you never know what goldmine may be around the corner...just need to keep digging.

    Most people who fill-out surveys or free submit offers aren't the brightest bunch, so my demo was pretty spot on, lol. Obviously FB doesn't have any authority to criminally charge anyone, but I figured that offered more shock value than just a civil suit. The fake criminal complaint was made to turn more people into believers of this new policy.

    Considering that you can't even spell to "a lot" I would say yes, he is way ahead of you. We don't need to realize anything, stop infecting the web with this useless crap and create something people value instead.
