For someone so good with maths, Slarti, you've missed the mark here. RimJob has made makes over a million dollars on his hate site every three years.

My understanding is that FR is a pretty lucrative scam. Even if his claims are inflated, he's probably made hundreds of thousands over the years.

For someone so good with lawyering, :sterngard: , you've missed the mark here. I asserted my belief that FR is a lucrative scam, something that would be confirmed if the assertion you made without evidence is true, and then suggested that, if, as would be unsurprising, Rimjob's revenue numbers are exaggerated, his take was likely into six figures (with the first figure not being "1"). In the context of my conditional, I object to your assertion which assumes facts that are not in evidence and very unlikely to be true if, in fact, Rimjob's Freepathon income is not as large as he says it is.

I'm sure most people don't notice how throughly I qualify just about* everything I say, but it's probably* a bad idea to assume that you've caught me in a logical error unless you can prove** it.

* see what I mean. :towel:

** "Prove" being used in the mathematical sense of "shown to be unquestionably true".

Personally, I would not be surprised if RimJob is using every "trick" he can think of to increase the bottom line he posts on his website. It's certainly not like his accounting practices are in any way transparent.

Nah. It wouldn't be worth it to never feel clean again.
