I hate to even have to dignify this with a response, but unfortunately these are the type of people who perpetuate online scams.
Php script? What php script? There is none. Cookies? What cookies? I don't set any cookies on my site. Data Mining? I have no interest in ripping people off.
Spread fear all you want. If you actually wanted to be a productive member of society and enhance the quality of people's lives, you could try purchasing the book before providing all the "answers." Could you imagine being able to make money by applying yourself online and working hard versus misleading people with no facts to back up one single thing you've stated?
P.S. The price did change, and will continue to go higher. I've said this for weeks and I'm a man of my word. Bait and switch? Look up what a bait and switch is next time, along with cookies, and php. Try being honest in your posts rather than posting false accusations.

| 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.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
