Whether it's mentioned in the forums or not that site exists for the sole purpose of separating you from your money with a side diversion to the forums to appear benevolent.
The first 2 words in the title of the book? >>LOOSE WEIGHT<< Could that be any more obvious...............;+D
Glickman who is the author of the book and whose website it is is an opportuninst computer programmer with no credentials or any more experience than anyone who posts to these FREE forums that don't exist for the sole purpose of selling you something that you can get for practically free.
About the time the MC hit the gossip rags with Howard Sterns sidekick Robyn Quivers story a whole mess of carpet baggers appeared on the scene to capitalize on the chronic desperate dieters market that is a multi million dollar industry in this country. Glickman just happens to be one of the more visible ones that capitalized on the mindless idiot drone mentality of the desperate dieters looking for a "quick fix" "magic potion" to "Loose Weight and be Happier in 10 days". You have got to be a complete idiot to fall for a tittle like that. Fortunate for him that mass consumer market is full of desperate idiot dieters looking for that quick fix panacea.
Having the forum there is simply a marketing tool to drive traffic to the website where all his merchandise is for sale. This is a very common marketing/advertising 101 practice that accomplishes the main purpose of any marketing and advertising effort which is to simply drive traffic to your place of business under the pretense of being benevolent. Wake up and smell the lemonade ;+D
