Hey Melaleuca, I hear that they were saying mean things about VanderSloot over at 4chan. You should send them some public cease and desist letters and post them on their forums.

If you have a billion dollars and you can't use it to threaten the peons, what good is it?

When the article said his company "peddles," I immediately thought Amway.

Makes you wonder how Salon has the cajones to write this piece. I don't know much about Salon.com, but do they have the kinds of resources to fend off such an attack should it be forthcoming from VanderSloot?

For a guy who makes "wellness products" he seems a bit mentally challenged.

Which isn't exactly a good endorsement of his products.

I like how you think that using financial resources to create jobs (using capital to hire lawyers) is an abuse of process. Capitalism is now an "abuse of process". Lol. Taxbongo has really whipped you guys into a socialist frenzy.

Go look at the comments for the article, there are all sorts of clearly paid shills concern trolling up a storm. The only part of this I'm really scared about is that Fark will get some new right leaning posters that only post on message.

"Melaleuca's get-rich pitches have in the past caused Michigan regulators to take action"

Which is hilarious given that our great mitten state is home to Amway.

FTA - Frank VanderSloot is an Idaho billionaire and the CEO of Melaleuca, Inc., a controversial billion-dollar-a-year company which peddles dietary supplements and cleaning products; back in 2004, Forbes, echoing complaints to government agencies, described the company as "a pyramid selling organization, built along the lines of Herbalife and Amway." VanderSloot has long used his wealth to advance numerous right-wing political causes.


For people who are always crowing about what hard workers they are, right-wingers sure do love them some get-rich-quick schemes.

And why are right-wing douchebags always rich off some bullshiat like this? Why is it never like they invented something kick-ass? Or built a big company that actually creates shiat?

99% of them seem to be either inheritors, corporate raiders, Wall Street traders, or jackholes who come up with rackets like this. (or some combination of thereof... or in the case of the Koch brothers inheritors who only enlarged their inheritance through theft and fraud, ripping off their customers by the ass-ton and stealing their oil)

Maybe this is why they're always on about how taxes will demotivate everyone and no one will do anything ever again, because unless they can get richety-rich-rich beyond the dreams of MIdas nobody will ever lift a finger to do anything anymore.

RIght-wingers believe that because for them it's true. They don't want to create things or build a better mousetrap or solve riddles or explore mysteries or build a better mousetrap. They just want to pile money in stacks. So, they don't follow any interest or passion... they just go looking for easy ways to take money from people.

I heard Frank VanderSloot likes to stab puppies and fark the wound. He, according to some, does this while listening to Lee Greenwood, but not always. Going by some accounts, he always does this while wearing his mother's prom dress, which fits loosely on him, because, supposedly, his mother is a fat cow. Also, allegedly, after he blows his load, he sucks the blood, jizz and bile out of the puppy until all that's left is a dessicated corpse. This is, anonymous sources say, the only way that Frank VanderSloot can get off. I can't guarantee that any of this is true, but it's what I heard, and the source seems reliable.

A overly litigious fundie billionaire with a penchant for suing anyone who dares criticize his farked up bigotry?

Named Vandersloot? Riiiiight.

C'mon, this is an Onion article, yes? They're making this guy up, right?

I don't think he's gay, but going from the article, he's definitely a pedophile enabler, which means he's probably a pedophile himself. Nobody exerts that kind of energy to stand up for pedophiles unless they've got some skin in the game. Or in his case, his dick in a little boy.

I miss their first cologne, and their original lip balm. Even the toothpaste was awesome. I still have the cedar box the cologne came in. Keep my earrings in there.

Does not surprise me at all that this guy is a jerk.
 
2012-02-21 10:07:48 PM
Hey, Frank VanderSloot. In my opinion, you look like a scum-sucking piece of shiat who'd steal from his own mother's purse (if you haven't already sold her organs off for quick buck).

That had them wavering, then they saw

Frank VanderSloot is a closeted homosexual/muslim and card carrying communist who raped his mother and evades taxes. Come get me you fascist asshole.
 
2012-02-21 10:51:12 PM
Try Googling anything negative about Melaleuca, and you'll find that Vandersloot and his minions make damned sure that the first thousand or so hits you'll get will all be shills for how the company is NOT operating fraudulently, that you WILL make tons of $ selling it, and that the products are all wonderful and perfect. There isn't even a Wikipedia page about the company, which says a whole lot.

I've been using basic tea tree essential oil now for several years, to cope with diabetic skin problems, and while the stuff is good it's for a limited number of uses. (Also, you can buy Dr. Bonner's liquid soap with tea tree oil in it). Unfortunately, it's a product that has magical properties attributed to it by credulous people. I can only imagine how a manipulative company like that can probably incorporate the stuff into a myriad of products, and then aggressively sell it like Amway.

As another poster above stated, you find a lot of these health product/herbalist cultic pyramid-scheme moguls in the top realms of GOP donors, spreading their obscene wealth.

I DRT(complete)A the first time around. This is the guy who sued to get an anonymous blogger exposed. I remember that trial. Wow, this guy really is an asshole.

A while back there was a thread^ about a guy who claimed trademark infringement because people were linking to his site using his name rather than the URL. Like this:
Patrick F. McCartan^

We ended up typing "Patrick F. McCartan is a "litigious douchebag" so many times that it was the first page of Google results for months.

So, I would submit the following theory: Frank VanderSloot is a litigious douchebag.

"Melaleuca responded by obtaining an after-the-fact copyright certificate for that lawyer's letter, then demanded that the hosting company remove the letter from the website on the ground that it constituted copyright infringement"

Well. That doesn't seem like gaming the system at all.

Now I don't want to start any rumors about this VaderSuit69 being someone as shady as Vandersloot, but this is just what's being reported by Gawker. Hopefully VaderSuit69 isn't very litigious.
