In Response To: Alrighty, I've just got to say it............I hate the term "blubber blowout" (Elizabeth Morrow)
for you to say a single negative word, I figure you've almost *gotta* be 100% right :-)
I have a "however"....
> later it would tie into FF.com.
Actually I don't want to tie it into FFat, even later. Here's why...
On Formerly Fat, I just want to promote my own stuff. I don't want to sell *any* "easy weight loss" products at all (even though I'm sure I could make lots more money by doing so) because most of them go against everything FFat says.
I want a second site strictly to try as a niche site -- the problem being, I don't expect any big results because I realize it's a humongous niche with bzillions of sites already cashing in on the apparently permanent diet craze (at least until somebody comes up with a *real* fix and nobody will have to worry about it anymore) (I'm talking something other than the obvious fix called "self control").
I've never done anything like that before. In my mind, every site with my name on it required a huge personal investment, just like FIB and FFat. The whole concept of a site you put up and run on autopilot is something I never personally thought of doing. Those were for other people.
I want to try two -- one big niche and one tiny niche.
Actually, I might try three -- a fat one with a "guffaw" kind of name and a fat one with a gentle name, plus one tiny niche. If they work, then obviously I'll do more, as it seems most "niche site" people do. If they don't, I'll forget it and stick with what I know how to do.
So don't worry... I'm not going to destroy FFat by associating it with a gross name. I might get it up and decide I don't even want to include my own stuff (or I might not get it up at all, one never knows).
P.S.: I'm sorry about your innards, and I appreciate you and them speaking right up :-) (nice sentence)
P.S. Again: I'm sure bzillions of people will react the same way you do -- but there's also a whole world of fatties who laugh at themselves (my daughter and I are in that group). Don't ask me where because my memory is overtaxed and mostly gone, but I've seen groups on T.V. from time to time -- fat ladies packed into a gym (usually MASSIVE ladies) trying to work off the fat as they LOUDLY cheer themselves on with totally silly "fat" stuff. When the name came to me, that's the vision that flashed through my mind... not a degrading or insulting one (although, as you said, some people will see it that way, but trust me when I say some people were HIGHLY offended by my mild little Formerly Fat booklet where I said something to the effect of, "Let's call it what it is... we're FAT." Whoa doggy! Most emails were very positive, but that really ticked a few people off!)

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.
