Last night I sent an email out to all my lists about a webinar I put on this morning at isuccess.com. The webinar went great, and is archived there.
Aftwards, I found the following email in my inbox:
People who's business is to tell others how to make money so they can make money are all frauds.

Well, I had to think a little bit about this, because I too feel that those who base their whole business on selling get rich quick type of schemes are frauds, and the email promoting the webinar was a little bit over the top.
But in the end, I simply sent him back this:
Hi (name removed),
Since all my emails either directly or indirectly (through
instructions on how to get traffic, etc) tell how to make money, you
should probably unsubscribe be clicking on the link below.

What do you think of how I responded? What lessons can be learned from both his emails and mine?
