    Threads and Mods Disappearing

    Today I watched a thread disappear before my very eyes without warning or explanation.
    And for the first time ever since I joined this forum there is not one moderator online or admin staff.

    What's going on?

    I assume that your desire to know the facts about this company are sincere.

    If so, please call me at (703) 251-0479...I'll put you in touch with the founders to get the answers from the horse's mouth so to speak.

    Barry :cool:

    PS My other replies and offers to you and scambuster were mysteriously deleted and my FireBallProfits username was blocked. If this occurs again, I will advise 1 Step System for possible legal action.

    PS Were you able to read any of my posts to you last night? Did you receive my no risk offer and my personal guarantee? Do you accept my challenge?

    Nice of you to post the Alexa graph.

    Here is why the graph looks the way it does.

    The business was unofficially privately launched in Feb. 2006.

    The business was officially launched March 20, 2006.

    On March 29, 2006 lead capture pages were made available to each member at no extra charge.

    Following the method all professional marketers use, leaders taught enrollees how to purchase their own domain name, set up a capture page, drive traffic to that page and correspond with prospect via scheduled respones.

    Thus the sharp decline in traffic to the corporate site after the launch.

    This information is provided for anyone that wants to look at the FACTS and not innuendo and suspicion.

    Barry :cool:

    PS Thus far the company has kept its promises and continues to offer greater value and more options. Two examples:

    1) NEW 24 audio set called Direct Mail Bootcamp -- to bring together the best minds and top performers in the direct mail business for four solid days, so they could teach the "Recipe for Success in Direct Mail" to others. And that’s exactly what they did. These are located in the audio section under information marketing center.

    This was recently added to the products and services available in the enrollees back office at no extra charge.

    2) A new option to participate in the 1 Step System without purchasing the product at the time of your enrollment has been offered. No product, lower cost, but you give up 4 training sales instead of 2.

    If these guys are so good how come they can't get any traffic to their own websites?

    And Rod's bio doesn't seem to match what's known about him by the BBB

    Can you answer the question I asked on the other thread before it mysteriously disappeared?
    There is only one question now, the others have been answered.

    In which state is this company incorporated?
    1 Step System

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anybody got anything to share regarding this outfit?

    http://1stepsystem.com/


    They are hiding behind "Domains By Proxy" which is a huge red flag.

    Interesting theory, except the jump is at Mar 2-4, not Mar 20.

    I don't pretend to understand your meaning, but - You can't "lay-off" a volunteer. It's my understanding that "the mods" are unpaid. I suppose they could be "un-moded". I wouldn't blame them in the least for throwing in the towel, themselves. Really, the idiots far outnumber the rational members posting on this forum. Fortunately, there is still some very good information here and candid debate for those who enjoy it.

    There is no doubt that the change of ownership has had an effect on this forum - but - that's just my opinion. (and I am a fan of george - don't actually know him - ohmygawd - I could be a groupie!).

    LOL, I am always in stealth mode so you can't see me online unless you are another moderator or admin. But if I don't answer your PM, it's a good bet I'm off doing something more interesting than moderating a scam forum. ;)

    I don't know about the missing thread. I didn't delete it.

    Namaste'

    Hun, this is a pretty old post and I've since learned that sometimes it's necessary for a thread to be deleted for all number of reasons.
    I just wanted to add that I think you guys do a great job and without your help we wouldn't have been able to expose Damon Westmorelands threats on the Greenzap thead.
    There were some strange things going on the day I started this thread and we all got a little nervous particularly as scam.com had a new owner.
    I was getting my usual dose of threats and abuse as were Techie and Blanche :)

    I was a little angry when the thread was deleted because there was a lot of information on the thread that I had collected and unwisely hadn't backed up.
    I've since learned to back up everything as soon as it's posted just in case.

    Since I started this thread I would like to suggest that it be removed.
