    This post is horrible.

    It seems like this website over the past 2-3 weeks went from a really cool place to post ‘insider’ info to leak the truth about Team leaders to a cheezy blog. Cartoons of GI Joe which was originally posted in 2008 and animated videos is making this site come across as a ‘negative’ site of people who quit and are trying ‘too hard’ to fight Team vs a safe zone for people to tell the truth. Now it seems like every post is people rambling on and on about NOTHING. The REAL reason why this site started to explode with readers and comments about Team over the past few months was because it wasn’t an attack site… I think you need to change your focus Amthrax or I’ll never come back, and belive me… I’ve only mentioned 1% of what I really know. And I know more about Team than all your readers combined. Cheers, and thanks for the great opportunity to post comments.

    What’s horrible about it? Seems like poignant humor to me. Do you feel unsafe now as a result or are you just concerned for the wellbeing of others?

    @Crystal – You know, it would help if you had a consistent identity when you post your comments. I’ve seen posts coming from your IP address with the names Crystal, Barry Broke, UnKnown, Truth Seeker, M & C in NB Canada and Amy S. Which is the real you, I don’t know. You tell us?

    I’m not going to police the discussions on this blog that much unless they get out of hand. If you have something that you would like me to post, send it my way via email. Not every post can be the hard-hitting expose you want.

    I have a question and have some thoughts from where you are coming from. You say you want this to be a whistle-blower site and I believe that’s exactly what it has become. I hope you understand for some of us this is very freeing to be able to express and have some humor with it. Just like normal people do in everyday life. You say you know more than every reader on here, and also that we have been exposing the team for months, then, Why haven’t you shared all that you know?

    I didn’t realize you had so many handles but I only remember of your post that you said your source told you someone was coming on here as Rykel, I appreciate that but I don’t understand why you are holding back?

    Share your story with us if you can.

    Hot dang, Amthrax;

    If you don’t change your focus, Crystal’s never coming back.

    Whatever shall we do?

    Wherever shall we go?

    Frankly, Chrstal, we don’t give a damn!

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    I agree, the threat is totally uncalled for. Threats are not going to be recieved here well. My opinion would be to start your own blog for free and call it a Whistle Blowing Manifesto and spill your guts!

    Hi there people, I have been out in town Showing the Plan! So many victories! It is the same across USA to Singapore – everybody is hungry with a dream. Hungry for a LIFE changing opportunity. Maybe Crystal misses me! šŸ™‚

    Did you bring your cold, hard evidence?
    We can see your still in la la land.
    Your missed about as much as a migrain headache:)

  14. April 1, 2011 12:01 pm

    I enjoy when you get on here Rykel. With every bit of garbage that you keep spewing out of your mouth it just proves that this bolg (an much more) is needed to attempt to help people see the truth about this cult. If you were not on here telling us what your upline was thinking the motivation may not be as urgent. Thanks.

    Proof of your ‘victories,’ if you please. In the amwy/quixtar/team/wwdb world, just showing up to show the plan (even a no-show) is defined as a victory.

    Funny how in pro-ball, almost-baskets don’t count as victories. Almost showing up for work doesn’t get youa paycheck. Almost showing up at the altar doesn’t get you married.

    We will need to see filled-out registrations, copies of checks from those ‘victories’ made out to you, and your daily planner filled to capacity with STP appts. How about your 2010 Schedule C.

    This is so typical of how they avoid the hard questions. It is called Team Militant Mind-Games/Control Training~do not answer any question that you would have to tell the truth, ask a question with a question, instead of answering, use your best stop-thinking techniques, or plain just act like your high rather than tell the truth. Rykel has been asked numerous, too many to count direct questions in so many posts and slithers in and out avoids them like he’s never been asked. Then has the audacity to ask others for their cold-hard evidence. And yet acts like he’s Orrin (in his pajama’s) bogus distracted bs, spokes person and is so informed on all our experiences, which is absolutely ridiculous because he doesn’t even know us. I know for a fact he is not part of our team, unless he is lying about his name, and that couldn’t be because he says he is level headed & honest..right? I have never in the history of well over a decade ever seen a Rykel from Singapore on a team stage but yet he says he is in profit-sharing, which you would have least have to be a turbo 25 to qualify before at least turbo 12 on system and you would at some point have gotten recognized. Believe me if Orrin had someone from Singapore building Orrin’s business, he would have been bragging to high heavens, never a mention. But he says he got signed up with both the product & system busy-ness and is paid by both and was bound to their P&P. But was too chicken to even mention the names of the companys and says that is the TRUTH LOL. Well Rykel tell us something we don’t know, everyone does that. Rykel, you are not the only one who has spoke to Orrin in his pj’s, would you like me to tell you what color they are? That is just Bs, I can’t believe you would even attempt that as if that has anything to do with a true friendship, what a joke! That only makes you look extremely niave or stupid. Still waiting for all the answers to ALL the questions with your cold-hard evidence, so we have something to really talk about!
    Bring it!

    rykel says-
    “So many victories”……

    Focusing on the prize are ya rykel? He’s thinkin’….CHA CHING, CHA CHING! You don’t give a damn about those people. The only thing you care about is, taking their credit card number at the end of that “plan”.

    The inspirational bullshit you’re feeding them is 100% rehearsed and planned out. Watching the tears they shed all because of some “leader” coming into their home and selling them a dream on all lies and deception is absolutely disgusting.

    The honest truth behind M.V. alone is enough for one to vomit.

    That’s what you showed them was the truth, correct?

    Do you suppose they are still using those same ol deceptive recruiting techniques, that are as old as dirt?
    They definitely haven’t changed their contacting script or their plan.

    Most definitely. Most people can’t even keep up with all the “changes” being done to what they supposedly call their own “biz”.

    What a sad deal they have to offer.

    The more complex and confusing the better, so much that no one can really figure out what they are really trying to do!
    I agree it is sad. It would even tick off Mother Teresa, the Pope, Ghandi and all the rest of the saints. Especially, the Almighty!

    I just started to read this blog a few weeks ago, and I am trying to catch up with all the articles and comments.

    Although I asked Rykel myself hard facts about his successes (and as expected he did not give me an answer,) it seems he is just playing with all of the readers on this blog.

    If Rykel is still convinced of the potential of this MLM business after reading all the negative information on the Internet, maybe Rykel has to learn the hard way. The most wise thing to do, is to ignore him, because it is just a waste of time. Do not let him be a subject of discussion anymore, because he most probably thrives on this attention, not on his “successful” life and/or business.

    You can lead the horse to the water, you cannot make it drink….

  26. April 3, 2011 12:58 pm

    Or is the expression I made in the last sentence, one you have been indoctrinated with in the group? I suppose in the group the leaders would say that they could make the horse drink, ignoring the existence of the individual own mind, in this case the mind of the horse.

    Oh Yes~the quote is used plenty!

    I believe you are right about Rykel, (something does not add up there for sure) Some of already know Orrin reads this blog & others.
    First off it is a big No-No for anyone building the business to ever read the ‘negitive/bath room wall,’ internet. Anyone who has built knows this and you really don’t have time when you are a real builder, unless they are stragetically planning their attack to silence the critic and you are following orders to do this. Doubt & Rejection are the 2 killers of the business, they try and prevent that however or whatever it takes. It is like the (Holy Grail to the Cash-Flow). Orrin Woodward has already sued 1 critic.
