What If Tex Were Terminated By Amway Global?

September 30, 2008

Amway Critic and Supporter Tex has a new post up on his site titled, Tex Loses Some Quixtar/Amway Global Upline Support, in which he explains that his IBO City account was recently cancelled by his upline Amway Motivational Organization (AMO), InterNet Services. As David Robison points out, Tex’s IBO City account was a “website replicating template site that provides IBOs with a series of website templates that can be customized with their own business name and “landing” page, so they may send potential IBOs to a website to introduce the recruit not only to Amway Global, but also, to the IBO’s own identity.”

Tex is a study in contrasts, as he is both a supporter and critic of the business. He hates whom he calls the Lying, Cowardly Kingpins (LCK) for running the tool scam yet he finds the tools to be useful and essential for building the business. He also feels that the Amway Global opportunity is a good one but has been sulied by the tool scam. Fixing the tool scam, then, should be the top priority for the corporation. Fix that, and everything would fall in place for future success.

I wonder how Tex’s opinions would change if he were terminated by Amway Global itself for violating rule 2.9 in the Code of Conduct:

2.9. IBO in Good Standing. For the purposes of interpreting and enforcing the Quixtar Rules of Conduct only, the term “good standing,” when used in these Rules, shall refer to an IBO whose conduct does not negatively affect the reputation of Quixtar Inc., its related businesses, or IBOs affiliated with Quixtar and its related entities. This Rule shall not impact anything other than the Rules of conduct, including, but not limited to, Quixtar Business Incentive Programs (QBI).

Tex points to this rule as proof that he is actually on the side of Amway Global. By revealing the tool scam, he wants to show Amway that he’s on their side. Unfortunately, Amway has devised its own way, accreditation, of dealing with kingpins. It remains to be seen whether or not accreditation will curb the excesses of the LCKs, but on paper it is at least a start.

So, my questions for today are:

  • What would happen to Tex were he terminated by the corporation?
  • Would he feel betrayed by Amway Global for siding once again with the LCKs?
  • Would he turn his back on the opportunity and become a full-fledged critic of the business?
  • Would he give up railing against the tool scam and do something else with his life?

    I’m actually a study in the truth.

    It’s the LCK’s who break rule 2.9, as I described in my recent e-mail: https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7395124008407193399&postID=3241222322344919250

    What would happen to Tex were he terminated by the corporation? —- What do you mean? I would be a former IBO. Does something “happen” to former IBO’s?

    Would he feel betrayed by Amway Global for siding once again with the LCKs? —- Not any more than now.

    Would he turn his back on the opportunity and become a full-fledged critic of the business? —- No, and no.

    Would he give up railing against the tool scam and do something else with his life? —- No, and yes.

    Amthrax…

    I have to at least give credit to Tex for not being lulled to sleep like so many other IBOs into believing the company propaganda about the Tool Scam–or the lack of one. The Tool Scam ranks near to the top of the list of reasons to counter the cult, but not the only one as Tex constantly preaches. He indeed has a right to speak his mind. Too bad most IBOs are not listening or are badly duped into following the company line on this issue.

    tex’s message would be more effective if he would be flexible and not diss would be supprters of his cause.

    QIAC,

    You’re lying. I’ve said many times the tool scam isn’t the only problem, just, by far, the largest one.

    jc,

    When I want to have a lying, whore mongerer on my side, I’ll know to call you. Just don’t hold your breath….on second thought….

    jc,

    I’m right, you’re stupid.

    I think Tex lives in a duality of sorts. He denounces those that created the tool system, a system which has supported the Amway business, yet he aligns with the corporation.

    The question the Corporation has to ask is who is putting the most money on the bottomline, the creators of the system or Tex.

    The next question is who to sweep under the rug?

    In my opinion, it may be in Tex’s best intrest to either build a very large business without the use of tools, or leave the business.

    Mike, tex the retard also thinks the tools are great and that the tools actually works. He just wants people to sell them with little or no profit.

    Ain’t gonna happen. People are going to build tape factories and set up large conventions for free. Thus tex the retard comment.

    I seriously doubt that the Corp will terminate Tex. Don’t hold your breath waiting for it to happen.

    mike,

    Your opinion is stupid.

    1. I aligned myself, well before it happened, with what has happened in the UK, Russia, India, etc. That isn’t a “duality” of any sort, it is supporting what is right and not supporting what is wrong. If that is a “duality” to you, so be it. If you think I am “aligned” with Amway, you haven’t read my blog today.

    2. Of course the LCK’s put the most money on the bottomline, or this controversy wouldn’t be one.

    3. There is no rug to sweep anyone under, this entire issue is far too public for that to be possible.

    4. I have said many times I have well over 10,000 tapes and CD’s, hundreds of books, etc., purchased for pennies on the dollar.

    5. Whether I stay or leave Amway has yet to be determined. The first step is to shut down the tool scam, and then decide whether to stay or go.

    jc,

    It’s already happened in Russia, the UK, India, etc. Make up your mind, you said I want tools to be sold for little or no profit, then you said people aren’t going to build tape factories and set up large conventions for free. These are not the same concepts. You’re stupid.

    rdkxyz,

    Why do you think I won’t be terminated?
