You flat out stated your reason for slander. You said "I don't think he made that money". All John has to do is prove he made that money.
Then prove it. I also called him a scam artist.

The contest results page showing I won $25K, plus the $25 in my bank account should do it.

The great thing about slander is he can be right on 9 out of 10 claims, but I win one of them, I win the entire case.

He called me a scammer. That's slander right there. He would need to prove in court that I'm a scammer. He can't even do that on RS. Good luck in court! LOL

I never sued a hater before. Might be a fun experiment.

The photo presents the suggestions the "currency" is currency. Manic!'s observation that it is "currency" is astute and creates fair questions.

The CBC Documentary presents poor production qualities. Meme45 has demonstrated commendable due diligence by contacting CBC directly to confirm its authenticity given those qualities.

John, you are choosing to not only engage Manic! and Meme45, but to encourage them to question you. You even encourage your viewers to respond similarly to those like Manic! and Meme45. To then fault Manic! and Meme45 is unfair, and analagous to blaming a lion you taunted for attacking.

Rather than threatening Manic! and Meme45 with lawsuits to essentially end the discussion, the mature approach would be to simply walk away.

In my humble opinion, this thread has run its course and it should be shut down. There has been nothing but petty bickering for pages.

Go ahead try to sue me. I contacted the company you claimed responsible for conducting the documentary they claimed they knew nothing about it. I came here and posted it. It's not my fault they didn't remember. I assumed CBC wouldn't email out wrong information. For the record the only reason I contacted them was because I couldn't find anything on their site.

Like I said go ahead sue me, I stand behind my earlier statements, I believe you are scamming people, I believe the way you make your money is unethical, I believe you mis-represent your product, and I believe you are a liar.

Oh and I have contacted Linda Steele (the on your side girl), I hope she can do a segment on your ethical approach to business.

I do not feel like doing the fact checking necessary to write a cohesive argument here. But I know what you are running is just a complex MLM and w/e I write you only take the small portion you feel like responding too. So this is pointless.

Again so more people see the message, DO NOT GIVE JOHN CHOW A PENNY, YOU WILL LOSE MONEY. ITS NOT WORTH IT.

You know what? You are absolutely right! I had my fun and I think it's time to end it.

Manic, meme405. You two have been great. The next time I'm up in Vancouver, let's go for drinks. I'll buy. I know you two are not like this in real life (at least I hope not), and I'm sure if you get to know me, you'll see that I'm not really a bad guy either.

Piece out!

Yes, this thread is making me money, but it's not enough to justify my time. I've been doing it because it was fun. From a financial standpoint, I can send out an email blast, which takes a few min, and pull in 50X what I would make off this thread.

But if the haters wish to keep this thread going, that's up to them. I got my message out, so I won't be posting to it anymore.

Ya know dude, you have put a lot of effort into this and I can tell you, you are not going to get what you want.

I may think this whole thing is kinda bullshitty...a little scamy....and a whole lot of fishy....but, it doesn't matter and truthfully, I don't care that much. This shit doesn't effect me. If this John guy has made millions, cool. It has no relevance in my life....and it should have any relevance in yours.

I have been involved in my fair share of threads that spin down into fightclub-esque banter. I get it...It ain't fucking worth it. Just (metaphorically) walk away.

TTZ reached out to me, and I can respect. Should have never escalated to a personal standpoint, so I apologize for that.

TTZ has stated that if Linda Steele would like to do a segment he is up for it, so if that opportunity arises I will pass on her information.

I still do feel that if it takes this much effort to explain what you do for a living and how you make money that something is wrong, and I do not want anyone to think that this post constitutes me thinking I am wrong. I still do not believe anyone should give their money to John Chow, or anyone else for that matter, without doing research for themselves. Information is power. Also keep in mind that if it seems too good to be true it probably is.

I am no longer entering this thread, me and TTZ have both walked away.

The issue isn't that the money is real or not, it's that the person said he was claiming it was real when it wasn't (that claim was never made) and that he was claiming to have won the money when he didn't (he did win the money). On top of all that, he made this huge defamatory picture meant to be taken out of context.

Basically Manic was willing to submit himself to a loss in court in order to win an internet argument that he was never going to win.

First of all, nobody claimed there could be a suit against meme 45.

Secondly it didn't "supposedly" air on CBC, it did air on CBC. People in this very thread were there when it was filmed, and saw themselves on CBC. He emailed some random person at CBC that for some reason didn't know it aired. In return, john posted a link to the video on CBC's website.

My only post in this thread will simply be that if this were any other thread I feel like it would have been locked and closed and moved off to adminland a long time ago. It appears that the main bitchfit is over and I don't see anything other than further discord to be gained by keeping this thread open.

he has a picture with fake money, he said or didnt say that he won that money (manic has a link to a page which says he did but ttz then claims its not his webpage) my point stands good luck trying to sue over such circumstances

Why?

No rules have been broken....people may not agree with opinions stated by either side, but issuing bans and points for having those opinions would be fucking pathetic.

Think go it as one big debate although the personal attacks weren't necessary.

And...maybe just maybe some poor jackass does an extensive search on the MTTB and finds this thread and decides against joining! We would have saved some poor soul a whole lot of misery.

Anyways...the original post by me presented some questions and they have been answered. Thanks to all.

Spoiler!


No, there was no confusion. Your post was obviously half about Manic! and half about meme405. You said that nobody had claimed there could be a suit and I posted where (regardless of the potentially humorous intent) TTZ said that he could and it would be an easy case to win. Now it's possible that the lighthearted hilarious world of defamation lawsuits simply eludes me but I tend to think it more likely that in the hundreds of posts in this thread you just missed that post and upon seeing my Bad Poker Face you pulled a classic SkinnyPupp. While you literally could not be more wrong, you still decided that you needed to fail my post and insist that I must have been confused. I anxiously await part two of the classic SP where you'll add that all of this was meant in jest and I shouldn't have taken it seriously.

All that said, I respect the hell out of you for all the pot stirring you've done here to keep this thread going and drive traffic to John's site and RS (I assume that this clusterfuck of a thread has caused a measurable increase in unique visitors?) You're doing a heck of a job, I mean, I said I was only going to post in this thread once.
