Don’t worry about the length of the email! You’re telling a story that is quite pertinent to the topic at hand. I hope you’ll stick around and help us with the people who are dealing with getting out of or with friends in MLMs. They do need a lot of help and hearing from people who have “been there, done that” is a big help!
As for the rules, the biggest issue we ever have with the rules is people that come in to recruit for MLMs. Please don’t feel like we’re going to jump down your throat over something when you’ve come in to honestly share with us. In other words, it’s more about the spirit than the letter. We’re here for people just like you, so welcome — and thanks for the compliment on my writing. It’s nice to hear that when so many people want to call me evil when I write what they don’t want to hear.
