i received your voicemail as well and i am going to publish our discourse while making your name anonymous.
please don’t feel bad about it — but i am going to present you with the best response i can come up with.
as much as i understand your frustration — i replied to your first email — you missed the prompts for subscription and somehow found an out of date subscription level that is much less expensive than the current member due amount — and less than 3 full days later you are threatening with legal action over a $17 charge.
considering that legal action costs around $150 per hour for just the most basic services — i am tempted to say: go ahead sue me that is ridiculous, but of course, i won’t.
i’d like to tell you, with the sincerest of intentions, that your angry threatening response is dysfunctional in a way that is directly related to tinnitus.
i “almost” just refunded your amount and told you never to come near me or any of my virtual presences ever again — but it took me just a moment to figure out how to respond to you. since i know that the kind of outrage and knee-jerk response you are presenting me with is symptomatic of tinnitus, and because i know that our materials can help you and others in a similar state — i have chosen to publish our discourse so others can benefit.
first off — just to explain: i am running curetinnitus.org at a loss — if you think that your $17 or even the current member payments have covered even the expense of just creating the website itself — you are dreaming. that is not the case. creating this website has come with very high financial investment that i’ve not come close to recovering. maybe that will change, and i certainly feel it would be appropriate if it did, but for now — this site is a gift.
yes, there are other tinnitus products out there — and they “look” to be making money — but frankly — i don’t believe them. they have testimonials that are very likely fake, and i simply have not found information products or support services that come anywhere close to what CureTinnitus.org offers.
the reason i feel it is likely that the testimonials on “other” tinnitus products are fake is because: 138 members have come through CureTinnitus.org — almost every single one has written to me personally thanking me for my help and for the help of the website. NONE have been willing to write a personal testimonial with name picture and citiy. NONE.
we have close to 1,000 people on our newsletter — some people have just read a few of the articles at CureTinnitus.org and have been able to make changes that almost immediately reduced their tinnitus — have they been willing to make public testimonials? NO.
so, that’s why i don’t, without investigation, “just believe” what the other tinnitus products say — and i certainly have a hard time “believing” their testimonials.
back to your response: you threatened to sue me for a $17 charge less than 3 full days after becoming a member.
is that an emotionally stable thing to do?
you are clearly in a charged state.
instead of telling you to leave me alone and never contact me ever again — i have sent you your login details (you do not have download privileges on Julian’s eBook), and i advise that you spend some time at the website — watch some videos — and IMMEDIATELY apply each of the 4 CureTinnitus.org Guidelines in your life.
You do not have any time to waste and if you treat others around you the way you treated me (threatening, angry, emotional, out of control), then it makes sense for you to take action right now before you damage yourself or others around you.
Please watch Cure Tinnitus Show #24 and get apply each of the 4 CureTinnitus.org Program Guidelines in your life ASAP.
You are only allowed to be a member if you take full (that is 100%) responsibility for your own health and actions.
