Hi SOY agreed.... Its so unbearable isnt it? This is the only place to get some relief!

Mootpointer Thu 11-Feb-16 19:02:48

Bot watching ... Found this!
Patronising tone alert

Melaw21 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:05:16

Not mlm, but the one show are running a story about stock trading scams! Similar kind of #workfromhome opportunity bollocks... They mentioned 'the brit method' as a dodgy company... Along with some others. Lets keep another eye open for these popping up on the horizon bot watchers.... Does make me think they would probably run a story on mlms too though.

Can I make a request at the start of this shiney new thread?

Can we keep this one lighthearted?

Please grin

lastuseraccount123 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:11:36

I think a mixture is good - lots of sillness and some seriousness and some new info to be shared.

As always, welcome to all lurkers, ex-bots (we will support you), Forever Living lawyers etc. We could not do this without you.

Melaw21 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:16:45

place marking. hi ladies, loving these threads, as a short term "bot" with FL I was sceptical from the start. so glad I've joined MN and found these threads. made me realise what a crock of shit FL was and gave me the push I needed to leave quickly!

Melaw21 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:23:37

Hi crazy πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ its good to have u on team parslai, you will be an asset! Glad you got out with your sanity and bank balance relatively intact!

I've just been invited to like a bot's FL page, it's "her name Ltd". I'm tempted to like it just to see how bad it is. Another bright woman with a good job - her mother won top 10 in Ireland or some shit. A quick look at the page (it's public) shows a few women sitting around her sitting room with their feet in cheap pound shop basins- this must be a "pamper night". I can think of nicer ways to spend an evening.

Melaw21 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:30:08

Wow peaner sounds totes amaze... You must be so gelly! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

RainOhJoyus Thu 11-Feb-16 19:46:52

Thanks last, agreed we need lots more pictures and posts of the sensible bots FB spamming

LeanneBattersby Thu 11-Feb-16 19:52:21

Not sure if this has been posted before. It's an ASA ruling on FL's claims about the nutrition in its products. It was upheld. There was also one last year that was not upheld and there have been several informally resolved complaints. It's always worth complaining to the ASA if adverts are misleading. I've found them to be very responsive.

As for barn-bot couple (thanks for the awesome analysis on thread 5 cubic), I've discovered I know their cleaner so I'm going to absolutely pump her for info next time I see her as, thankfully, she's known for being hideously indiscreet grin

Two really trivial points, partly as a place market as I better go and do some actual work (in my pjs, natch)

- what's happened to the yellow suitcases? They always used to be showing off their yellow suitcases at "success" days...... Admiring their fake delight in the cases was one of my favourite pastimes
- I think we have established by now that illiteracy is one of the unfortunate side effects of aloe, but I am still rather amused at the constant references to Forever's "infamous" lip balm/gel /etc grin

cozietoesie Thu 11-Feb-16 20:04:13

Good grief. To be considered 'indiscreet' by comparison in a village, she would need to be a veritable babbling brook. I can hardly conceive of such a person. grin
