Some of the entities that dislike this message board and dislike the work that Mr Ross does will state he is a convicted felon.
Also, just in case anyone goes around calling Rick Ross the center of a cult, or refers to us as the 'anti-cult cult', here are some matters to examine.
People come here only because they want to. If people do not like what they read here, they are free to log off any time they wish. We do not follow you to your doorstep or follow you by email and importune you to return.
Anyone who leaves these discussions is not threatened with dire consequences, such as condemnation to hell or x number of reincarnations.
This message board is a sanctuary where people can discuss any group they wish without the group or guru controlling the discussion to suit the group or guru's purposes. That is why so many enterprises dislike this message board.
1) Mr Ross makes no money from this message board. On the contrary, he has gone to immense toil and trouble to defend this message board from intimidation lawsuits. For more, read here.
Discussants are not in it for the glory. Some RR discussants were sued years ago by Gentle Wind and that suit was dismissed
3) Considerable latitude of discussion is possible, here, except for prosyletizing or self promotion of one's business products or bad behavior.
4) Mr Ross is a professional in private practice as an exit counselor and as a consultant.
Mr Ross keeps his presence on this message board to a minimum. He usually intervenes only to remind people to stay courteous, abide by the message board rules and, every so often, will give URLs to information for people to read.
Mr Ross does not allow his own personality to loom large on this message board. The discussion venue is a service, given away for free.
5) I have been active on this board for many years and only because I choose to do so. I am not aware that any participant on this message board has ever become Mr Ross's personal assistant, or shows up at his office to give him backrubs or foot massages.
I have never met Mr Ross face to face or even talked to him on the telephone, either mobile, handheld, or by landline.
