Default Nothing new. Back in the early 1900's, USA legislated against get rich quick.

While I feel social media has its place in helping with research and monitoring trends, I also feel many people online are still looking for some "secret key" to the vault.

With so much time devoted to seeking the "secret", who has time for "boring" stuff like testing and one-on-one conversations?

These have always been out there. Maybe, not as saturated as today. If you spend any time at all online, you will be bombarded with them.

They have always looked for the secret key, and many a now old GURU, revered and bowed to, gladly sold it to them.

I put the blame, not on the marketer or even LIAR in many cases, but on the ignorance of those who are easily duped.

I was 10 or younger when I learned a few lessons:
Money doesn't grow on trees.
You don't get paid for doing nothing.
If it sounds too good to be true, measure thrice before you cut.

And even Marlon Brando, said to Frank Sinatra Re: An ear full of cider.
